Nebraska received a verbal commitment from Quentin Toailoa, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound three-star defensive tackle from Redlands East Valley High School in California. This is arguably the biggest commitment the Huskers received since the infamous landslide of nine players who backed out of prior commitments.

Recording 92 tackles and three sacks this past year, Toailoa drew a lot of interest from other schools, such as Oregon State, Washington, Fresno State and Arizona.

Nebraska has a slew of visits scheduled for January, the bulk of them arriving next weekend. In that month there could be as many as 13 visits scheduled for the school.

Commentary: What would help Nebraska's recruiting is if LSU's defense, led by Bo Pelini one last time, can hold Ohio State to under 10 points in the BCS title game. If that happens, the positive exposure Pelini will receive will be monstrous and will likely be the turning point among some prep stars who may be wavering.
