Potential Spring Recruiting Targets in Texas for Nebraska Cornhuskers

Scout Midlands-based analysts Greg Powers and Gabe Brooks take a best guess at two prospects on offense and two prospects on defense that Nebraska could potentially target and offer this spring...


-- Dallas-area powerhouse Allen High School is one of the most prolific programs in Texas when it comes to producing FBS prospects and the 2017 cycle will be no different. An Allen player Nebraska would be well-served to check out is offensive guard William Sherman, a 6-foot-3, 294-pounder who possibly has some position-versatility at the next level. He comes from an elite program -- in fact, Allen is the largest high school in Texas with more than 6,300 students -- and plays against top competition in practice and in games. Sherman has experience playing on the outside at tackle, but is likely a guard-to-guard player at the next level. He has three offers so far, including a P5 offer from Colorado. - Gabe Brooks


-- Nebraska just reeled in a commitment from Texas in Brenden Jaimes and I think I will stay on the offensive line when evaluating the next potential offer and go with Matthew Huhn, a 6-foot-7, 270-pound offensive tackle from San Antonio (Texas) Jay. Huhn is on the precipice of really blowing up on the recruiting trail and his most recent offer comes in from NU's Big 10 rival Michigan. The time to strike with an offer for Huhn could be now as he may seriously be contemplating playing out of state as these bigger schools step up to the plate to give hims something to think about. Huhn is a natural tackle and could add to what is starting to become an impressive two-year offensive line haul for the Huskers. And the best teams in Lincoln, Neb., are powered by a fierce and powerful line. - Greg Powers



-- A good offer option in the secondary would be cornerback Timarcus Davis from College Station High School. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Davis recently tested very well at The Opening Houston, where he ran a 4.63 40 with a blistering shuttle time of 3.95 seconds and an absurd vertical leap of 45.8 inches, the top vertical of the nationwide Nike tour so far this spring. Davis recently reached double-digit offers, including Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Purdue, Syracuse, and others. - Gabe Brooks


-- My pick on the defensive side of the football is Mohamed Sanogo, a 6-foot-2, 237-pound inside linebacker from Plano (Texas) West. Sanogo's first and currently only P5 offer was from Indiana in the Big 10 Conference and he would fit into the conference very well. He is known as a downhill middle backer who is very quick to the football, but that description does not do him any justice as he is a well-rounded player at the position who can track sideline-to-sideline and play in coverage as well. If the team is need of a true player n the middle of a defense, who is a sure thing against the run, a leader on and off of the field, with good grades, then Sanogo is the guy. I expect the offer list for the four-star to grow exponentially as schools see him this evaluation period. - Greg Powers
