A commitment from Anthony Blue, the latest Texan to join the Nebraska football recruiting class of 2007, illustrates even further the Huskers’ effort to mine his home state for talent. 

Credit here goes to Ted Gilmore, the NU receivers coach who spotted Blue during a spring practice at Cedar Hill High School and persuaded the 5-foot-10, 170-pound cornerback to visit Lincoln this month.

Blue, a versatile defensive back and track star, told the Huskers Tuesday night of his decision to sign a letter of intent in February. He is the seventh high school senior and third from Texas to accept an NU scholarship offer.

Tight end Ian Harris of San Antonio and cornerback Shawn Sullivan of Brenham, Texas, also committed this month

Blue picked Nebraska over offers from Baylor, San Diego State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Indiana and UNLV. He was not offered by Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Nor were Harris and Sullivan.
