LINCOLN, Neb. — In a shocking announcement on Friday night, 4-star corner Brendan Radley-Hiles announced his commitment to Nebraska.

Radley-Hiles is the No. 5 corner in the 2018 class and the No. 36 player in the class. He previously said he was going to wait to announce his commitment until July.
The addition of Radley-Hiles is monstrous for Nebraska. Not only is Radley-Hiles one of the top recruits in the country, but he also brings in a mountain of hype that will no doubt help Nebraska build a top class in the Big Ten.
Radley-Hiles is Nebraska’s fifth commitment in the 2018 class, and the highest rated commit. He’s the highest ranked commit for Nebraska since 2008.
The 4-star corner will fill in a much needed spot for the Huskers. He also has plenty of connections to Nebraska, including previously playing with Nebraska freshmen Tristan Gebbia and Keyshawn Johnson Jr. at Calabasas High School (Calif.). He’s also cousins with 4-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey, Nebraska’s highest rated signee in the 2017 class.
