After receiving six commitments over the weekend, Nebraska enters the three-day dead period with a few spots left to fill in this year’s class.
Saturday and Sunday were productive days for Nebraska. The Huskers snagged three verbals in the 2014 class: DE.) Blake McClain, DE.) DeAndre Wills, and QB.) A.J. Bush.
McClain and Wills are both three-star prospects. A former Florida State commit, McClain was a Semper Fi All-American this year.
Bush is the nation’s No. 88 quarterback, but is considered to have a ton of upside. He might be a project, but as the second quarterback in the class, Nebraska has time to possibly bring him along slowly.
The 2015 class was even kinder to the Husker coaching staff: CB.) Eric Lee, CB.) Avery Anderson, and RB.) Kendall Bussey.
Lee and Anderson are four-star players and considered the No. 1 and No. 2 prospect in the state of Colorado.
Bussey’s highlight film screams four-star potential, but currently has not been ranked by Scout.com.
The most exciting news regarding the weekend still might happen in the coming days.
In all, Nebraska had four official visitors in over the weekend. Three of them committed, while the staff still waits for a decision from Markell Boston. The defensive back has told Big Red Report his decision will come on National Signing Day.
On Saturday, Nebraska’s junior day featured plenty of other exceptional talent from the Midlands area. Blue Springs high school (MO) defensive tackles Carlos and Khali Davis, along with Baldwin high school (KS) offensive tackle Christian Gaylord are all thought to be close to possibly committing.
