In huge win for Matt Rhule, Malachi Coleman signs with Nebraska

(Lincoln, NE) -- After committing, then de-committing, Lincoln native and four star recruit Malachi Coleman announces he is signing with Nebraska.

The Lincoln East senior made the announcement during a video interview with Rivals Wednesday morning. You can watch the announcement here. Coleman was recruited at the college level to play on both sides of the ball: off the edge on defense and as a wide receiver on offense.

Coleman committed to Nebraska while Mickey Joseph was interim head coach, but reopened his options after new head coach Matt Rhule was hired. Around that same time, Joseph was arrested on suspicion of strangulation and domestic assault and then ultimately let go from the program.

Coleman originally chose the hometown Huskers over programs like Oklahoma, Michigan, Oregon, USC and Georgia, but in recent weeks had narrowed his selections to Colorado and Nebraska. The Lincoln East senior helped lead the Spartans to back-to-back state playoffs. In his junior year, Coleman racked up 571 receiving yards and ten touchdowns.

He is among the nation's top 100 recruits.
