New Nebraska coach Scott Frost received his first commit Sunday evening when Oxbridge Academy safety C.J. Smith, fresh off his official visit to NU, announced on Twitter he was picking the Huskers

Smith, a consensus four-star from South Florida, attends the private academy, which is funded by one of the Koch Brothers. Oxbridge also produced another current Husker, Willie Hampton, who attended the school for three years. 

A 6-foot-2, 185-pounder, Smith had offers to Florida and Oklahoma, among other schools. He'd also taken visits to Ole Miss and Central Florida. Smith has a four-star rating from 247 Sports Composite service, ESPN and Rivals. According to ESPN, Smith is the No. 223 player in the nation. 

He brings NU's commit list on the season to eight, as the Huskers lost wide receiver commit Joshua Moore on Sunday. Moore penned a long letter he posted to Twitter.
