ESPN 150 Watch List OLB/S Sean Fisher announced he would be a second-generation Nebraska Cornhusker Thursday. Fisher, an incoming senior at Millard North High in Omaha, will follow in his father's footsteps and suit up for the Big Red.

Fisher is a tall, rangy high school safety who shows very good upside. He has good speed and quickness and the frame to add some serious bulk. His long strides allow him to cover ground, and he displays a feel for defending the deep ball. He is tough versus the run and plays with a motor. While he displays the tools to be a college safety, his frame and aggression could see him land at outside linebacker in college. With his ability to add size and have a presence in the box, he could be a nice fit in the Blackshirts defense as a linebacker.

Nebraska seems to be taking steps every season toward regaining a dominant position in the Big 12 North. The defense has played a big part in the resurgence, but several of the Blackshirts key back-seven players in 2006 were juniors and seniors. The addition of an in-state prospect like Fisher with some versatility is big for Nebraska. He allows them to take steps to continue fill holes. Fisher has the ability to help at safety if needed early on and possibly grow in the mold of a Stewart Bradley or Bo Ruud at linebacker down the line.
