Huskers Lining Up June Official Visitors

June 04, 2019

Now that the calendar has turned to June, it’s expected that recruiting activity will pick up for the Huskers. This month Nebraska will have a lot of prospects coming through campus for camps. The biggest of those camps will be Friday Night Lights No. 1 (June 14), Adidas Pipeline Camp (June 15) and the VIP BBQ and Friday Night Lights No. 2 (June 21). 

Also, the Huskers will be hosting unofficial visitors during the month. They have already hosted several, including wide receivers Xavier Watts and Will Nixon, linebacker Jeff Roberson, 2021 outside linebacker Ethan Downs and more. If that all wasn’t enough, summer official visits will be taking place this month as well. Here are the ones Hail Varsity can confirm at this time.

Each of these initial four prospects are key targets for Nebraska. For a long time, Simon was thought to be a strong Notre Dame lean in part because he has a brother on team. That doesn’t seem to be the case currently. Nebraska and Penn State have done a good job recruiting the New Jersey linebacker who also made a trip to Lincoln previously for a Junior Day. 

Gunnerson has long been a top priority for the Huskers. Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander is his leader recruiter and has been recruiting the Iowan hard. The official visit will be Gunnerson’s fourth trip to Lincoln this spring/summer. He will likely decide between Nebraska and Iowa State. 

Morrison is one of Nebraska’s top running back targets for the 2020 class. The Oklahoma native is the only prospect in this group making his first trip to Lincoln on the official which isn’t the ideal situation. However, with Morrison’s stated desire to make a decision before his senior season, the Huskers needed to get the visit in. Nebraska is battling Missouri, Arkansas and others for the back that had 2,761 rushing yards and 38 total touchdowns his junior year. 

Malik Reed may be the prospect with an official scheduled that the Huskers need to make up the most ground up with. He recently took his visit to UCLA, which he has referred to as a “dream school.” Reed was in Lincoln for the spring game so he does have familiarity with campus and the staff. When Hail Varsity spoke with him following that visit, he was intrigued by the idea of playing for Nebraska legend Barrett Ruud. Can the Huskers lean on that connection to steal a good player of the west coast? 

There will certainly be other official visits used by Nebraska this summer. Defensive tackle Jamar Sekona and wide receiver Will Nixon (who just came for an unofficial visit) are both prime candidates for officials this summer. Stay tuned to Hail Varsity for the latest as this all unfolds.
