Running back Imani Cross of North Hall in Gainesville, Georgia committed to Nebraska on Thursday night, bringing Bo Pelini's 2012 class to 14 commits.
Cross had been down to Nebraska and Kentucky but committed to the Cornhuskers after an in-home visit from Pelini on Thursday night.
"It's official, he's a Cornhusker," Cross' father, Tim Cross, told HuskerOnline. "It's Nebraska. Great people, great atmosphere, coaches, coach (Ron) Brown, coach (Bo) Pelini, coach (Tim) Beck, I mean everything - all of the above."
"Because we weren't there for the official visit, him being so far from home, we wanted to be sure it was okay for him. It is okay. It's okay with us. It's his decision. And we support our son in whatever he wants to do. He had the other place, Kentucky, deep in his heart as well, but the deciding factor was the relationship and the definite place was where he'd be playing. It was as a Cornhusker and we got that cleared up tonight. It wasn't going to be a long drawn out process for him to make a decision."
Cross rushed for 1,706 yards and 24 touchdowns in 10 games for North Hall in 2011, averaging 8.9 yards per carry and 170.6 yards per game.
