DT Vincent Valentine signs with Nebraska

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Nebraska added a good player and an even better name to its defensive line on Wednesday when defensive tackle Vincent Valentine signed his letter of intent to play with the Cornhuskers.

Valentine is out of Edwardsville, Illinois and is ranked #18 amongst all defensive tackles in the 2012 class by MaxPreps.

At 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, the three-star Valentine should prove to be an anchor on the Nebraska line and a run-stuffer. Though he's also agile enough that he'll be able to get after the quarterback from time to time.
