After Nebraska visited Bolingbrook high school (IL) quarterback Aaron Bailey on Wednesday night, the junior 4-star prospect decided to pull the trigger committing to Illinois on Thursday – a moved considered to be a surprise when talking with most recruiting analysts.
With the spring evaluation process currently ongoing, Nebraska fans should expect new targets and offers to emerge at the position with the coaches on the road.
It's easy to forget, but 2012 quarterback signee Tommy Armstrong did not receive an offer from Nebraska until May last year. Many quarterbacks were extended scholarships before the Texas product. Armstrong, who ended as the nation's No. 5 quarterback and a 4-star prospect, was only a 3-star quarterback when the Huskers first put a scholarship on the table.
Rankings can change, new players can emerge, and others progress - it's not even May. So where will the Nebraska coaching staff go from here?
Here are maybe a few names to pay attention to.
Fox Sports Next Ranking: No. 33 QB in the country (3-star)
Reported Offers: Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Houston, Iowa State, Missouri, Purdue, and Tulsa
Notable: Scott not only visited Lincoln last year on an unofficial visit, but also for Nebraska's junior day. He walked away with good impressions and the understanding Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck would be evaluating him down the road.
