Florida Safety Brandon Drayton Commits To Nebraska Saturday

The Huskers snag a tall Secondary player after he visits for the Iowa game.

This could be the first of many verbals for the Nebraska Cornhuskers this weekend.

Brandon Drayton, a 6'3 wide receiver/safety from Largo, Florida, commits to Nebraska after his official visit yesterday.

Drayton, who is a mid-level 3 star, is currently the 126th best safety in the class of '16, while being the 121st best player available in the state of Florida.

Drayton had offers from Purdue, Miami, Iowa, Iowa State, Indiana, and Louisville, among others.

Drayton is the second safety being taken in this class with Marquel Dismuke, and the third secondary member if you add in DiCaprio Bootle.

Nebraska clearly needs secondary depth, and the fact that Drayton has some height and has enough athleticism to play both ways helps as well. One could see him being a kickoff return man from his highlights if needed. He probably won't be a superstar, but the solid ability should provide adequate depth for the Huskers.

This isn't the only commit today, and we'll have more on that in just a bit.
