Nebraska hosts on final weekend

Nebraska is hosting six known visitors this weekend.

So who will be in town? Big Red Report has you covered.


Official visitors:

Lavan Alston, WR, 6-foot, 175-pounds, St. Bonaventure HS (CA)
The four-star wide receiver has taken four official visits: California, Arizona State, Oregon State, and Washington State. The Nebraska coaching gets the last shot at him and could put the cherry on top of the class with Alston. The senior wide receiver has elite speed and runs very solid routes. For the longest time we have thought Alston would end up a Husker – he has a strong relationship with head coach Mike Riley dating back to Riley’s tenure at Oregon State. Maybe the staff thinks different? Not only did they evaluate Omaha North wide receiver Marquise Lewis this week, they made a new WR offer in Texas.


Terez Hall, OLB, 6-foot-3, 205-pounds, King HS (GA)
The Georgia linebacker is currently in Madison checking out Wisconsin, but will be hitting Lincoln later this weekend. It’s always good to have the last visit for a prospect, but the senior is going to have some options. Quite a few teams, all looking for a linebacker, like his game.


Jordan Orber, LS, 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, Bishop Gorman HS (NV)
The nation’s No. 11 long snapper according to Chris Rubio will visit Nebraska this weekend after receiving an offer earlier this week. Don’t be surprised if he leaves a member of the class. The Husker coaching staff is obviously making the position a priority, whether some believe they should or not.


Angelo Garbutt, LB, 6-foot-2, 205-pounds, Hebron HS (TX)
The Texas linebacker seems to be down between Iowa and Nebraska for his services. Garbutt originally committed to Oregon State, but decommitted shortly after Mike Riley took the job at Nebraska. Scout.com’s Greg Powers says Garbutt is very versatile at the linebacker spot.


Darrin Paulo, OL, 6-foot-6, 320-pounds, Grant Union HS (CA)
The toughest to read because Paulo just doesn’t do many interviews. He has confirmed he will be visiting Nebraska this weekend after visiting Oregon last. It’s believed he will be a tough pull from the west coast, but he does like Nebraska offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh a lot. Distance likely plays a big factor here. Head coach Mike Riley visited Paulo on Thursday night.


Alex Davis, DE, 6-foot-5, 215-pounds, William T. Dwyer HS (FL)
Davis hasn’t been playing football long and is deemed a project by most., yet multiple schools have been trying to jump in late. A Georgia Southern commit, the Huskers will have a good chance of flipping the defensive end.
