Boe Wilson, OL From Lee's Summit, Missouri, Commits To Nebraska Thursday Night

The KC area Guard picks the Huskers over Louisville.

Corn Nation

The Nebraska Cornhuskers picked up a prime Center candidate on Thursday night.

Boe Wilson, the Offensive Guard from Lee's Summit West HS in the Missouri town of the same name near KC, put in his hat as he made his verbal to Nebraska.

Wilson, who stands 6 feet, 3 inches and 290 pounds, is a mid-level 3 star player with a rating of .8322 on 247. He is the 58th best Guard in the '15 cycle, and the 14th best player in the state of Missouri.

Wilson sported other offers from Louisville, Indiana, Purdue and Kansas.

Wilson received his Nebraska offer back on May 8th, and visited Nebraska for the first Big Red Weekend to work out in front of the staff.

Nebraska OL coach Mike Cavanaugh will probably see Wilson as a Center type of player with his height, although he could very possibly stay at Guard. He would be tied with DJ Foster as the 2nd shortest OL on the roster at 6' 3", so hopefully he could grow 1-2 more inches in his Senior year. (For those wondering, Dylan Utter is 6' 1")

You can claim Wilson is somewhat of a reach given his height and ranking, but at the same time, it's good to see that a guy inside the 500 mile radius wanted to come to Nebraska and give it a shot.

This gives Nebraska 14 verbals for the 2015 cycle after both Wilson and the addition of DiCaprio Bootle. Most folks still expect Nebraska to take up to 25 or even a couple more.

This verbal keeps the Huskers at 5th in the Big Ten Conference, and still in the Top 25 of the 247 National Rankings at 24.

Will there be more verbals? If so, we will be on top of it at Corn Nation. The staff alone makes it worth covering.

Update! Boe has announced his commitment on Twitter.
