Top247 CB Lee talks NU commitment

Nebraska got a big start to its 2015 recruiting class Saturday when Valor Christian (Colo.) Top247 CB Eric Lee announced his commitment to Nebraska.

Lee said he committed on Saturday to head coach Bo Pelini, defensive coordinator John Papuchis, and defensive backs coach Charlton Warren.

Lee said he didn't necessarily intend to commit on the visit, but felt comfortable with Warren as his position coach.

“Just getting to know coach Warren a little more and seeing the schemes they do and I can really see myself being a part of that,” Lee said. “I approached the weekend with the idea to give all the schools a shot, and Nebraska just felt like the right thing.

Lee earned his offer at Nebraska's football camp over the summer from previous defensive backs coach Terry Joseph. New Nebraska secondary coach Charlton Warren visited Lee last week in Colorado, and got his first experience around Lee during Saturday's junior day.

Lee said he clicked with Warren on the visit Saturday.

“It went really well,” Lee said. “I like him a lot. He's a military guy and he can keep me grounded and disciplined and he's very knowledgeable of the game, which made my decision easier.

Lee had been a frequent visitor at Nebraska, coming for the Wyoming game, and visiting last spring for the annual Red-White game.

Lee said he is still on track to be an early enrollee and chose Nebraska over offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State and Oregon State. He is the No. 115 overall player in the 2015 class according to 247Sports.
