This was not expected. But a nice surprise.

It didn't take long for the Nebraska Cornhuskers 15th verbal to decide on becoming a member of the Big Red.

Devine Ozigbo, a RB/LB out of Sachse HS in Texas got his Nebraska offer from Reggie Davis and Charlton Warren today, and took zero time flipping to the Huskers from Iowa State.

Ozigbo, who is the 55th best RB in the '15 cycle and the 89th best player available in the state of Texas, stands 5' 11", 225 pounds with a 4.73 40 yard dash.

Ozigbo has a litany of Power 5 offers, and had committed to the Cyclones back in July. He was considering a trip to Iowa to visit the Hawkeyes, but it looks like that won't be the case anymore.

Could Ozigbo be the answer to the flip of Kendall Bussey? Possibly, but then again, Nebraska's staff has talked about taking a multitude of Linebackers in the remaining spots in this class. So, this could work out both ways. I would list him as a RB till it's confirmed he's going to go to the other side of the ball.

With this verbal, it takes Nebraska to 33rd in the 247 Team Composite Rankings, while staying 5th in the Big Ten Conference.
