5 things to know about Nebraska football's newest commit Myles Farmer

Myles Farmer announced he was the newest member of Nebraska football's 2019 recruiting class.

Myles Farmer became the 21st commit in Nebraska football's 2019 recruiting class on Sunday night. The announcement comes at the end of a weekend that was long looked at as quite important for the future for the program. Several visitors made their way to town and there was quite a bit of excitement about who might be the first of what is hoped to be many commitments coming out of the last couple of days.


He keeps the Georgia connection going

Since Scott Frost and company arrived in Lincoln, they've been trying to establish a pipeline to Georgia. The Peach state is rich and talented and most of the staff is familiar with the area from their time at UCF. Farmer is from Atlanta and plays for Westlake High.


Myles Farmer appears to be a bit of a diamond in the rough

While the Nebraska football coaches are likely celebrating this get, he's not a blue-chip prospect. Farmer is the 73rd ranked safety in the 2019 class and the 90th ranked player in Georgia. That doesn't mean he's not going to be a fit for the Huskers, it's just not a huge surprise that his commitment came out of nowhere.


He could be the first of several

Myles Farmer was indeed on an official visit to Lincoln this weekend. He certainly liked what the Huskers have to offer. It seems that when there is a commitment during a big recruiting weekend, there is always more than one. These players are talking to each other and maybe subconsciously selling the program to each other. It wouldn't be a huge surprise to see another commit coming in the next few days.


He's a dual threat player

While Farmer is projected as a safety in the college ranks he has definitely been a threat from both sides of the ball for Westlake High. In addition to defensive back, he put up decent numbers as a wide receiver. Considering how thin the receiver corps might be next year, there's a very outside chance we could see a position switch before it's all said and done.


Nebraska football beat out a familiar names

While Farmer wasn't the most highly rated prospect, he had plenty of attention from FBS schools. In total he had 19 offers. Minnesota, Oregon, Louisville and West Virginia were the other high profile Power 5 schools in on the safety. Scott Frost and company also beat out their old school, UCF who appeared to be close to winning the player over.
