It is still the 2018 recruiting cycle, but Nebraska football just picked up its first 2020 commitment. It is a good one too.

Athens (Ala.) three-star dual-threat quarterback Logan Smothers announced his commitment to the Huskers on Twitter tonight. Smothers was offered by Nebraska in May.

His commitment comes after he and his family took a 13-hour road trip from Alabama to Lincoln for an unofficial visit.

"After a 13 hour road trip with the family and a whole day on campus with the coaching staff, I am extremely blessed to announce I am COMMITTED to the University of Nebraska!" Smothers tweeted.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Smothers is the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He picked the Huskers over offers from Austin Peay, South Alabama, Southern Miss, Tennessee Tech, Troy and UAB.

With Smothers' commitment, Nebraska becomes the sixth Big Ten school to have a prospect verbally pledge for the 2020 class.
