Fyfe Commits to Nebraska

No scholarship offer from Nebraska wasn't enough to turn Ryker Fyfe away from the Cornhuskers. The Grand Island quarterback on Monday committed to Nebraska where he will join the football team as a preferred walk-on.

Fyfe had also considered Nebraska-Kearney, where he may be more likely to earn playing time early in his career.

"I'm thinking once Taylor (Martinez) leaves I'm going to have a good shot to compete for that job," Fyfe said. "That's what (the NU coaching staff) told me and that was a big reason why I committed."

Fyfe, on Friday, told 10/11 he was learning toward picking UNK. A weekend visit in Lincoln changed his mind. Fyfe said he was able to meet with all of Nebraska's coaches, along with academic advisors.

The Grand Island senior is considered the state's top quarterback prospect. Fyfe threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in the fall.
