The visitor breakdown

This is the largest group of official visitors that Nebraska has hosted this season since bringing in five visitors just two weeks ago. This group has the element of Nebraska commitment, committed elsewhere and top uncommitted targets.

Nebraska hosts Michigan State for a divisional show down that could determine Big Ten Championship representation. The Huskers would obviously like to get there and would also like to leave a lasting impression on the seven official visitors in town this weekend. Let's have a look at who should be in Lincoln this weekend:

Official Visitors

Raymon Minor, LB/WR, 6-foot-3/215-pounds, Richmond (Va.) Benedictine
Getting a visit from Minor is a bit of a score for Nebraska. At the end of September Minor released a "down to six" list and the Huskers weren't on it. The four-star linebacker has the option to play linebacker at Nebraska, but the staff in Lincoln also likes him at wide receiver. Watch his film and you will see why. He's a SERIOUS athlete.

Zack Darlington, QB, 6-foot-2/205-pounds, Apopka (Flor.) *NEBRASKA COMMIT*
Darlington was already going to be a bit of a recruiting class darling because he's the quarterback, because he was talented and because Nebraska scored a player that Ohio State wanted. But you combine that with what Darlington says and the big picture and a lot of fans will follow Darlington whether he plays football at Nebraska or not.

Trai Mosley, CB, 5-foot-10/170-pounds, Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson *NEBRASKA COMMIT*
Mosley returns to Lincoln after impressing the staff with a blazing fast 40 time and showing good ball skills. Mosley got an offer following camp and committed later that night. Mosley has since taken unofficial visits to Baylor and Oklahoma (and then picked up an offer from the Sooners).

Demornay Pierson-El, WR, 5-foot-11/170-pounds, Alexandria (Va.) West Potomac *NEBRASKA COMMIT*
To me one of the players that isn't getting enough appreciation is Pierson-El. A true team guy, Pierson-El, moved under center for his senior year away from playing receiver (which he will play in Lincoln). The three-star commit is one of those players in the class already like Mosley who figures into special teams as well.

Chance Waz, DB, 5-foot-11/170-pounds, Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson *Colorado COMMIT*
Colorado commitment Waz is a team mate of Mosley and he picked up an offer from Nebraska about a month or so into the season. The offer from the Huskers really has his eye and he is making his first official visit a trip to Lincoln. Great move by Nebraska to bring him in with Mosley to let the two work on/with each other.

Joe Keels, DE, 6-foot-4/275-pounds, Highland (Kans.) C.C. *Wisconsin COMMIT*
Nebraska clearly wants to find a junior college defensive element for the 2014 class. Keels picked up an offer after a Nebraska bye week and later that next week he was off the board when he committed to Wisconsin. Nebraska still pursued and is getting a visit from the Wisconsin native (Kenosha). Keels at one point said that he wanted to be sure about his decision and that was the reason for the visit. It appears to be the Badgers of the Huskers here.

Josh Keys, DB, 6-foot-2/185-pounds, Perkinston (Ms.) Mississippi Gulf Coast
Many have been asking when the Nebraska staff would go out and find a junior college defensive back in the class and Keys could be that guy. Keys was an all-region and all-conference performer this past season and has good size for a defensive back. Keys is also an extremely physical player and that fits right into what Nebraska likes to do in their secondary.
