While neither was totally surprising, it was still unfortunate to see two Husker recruits decommit in recent days. Florida wideout Dominic Walker is now headed to Auburn while Ohio safety Marcus McWilson now appears to lean to Kentucky.
If not for Nebraska's successful re-recruitment of Tre'vell Dixon, you might give up hope completely of the Huskers landing McWilson. But the window still seems open that McWilson will come to his senses and choose a winning program in Lincoln over the perennial doormat in Lexington.
These late defections may open the door for at least one additional recruit to be added to this class. No additional visits have been scheduled for the final weekend before signing day. But there's still time if Nebraska wanted to host players that previously were likely to go without an offer from NU.
The list of deserving walk-ons in Lincoln is long enough that the coaching staff might decide to focus all of their efforts on keeping the commitments they have. Still, we've seen Bo Pelini land some last minute prospects before, some of which weren't previously on the radar of Husker fans.
