Foster Sarell, the No. 2 player and No. 1 offensive tackle in the country, spurned Nebraska on Saturday, committing to Stanford instead.
Sarell, a 6-foot-5, 311-pound lineman from Graham, Washington, announced his decision at the U.S. Army All-America bowl.
Nebraska was one of five schools Sarell visited, with the others being Stanford, Washington, Notre Dame and USC. He took an official visit to Lincoln back in September.
Sarell’s decision leaves Nebraska with 15 commits in the Class of 2017, including two other offensive tackles. The Cornhuskers’ class ranks No. 6 in the Big Ten and No. 32 nationally, according to 247 Sports.
Sarell would have been Nebraska’s first 5-star recruit since tight end Chris Septak in 2000.
