Nebraska Loses Commitment From Four-Star CB Brendan Radley-Hiles

Nebraska lost its top-ranked recruit on Tuesday night, with the decommitment of four-star cornerback Brendan Radley-Hiles.

The IMG Academy star had committed to the Huskers back on April 14. However, some have thought the pledge was shaky for a few weeks now.

Last week, a recruiting expert predicted that he would ultimately flip to Clemson.

It is unclear where he will ultimately commit, but Radley-Hiles has backed out of his verbal to Nebraska.

Radley-Hiles's decision comes after an official visit to Oklahoma over the weekend. He has also taken visits to Nebraska (October 7), and has a trip planned to Clemson (November 18).

In April, before his Nebraska commitment, his top five schools list also featured Notre Dame, OU, Texas, and UCLA. Clemson had not yet ramped up its recruitment of the elite cornerback.

He also holds offers from Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, USC, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, and many others.

247Sports ranks Radley-Hiles No. 49 overall, No. 7 among cornerbacks, and No. 9 in Florida. The site's crystal ball now gives OU a 67-percent chance to land him, up on Nebraska (25-percent), Clemson, and USC (4-percent each).

With the loss of his commitment, Nebraska's 2018 class is now ranked No. 49 overall and No. 10 in the Big Ten.
