Nebraska welcomes 26 recruits in 2013 class

On signing day, the Huskers inked pretty much all the players they expected to. But while Maryland athlete Jacquille Veii chose to go with his home-state Terrapins to pursue his football career, Louisiana athlete Tre'Vell Dixon honored his original commitment to NU in a bit of a surprise to followers of the latest recruiting news.

Coach Bo Pelini and the Nebraska football team entered 2013's national signing day with a few holes to fill, but they also wielded a slew of scholarships to help them address those needs.

NU entered signing day with 25 known commits, including the late addition of lineman Dwayne Johnson, and ended with 26 commits after Dixon's flip back to the Huskers.

And while the Nebraska athletics department announced that 15 players will walk on for the Huskers (releasing a limited list of 13 of the walk-ons as is allowed by the NCAA), Bo Pelini said that Braylon Heard and Chase Rome are no longer with the team.

With Heard potentially gone for good, attention swings to the incoming running backs, Terrell Newby and Adam Taylor. Rome's departure and Thad Randle's injury may give some fresh-faced defensive linemen the opportunity to play prominent roles early in their careers.

And while the SEC continues its dominance, there are Big Ten teams and individual players to keep an eye on.

Nebraska only signed one in-state recruit to a scholarship, but Husker fans should be familiar with his last name. Tom Shatel explores Lincoln Southwest linebacker Josh Banderas, who is following in his father's footsteps.

Of course you can read our previous articles on the incoming Huskers (and our blog posts, too) and you can flip through player cards for each commit.

And you might want to evaluate the players for yourself with our signing day photo showcase.
