On Sunday, the Huskers ended the commitment drought they had been on since April when Florida cornerback Tamon Lynum became the fourth member of the 2020 recruiting class. It was the third school he took an official visit to, having previously visited Kansas and East Carolina.
Man, where do i start. I have been blessed to make this decision. I would like to thank god & my mom for looking over me & guiding me in the right direction. I would like to thank everyone who has guided me & led me in the right direction. Committed to Nebraska University 🔴⚪️ pic.twitter.com/Dx5zY2Ke7F

However, something felt different at Nebraska which led him to commit on Sunday.
“It just feels like a family there,” Lynum told Hail Varsity. “It felt like home soon as I landed.”
The Floridian said that he has a great relationship with defensive backs coach Travis Fisher, saying that “[Fisher] is like a father figure to me.” His dad and uncle both joined him on the visit and loved the trip as well.
Lynum’s player host for the weekend was fellow Florida native Braxton Clark (who is also from Orlando). The Huskers’ newest commitment was happy he got to hang out with Clark over the weekend.
“Braxton is my guy, I have known him for some years now,” he said. “We are from the same city. He’s like a big brother to me.”
The corner who stands at 6-foot-2 and 177 pounds believes his length, quick feet and how well he moves his hips are the strengths of his game. Those are the types of tools that Fisher will love working with.
Lynum did have a parting message for Husker fans who are just getting to know him.
“There’s another Florida boy ready to come in and put Nebraska back on top,” he said.
