OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The pandemic is changing the way college teams are gearing up for the future.

The University of Nebraska announced the commitment of Georgia running back Gabe Ervin on Tuesday.

He's the tenth player to commit to next year's class and the seventh since the team could no longer host recruits on campus.

"Certainly the recruiting advantage and disadvantage probably isn't tilted in our favor," said head coach Scott Frost. "We have to get kids to Lincoln, Nebraska, to see it, because we're recruiting kids from farther away than a lot of other people. And without the ability to get kids to Lincoln, it's made recruiting more of a challenge for us than maybe some people that are in areas with more recruits."

Nebraska's first game is set for September 5 against Purdue.
