Nebraska kept a key in-state prospect in the fold for the 2015 recruiting class Tuesday when DaiShon Neal announced on 1620 The Zone's "Sharp and Benning" radio show that he was sticking with the Huskers over offers from Michigan, Oklahoma and others.

Neal lauded his official visit to NU over the weekend, coach Mike Riley's approach to coaching and academics and relationships Neal had already built with current Nebraska players and 2015 prospects.  

Neal said Oklahoma had too small of a campus, and OU's "stadium wasn't even close to what Nebraska has." Neal said the Sooners wanted him to gain extra weight to fit into a 3-4 scheme. 

On his trip to Nebraska, Neal said he had a "good time," with his new "brotherhood." 

Michigan offered Neal, but an assistant coach also told him and the family that Neal couldn't go to Michigan without football because he couldn't afford it financially or academically qualify. That insulted the family. Neal decided ten minutes after the end of that meeting he was going to Nebraska.
