Baldwin High School offensive tackle Christian Gaylord became the fourth known commit of Nebraska's 2015 class on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 when he announced his decision on Twitter.

"Excited to join Husker family!" Gaylord posted on Twitter.

Gaylord, who attended NU's Junior Day event the weekend prior to his commitment, became the first offensive lineman of the 2015 class.

"It's a childhood dream come true," Gaylord told Scout.com. "My brother and I would wait around when were little for the Nebraska game to start. I remember telling my brother before games that I was going to play there someday."

ESPN describes Gaylord as having "very good height and size" and a "good first step," while noting that he'll need to shore up his pass protection skills and lateral movement.

Gaylord had offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Missouri, Minnesota and Oklahoma State. According to 247Sports.com, he was primarily recruited by offensive line coach John Garrison.

Gaylord's NCSA profile lists his bench press at 300 pounds with a squat of 335.

Baldwin City is just 16 miles south of Lawrence. Gaylord became the first commit from Kansas in NU's 2015 class.
