Myles Farmer, a three-star safety out of Atlanta, is heading to Big Ten country. The 2019 recruit has committed to Nebraska football.

Farmer is ranked No. 876 in the nation. He's the 90th-ranked player in the Peach State, and No. 73 at his position.

His decision come after a visit to Lincoln, where he saw the Huskers' defense lead the way to a 9-6 win over Michigan State.

Apparently Scott Frost and his staff made a big final impression, giving him what he needed to make a college decision.

Myles Farmer made the call to commit to Nebraska football earlier tonight.

Via his Twitter account:

Farmer's full note:

"First off I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunities that he's gave me and putting me in this place that I am in. I would like to thank all the coaches that have recruited me so far and showed the interest in me that they have shown. I would like to thank my parents for making the sacrifices that they have made throughout this whole process, and I would also like to thank my Head Coach Kareem Reid and the rest of the coaching staff at my school for helping me become the player I am today.. I want to give a Big Thanks to all my teammates that's been with me since freshman year and Big S/O to all my boys that didn't make it to this day.. After a long talk with my family I am Honored to say I am Committed to University of Nebraska.. #GBR #longlivemumfords"

Kenyatta Watson, father of four-star cornerback Kenyatta Watson II, who works out with Farmer, spoke to the Lincoln Journal Star about Farmer, and had some impressive things to say.

“Stud,” Watson said of Farmer. “That’s the only way I know to describe him. Once he’s in college, I really think he’s going to be an outside linebacker. He’s 6-3 about 205 right now. He’s a big-ass kid. He’s a hard worker, he’s got unbelievable ball skills. He can play.”

Louisville, Minnesota, and NC State were among the other programs to offer Farmer.

With his pledge, Nebraska football's 2019 class is ranked No. 21 overall, and No. 4 in the Big Ten. The Huskers have 21 players in the class at the moment, and after Mike Riley's departure and the consequent attrition, they have room for a big class.
