Nebraska Hosting #1 Athlete In 2017 Class This Weekend vs. Purdue

Another piece to the Joseph Lewis puzzle is coming to visit this weekend.

Greg Johnson Student Sports

On Sunday night, you may have seen what I wrote about my CB pick for Joseph Lewis to Nebraska. In there, you read that he may want to visit Arizona because his HS friend and fellow Augustus team mate Greg Johnson is verbaled there.

Well, when Nebraska wants something, they look at how to help the cause. If Lewis wants to be with his HS team mate, offer and host him on a visit.

As you can see, Johnson is the #1 ranked Athlete in America in the 2017 cycle according to 247sports. He committed to Arizona back on March 1st. The only reason Lewis is considering Arizona is due to Johnson being committed to the Wildcats.

Nebraska has simply shown every type of interest in getting Lewis to Nebraska. Johnson, who looks out to be (probably) a WR, would just solidify it, no matter what any West Coast guys say about USC.

We’ll have the list for visitors in a couple of days as the details fall in place. However, this is a big one for the Huskers.
