Surprises Possible Today
There's usually some intrigue for National Letter of Intent Signing day. An obvious piece is whether Jacksonville defensive end Blake McClain will stick with his recent commitment to Nebraska or not. Then, we'll want to see whether four-star offensive tackle Kenyon Frison and/or wide receiver Desean Blair pick the Huskers. The surprises may not end there.
Rumors of a mid-week silent visit by a top prospect committed to another program surfaced last week. We already heard about a silent commitment that wasn't involving wideout Markell Boston. It's quite possible that another player, perhaps one unfamiliar to NU recruitniks becomes known as recruits sign their letters of intent.
The other thing to watch will be the walk-ons. This season saw more than a dozen walk-ons crack the depth chart. A major highlight of the season involved Ron Kellogg's Hail Mary against Northwestern. Spencer Long might have been considered the best player on the team going into the season. Over the years, it's clear that the walk-ons matter. This group should be no different.
Signing day is always interesting. Enjoy the show!
