It's been slim pickings for Nebraska Cornhuskers recruiting the past month since Fall Camp came around. However, there is a pretty decent visitor coming in for the McNeese State contest tomorrow morning.
Jaason Lewis, who is a 4 star ATH (and we mean it, he can play WR, RB, CB or S) will be coming into Lincoln for an official visit. Lewis, who is the 7th best ATH in the nation in this class and the 2nd best in Virginia, is off for his Ocean Lakes HS team. The fact that he's coming to Lincoln is a victory in itself.
It's quite probable that Nebraska will not get Lewis' services, as Tennessee and UCLA are in the fight for him. However, the fact that these kids have seemed to not visit helps Nebraska here. Who knows what may happen before NSD with a kid like Lewis.
Here are some other tidbits I've been noticing....
- Kevin Dillman is currently on the roster for the Denton Guyer JV Black team, as he lost his appeal to play in the Varsity (Texas UIL) team this season. Dillman, who is Nebraska's only QB verbal as of this moment, is on the roster. The problem is that, unless you go to the games, there's little in the way of finding out how he is playing. If you go to the Guyer JV Black website, you only see that they have played 2 games and they are 1-1 on the season. Before you wonder what happened in the 28-0 defeat against Allen, do realize that Allen HS is #1 in not only the state of Texas according to MaxPreps, but the #1 ranked team in the country by MP too. Stadium be damned, it's a pretty good program.
As far as Dillman, even though he's the only QB verbal that Nebraska has, there's no guarantee that Nebraska uses him as a QB. Tight End has been talked about with Kevin, and he could be a H back as well.
- A lot of folks who were fawning over Lamar Jackson for the Huskers had to feel the kick in the guts when he pulled the trigger to commit to Louisville last Saturday. That all being said, he does still plan on visiting the Huskers on September 20th for the Miami game, along with a lot of other folks that we'll go over when that day comes. Nebraska could be in play for a flip, but it seems like that if any school can flip Jackson, it may be Auburn.
- One kid to watch out for is Bo Wallace, a WDE/LB out of John Curtis HS in NOLA (the same HS as Hunter Dale). Wallace, who was supposed to visit Notre Dame this coming weekend, got a Nebraska offer back in May, could visit the Huskers in the end of his OV trips.
In a couple of weeks, the Huskers will have the first of their two big recruiting weekends lined up, with seven visitors and a couple of definite commitment opportunities. We will stay on top of the news and potential happy things here for you.
