Nebraska hosted more than 30 unofficial visitors for the season opening game against South Alabama. There were plenty of targets to watch on hand in the 2020, 2021 and even 2022 class. One of those 2022 targets in Lincoln this weekend was wide receiver Quinton Conley. The Pembroke Hill School playmaker started his season off Friday night. He started strong with seven catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Conley also chipped in a scoop and score on defense. .
Conley (6-5, 190) visited Lincoln back in June for the Big Red BBQ. He made the return trip to see Nebraska in action.
“This was a great first game experience here in Lincoln,” Conley said. “Getting to see some of the staff again and walking through pre-game was great. I’m looking forward to coming back later this season and continuing to build a relationship with the staff.”
The sophomore didn’t make the trip alone. His dad and a family friend made the trip up to Lincoln with him. They were both impressed with the Nebraska staff. They also enjoyed talking with some other recruits and their families.
Nebraska was Conley’s first offer. So far, to offer and that has made an impression on the young player.
“I’m blessed to be noticed so early by a program as big as Nebraska,” he said. “The offer just motivates even more to live up to my full potential.”
Conley mentioned right away that he wanted to get back to Lincoln for another game this season. He has a big game circled on his calendar.
“I’ll certainly make another game later this season,” Conley said. “I was planning on making it to the Nebraska versus Ohio State game but I have homecoming that same night. So, if it ends up being a later game then I’ll have to look at my schedule and plan to take a different visit.”
Conley noted that academics is a high priority for him. He also wants the chance to make an early impact at his future school. His relationship with the coaching staff will also be key since he wants to be pushed to his full potential.
It’s early in his recruitment but keep an eye on Conley. I see him being a national recruit soon. Nebraska is very smart to get out ahead having hosted him multiple times already.
