Lincoln, NE - While Nebraska might not have the number of commitments desired by the fan base at the moment, there is no denying the quality of recruits the Huskers are getting.
On Friday morning, it became even more evident as the newest Scout.com/FoxSportsNext recruiting rankings adjustment came out.
Multiple players received a bump in the rankings, the biggest in form of quarterback commitment Tommy Armstrong. The Cibolo Steele (TX) quarterback climbed two spots, staying as a 4-star prospect. While two spots is not the biggest of jumps usually, it is when talking about a Top 15 player. Armstrong is now the No. 11 quarterback in the country and the No. 201 player overall in the country.
"Armstrong has continued to develop and his consistency throughout the season has helped him make a rise up the rankings charts,” said Fox Sports Recruiting Analyst Greg Powers. "Do not be surprised to see him rise even higher as rankings are finalized and more national scouts get the opportunity to see his senior film, a year in which he has not thrown an interception and has his team playing for a state title."
Also jumping up in the rankings was wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp. The wide receiver went from No. 41 overall at his position to No. 38 – also seeing an increase in his overall player position at No. 251 in the country. The Montini Catholic (IL) product had over 1,600 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2011.
Other players seeing a boost in their ratings were….
1.) Zaire Anderson – from 2-stars to a 3-star prospect
2.) Michael Rose went from the No. 13 MLB in the country to the No. 11
