Former Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will become a very rich man soon since he is projected to go in the top three of next weeks National Football League Draft, which prompted him to make a nice gesture.
For Suh’s sake he better live up to his promise.
According to the Lincoln Journal Star, via ProFootballTalk.com, Suh announced at Saturday’s Red-White Game that he’ll donate $2.6 million to the University of Nebraska.
Two million of that will be going to Nebraska’s strength and conditioning program and the $600 thousand will go towards a scholarship for students at Nebraska’s School of Engineering.
Suh’s pledge is nice, but many players before have made a pledge and never followed through and if he doesn’t follow through he will get scrutinized by the media.
In the end, Suh should have kept this to himself and when he actually has the money in a bank account then he should have announced it that way if he changes his mind there would of been no harm done as there was no official commitment.
