On Thursday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers kept their roll on, hitting on one of their main targets since Mike Riley took over the program.
Mohamed Barry, a Linebacker from Grayson HS in Loganville, Georgia, becomes the 16th member of the Nebraska 2015 recruiting cycle on Thursday. Originally a Wisconsin commit, Barry flips to the Huskers after considering Miami, Wisconsin, and Kansas State, where he had a verbal back in June when he had a unofficial.
Barry, who is 6' 1" and 210 pounds, is the 94th best Linebacker in the 247 composite this cycle, and is also the 133rd best player in the state of Georgia.
Nebraska went on a big, big Linebacker search around the end of the dead period when the bowl games were finishing, and Barry was one of the bigger targets. He got his Nebraska offer back on January 7th, and has been hit hard by the staff. He visited last weekend after visiting Miami, and the Husker coaching staff made one big push to get him in the fold. How big was the push? EVERYONE SEEMED TO GO SAY HI TO HIM THIS WEEK.

Barry isn't the big time name some are searching for, but he looks to be a guy that will help fill the Linebacker void here in the next couple of seasons for Nebraska. Right now, that's the bigger issue.
This brings the Huskers to 16 verbals, which keeps them around 34th in the 247 National composite and 5th in the Big Ten Conference.
Who are the Huskers bringing in for the final weekend? What names could emerge in the final stages of the cycle? We'll have it all for you this week.
