Another Floridian is heading to Lincoln to be a Husker.
On Sunday night, Nebraska added a player at a big-time position of need for the 2018 recruiting class. 3-star cornerback Braxton Clark (6-3, 180) from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Florida, joined the class with this tweet.

The former Virginia Tech commit becomes the 19th member of the 2018 recruiting class and the seventh Nebraska commit from the state of Florida for Scott Frost and his staff. Nebraska now has three defensive backs in the class as Clark joins defensive back signee Deontai Williams and 4-star safety commit CJ Smith.
However, Clark is the only true corner of the group, making it even more important that Nebraska land him. The fact that they sent the entire coaching staff to see him for his in-home visit speaks to that.
The official visit that Clark took to Nebraska was the only official visit that he took as he committed to Virginia Tech after unofficially visiting back in May. Clark held double-digit offers including Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Boston College and UCF.
