Nebraska is still looking for possibly one or two more defensive backs to join the Huskers' secondary in the fall, but Nebraska secondary coach Brian Stewart went to social media on Tuesday to share his overall thoughts on the group in the 2016 class at this point.
Stewart can't mention names by NCAA rule, but currently the Huskers have CB.) DiCaprio Bootle, S.) Marquel Dismuke and DB.) Tony Butler committed. Dismuke is a member of the Scout.com Top 300. In addition, Scout.com projected athlete JoJo Domann is slated to play safety for the Huskers in year one. He could grow into a linebacker down the road.
Nebraska is also chasing Scout.com Top 150 member Lamar Jackson, who will make his announcement via a Bleacher Report video next week. The Huskers are considered the favorite by Big Red Report.
Junior college defensive back Devron Davis will be making an official visit to Lincoln over the weekend. After a trip never materialized this past summer and then failed to happen again before winter break, it appears the third time is a charm for Davis.
“I’m really psyched to see Nebraska. I can’t wait. Honestly, I want to see it for myself. I have a friend in Derrion Grim who is now there. He has said a lot of good things. I want to see it myself," said Davis.“I definitely think they are the leader right now. My cousin Steven played for coach (Mark) Banker. They were familiar with each other. I talked with Steve and he loves Coach B. Coach Banker says he sees a lot of the same in me. It’s a combination of everything. Keith Williams is a Stockton guy, I live in Stockton. There are a lot of stuff working between me and the coaches."
In ten games this season, Davis finished with 41 tackles and four interceptions. He also recorded two fumbles.
