LINCOLN — Nick Gates started high school at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman as a baseball player. He's still a good one, said football coach Tony Sanchez.
But Sanchez gushed Friday about the pigskin production and potential of Nebraska's latest offensive line commit, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound four-star prospect who sat atop the Huskers' recruiting board at tackle. NU finally secured Gates' pledge Friday afternoon over offers from schools including Alabama, Arizona, Oregon, Texas A&M and UCLA.
