Nebraska adds 2014 receiver Tolbert

Nebraska already had two receivers committed in the 2014 class so it came as somewhat of a surprise when receiver Jariah Tolbert (New Orleans/Edna Karr) committed to the Cornhuskers on Thursday.

Tolbert is a 6-foot-3, 185-pound receiver, and his coach, Nathaniel Jones, believes Nebraska is getting an outstanding prospect.

“He’s a big receiver. He’s one of the kids in our program with probably the most upside,” Jones said. “He’s about a 4.4 speed guy, and a great kid. He has a 3.0 GPA, and he does everything you ask him to do. I think he’ll be a big player.”
