Nebraska was there from the beginning for David Knevel (Brantford, Ontario, CAN/Pauline Johnson C&VS), which helped the Cornhuskers stave off a late charge from Alabama.

The Canadian offensive tackle committed to the Huskers over the Crimson Tide and West Virginia in a ceremony Tuesday. He is the 17th commitment of the Huskers' 2013 class.

It is a big pickup for the Huskers along the offensive line. The 6-foot-8, 274-pound Knevel has the frame to be a bookend tackle for the Huskers.
