Do we have any confirmed visitors for Big Red Weekend? Any prospects sticking out as far as possibly committing that weekend or before?
No names necessarily stick out when it comes to guys committing before the two Big Red Weekends, but it would a surprise me if they got through the first two weeks of June without a commitment. Last year, there were seven guys that committed during the Huskers camp session and Big Red Weekend.
As far as potential visitors, we will start to really confirm attendees in the coming weeks. It's too early to get the official word from kids, as their schedules change quite frequently it seems. In addition, the spring evaluation process isn't over, meaning new offers could be going out and new unofficial visits could be scheduled.
Here are some names to pass along though as possible or likely visitors: Avery Anderson (likely), Eric Lee (likely), Michael Decker (likely), Carlos and Khalil Davis (likely), Christian Gaylord (likely), 2016 QB Dwayne Haskins (possible), Marquise Doherty (likely), 2016 OL John Raridon (likely), Cameron Townsend (possible), and Spencer Tears (likely). Like I said, expect this list to grow substantially over the next few weeks.
From a recruiting standpoint, what weekend will be the biggest for officials this fall?
My guess would be Miami. It's a primetime contest in early September, which usually allows for recruits to hit Lincoln easier with state football playoffs later in the fall. From the sounds of it, Eric Lee and Avery Anderson are wanting to have their official that weekend. If the two four-star products are in town, Nebraska will likely try to schedule others to let the 2015 prospects be pitchmen.
Why do the rankings only portray nine commits? I thought we had 10?
Omaha Central defensive end commit DaiShon Neal is yet to be ranked by Scout.com, he will be updated in the next rankings. When a player is NR this early in the rankings, he doesn't count towards the team total.
Any update on Jordan Cornish?
Last we heard, the shooting guard is still planning on visiting this weekend. At this point, with Wake Forest and UNLV left on his list, we think he goes with the Huskers. Visiting Las Vegas last will hurt Nebraska slightly, but it's our guess he's blown away this weekend.
