Nebraska Recruiting: Husker Newcomers Arriving in Lincoln

June 03, 2020

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 2020 recruiting class was another top 20 class put together by Coach Scott Frost and his staff. Beginning Dec. 11, the Huskers went on an incredible run to close the class. Nebraska added 10 scholarship players during those handful of days. Impact walk-ons offensive lineman Nouredin Nouili, defensive back Isaac Gifford and wide receiver Ty Hahn also pledged to Nebraska during that stretch. That wild finish caused some stress for Frost. 

“It was anxious,” Frost said at his signing day press conference. “It just kind of felt this year that a lot of kids we really were invested in and wanted in our program were making late decisions. I heard all the talk early on about how we were behind, and we were behind. We kind of knew that, but we were kind of betting on ourselves in recruiting and had a lot of really good targets out there and luckily we were able to land quite a few of them.”

Now it’s time for that recruiting class to arrive on campus in Lincoln. Nine players will be returning to campus after enrolling early back in January. Last year the summer enrollees mostly came to town between late May and early June. The Covid-19 pandemic has altered the timeline of players arriving at school so we’re just now seeing Nebraska’s newcomers arriving in Lincoln. Restrictions are lifted to allow voluntary workouts to begin on campus.

Speedy wide receiver Marcus Fleming has arrived in Lincoln. 

Defensive lineman Nash Hutmacher will have to take a break from being the king of fishing. He’s ready to arrive in Lincoln too. 

Intriguing walk on running back John Bivens is ready to roll. After sitting out from football for a couple years to recover from a knee injury, his story will be one to watch. 

Defensive back Ronald Delancy III has made his way to Lincoln from Florida. 

Oklahoma running back Sevion Morrison has arrived in Lincoln as a player to watch for early playing time. 

It’s an exciting time for these players and their classmates who are about to start their college journeys. There are high hopes for the 2020 class to be part of the group that helps turn the tide for the Huskers recent struggles.
