Buford High RB Gabe Ervin II has faxed his LOI & is officially part of the Husker family!
Nebraska landed the commitment of 3* Georgia RB Gabe Ervin back in June. The 6-foot-1, 205 pound Ervin chose the Huskers after also considering Arizona State, Michigan State, and Duke. He also had an offer from Georgia. I’m not sure how commit-able that offer was, but it shows that he was talented enough for the SEC powerhouse to even shoot an offer his way. Credit Ryan Held and Sean Beckton for this win as they offered him back in May 2019 and were all over him since.
According to 247 Composite, Gabe is rated a .8588 3 star, the 49th best back in the country and the 66th best player in Georgia. On Rivals, they have Gabe as a 5.6 3*, the 34th best RB in the nation and the 60th best player in the land that Sherman burned down. Under the tutelage of OG Held, I have no doubt Gabe will be a great player for the Good Guys.
Gabe is an extremely underrated back out of Georgia. On the hoof, he is athletically identical to former Husker RB Tre Bryant, who was becoming a stud for us before injuries took a toll. On tape, he is explosive & strong with a powerful running gait. I don't expect him to be a feature back right away, but he can be special for us down the road.
Welcome to Nebraska, Gabe! GBR!
