Husker commits sign their letters of intent to play football at Nebraska

Players across the country and local high school athletes signed their letters of intent today to play at the next level.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Today is the day athletes across the country sign their National Letters of Intent to play collegiate athletics.

The Huskers signed 19 players to the 2021 class on Wednesday during a drama free National Signing Day for the Big Red. All players turned in their NLI’s before 10:00 a.m.

“They’re bond in talking to each other and their determination to tune Nebraska into a winner probably held the class together,” said head coach Scott Frost.

The class includes five in-state players and two others from just outside of Nebraska in Thomas Fidone out of Council Bluffs and Fremont-Mills’ Seth Malcolm.

“When you’re from Nebraska and you come play at Nebraska you just bleed Scarlet and Cream,” Frost said.

Norrie tight James Carnie signed his letter Wednesday morning at Norris High School as one of two players from the Channel 8 viewing area to commit receive a Nebraska scholarship offer. The 6’5″ TE has dreamed of this moment since he was just three-years-old.

“For me to actually sign to my dream school, it means a ton to me, to my family, to my friends,” Carnie said. “I’m super excited about that.”

Also at Norris, Husker baseball commit CJ Hood officially signed his way to play for Nebraska.

“Growing up watching them, I have always dreamed of wearing that ‘N’ on my chest,” Hood said. “So it’s a great feeling to make it official.”
