For the first time in a long time, Nebraska will be one of the more talked about colleges at the Army All-American bowl in San Antonio on Saturday. While no commits are playing in the game (at the moment), Nebraska will have seven legit prospects in the contest.

 So who do you need to watch?

 The California wide receiver has had a solid week of practices and will be making his college selection on Saturday during the national telecast.

 "The hats will be Alabama, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon State and Washington State," Calvin told’s Brandon Huffman earlier in the week. "All five have been on me super tough."

After visiting Nebraska in December, the Texas prep will be making his final selection on Saturday out of a group of three schools.

“Nebraska, (it was) the atmosphere there. I hung out with the players and everybody,” said Filiaga. “They all talked about the experience there, why they chose it, and how they loved it there. And definitely they think it’s the place for me as well.  And (also) the coaches.”

The five-star visited Nebraska in early September and has a longer relationship with Nebraska offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh compared to any coach recruiting him.

“The five hats will be Notre Dame, Nebraska, Stanford, Washington and USC,” said Sarell.  “It’s down to those five schools.”

Nebraska did an amazing job staying his recruitment and even convincing him to visit, when he looked like such a Stanford lean in the early going.

The biggest storyline might be what the California five-star prep decides to do. Holmes didn’t officially visit Nebraska or receive an in-home visit during the month of December, but did visit five plus times on unofficials.

"I will have hats for UCLA, Nebraska, Ohio State and USC," said Holmes.  

Nebraska at one point seemed out of the sweepstakes, but there is smoke.

Three other Nebraska prospects will be playing in the game.

All three players will be making their selection on National Signing Day. Lewis appears most likely to jump in the class, with Lenoir visiting in January.

“Nebraska is a good place,” Lewis told earlier in the week. “I like the coaching staff and now that they've added on Donte (Williams), it's higher because Donte recruited me when I first started to San Jose State then to Arizona and now at Nebraska.”

Johnson for a short time appeared to be leaning towards Nebraska. Recruiting can change in a heartbeat and with two more visits left, landing the four-star prospect might be tough. His brother (2018 class) committed and USC and the Trojans might be climbing his recruitment. In addition, Cal, Arizona State and Notre Dame are involved.

"I have most of the schools coming in January before I make my decision on Signing Day," said Johnson.
