Nebraska picked up a commitment late Thursday night: WR Dominick Watt.
The Florida receiver, a 3-star recruit for the 2018 class, appears to have celebrated his birthday by making his commitment to the Huskers. Watt played at Miramar High School his senior season after previously playing at McArthur High School.
“I have made up my decision which college I’ll be spending my next 3-4 years at,” Watt said in a note shared on Twitter. “I’ll be looking at this school the same way I looked at McArthur, ‘that I’ll be making my own legacy and history there.’ I’ll be committing to the University of Nebraska.”
Nebraska offered Watt, who’s 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, in December. According to 247 Sports, Watt ranks No. 68 nationally as a receiver. He’s also No. 69 overall for Florida recruits.
With Watt’s commitment, the Huskers rank No. 27 for 2018, No. 6 in the Big Ten and No. 1 in the Big Ten West.

Watt’s commitment is the second in only a few hours for the Huskers. Earlier on Thursday, 3-star ATH Miles Jones committed to Nebraska. The commitments can lead to signed national letters of intent on National Signing Day, which is February 7.
Watt previously listed Louisville, Pitt, South Florida, Kentucky, Nebraska and Cincinnati as his finalists.
