The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had two Friday Night Lights camps this June so far, and they have resulted in two verbals for two different years in 2018’s Masry Mapieu and 2017’s Broc Bando.
Now, this weekend is the last set, and the list of visitors that are coming is probably one of the better ones that Nebraska has ever seen on any weekend, OV’s or not.
Matter of factly, I would say that getting all these kids on campus on their own dime would be a pretty damn high bar for any other weekend ever listed, to hell with gametimes and such.

Of course, I always make the caveat that this list is fluid, but right now, it’s about as solid as you could imagine.
Without further delay, here are the featured visitors for this weekend’s last Friday Night Lights at Memorial Stadium.
QB Tristan Gebbia - Nebraska commit
WR Keyshawn Johnson Jr - Nebraska commit
WR Jaevon McQuitty - Nebraska commit
WR Joseph Lewis - 5-star prospect who is coming with Keyshawn.
WR Tyjon Lindsey - another 5-star prospect who is visiting Nebraska again.
RB Nathan Tilford - 4-star Arizona verbal
TE Reese Leitao - Several P5 offers, but no true leader. From same HS as Phillip Dillard.
RB Jamari Peacock - Florida RB who has some big time offers.
WDE Robert Porcher IV - The NFL star’s son who has a ton of offers yet a very low ranking for some reason.
S Jaylen Kelly-Powell - 4-star Michigan lean from Detroit who has a ton of offers.
CB Ambry Thomas - Another 4-star DB from Michigan with heavy leans to that state’s schools.
TE Adam Boselli - No Nebraska offer, but another NFL’ers son.
DB Xavier Goldsmith - A 2019 kid visiting? Sure why not.
WR Cam Coleman - Another ‘19 kid who’s recruiting is blowing up currently.
DE Trevor Trout - A ‘18 kid who is already one of the top 5 players in the state of Missouri.
CB Brendan Radley-Hiles - Not the first go around for Nebraska with Boo either.
Oh by the way I'm in the 4 this weekend. ⚪️ #GBR— KING. (@Bookie_44) June 23, 2016
That is 16 kids, and 50 stars with the 14 ranked ones that are visiting, with 3 sons of former NFL players involved as well.
Quick Math: I count at least 10 4-star or better recruits, per the @247Sports Composite, who plan to be in Lincoln this weekend. #Huskers— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) June 23, 2016
That is some big time firepower.
The best peer recruiters are also in Lincoln, and they will be with kids who they are showing the Nebraska experience with, along with the entire coaching staff. I fully expect those that show in the stands to give as much love that is humanely possible, and of COURSE within the NCAA rule book.
Hope to see you all at Friday Night Lights from 6-9pm in Memorial Stadium! Come on out! #GBR pic.twitter.com/eiINe3O99P— Mike Riley (@Coach_Riley) June 22, 2016
- If you’re wondering who’s birthday it is...
Happy Birthday to everybody celebrating today, @JordanWesty1 and any recruits out there! #GBR— Mike Riley (@Coach_Riley) June 23, 2016
.. well, besides Jordan Westerkamp’s, it would be DB target Darnay Holmes.
Why isn’t Holmes hitting up Lincoln with his friends? Well, one reason is that it seems that Nebraska’s staff will be hitting up a satellite camp in the LA area being ran by Darnay’s father.

It’s interesting to me that Nebraska and UCLA are in this camp and schools like Ohio State, Michigan, Stanford and such are (currently) not.
- Another name you won't be seeing this weekend is Jamire Calvin, who told 247's Mike Schaefer that he's sitting this one out.
