Porcher originally committed to the Huskers last June. He took an official visit to Nebraska on Saturday, Sept. 17 for the Oregon matchup.

Proximity to family is ultimately what led Porcher to his decision. He hails from Orlando, Florida.

“I owe it to myself and my family to attend a school that’s closer to home,” Porcher wrote.

Porcher’s father, Robert Porcher III, joined Hail Varsity Radio on Monday to discuss his son’s decommitment.

“You know, we called Coach Parrella yesterday and just told him that he didn’t want to come out again,” Porcher III said. “Robert of course is close to his family but of course I have never missed any of his games since he started at eight. I wouldn’t have a problem . . . I wouldn’t miss any of them moving forward. His mom, my father, my parents, his grandparents on his mom’s side, we’re always there. Especially his mom and me and my father are at all the games too. He just said he didn’t want to go that far. He wanted to be closer to home and he wanted to be somewhere where everybody could get there and I understand that. I definitely understand that.”

As for the Huskers, they will now be looking to replace Porcher IV in the 2017 class. What are the options? We broke down a few on Hail Varsity Premium.
