This weekend marks the first opportunity for Nebraska to host official visitors after its season ended last week. There are four total visitors scheduled. There is a good mixture of committed players, high school prospects and junior college prospects. Nebraska currently sits at 21 known verbal commitments.
Let’s breakdown where each prospect is in their recruitment.
3-star LB Garrett Snodgrass
The athlete from York High School has been a fixture on the sidelines pregame this season but has yet to take his official visit. He will do so this weekend, where he will likely spend time with his future position coach Barrett Ruud. Snodgrass will sign in December and is not an early enrollee.
3-star DT Ethan Piper
Another consistent visitor for the Huskers unofficially this season, the lineman from Norfolk Catholic will make the trip to Lincoln for his official visit. Piper tells me that he gets to Lincoln on Saturday after his basketball tournament in Grand Island. He has the ability to play either defensive tackle or end giving Mike Dawson added versatility. Piper is scheduled to sign in December and is not an early enrollee.
3-star DE/OLB Jamin Graham
Earlier this week, the defender from Alabama hosted coach Scott Frost for a visit. Now, Graham will make the trip to Lincoln for an official. On film, Graham is a tremendous athlete who, at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds with speed, fits the type of player Nebraska needs in a hybrid outside linebacker. He holds over a dozen scholarship offers and is considering Southern Miss among other schools in the South.
JUCO DB Tony Wallace
The defensive back could be a familiar name to some who follow Nebraska recruiting closely. At the end of the class of 2017, then defensive backs coach Donte Williams recruited Wallace for the Huskers. The defender from Nevada ultimately chose Arizona then left after the coaching change and wound up at Independence Community College this season. He had a couple of interceptions this season. He doesn’t have many offers but I could see this recruitment moving quickly toward Nebraska.
