Nate Gerry Happy To Be A Husker

June 17, 2012, 10:35 PM by Matt Holsen

Nate Gerry Happy To Be A Husker
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

He received interest from several FBS schools but Washington football standout Nate Gerry made his decision yesterday, and he's headed to Nebraska.

The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder told head coach Bo Pellini to his face he wanted to be a Cornhusker yesterday afternoon. He says staff pulled him aside during his academic tour to tell him he'd be a safety for the Blackshirt defense and he couldn't be happier.

"The defensive coordinator dragged me and my parents out of the academic thing and brought me up to Coach Pelini's office. We had a nice conversation and that's when I told him I wanted to be a Husker," Gerry said.

The decision is now out of the way so he can focus on his senior season at Washington, but he says he can't wait to play for Pelini and company.

"He's not one of those guys that's going to blow smoke. What you see is what you get. That's one of the reasons I really like him. He reminds a ton of Coach (Brian) Hermanson at Washington. I love Coach Herm and I wanted to keep up the same stuff he does and that's one of the reasons I like Nebraska," Gerry said.
