Nebraska's 2020 recruiting class just received a much-needed boost to in the form of Sevion Morrison. The three-star tailback announced where he'll be playing college football on Wednesday.

Scott Frost has shown that he can recruit talent to Nebraska thus far. However, the program doesn't have a very strong recruiting class for next year.

At the moment, the Cornhuskers have the No. 55 recruiting class in the country and the No. 11 class in the Big Ten. It's a group that only has nine commits.

With the regular season only a week away, Frost isn't letting it affect his ability to recruit.

On Wednesday, the Cornhuskers were fortunate enough to add Morrison to their recruiting class.

The Tulsa native chose Nebraska over programs such as Baylor, Kansas and Wisconsin. In total, the three-star running back had 21 scholarship offers.

You can watch his commitment announcement here:

Morrison is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 45 running back and No. 6 recruit from the state of Oklahoma.

His junior season of high school resulted in jaw-dropping production as he finished with 2,761 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns. Frost and his coaching staff will have the chance to tap into Morrison's playmaking skills when he arrives on campus next year.
