The 6-foot-1, 205-pound running back had 24 offers to his name and picked the Huskers over the likes of Arizona State, Duke, Georgia, Michigan State, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida State, Iowa, Louisville, Miami, Ole Miss and several others. Ervin becomes the 10th known verbal commit for Nebraska’s 2021 recruiting class.

The tweet — posted by the team’s general manager, according to reports — suggested that the players were making an anti-kneeling political statement.
