Top 2023 and 2024 talent from SEC country among Nebraska's expected visitors for Indiana game

Evan and Jimmy discuss the key amenities Memorial Stadium lacks and debate ways they can improve to draw more fans to the stadium and create a more energetic environment.

LINCOLN — A massive four-star lineman from Georgia, three-star running back from New Orleans, and top 2024 prospects headline the visitor list for Nebraska’s Saturday night football game against Indiana.

Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes Bo Hughley, a 6-7, 295-pound tackle, could be among the visitors, although Hughley has already officially visited and could pick a SEC to see, as well. With offers from Georgia, Auburn and others, Hughley would be among NU’s top prospects in the 2023 cycle.

Arnold Barnes, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound back from Booker T. Washington High School in New Orleans, is committed to Tulane but making an official visit to NU. Barnes received his offer during Nebraska’s bye week. The Huskers don’t have a running back commit in their 2023 class and wouldn’t necessarily need one, but the roster will be in flux based on the firing of coach Scott Frost and a new coach.

Demetrius Bell, a 6-1, 175-pounder from Nashville McGavock High School, is making the trip, as well. Bell, according to 247Sports, is part of a group of prospects who have worked with Sound Mind Sound Body Academy out of Detroit.

That would account for 2024 Belleville (Mich.) linebacker Jeremiah Beasley, who has offers from Michigan, Michigan State and Kentucky, among others and Harper Woods (Mich.) safety Jacob Oden, one of the nation’s top safeties in the 2024 class. Also, a number of 2024 prospects from Tennessee — Cleveland cornerback Marcus Goree, Chattanooga Christian running back Boo Carter, Gallatin cornerback Jaheim Merriweather, Murfeesboro Riverdale corner Jaylen Thompson and Murfeesboro Oakland safety Stephen Ellison — are expected to make the trip, as well.

Among in-state prospects, Bellevue West quarterback Daniel Kaelin, Omaha Central lineman Caleb Pyfrom and Ainsworth tight end Carter Nelson will be among the 2024 visitors. All three players have scholarship offers from the Huskers. Among 2023 in-state prospects should be Iowa State commit and Lincoln High receiver Beni Ngoyi. Ngoyi’s friend and crosstown rival, Lincoln East receiver Malacahi Coleman, will be officially visiting Miami this weekend.
