Huskers in the mix

Nebraska instantly made a huge impact in Kenric Young's recruitment on Wednesday. Where does he have the Huskers at this point? Come inside for more.

The name Nebraska still resonates with plenty of recruits across the nation – this includes Kenric Young, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Gainesville high school (FL) who received an offer from the Huskers on Wednesday morning.

"I like them, they jumped into my top five already. It's a great school that fits me. I'm still open to anybody and don't have a favorite, but I definitely like them," Young told Big Red Report. "I know they definitely throw the ball and like to spread it out. I also know Taylor Martinez is a good quarterback and that Tim Beck is a good offensive coordinator."

Young, who's currently rated a three-star receiver, has BCS schools like Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Purdue, and Utah chasing after him, with others like Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, and Ohio also putting a scholarship on the table.

"I really want a school that fits me, with a great coaching staff and an awesome stadium atmosphere. The player's life style on campus is also something I'm looking and really that's all I need," said Young, who caught 32 balls for 567 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. "I'm a speedster (4.4 self-reported 40), and I love the deep ball. I love to use my athleticism to go get balls at the highest point down-field. I really try to spread the field."

While the Huskers have jumped into his top five, Nebraska fans should expect a commitment anytime soon from the nation's No. 104 wide receiver in the 2014 class.

"I want to take all five of my officials and I'm going to try to get to some of the schools that offered me over the summer," said Young. "I haven't made that list yet, but I'm going to hit some camps and will know that by the end of spring."
