The Nebraska Cornhuskers coaching staff was expecting a few verbal commitments this weekend during their Junior Day weekend. They just landed their first one.
The Huskers get their second commitment of the 2017 recruiting cycle with the verbal of Columbia, Missouri Wide Receiver Jaevon McQuitty.
McQuitty, who is in town for Junior Day and watching Spring Football this morning, committed to the Huskers over teams like Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin and others.
He is the 4th best player in the state of Missouri this cycle, and the 52nd best WR in this cycle as well.
Let's make it honest here: the fact that the Huskers got McQuitty to commit today and shade his hometown college in Missouri makes this commit even more sweeter. That tells you the work that Keith Williams has been doing on this prospect.
Speaking of prospect, it's easy to see why a team would want McQuitty. He loves to battle for the deep ball, and possesses just enough height to help a team that, for possibly their best group of players, needs some. He's not a 6'5 superstar, but could bulk up that 193-pound frame he's listed at.
Two verbals for the Huskers, who had none this time last week. The number should definitely grow as well this weekend, and we'll be here when it does.
Go Big Red.
