We're on commitment watch tomorrow afternoon as one of the top LB's in the cycle should pick the Huskers

- If you haven't heard yet, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Penn State Nittany Lions are the final 2 schools for Delaware Linebacker Avery Roberts, who will be committing around 3pm Central tomorrow afternoon.

Roberts took an unofficial to Penn State's Spring scrimmage this past weekend, and word on the street is that not only was Roberts not terribly thrilled, but most folks are thinking that Roberts is being cooled on by the Lions staff.

Roberts visited Nebraska last season for the Spring game, and his relationship with both Brian Stewart and Trent Bray should push the Huskers over the edge in this decision.

- It sounds like Defensive Line coach John Parrella has made some waves, not only with the visits this past weekend, but as he keeps plugging away at  some good talent on the phone as well.

Now, I don't know if a guy like Lichtenstein is anything more than a backup plan right now if  you have people like Deontre Thomas and Isaiah Johnson still in your sights. However, with the way that DL recruiting went last year and is depth-wise this year, the more players you take right now may be better off.

Meanwhile, it sounds like Nebraska did alright with James Lynch, the DT out of Round Rock, Texas who visited this weekend.

Now, it's interesting that Lynch has not gotten more than one offer (Nevada), even though his star level on 247 is not high. He was the Defensive MVP of The Opening's Dallas stop. Lynch is a Nebraska legacy and his middle name reportedly is "Husker". If Nebraska offers him (he could as well be a backup plan currently as well), expect him to commit.
