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 scout.com and rivals.com. Scout lists Sullivan at No. 53 among cornerbacks. He's No. 89 on the Dallas Morning News Texas 100.
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.
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.
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
