Sullivan says: "I think I can make a big impact there."

Did you know?

Sullivan was a high school teammate of quarterback Jarrett Lee, targeted heavily by Nebraska before he committed to LSU.


"He's 5-9 or 5-10, but he looks a lot taller than that because of the way he's built. On film, you'd swear he's 6-foot." -- Brenham coach Glen West

The gurus say

Ranked as a three-star prospect by both and Scout lists Sullivan at No. 53 among cornerbacks. He's No. 89 on the Dallas Morning News Texas 100.

About Sullivan

Committed to Texas Christian last spring before changing his mind to Nebraska in June, becoming the first of the Huskers' seven recruits from Texas in this class. Excellent 40-yard dash speed in the 4.4-second range and capable as a kick returner. Also plays with a physical and aggressive nature.

Our take

As Nebraska's situation at cornerback has improved, it takes urgency away from pushing players like Sullivan. Most likely a candidate to redshirt and then start his bid for playing time once Cortney Grixby, Zack Bowman and Andre Jones have moved on.
