Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.
The page has been turned to October and as I’ve noted previously, this could be a big recruiting month for the Huskers.
A number of prospects that Nebraska has hosted for visits are slated to make decisions this month. That includes 3-start OL Dohnovan West, 3-star RB Wandale Robinson and 4-star WR Marcus Washington. Washington, the speedy pass-catcher from St. Louis, just announced that he has a date in mind for his announcement.
Oct.26th🎬 Decision will be made✅ https://t.co/lImV6VVmDZ

Washington took an official visit to Nebraska for the Colorado game back on Sept. 8. After that, he took a visit to Texas. That visit to Austin really seemed to move the needle for him. I wouldn’t count on Nebraska being the pick here when a decision is announced. The schools in consideration are Texas, Ohio State, Missouri and Nebraska.
Wide receiver is a bit of a need in this class, especially since the staff would like to take more than one in 2019. Nebraska will keep working down the board to pair a wide receiver with commit Jamie Nance out of Oklahoma.
>> Nebraska is continuing to try and do work in the state of Colorado. Last cycle they signed defensive end Tate Wildeman. Quarterback Luke McCaffrey and offensive lineman Michael Lynn are commits in the 2019 class. There are a number of 2020 targets in the state including a few that visited last weekend for the Purdue game.
One of those targets came out of the weekend with an offer. Roger Rosengarten, an unranked lineman from Valor Christian High School, picked up an offer from the Huskers.
After a great visit, I am blessed to say I have received my first Division 1 offer to play football at the University of Nebraska!!!Thank you to @BarrettRuud @SeanDillonNU @coach_frost and the rest of the staff for this opportunity #GBR 🔴⚪️🔴@SixZeroStrength @GoValorFootball pic.twitter.com/Axkz7XxjFD

Nebraska was the first school to offer the prospect.
>> This past week, Huskers running back commit Rahmir Johnson had a great game scoring three touchdowns in his team’s big 47-7 win. Thanks to Jersey Sports Zone for the video.
>> The Huskers released a new depth chart ahead of the Wisconsin game and there were some major shakeups.
>> Derek Peterson explored the unique ways Nebraska finds to be unsuccessful on third down.
