Now that spring football is back in full swing, the Huskers are back hosting prospects on unofficial visits. In fact, there was a large group of prospects in Lincoln on Wednesday from Tyrone Carter Elite Training Camps—operated by former Minnesota and NFL star Tyrone Carter—which is based in the Minneapolis area. The headliner of that group was perhaps 4-star linebacker Kaden Johnson from Minnehaha Academy in Mineapolis.
Muhsin Muhammad, a In addition, 4-star wide receiver, was also at practice and received a lot of attention from offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Troy Walters. This year, Nebraska has double-digit official visits left to use for 2020 prospects. Coach Scott Frost was asked about the plan for official visits on Wednesday during his media availability.
“Yeah, we have a bunch of official visits we are going to be able to use,” he said. “I think it’s over 10 official visits that we have left. Last year, we were out of them so we didn’t have the opportunity to bring very many kids in during the spring. We are going to try to use those official visits if we need to for kids that will commit during the summer. If we have a shot at them, we want to get them here. Any kid that is making a decision later on, I’d rather get them here for a gameday and let them experience what that’s all about.
“We will be selective with that and try to get the right guys on campus this spring.”
Frost would like to host prospects during the spring game, if possible. He recognizes that every kid’s schedule is different based on what sports they are in, when they are taking the ACT or SAT and other factors. There are a couple of prospects that Frost may be alluding to who are looking to make summer announcements.
Nash Hutmacher, the 4-star defensive tackle prospect who already has an official visit date set for next month, is one. Turner Corcoran, the 4-star offensive tackle from Kansas, is another to watch. They aren’t the only ones but they are two of the top overall targets on the board for the Huskers.
