Apple touts its new tablet as a medium to “see the web, e-mail and photos like never before.” With a little help from a famous alum, future Cornhuskers recruits will have access to that avenue.

Ndamukong Suh is the last of the NFL’s top-five draft picks to remain unsigned. In the meantime, the 6-foot-4, 300-pound giant is helping his college hit cutting-edge status.

During the four years that Suh clogged the middle of the Cornhuskers’ defensive line, an iconic piece of the locker room was a back-lit nameplate bringing some pizzazz to each player’s cubby. But the Detroit Free Press has learned that Suh is donating 123 iPads to the football program, which will replace those same nameplates at the top of every locker.

The Free Press notes that Suh first obtained the idea from a blueprint design for what a future locker room would look like. Suh’s ingenuity goes beyond his ability to rack up sacks, as he graduated in December 2009 with a degree in construction management engineering.

“It’s great to see the things you envision come to pass,” he told the paper.

And best of all, that reality came prior to signing the dotted line that will bring millions more to his bank account. With his rookie contract in hand,the defensive lineman should be poised to continue to “think different.”
