The Nebraska football program received some good news on Thursday afternoon, adding another top recruit to its ranks.

Four-star corner Henry Gray took to Twitter to announce his commitment to head coach Scott Frost and the Cornhuskers.

Gray started by thanking his family before getting down to the official announcement.

"This was a very hard decision and learned so many life lessons along the way. I am more than excited to say that I am committed to the University of Nebraska. This is only the beginning of my football career and I am very excited about what the future holds for me on and off the field," Gray said on Twitter.

Gray is the No. 12 corner recruit in the 2020 class. He's the No. 32 player from the state of Florida and the No. 201 recruit overall in the country.

Gray immediately becomes the third-best recruit in the Huskers' 2020 class, behind offensive lineman Turner Corcoran and wide receiver Zavier Betts.

Nebraska entered Thursday with one of the worst recruiting classes in the Big Ten, but the addition of Gray helps set the tone for the months to come.

Florida, Michigan and Ohio State were also in the hunt for the top corner recruit.
