Nebraska lands 2nd commit of the weekend

The Huskers landed their 2nd commit of the weekend on Sunday night. After picking up safety C.J. Smith, NU adds wide receiver Jaron Woodyard. 

Woodyard is a speedy JUCO from Arizona Western and ranked as a three star prospect. 

The 5'11" 175 pounder picked the Big Red over offers from West Virginia and Arizona State among others. Woodyard is the first JUCO commit for Nebraska since Bo Pelini's last full signing class in 2014. New NU running backs coach Ryan Held visited Woodyard earlier in the week & on Sunday the effort paid off. 

Nebraska's new offensive coordinator Troy Walters was also excited about the news of Woodyard's commitment.

Special teams and outside linebackers coach Jovan Dewitt also had a humorous reaction.

Earlier in the day, four-star receiver Joshua Moore decommitted from the Huskers. 

Nebraska now has nine commits for the 2018 class. The early signing day is Wednesday December 20.
