It’s somewhat of a slow day, but it’s probably one of the last ones we’ll have through to next week. By this time next Wednesday, Nebraska and mostly all other schools will have their ‘17 kids signed and done.
Here’s what’s happened the last day or so:
- Nebraska WR target Nick Robinson moved up his commitment date and time to today.
He tweeted that he may push this back to NSD, but he deleted that tweet and stated that today is still on.

Like I mentioned yesterday, since he hasn’t visited Nebraska yet, don’t expect the Huskers to win this one. Matter of factly, it’s probably going to be Memphis, as that was his last OV.
Nebraska still wanted him as a back-up plan in case something happens to the Kurt Rafdal recruitment, but I doubt that visit happens this weekend.
- Speaking of Rafdal, he’s gone into radio silence after his visit to Iowa this past weekend. Most folks think that Nebraska still is the leader here, but pay attention to his scheduled LSU this coming weekend. What’s odd about this OV is that he does not have a offer from the Tigers yet, nor he may visit and leave without one. It sounds like Rafdal is a back-up plan for LSU if a litany of expected verbals.
- Nebraska RB coach Reggie Davis and OC Danny Langsdorf got in a visit last night with California RB target (and Oregon verbal) CJ Verdell.
Verdell did visit Lincoln a couple weekends back, and Nebraska RB verbal Jaylin Bradley has told folks that the staff expects 2 RB verbals this cycle. Verdell is realistically the only current RB target on the board, so it seems to be feast or famine on CJ.
- Davis and Langs wasn’t the only duo for the staff out and about across America. Mike Cavanaugh and Mike Riley went to Ohio and did a in-home visit with Nebraska verbal Matt Sichterman.
- And, speaking of Langsdorf, it sounds like he’s on the way to visit some 2018 talent in California and Arizona today.
