Huskers edge in for a visit

The Huskers are working fast and furious on the recruiting trail. They are working nationally and the visits about the new staff and the situation at Nebraska appear to be working. Today, Nebraska was in to see one of the best wide receivers in the nation and it had an affect.

In a story published recently, LaRon Byrd talked about setting up his four remaining visits to Miami, Auburn, Mississippi State and to LSU. It seems that has changed some.

The 6-foot-3 and 210-pound wide receiver from Boutte (La.) Hahnville has set up a visit to Nebraska for January 11, a source at his house confirmed, but Byrd was unavailable for comment.

Byrd could potentially address a huge need at Nebraska as Nebraska loses starting wide receivers Maurice Purify and Terrence Nunn as well as losing commitment D.J. Woods earlier this year. Byrd is a physical presence as a receiver.

Byrd finished with 50 catches for over 630 yards and 13 touchdowns this year. He also picked off three passes from his safety spot. Last year, Byrd logged 30 catches for 447 yards and eight touchdowns.
