Nebraska had a ton of top-ranked football recruits on hand for the opener against Fresno State on Saturday. While the recruits are usually the ones taking pictures for fans, the recruits became fans themselves when they found out actress Gabrielle Union and her husband, Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade, were also attending the game.
Damion Daniels, a four-star defensive tackle from Texas, said meeting the duo was one of the best parts of his visit.
“I really enjoyed myself, everything was great,” he said. “When I got to run out on the field with the team, when I met Gabrielle Union, it really wasn’t a dull moment down there.”
Union is from Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska, which is why the couple was on hand in the first place.
The actress is vocal in her support of the football team and even retweeted some of the recruits’ pictures from the game, including ESPN 300 wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones.
