If you’ve been paying attention to the Spring Game visitor list, you know that the Nebraska staff has been working its tail off getting kids to visit on their own dime. While it’s not gonna happen for a few kids, the majority of the prospects that the Huskers are hosting this weekend could very well become signees in the ‘18 cycle.
To get a decent perspective, I hearken you back to last year’s visitor list, which seemed to be an interesting mix come now, but foretold a lot of the class.
Visitors that signed with Nebraska:
Visitors that had been committed to Nebraska:
Now, you can say that 9 of the 20 verbals being in Lincoln for the Spring game helped, even if over half of them were already committed to the Huskers. That being said, a couple of verbals would help the cause of Nebraska getting some mileage out of a big weekend where 34 guys alone are coming from the ‘18 cycle.
Who could pull the trigger and commit to the Huskers this weekend? Let’s get some names out there:

Since de-committing from USC in Feb, Allen & Nebraska have had some big-time mutual love going. Coming out early for the weekend can’t hurt the Huskers at all here.
The Brooklyn WR just got offered by the Huskers about 3 weeks ago, and is interested in this visit. While Maryland seems to be in the fray, the instant hype about the Nebraska offer may help the cause here.
QB Grant Gunnell ‘19:
Gunnell is high on Danny Langsdorf’s wish list, and the Houston QB has shared the interest. After visiting with Gunnell, look for the Huskers to push for the verbal here.
The fact that Bleich keeps visiting other schools on his own dime while being committed to Penn State shows that there is wiggle room there. At 6’6, he’s a tall Tackle right now and could be a guy who at the very least wants Nebraska to make their case over PSU & Rutgers. It’s not the first Penn St. commit that has seen love from Nebraska, as Micah Parsons has also noticed things.
We’ll have coverage of who showed up and who thought great things of their Saturday in Lincoln.
