Weekend Visitors May Provide More Commits
As of this writing (since these things can change fast), Nebraska appears set to host at least five recruits this weekend. One player is already committed - Orlando defensive tackle Kevin Maurice. The other four NU is hoping to add to the mix. You'd expect at least one new Husker to emerge from this group and maybe more.
Tampa defensive end Ernest Suttles seems likely to choose Nebraska. He's considered a soft verbal to Iowa State, but history says that means he likely won't be a Cyclone. The only other team with an opportunity to land Suttles would be Kentucky, who is tentatively set to host him next week. But for the time being, Suttles sounds highest on NU. The coaches would be wise to show Suttles the depth chart at end. Three seniors graduate from the two-deep and a fourth (Ankrah) is set to leave after next year.
If Louisiana tight end/fullback Cethan Carter is willing to leave his home state, then you'd think Nebraska would have a good chance at him. LSU has offered a grayshirt opportunity and Louisiana-Lafayette would love to land him. Once again, the Huskers should pull out the depth chart for Carter. Tight ends Kyler Reed and Ben Cotton have exhausted their eligibility and Jake Long will next year. Additionally, both C.J. Zimmerer and Mike Marrow at fullback have only a year left. NU has backed off on the junior college tight end they had offered, which means Carter would likely be the only other tight end in this class (along with Husker commit Greg Hart).
The Huskers will also host a pair of wide receivers this weekend in Florida's James Clark and Texas wideout Quincy Adeboyejo. Both players still have a number of visits lined up between now and signing day, so a weekend commit from either player would be considered at least a mild surprise. Both players are highly regarded and would be good gets.
