Nebraska WR board/wishlist (5-15-17)

A look at the 2018 Nebraska wide receiver board at the moment.

Nebraska’s 2017 wide receiver class was good. The quality was there. Three commitments - three four-star prospects.

But another one or two could have been taken. Nebraska will only have one scholarship wide receiver departing after the 2017 season, but the Huskers will likely be taking a healthy number in 2018 class at the position - likely four. 

Here is a look at the board. While there is some debate on what position he will play at the next level, no one is questioning if the Los Angeles (California) Hawkins athlete is a four-star talent. Fuller jumped in the Huskers' class in early February with a surprise announcement.  

"They were actually on campus earlier today and I wasn't planning to commit this early but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that Nebraska is where I wanted to be so why wait any longer," Fuller told's Greg Biggins. "I wanted to get out of Los Angeles and experience something new anyway so Nebraska was the perfect spot."

Fuller has yet to visit Nebraska but plans to do so over the summer.

"Coach Dubs (Keith Williams) is one of the best WR coaches around and I'm excited to play for him. He has a great reputation as a coach and I know he'll be able to develop me as a player. I think everything just fits for me there. The offense fits me and like I said, the main thing is my comfort level with the coaches. I want to be around those guys and no one was recruiting me harder so that showed me a lot."

 Corona (California) Centennial four-star wide receiver Manuel Allen, a former USC commitment, pledged his services to Nebraska during Red-White weekend. 

"Manny is an interesting kid. Nothing he does really surprises me," said national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins. "When he committed to USC, immediately everyone said, 'that is not going to stick.' Sure enough, he backed off of it. There was talk about UCLA and then a few other schools. I literally talked to him the day before he committed and he said there was no way he was going to make his commitment. So I'm not surprised by anything. I think Nebraska is the school that has best chance to get his signature. It is a good opportunity for him." A St. Louis prep, Brown received a Nebraska offer when he visited last October. The most recent addition to the Nebraska class, has the speed to run past defenders. 

"Brown is a high-level athlete on both sides of the football with plus size and and length," Scout's Greg Powers said. On offense, he tracks the ball well and is a vertical threat in the offense. His best overall attribute is his straight-line, top-end speed. 

Brown held additional offers from Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Georgia, Kentucky, Wisconsin and more. An IMG Academy standout, Moore is actually transferring back home to Yakum to play his senior year with twin brother Jordan, a Texas A&M commitment. 

Moore has 50+ offers at the moment after he caught 27 passes for 527 yards and eight touchdowns for Yoakum (Texas) high school in 2016.

He is looking to make a summer decision on June 18. At the moment we think Nebraska is near the top, but not the leader. Our prediction...he ends up in College Station.

Approaching 40+ offers, Schertz (Texas) Samuel Clemens wide receiver Tommy Bush added Nebraska to his choices in February. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound prospect quickly this spring became one of the most sought after receivers in the country. 

“As a family we are carefully observing each offer and we are not going to commit immediately. There are no favorites and we are considering every option.” “It is really only God’s work," Bush told's Greg Powers over the weekend. "I give all glory to him. I work hard, I stay humble. I am just appreciative of the opportunity I am given."

Joining Nebraska are schools such as Florida State Baylor, TCU, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma State, Oregon and Michigan State to offer the Texas prep.

Bush finished with 395 yards and five touchdowns in 2016. His frame has colleges excited about what could be around the goal line at the next level.

The Sacramento (Calif.) Inderkum four-star prospect released a top eight that included Nebraska in early May. He said he would like to visit the Huskers at some point before making a decision. 

"I feel like Nebraska has one of the best wide receiver coaches, and there's no doubt that they could get me to the next level with what's happening there," said the soon to be senior in a recent article.
