Another June official visit — this time from Zachary (Louisiana) edge rusher Ashley Williams — turned into a Nebraska football commit on Sunday afternoon.

Williams, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound three-star, announced his decision on Twitter, and in an interview afterward made sure to mention the role new NU receivers coach Mickey Joseph played in getting Williams to even visit Nebraska on June 4.

Nebraska had strong competition for Williams — Minnesota, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Texas — but as Williams talked to his parents over Fourth of July weekend, NU emerged as the clear winner in his mind.
