Clinkscales changes mind: chooses Wildcats over Nebraska - Sports - Dodge City Daily Globe - Dodge City, KS - Dodge City, KS

Dodge City Community College defensive lineman Terrell Clinkscales announced Sunday afternoon on Twitter he changed his verbal commitment to continue his collegiate career to the Kansas State Wildcats. Clinkscales had verbally committed to the Nebraska Cornhuskers, but was still being heavily recruited by Kansas State.

Husker Army for D.R.E.A.M.

Husker Army is a Facebook Group run by Steve Malone. Malone also takes time to support Steve Warren's D.R.E.A.M. Foundation. We don't really do a lot of charity support - I keep waiting for someone to ask for our help but I have yet to hear from anyone; maybe it's because we're a more obnoxious site than the rest or maybe it's because I'm relatively isolated. I don't know.

In any case, I'd ask you to support Husker Army's contribution to D.R.E.A.M., and in the comments put "on behalf of Corn Nation". Let's see what we can get done here!
