Porcher IV is rated as the No. 63 weak-side defensive end nationally in the Class of 2017. He had received 34 scholarship offers and chose the Huskers over Big Ten rivals Indiana, Maryland, Michigan and Rutgers. His father, Robert Porcher III, played 12 seasons in the NFL with the Detroit Lions and was named to several Pro Bowls as a defensive lineman.
The Porchers spent the weekend in Lincoln for the program’s Friday Night Lights event and were clearly impressed with what they saw. Porcher IV’s decision gives Nebraska 11 hard commits for its 2017 class, which currently ranks 25th nationally and sixth in the Big Ten.
Coach Mike Riley expressed his jubilation shortly after Porcher IV revealed his decision.
