With the work that Nebraska has put into Hawkins High School with both Joseph Lewis and Greg Johnson for the 2017 cycle, one has to think that the residual impact will help the Huskers in the future.
On Wednesday, it helped.
Nebraska, while in California closing out the ‘17 cycle, has gotten the verbal of four-star wide receiver Eric Fuller Jr. out of Hawkins HS.
Fuller is the 116th-best player in the 2018 cycle, the 17th-best cornerback in the ‘18 cycle, and the 16th-best player in the state of California. All rankings are based on the 247Sports composite ranking.
Besides the Huskers, Fuller boasts early offers from USC, Louisville, Michigan, UCLA and Oklahoma.
I think that Nebraska projects him as a wide receiver at this time, but you can see the athleticism on both sides of the ball. The Huskers will have time to figure out where they see him playing, maybe both sides?
The Huskers won’t have many spots available in ‘18’s class, so they have to hit on everyone they sign. Fortunately, they’re starting well.
