Yep, I'm wrong. And I'm glad I was wrong on this one.
Apopka (Fla.) quarterback Zack Darlington just committed to Nebraska over Ohio State. Huge get. #huskers— Sean Callahan (@Sean_Callahan) June 14, 2013
Zack Darlington, the Florida state title winning Quarterback form Apopka, committed to the Nebraska 2014 recruiting class on Friday afternoon.
Darlington, who had a pretty fair offer sheet, visited Lincoln with his father on the weekend of June 8th. He was scheduled to go to Ohio State the weekend of the 22nd, but that didn't seem to matter.
Here's his SBNation profile, per Bud Elliot.
This is the fifth verbal of the 2014 cycle for the Huskers, and they get the quarterback they wanted. Word is also that Darlington plans on enrolling early, giving him some time to learn Tim Beck's playbook.
There is going to be some battle between Darlington, Tommy Armstrong, and Johnny Stanton for that open QB spot when Taylor Martinez graduates.
MORE #BOOM THIS WEEKEND, PLEASE.
