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.
Now that the dead period is lifted prospects from around the country are taking trips to check out colleges. They are doing their diligence on seeing which schools are right for them. Making the right college choice is a big decision. It requires several visits normally. That means that Nebraska won’t be the only place that prospects visit.
Let’s take a look at where some Nebraska targets took trips to over the weekend.
Week one official visitor Justin Williams is potentially Nebraska’s top running back target for the 2022 cycle. The Georgia native enjoyed his trip to Lincoln, leaving Nebraska with the Huskers as his leader. He checked out West Virginia for an official visit.

Kansas City tight end/wide receiver Quinton Conley had been a priority target for Nebraska. He attended the Red-White Spring Game on his own. He wanted to see how the Huskers have improved since the last time he was in Lincoln in 2019. He doesn’t have an official visit scheduled to Nebraska this month but he was at Kentucky over the weekend for an official visit.

Kansas defensive lineman Jalen Marshall took an official visit to Nebraska last weekend. The Huskers made an impression on the versatile defender. Late last week he took his official visit to Oklahoma State to see what Mike Gundy’s program had to offer.

Nebraska 2023 quarterback target Reese Mooney is checking out schools around the country. He was in Lincoln for the spring game too. Mooney and the Huskers have high interest in each other, and he enjoyed his trip. He’s hit several camps so far this month and his stock continues to rise. Last weekend he visited Vanderbilt and came away with an offer from the SEC program.
After a great camp and talk with @coachjoeylynch I’m pumped to be offered by @VandyFootball @bartonsimmons @BrettBeard92 @coach_norv @wyattdalton4 @Mansell247 @samspiegs @DeshawnBrownInc @AllenTrieu @denhamspringsFB @KenAnioJr pic.twitter.com/5YxLMq7oCW

Mumu Bin-Wahad is a defensive back out of Georgia. He is scheduled to take an official visit to Nebraska the weekend of June 25th. He was scheduled to go to Michigan for an official visit this past weekend but did not make that trip. He did end up taking an official visit to West Virginia the first week official visits were allowed.

It’s always interesting to see which visits that Husker targets do and don’t end up making. It’s been a busy month already that shows no signs of slowing down for the Huskers. There is going to be a lot of movement on Nebraska’s commit list in the coming weeks. In some cases, players need to get their visits in through this month.
