2014 Recruiting Board

IMPORTANT -- This is not the official recruiting board for Nebraska. It's a list of prospects formed by BigRedReport.com to give Husker fans an idea of who the staff may be pursuing.
QUARTERBACK: 1 (Updated 7-10-13)
It always felt like Zach Darlington would be a Nebraska Cornhuskers, but most fans will admit an offer from Ohio State had them sweating. Until just a week ago, Big Red Report projected Nebraska would take just one quarterback in the class. We still think it's likely true, but now list two as a small, remote, minor, microscopic possibility due to comments from Creighton Prep quarterback Easton Stick.

Mardre London

Running Backs - 1 or 2 (Updated 7-19-13)
Nebraska has proven time and time again, if a quality running back is on the board, they are interested – this year will be no different. It might be the deepest position on the team, but it doesn't really matter. Running back is usually the easiest position out of high school to move a guy to another position. Despite landing Lorenzo Stewart, who could be used as a kick returner and in the slot, they could take another player, especially if he possibly has value at another position. Nebraska isn't in a position to turn away solid offensive prospects. The guys left on the board are that.

Demornay Pierson-El

Wide Receivers - 2 (Updated 7-10-13)
The wide receiver position might be the deepest on the offense, but the graduation of Quincy Enunwa after this season coupled with Jamal Turner and Kenny Bell's senior year approaching means Nebraska needs to take at least two receivers and they got a pretty good pair. It appears they are done at the position, but if they take another one, it's for two reasons. The first could be because of Monte Harrison's possible baseball pro career. The second reason would be because they would feel the player could also play in Bo Pelini's secondary, much similar to a Tre'vell Dixon type.

Freedom Akinmoladun

Tight Ends – 1 or 2 (Updated 7-10-13)
After taking multiple tight ends in the 2013 class and the emergence of Sam Cotton in spring, it appears the tight end position is a little deeper than previously thought a few months ago. The commitment of Freedom Akinmoladun is a good one, good enough to be done at the position, but Nebraska would still likely take Henry Mondeaux.

D.J. Foster

Guards – 2 (Updated 7-10-13)
After taking two guards in last year's class, plus Dwayne Johnson who can play multiple positions up front, it's likely Nebraska is done at the position with the commitments of Foster and Farmer. But depending on who wanted to jump on board, they might take another one.

Frank Ragnow

Tackles – 2 or 3 (Updated 6-20-13)
The commitment of local Omaha product Mick Stoltenberg might mean the Huskers take more at the offensive tackle position. It's not a given he will play there, it could be at tight end as well, but three offensive tackles could be taken.

Matt Dickerson

Defensive Ends – 1 / Defensive Hybrid – 1 (Updated 7-18-13)
Nebraska landed three high school defensive ends in the 2013 class and a junior college transfer who actually has three years to play. The position needed depth in last year's class and got a major boost. Expect the Huskers to one true defensive end and an Eric Martin type hybrid in this year's class.

Peyton Newell

Defensive tackles – 2 (Updated 7-20-13)
Nebraska didn't land a junior college defensive tackle last year, but they got two pretty good high school ones in Maliek Collins and Kevin Maurice. With four defensive tackles taken in the last two years, don't expect anymore than two taken this year. The position is young, but viewed as an up-and-comer.

Terrell Lewis

Outside linebackers – 0 to 1 (Updated 7-19-13)
After taking five outside linebackers the past two recruiting classes, Nebraska won't be quick to take just anyone at the position. We actually wouldn't be surpised to see Nebraska not take an outside linebacker in the class.

Trai Mosley

Defensive Backs - 6 (Updated 7-20-13
With the graduation of Ciante Evans, Andrew Green, Mo Seisay, and Stanley Jean-Baptiste after this season, the cupboard isn't empty at the cornerback position, but will need restocking. Expect Nebraska to take four cornerbacks and two safeties. At this point, too many guys could project at multiple spots in the defensive backfield, so we will just do one category. As time goes along, we might split it up.

Special Teams – 1 (Updated 6-20-13)
