Newby had a meteoric rise as a senior, going from outside the Scout 300 to finish as a top 15 back nationally.

Nebraska was one of his earliest offers, and the Huskers had long been the favorite to land him.

While UCLA made an offer midway through the season and a big push to get into his final two, Newby's feeling for the Huskers never faded.

"I feel like I had the strongest connection with the Nebraska staff," Newby said.

Newby officially visited Lincoln in September for a game in which the Huskers routed Idaho State 73-7.

He becomes the second California native to join the Huskers class, joining fellow Southern California prospect Johnny Stanton, a four-star quarterback from Santa Margarita.

Highlights from Newby's incredible senior season:

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout.com Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout.com network since 2003.
