Nebraska Recruit Trend Meter 3.0

National Signing Day is almost here. A late look at predictions in the class.

The No. 1 safety out west has pushed his official commitment back multiple times, but I don’t think it has affected his decision. After a great official visit in November, to see Nebraska beat Michigan State, the Huskers land the four-star prospect on Tuesday and shoot up in the rankings because of it. He has told us multiple times his family really enjoys Mike Riley and crew. Nebraska will give him a shot at corner to start his career.

January prediction: Nebraska

Final prediction: Nebraska

A three-star prospect in the much talked about 500-mile radius, the Kansas product visited Nebraska multiple times during the recruiting process. But, it appears the lights and glitter of Clemson and Michigan late in his recruitment were major game changers for the safety/wide receiver. He visited all three schools within a week of each other, with Clemson being the final visit. We think he ends up with the national runner-up.

January prediction: Nebraska - Clemson

Final prediction: Clemson

 

The three-star linebacker visited Rutgers over the weekend, a school where his brother currently attends. Once thought to be a guy who would likely not be in the Nebraska class come National Signing Day, the Huskers have done a great job holding on to the New Jersey product. Decision time is likely soon and Rutgers is a little fresher in his mind, but we think he ends up sticking things out with the Huskers.

January prediction: Rutgers – Nebraska

Final prediction: Nebraska

 

A late offer to the in-state product is what we call a “game-changer.” A Wyoming commitment, don’t expect it to last long. The No. 5 player in the Scout.com Nebraska rankings, Engelhaupt is a projected linebacker at the next level, but is being recruited as a tight end. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder camped with Nebraska this summer, along with Iowa State and Wyoming. He also had reported offers form North Dakota, South Dakota and South Dakota State. 

Final prediction: Nebraska

 

It’s not very often you can add a four-star prospect late in the game, but it just be what Nebraska is doing with Bisharat. The Scout.com Top 300 athlete was committed to Stanford, but backed off his commitment late in the game and will likely not have a decision on National Signing Day. He’s 7-on-7 teammates with Lamar Jackson, who we think ends up at Nebraska. He’s currently being recruited as a running back. If he doesn't sign with a team on National Signing Day, we think Nebraska has a great shot to really get involved. Something to watch, really early to tell, but we are going out on a limb. 

Prediction: Nebraska
