At the end of 2007, Justin Blatchford was entertaining scholarship offers from a couple of area colleges. Despite that fact, when Nebraska asked him to walk on to the Husker program in January, the 6-foot-0, 180-pound safety prospect out of Ponca (Neb.) didn't take a lot of time to decide upon where he'd spend the next four or five years of his life.
