Nebraska Visitor Primer (11-12-16)

A look at the visitors Nebraska will have in this weekend.

A former Iowa State commitment, Hafiz put himself back on the market and is now considering Nebraska, Minnesota, Indiana, Syracuse, Memphis and Illinois. He’s also still considering the Cyclones. Hafiz hails from Sandalwood high school in Jacksonville, the same school as Nebraska starting corner Chris Jones. Interesting enough, the Hafiz has already visited Minnesota; the school Nebraska is playing this weekend.

Holloman has already officially visited Miami and Notre Dame, with an official trip to in-state Georgia still looming. The Bulldogs are considered the runaway favorite at this point, but the Army All-American is considering his options. It is obvious Nebraska wide receiver coach Keith Williams has done a solid job in his recruitment to get him to visit with so many other flyover schools as an option.

Henderson is a teammate of Holloman’s, but don’t think he’s just looking for a free trip. “I’m very excited because I finally get to see Nebraska for myself,” said Henderson in a text. A Tennessee commitment, Henderson visited Michigan State last weekend. He has said academics and life after football are huge factors in his recruitment – both pluses for Nebraska.

Muskogee high school (Oklahoma) wide receiver/defensive back Kamren Curl had been committed to Texas Tech since June. But in late October the senior put himself back on the market. Now other teams have jumped in the mix, if they weren't already involved. On Monday, Curl reported an offer from Nebraska. Two days later he had set up an official. Curl also plans to visit TCU.


The No. 1 DT in the state of Colorado, Ellis was a player the Huskers hoped to get in on early, but never made much ground during his junior season. But when Nebraska hired defensive line coach John Parrella everything changed. Parrella, a former NFL veteran, is a longtime friend to the Ellis family. Noah’s father, Luther, also is a former NFL player. Ellis down to six schools and the competition is stiff. The weekend could go a long way in setting themselves up for a late decision. We are still trying to get double confirmation that this is happening.
