Oak Lawn Richards junior three-star ranked wide receiver Spencer Tears (6-foot-3, 170 pounds) gave Nebraska his verbal commitment on Wednesday morning.
"I committed to Nebraska," Tears said. "I just called up the coaches and told them I was ready to commit to the Cornhuskers."
Tears pointed towards his recent unofficial visit to Lincoln as his main reason for pledging to the Cornhuskers.
"I had a great visit last weekend with my Mom. Nebraska was everything I was looking for in a school. I committed because I just felt it was the best place for me. We came home from the visit and I talked it over with my Mom. I loved it and she loved it. Once we talked I knew I was ready and I committed to Nebraska."
Tears chose Nebraska over offers from offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Ball State, Indiana, Purdue, Toledo and Western Michigan.
