Huskers to Host Two Top Prospects

October 21, 2016

Nebraska will look to push its record to 7-0 on Saturday and multiple targets will be in Lincoln to watch. The Huskers once again tapped into their California connections while also continuing to nurture their St. Louis pipeline, hosting a trio of unofficial visitors from the gateway city.

Official Visitors

Taariq Johnson
WR | 6-3, 205 | Buena Park, Calif.

Keith Williams continues to impress on the recruiting trail, as he was responsible for securing an official visit from talented receiver prospect Taariq Johnson. Johnson, who committed to California on April 3, is taking his first official visit of the cycle to see Nebraska play. Johnson, a 4-star prospect and No. 34 wide receiver prospect in the country according to 247Sports, has held an offer from Nebraska since Feb. 10, one of 12 FBS offers he has acquired to date. Johnson currently has 18 receptions for 309 yards and two touchdowns midway through his senior season. Johnson has no other official visits planned.

Greg Johnson
CB/S | 5-11, 185 | Los Angeles, Calif.

Nebraska will be hosting its second Pac-12 commit of the weekend in Greg Johnson, a 4-star cornerback/free safety prospect that is currently committed to Arizona. Johnson committed to Arizona on March 1, choosing the Wildcats over 29 other FBS offers. Johnson is the teammate of coveted wide receiver prospect Joseph Lewis, a longtime Husker target that has taken several visits to Lincoln. Nebraska is Johnson’s planned official visit and he currently has no other official visits planned.

Unofficial Visitors

•    Kamryn Babb: WR/CB | 5-11, 170 | St. Louis, Mo.
•    Cameron Brown: WR | 6-1, 175 | St. Louis, Mo.
•    Lamar Walton WR/KR | 5-7, 145 | St. Louis, Mo.

Nebraska is hosting a trio of underclassmen from St. Louis, headlined by the explosive Kamryn Babb. Babb, who is considered a 4-star prospect, has been a longtime Husker target, visiting Nebraska for its spring game last April. Babb currently has 15 FBS offers, with Missouri, Notre Dame and Ohio State being the main contenders for his signature. Babb is the former teammate of current Nebraska running back and kick returner Tre Bryant.

Brown, a 6-1, 180-pound receiver prospect, will be taking his first trip to Lincoln this weekend alongside his high school teammate Babb. Brown is currently rated as a 3-star prospect and currently holds six FBS offers. Nebraska has yet to offer Brown, but don’t be surprised if he leaves Lincoln with one following the weekend.

Rounding out the visitor list is Lamar Walton, yet another member of the Christian Brothers College High football team that will be taking in Lincoln this weekend. Walton, an undersized but explosive athlete, currently has no FBS offers. Don’t expect Walton to leave Lincoln with an offer, as he is most likely a walk-on target for the Huskers.
