Nebraska has picked up a quarterback commit for the 2023 class.
William Watson III of Springfield, Mass is a 3-star out of Springfield, Mass. He is ranked as the 36th best quarterback nationally, the 8th best player out of Massachusetts. He chose Nebraska over Tennessee, Arizona, and Boston College, among others.
Rivals has a nice piece you should read about Watson, including his relationship with Mark Whipple and his impressions of Nebraska. Here’s another one from Bryan Munson about what his commitment means.

You got a real one!
What it tells you is that Nebraska has their quarterback commit for the 2023 class early. Mark Whipple has been with our beloved Huskers only a short time, but look what he’s done. He’s brought in Casey Thompson, Chubba Purdy, and now this guy, an early commit.
Here’s some highlights!
Watson is the fifth member of the 2023 class. Remember Sam Sledge committed just a couple days ago.

Here’s an interview:
His nickname is “Pop”, which is... kinda neat.
