Today’s Nebraska recruiting notes from yesterday and early this morning:
- The Huskers are officially in the final 3 for Los Angeles cornerback Deommodore Lenoir, who visited Lincoln this past weekend. They join Oregon and Mississippi State.
If you’re wondering why Mississippi State is in there when he hasn’t shown much interest before, it’s due to being listed to visit Starkville this weekend. However, some 247Sports editors are clashing on that info, due to a USC visit the very same day. That’s Southern California, not South Carolina.
Per Adam Gorney of Rivals, it sounds like the Nebraska staff is selling him on playing both offense and defense ($$) at Nebraska, with both Bob Diaco and Danny Langsdorf visiting in-home with him at some point early this week. I’m racking my brain at the last player to go both ways with the Huskers. Ndamukong Suh did it for Nebraska in his junior season, playing FB and even catching a TD pass vs. Kansas.
Husker Mike mentioned there was a WR that hurt his hand, that played DB in the bowl game back in the 80’s, possibly Dana Brinson. I know Stanley Jean-Baptiste did both for Nebraska, but we’re talking on the field in the same game.
- Another top list that Nebraska made is for Temecula athlete Michael Onyemaobi, although this one is a little more spread out and with teams that Nebraska should be in the lead for.
The Crystal Ball still points to Nebraska in this one, but TCU is listed as well, and he visited Ft. Worth this past weekend. With Nebraska being his final visit this coming weekend, it’ll be big for the Huskers to impress. Onyemaobi will be picking on NSD as well.
- In an odd twist, there’s talk of Nebraska hosting former West Virginia decommit in wide receiver Mike Harley. He decommitted from the Mountaineers on Sunday, and Miami is in the lead on this one in the CB department.
What’s interesting about Harley? Well, supposedly he was basing his verbal off of who won the Russell Athletic Bowl between..... Miami and West Virginia. Kicker was, he was committed to WVU back in JUNE.
There’s been some harsh stuff written about him, and I honestly can’t see the point of hosting him in the final weekend. Nebraska’s better off not using this OV.
- Wonder how much time the staff is putting in the air this week? Let this Donte’ Williams tweet give you an idea.
