Covering four new Husker offers and the final in-state prospect the Big Red must lock up.

As the NCAA basketball tournaments begin to assault our sports senses for a while, what better way to help cut the thick fog of roundball like a knife through butter than with the trusty Big Board?

I'm still not quite ready to rank yet with one exception.

The Huskers have to land D.J. Foster. He and current Nebraska commit Luke Gifford are the two best players in-state and at this point, it appears very likely that the Big Red can close the deal.

With that said, let's have a look at some potential Big Board members down the road.

- Quarterback Darius Wade - I honestly don't recall the last time Nebraska had a player from Delaware on its roster, but if the Huskers press, Wade may have that distinction.

Considering Tommy Armstrong and Johnny Stanton will be the only two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, the playing time argument may not be a big issue unless Wade wants to play immediately. [Hudl] [YouTube 1] [YouTube 2]

- Defensive end Billy Hirschfeld - A huge Big Ten battle here, but the biggest threat is likely the home state Badgers. The Battle of the Reds only intensifies. [Hudl]

- Cornerback Arrion Springs - Sure, Nebraska will likely try to take a slew of cornerbacks this cycle, but Springs would be one of the overall crown jewels of the overall class.

He's one of the best at his position, period.

The San Antonio native is being pursued by some of the best recruiters in the area, so expect Terry "#BOOM" Joseph to have a heavy hand in working for Springs' commit if the Huskers drive hard to the hoop. [Hudl] [YouTube 1] [YouTube 2]

- Cornerback Dravon Henry - An extremely talented individual, Henry's a Swiss Army knife athlete. As such, Nebraska needs him at cornerback which is where he'd play should he commit.

One of the top prospects in the country, the Huskers would have to work against Penn State, a surprisingly difficult Pitt recruiting crew, and Ohio State's Luke Fickell if the Buckeyes press. [YouTube 1 (RB/DB)] [YouTube 2 (FS)]

This is likely the last Offer Edition of the Big Board for a while as after the list of players who were able to make the Red-White Game comes out, I'll pop the cork on the Big Board you all know and love.
