The 2021 recruiting class for Nebraska just got smaller.
That happened when 3-star defensive back Lardarius Webb decided to reopen his recruitment. He announced his decision Saturday afternoon on Twitter.

Webb—who is the son of former NFL defensive back Lardarius Webb—started his high school career at Beauregard High School in Opelika, Alabama. He has since transferred to Jackson Academy in Jackson, Mississippi for his senior year. This season Webb had 52 tackles with five tackles for loss. He was also credited with six pass breakups and one interception.
The Huskers were Webb’s first Division I offer back on June 26. The relationship blossomed quickly, even without Webb being able to visit Lincoln in person. Now he’s back on the market and looking for a new home.
The Huskers have suffered few decommitments under Frost. The team has had three this cycle before Webb. He joins Will Schweitzer, Chris Paul Jr and RJ Sorensen as players who have pledged to Nebraska then backed off.
Nebraska now has 20 players in the 2021 recruiting class. The team still has commitments from three defensive backs. Malik Williams, Koby Bretz and Marques Buford are all slated to begin their careers in the secondary at Nebraska.
