The Nebraska football and baseball teams received a big time verbal commitment over the weekend as highly rated quarterback and baseball player Bubba Starling committed to the university. Bubba will be a senior in Gardner, Kansas this upcoming season and is expected to be a top 5 round draft pick in the 2011 Major League draft. A lot of people think that Bubba will choose the MLB but he reported over the weekend that it would take a lot of money for him to chose baseball over Nebraska.

Starling was thought to be down to Nebraska and Notre Dame and he chose the Huskers over the Irish as Lincoln and the school felt like home. It helped out that his baseball team was playing at Haymarket Park and that will his future home while playing baseball as well. Starling also said that he is 100% done with the recruiting process and that he is not interested in any other schools.

Starling is the second 4-star dual-threat quarterback that has verbally committed to the 2011 signing class. Jamal Turner committed to Nebraska earlier on during the recruiting process. It will be fun to watch Turner and Starling battle it out and it will be interesting to see how the two do compared with other quarterbacks already on the roster. It’s safe to say however that the Huskers are set at the quarterback position for quite a while.

    So far the move to the Big Ten hasn’t effected recruiting at all. Welcome Bubba Starling.

    You think that NE’s 3 trips to the CWS in the last 8 years might have something to do with this. NE will have a field day in Big 10 baseball (they are awful). Erstad is only baseball/football guy I can remember at NE and he was a punter. Bubba will never see the gridiron.

    Competition at the QB spot makes for a winning team! Unfortunately for us fans, that makes it harder to get a good seat at the games . . . I’ve had luck at
