Nebraska hosted several 2014 prospects on the final visit weekend before signing day. Hoping to fill a few remaining spots, the coaching staff got one step closer to closing out this class.

Three-star defensive end Blake McClain (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) committed to Nebraska on Saturday while on his visit.

McClain tweeted out a “Boom,” similar to what the Nebraska coaches tweet when landing a commitment. The Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald confirmed his commitment.

He was the second "boom" of the day as 2015 defensive back Eric Lee (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Valor Christian) also committed to the Cornhuskers while visiting.

McClain had recently been committed to Florida State, but decommitted and moved quickly on his recent decision. Before the visit, McClain had said he would wait until after signing day to make a decision, but that obviously changed while on his visit to Lincoln.

The 6-foot-3, 258-pound defensive end will join high school teammate Chris Jones at Nebraska and helps fill the void from losing former defensive end commit Darius Slade, who flipped to Michigan State.

McClain gives Nebraska 24 commitments for 2014, five on the defensive line.
