Ronald Delancy

5-11, 160, DB

Miami (Fla.) Northwestern High School

247Sports composite: 3 stars (No. 1,251 overall, No. 104 position)

Rivals: 3 stars

ESPN: 3 stars

Other key offers: Miami, Louisville, Washington State, UCF, Missouri

How he got here:​​ This seemed like Louisville all the way. Up until Delancy visited Nebraska. The safety received an offer from Louisville in January 2019 and committed less than a month later. But after a Sept. 27 visit to Nebraska, Delancy decommitted on Oct. 2, then announced he’d be going to Nebraska on Oct. 8. Pretty quick turnaround.

Our take: ​​If there’s one thing Nebraska needs, it's depth, and depth at safety can go a long way. Nebraska currently has six scholarship safeties, four of whom are seniors. Delancy joins Myles Farmer and Noa Pola-Gates as underclassmen who will be taught to play safety and corner. With so many seniors, if Delancy doesn’t get in right away, he’ll need to be ready as a redshirt freshman.
