Kevin Dillman, a Swedish import who's currently a senior at Denton (Texas) Guyer High School, announced on Twitter his commitment to the Huskers on Saturday, April 5, after a weekend visit to Lincoln by the 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback/tight end prospect.

But after the firing of Bo Pelini and the hiring of Mike Riley, the Husker staff rescinded Dillman's scholarship offer.

His United States guardian, Peter Dames, told The World-Herald he was "disappointed" in the decision.

"But Kevin is a great kid with an incredible attitude and lots of athletic talent," Dames wrote. "So I guess he's back on the market for now. Should be a busy January."

Here is what Dillman tweeted:

Dillman was once a five-star quarterback recruit, but it was likely he'd play tight end for the Huskers after he committed.

"Me and my family are on a visit and it's been a great visit," Dillman told "I've had a relationship with coach (Tim) Beck for a long time. They did a great job of recruiting me."

I-backs coach Ron Brown assisted on Dillman's recruitment according to ESPN, while 247Sports indicates that Rich Fisher helped land the quarterback, who looks to start for the back-to-back Class 4A Division I Texas state champs.

Dillman, an Under Armour All-American and the seventh member (and first quarterback) of the Huskers' 2015 class, spent the last three years at La Mirada High School in California.

An scouting report calls Dillman a dynamic prospect with "raw arm strength" and presence, and a frame "that should continue to fill out."

Dillman was heavily recruited, holding offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Cal, Clemson, Florida State, Louisville, UCLA, Washington and others.
