The New Jersey Lineman goes away from home and commits to the Huskers on Friday

The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Linebacker coach Trent Bray pulls another Linebacker to the 2016 cycle, this time plucking a Jersey kid from the grasp of Rutgers.

Quayshon Alexander, a Weak Side Defensive End from De Paul Catholic HS in Wayne, New Jersey, commits to Nebraska on Friday.

Alexander, a 3 star DE that has a .8743 composite on the 247 composite, is the 27th best WDE in the '16 class and the 13th best player in the state of New Jersey this cycle.

Besides the offers to Nebraska and Rutgers, Alexander also garnered offers from Iowa, Miami, Arizona State, Michigan, and North Carolina among other schools.

Nebraska offered Alexander back on February 27th of this year, which was his second offer garnered.

Why is Trent Bray recruiting him and not Hank Hughes, you ask? Nebraska sees him more as a Outside Linebacker in their scheme, and that meshes with the fact that in the video above, he tends to do better when a smaller body (TE/FB/RB) is trying to block him. In my eyes, it could be a project, but at the same time, it's not a bad idea with the way Nebraska is going after Linebackers.

With this verbal, that puts the Huskers at  10 verbals, ranking around 34th in the 247 National Composite rankings. They are 6th in the Big Ten Conference.
