Recruiting: Huskers get OL commit at camp
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska’s Big Red Football School paid recruiting dividends Tuesday, as Highland (Ill.) offensive guard Tanner Farmer became NU’s fourth commit for the 2014 class. Rivals’ Illinois prep site,, first confirmed the commit.

A 6-foot-4, 300-pounder, Farmer is a three-star prospect according to Rivals and Scout, and currently unrated by 247Sports. Farmer’s a fast-riser, though, winning OL MVP at a Rivals camp in St. Louis — over, among other players, Lincoln Southeast’s D.J. Foster — which accelerated the recruiting process. Farmer quickly received offers from Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota and Illinois. He’s attended NU’s first three-day session this week.

Watching Farmer Tuesday, it’s fair to say he looks the part.

More to come later.
