Committed to Duke today. I thought we were in good shape to get this guy? Does this mean we have someone else lined up or was I wrong in thinking he was leaning Huskers?

Distance from home in the setting of a pandemic was probably what tipped the scales to Duke

hard to overcome that

Pretty sure he was a backup plan type guy. We already have Weaver at DE and look to be in good shape for Buckley and Savea.
you mean backup plan to the backup plan to the backup plan which was a backup plan to the original plan

NU losing a football recruit to Duke seems like the equivalent of Duke losing a basketball recruit to NU. But maybe not given our status today.

We didn't lose a recruit to Duke. Look at his rating and the rating of the DE commit we have and the two with CB's to Nebraska. It is clear, he didn't have the option to commit to Nebraska today. There are plenty of problems with our football program, but this isn't one of them.

Verbal to Duke was expected, if reports are true, should have fairly good DE/DT recruits coming our way.

Yes, no longer true today. The only thing Nebraska football and Duke basketball have in common is game day atmosphere.
