Nebraska Recruiting: Who Just Missed the April Greg’s Guys Cut?

April 12, 2022

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 latest edition of the Greg’s Guy’s list came out earlier today. The Huskers are off to a strong start with the 2023 class, which is now up to five players. With that said, there was a big shakeup on the April big board. Things are coming into focus more now. The Husker have had a spring full of visits capped off by the Red-White Spring Game.

This month’s list saw big changes because new players have shot up the board. There were not many commitments with Husker targets last month. It does seem like there was a reshuffling of the team’s priorities as the new staff gets settled in. The Huskers have a clear vision of what they want as senior director of player personnel and recruiting Vince Guinta recently explained.

“What we want to do is we want to bring great character kids here,” Guinta said. “We want to bring tough competitive kids here. We want to bring kids that can succeed here in Nebraska and are great fits for our culture. That being said, we want talented kids that can help us compete at the highest level.”

We are entering a bit of down time for the staff before official visits and camp season ramp up. There are several players who just missed making the April list. Let’s take a look at three players that just missed the cut.

Wide Receiver Jaidyn Doss (Peculiar, Missouri)

Doss (6-1, 200) is an emerging prospect in the Midwest. It’s easy to see why when you watch his film. He’s a versatile receiver that can do it all and is a willing blocker. Doss has also done well on the 7-on-7 and camp circuit this spring. He holds double-digit scholarship offers including Nebraska, Michigan and Iowa State. Oregon has also entered the mix for him and offered him during a visit in April. The wideout did visit Lincoln in March and enjoyed the trip.

Running Back Sergio Snider (Arlington, Texas)

The Huskers running back board has been fluid since coach Bryan Applewhite took over. A Texas native that he’s got his eye on is Snider (5-10, 185) out of Martin High School. He currently has offers from 20 programs. That includes Arizona State, Baylor, Boise State, Texas Tech, Washington and Cincinnati. Applewhite recruited him at TCU and is doing the same at Nebraska. Snider took a visit to Lincoln for the spring game. He rushed for 643 yards with 11 touchdowns and added 29 receptions for 325 yards and 3 more scores as a junior.

Offensive Lineman Amir Herring (West Bloomfield, Michigan)

The Huskers already have a pair of in-state offensive linemen on the commitment list. The team is searching for at least one more. Herring (6-3, 281) is one of the top players in the Big Ten footprint. He recently cut his list down to eight schools and the Huskers made the cut.

The good news for the Huskers is that Herring visited Lincoln twice this spring. He’s got a good feel for the program and Nebraska will hope to get an official this summer or fall.
