Nebraska picked up another recruit in the 2019 class.
JUCO running back Dedrick Mills announced his commitment via twitter this afternoon. Mills commits to the Huskers from Garden City Community College out of Kansas.
Mills started his college career with Georgia Tech, becoming their leading rusher in 2016 with 771 yards. In August 2017, he was dismissed from the Yellow Jackets for the ol “violation of athletic department rules”.
He played for Garden City in 2017, but played in only three games, his season cut short due to injury.
Like to take the time and say thank you Nebraska for a second chance. pic.twitter.com/RAEJcAttKr— Dedrick D. Mills (@MillsDedrick) September 4, 2018
He’s played in one game this season, a 52-28 dismantling of Dodge City. Note these comments about Mills:
Mills had 152 in the first half and finished with 267, capped by a 50-yard touchdown that highlighted the bruiser’s light feet as he spun in the hole to avoid a defender and broke down the right sideline to put the exclamation point on the historic Buster rushing performance — they passed for just 5 yards in the game.
Also note that his coach is Jeff Sims... who was at least partially responsible for Yoshi Hardrick, Lavonte David, and Brandon Kinnie to Nebraska.
Welcome, Mr Mills to Cornhusker football!
