Three Visitors Expected
Coming down the home stretch, the Huskers are expected to host three visitors for the final weekend before signing day according to Scout.com (as of early Friday morning). Two names might have become familiar to NU fans, the other may be new. Two have made soft verbal commits to other programs, the third is yet to give a commitment.
Texas defensive lineman DiMarya Mixon is a soft verbal to Missouri but will visit Lincoln this weekend. He visited Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Arizona State back in September but at this point he seems to be choosing between Missouri and Nebraska. He's listed at 6'3" and 265 lbs. While Scout.com calls him a defensive end he might also be able to play inside. Defensive linemen are like pitchers. You can never have too many, and NU could certainly use the help.
Louisiana wideout Devin Scott is a soft verbal to Louisiana (Lafayette) and will also make the trip this weekend. It does not appear that he's made other visits despite a handful of offers from other schools (Colorado among them). At 5'11" and 180 lbs., he's comparable in size to Husker defensive back Ciante Evans. He might be considered a replacement for the departed Dominic Walker.
Maryland's Jacquille Veii has not yet made a commitment and appears identically-sized to Scott. He appears likely to play cornerback though could be a receiver and might be used as a returner. He visited Iowa last weekend and also appears to be considering the Terrapins.
Conceivably, the Huskers could accept commitments from all three players. Particularly, if safety D.J. Singleton is counted as part of the prior class. Technically, they could also still sign offensive tackles Dwayne Johnson and/or Chongo Kondolo, who'd visited previously but then they might almost need to root for a player to either change their mind or not qualify academically before the fall. Going five for five with this remaining group seems like a bit of a longshot though.
It seems fairly likely that the class will grow however. By how many will become apparent by the end of the day Wednesday.
