Wide Receiver Decommits
Three-star wide receiver Spencer Tears has decommitted from Nebraska, though there's some talk that the decision may have been somewhat mutual between the coaching staff and Tears. He attended a football camp where it appeared he may not have been a great fit for the program.
Tears has good height at 6'3" but is still skinny at 170 lbs. Other than Purdue and Indiana, his offer list is mostly smaller conference schools. For those who follow recruiting rankings, he was probably next-to-last in terms of how he was evaluated when compared with other commits for Nebraska's class of 2015.
The recent transfer of Damore'ea Stringfellow could also be a factor. While a couple of years older, Stringfellow was a highly touted recruit which makes the receiver position that much more crowded.
A player like Bellevue West's C.J. Johnson could benefit from Tears' departure. Currently considered a three-star prospect by Rivals, the son of former Husker Clester Johnson has drawn offers from the likes of Ohio and Wyoming and gotten interest from Wisconsin. Johnson's a bit more solidly built at 6'2" and 181 lbs. He's also been a more productive player. Johnson has not yet been offered by Nebraska, but it may be just a matter of time.
