Matt Finnin - Offensive Tackle - Commits to Nebraska

A major area of need is beginning to fill thanks to a huge commit - literally and figuratively.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers need offensive tackles. That statement's pretty obvious considering they hosted four such hosses this past weekend and so far, they've reeled one in.

Finnin is ranked the No. 6 junior college offensive tackle according to the 247Sports composite index and was ranked No. 1 on this past week's Big Board.

The 6'8" 305-pound big man excels at pass pro and initially projects at left tackle by some.

Finnin has two years of eligibility to use while at Nebraska.

Combining Bo Pelini's penchant for getting JUCO players on the field as soon as possible and the need on the Huskers' offensive line's outside, expect the mammoth lineman to get plenty of repetitions.

His commitment doesn't come as a complete surprise as he visited Oklahoma last week, and the Sooners are fairly well set at the offensive tackle position.

Finnin's also been looking to end his recruitment and was visited by Bo Pelini just five days ago.
