Nebraska recruiting donuts (2-27-14)

BRR's Josh Harvey takes a look at some of the stories that have happened this week when it comes to Nebraska recruiting.

LINCOLN, Neb. - After a few quieter weeks to recharge their batteries from the grind of National Signing Day, the Nebraska coaching staff has been hitting the 2015 class hard again, making offers left and right the past week and a half.

On Tuesday night, the staff offered Milton HS (GA) outside linebacker Quarte Sapp, the three-star prospect confirmed the news over Facebook. The former teammate of Nebraska signee A.J. Bush, Sapp says he talked with the Huskers Charlton Warren for quite some time over the phone about the program.

Sapp has a strong list of offers that includes Arkansas, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

Davis twins confirm trip to Lincoln:


After attending the Huskers junior day in February, Scout.com's Bryan Munson has confirmed Blue Spring HS (MO) defensive tackles Carlos and Khalil Davis will return to Lincoln this weekend for another visit. The return trip before Nebraska's spring game has many experts feeling a commitment could be coming for the twins.

"Nebraska is both of our No. 1 (school)," said Khalil Davis shortly after the two left in early February. "We would like to make the decision soon, but my mom wants to wait a little bit. Nebraska is where we belong."

Carlos Davis is the nation's No. 14 defensive tackle and a four-star prospect. Khalil is the nation's No. 29 DT and rated a three-star prospect. Pulling the two from the Show Me State in a year where the Missouri Tigers saw much success would be considered a major win for the Huskers.

"To be considered a favorite, that is really saying something. Missouri offered them before anyone else," said Greg Powers, Scout.com national recruiting analyst. "Considering they just played in the SEC championship game and are in their backyard, it really tells of the tradition and success the Nebraska defense has."

Landing the pair and Christian Gaylord from the Midlands would be a major step in securing a strong class from the 500-mile radius for Nebraska.

Huskers offer elite tight end:


Nebraska offered 2015 Old Farms HS (Avon, Conn) tight end Chris Clark on Wednesday night. The 6-foot-6, 247-pound is the nation's No. 3 tight end according to Scout.com.

"Clark is a complete tight end who can block, get out and catch the ball and also be a factor in the red zone," says Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn. "He has very good hands and is a red-zone threat. He does a nice job running routes and he is a big, physical player. He also embraces the blocking portion of the game, and does a good job getting off the line of scrimmage cleanly. All around, Clark is a complete tight end who should have a big impact quickly in college."

Big Red Report added Clark's junior highlights to our Youtube Channel shortly after the offer was reported.

More donuts to pass along:

* Nebraska offered Delaware product Quadree Henderson on Monday night. He's the nation's No. 43 running back in the 2015 class, but it's expected he would play another position at Nebraska. Immediately it raised question when the last time Nebraska featured a Delaware product on the roster.

* The Huskers also offered Scott Patchan on Monday night. The three-star defensive end is from Freedom high school in Tampa, Florida. An all-around athlete, the 6-foot-6 defensive end claims a 4.53 forty and a 32" in the vertical. His offer list is 20+ deep.
