Huskers' plans for undersized athlete
By Vince Verhei
Demornay Pierson-El (Alexandria, Va./West Potomac) goes just 5-foot-9 and 172 pounds, but he still had offers from four programs, including Boston College, North Carolina, and Old Dominion. He turned those down, however, to commit to the Nebraska Cornhuskers at the program's Big Red Weekend.
According to a report on ESPN.com's RecruitingNation, Pierson-El rushed for 1,658 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior, but he expects to play in the slot and return kicks at Nebraska.
