The #Nebraska football team got some very good news on Sunday afternoon when four-star wide receiver #Joshua Moore announced he was committing to the Huskers. The Texas native who recently moved back to his home state after relocating to Florida to play at the IMG Academy picked the Cornhuskers over other finalists Florida State and Texas A&M.

Now the real work begins for the Nebraska football coaching staff, who will likely have to make sure they keep Moore in the fold. This isn't because the talented receiver is fickle, but there is bound to be a bit of a draw to play with brother Jordan. Jordan Moore is currently committed to the Texas A&M Aggies and it's because of that factor some believe Joshua might decide on Texas A&M.

Nebraska football would love the pull to be away from the Aggies

While Joshua Moore appears to be a pretty solid commit for the Huskers, there is always going to be a bit of heartburn about his brother playing elsewhere. The Nebraska football team would love to remedy this by getting Jordan Moore to change his commitment and join Joshua in Lincoln. Sadly, it doesn't appear that's going to happen anytime soon

Shortly after the Huskers got their man, Jordan tweeted out that he was "sticking to the script" with a picture of him in an Aggies uniform with "committed" written across the picture. Of course, just as some Aggies fans are hoping the recruitment process for Joshua isn't entirely over, Cornhusker fans can hope the same for Jordan. If there is one difference in the situation, it could be a question of whether there is room for Jordan at NU.

The Huskers' class is back up to 11 and head coach Mike Riley had previously said the staff was likely to take just 15 commits. One of those spots could indeed be used for a safety the calibre of Moore however.

Nebraska football is leaning on relationships as a key

When it comes to Joshua Moore, the relationships he has made over his life are often front and centre. The receiver made his commitment announcement on June 18, because it was the anniversary of an older brother's death. Moore has long talked about his love of the Huskers because of the relationship with receivers coach Keith Williams.

Now, the Nebraska football team will have to hope his relationship with Jordan Moore brings his brother to Lincoln. If Joshua starts feeling the pull the other way, the Cornhuskers will need to find a way to counter that quickly before signing day. #college football
