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.
Saturday’s game against Purdue featured a number of intriguing targets for both the 2019 class and the 2020 class. One of Nebraska’s top 2020 targets was in town, 4-star (HV Rating: 90.3) defensive tackle Nash Hutmacher. This is the second time Hutmacher made it to Lincoln this season, the first being for the Colorado game.
I exchanged some texts with the Chamberlain, South Dakota, native to see how his visit went. He told me that the visit was pretty good and that talking with the Nebraska coaching staff was also good. He is continuing to build relationships with them. Hutmacher also said that it was good to get another chance to talk with the other commits in attendance for the game.
Hutmacher will visit Wisconsin next weekend who also happened to play Nebraska, allowing him to see the Huskers play for the third time in person.

Also in Lincoln this weekend was Nebraska defensive back commit Quinton Newsome. He was one of three official visitors, all of which hailed from the state of Georgia. I exchanged some messages with Newsome who says he loved his official visit and that it was great.
“Meeting the other commits was exciting because those are my future teammates and I got to see what they were like," Newsome said.
He also shared that he had a good time with both Jeremy James and Aaron Beasley, who were both on official visits in Lincoln. He believes that both “enjoyed their visits and were shocked about how fun it was.”
He has a strong relationship with both coach Scott Frost and defensive backs coach Travis Fisher. The most memorable thing for him was hanging out with Mo Barry and the team after the game.
>> Last Friday before Huskers wide receiver commit Jamie Nance came out to Lincoln for an unofficial visit, he played a football game. He had a nice 53-yard touchdown catch that his dad posted on Twitter.
>> As always, a lot of recruits that visited Lincoln for the game against Purdue posted about their experience on Twitter.
