Recruiting: Future classes and a former commit among latest flurry of Nebraska offers

Recruiting: Future classes and a former commit among latest flurry of Nebraska offers


Barely three days into their tenure at Nebraska, the new coaching staff has already issued dozens of scholarship offers. Tuesday marked the most known Husker offers by the Scott Frost regime, including the first to prospects in the Class of 2020.

When three-star athlete Jeshaun Jones — a 2018 wide receiver from Fort Myers, Florida, with 30-plus offers — tweeted his Nebraska news at 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, it unofficially marked the 44th NU offer in roughly 76 hours since the football program announced Frost's hire.

At least fifteen Husker targets revealed their offers on social media Tuesday. That included one junior-college player — Arizona Western tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson, the top-rated juco tight end by 247Sports, who received a visit from NU running backs coach Ryan Held — and seven 2018 prep players.

Six of those high school players hold offers from many other top teams nationwide. Defenders are Jayson Oweh (four-star defensive end from New Jersey), Divaad Wilson (four-star cornerback from Florida) and Jaycee Horn (four-star cornerback from Georgia and son of former NFL Pro Bowl receiver Joe Horn). Offensive prospects are Jeremy Banks (three-star running back from Tennessee), Dominick Watt (three-star wideout from Florida) and Jones.

Banks, also a target of the previous NU regime who visited during the season, tweeted a picture of himself with Nebraska offensive line coach Greg Austin.

Tyrese Ross (three-star safety from Georgia) also tweeted that he received an offer.

The early signing period runs Dec. 20-22 this season, with the traditional signing day to follow Feb. 7.

In the 2019 class, a pair of New Jersey products reeled in offers in Caedan Wallace (four-star offensive lineman) and Josh Henderson (unrated running back). Donte Banton (unrated wideout from Florida) and Ge'mon Eaford (four-star linebacker from Florida) did the same.

Eaford was one of four players from Deerfield Beach High School in the Sunshine State to land Husker offers. The others were 2020 prospects Jaylan Knighton (three-star running back), Bryce Gowdy (wideout/tight end) and Deajaun McDougle (wideout).

Also of note, former Nebraska commit Brendan "Bookie" Radley-Hiles — recently given five-star status by Rivals — revealed Tuesday on an online post that Frost spoke with him Monday and Held visited him in person.

Meanwhile, the list of official visitors to Lincoln in the next couple weeks is beginning to take shape. Dual-threat quarterback Adrian Martinez, who was among the first offers by the new staff Saturday, tweeted he will be in town this weekend. Recruiting reports indicated the same for Arizona Western wideout Jaron Woodyard and fellow three-star teammate and running back Greg Bell.

Nebraska’s new football staff has hit the recruiting trail hard since Scott Frost was announced as coach Saturday, and the staff had no choice: Just two weeks remain before the Dec. 20 early signing period for junior college and high school prospects, and NU has to work quickly to not only shore up the remaining eight commits in the class but attract other prospects.
