Dwayne Johnson Commits to Nebraska over Arkansas; Oklahoma

B. Cavanaugh/CornNation

The offensive tackle from Bellaire, Texas makes it official.

Do you smell what "The Rock" is cookin'? There's one less Signing Day surprise as the Nebraska Cornhuskers pull in a huge get right before National Signing Day, literally and figuratively.

A 6'6" 275-pound young man from a city in the stone cold middle of Houston, Johnson held a fair amount of offers from around the country. He visited Lincoln the weekend of January 18 and loved it, but wasn't quite sure about pulling the trigger immediately.

Amazingly, Nebraska had to hold off the Razorbacks in the last few weeks as Bret Bielema was giving Johnson the hard full-court press. How in all honesty Nebraska won out on this one, I don't know.

He visited Arkansas this past weekend which made several Husker fans uneasy considering new head coach Bret Bielema's arrival in Fayetteville. Fortunately for Big Red fans, he couldn't seal the deal.

Johnson's pledge gives Nebraska 26 commitments and is the fourth offensive tackle in this cycle along with David Knevel, Zach Hannon, and Matt Finnin.

Despite the recent drama that the Cornhuskers have endured and the loss of Tre'vell Dixon (again), there shouldn't be many more National Signing Day surprises or coin tosses that Nebraska has to sweat.
