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

June 07, 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 is out. The summer is great for clearing up who is atop Nebraska’s board and which prospects are seriously considering the program. Official visits and camp season are in full swing for a busy and important summer for the Huskers. This month’s list saw four new players make their debuts on the list.

The numbers will end up tight again this cycle for high school players. There are a lot of positions that Nebraska is in on several good players. The team will stay flexible on taking players at certain positions.

It was difficult to cut the list to 10 because the Huskers are in good position with many 2023 prospects. There is no way I could only give 10 prospects to watch. There are several players who just missed making the June list.

Let’s take a look at three players that just missed the cut.

Running Back Dontavius Braswell (Sandersville, Georgia)

The Huskers had Braswell (5-11, 200) in for an official visit the weekend of June 3. He’s another Georgia prospect that the Huskers have made great progress with this recruiting cycle. The program won’t look to take just any running back this cycle and Braswell’s talent stands out. Nebraska made a big impression on him this weekend but he has other visits lined up. He will check out Boston College and South Carolina this month. Braswell also is a standout in track and field. He was the 2A state champ in the 100m and 200m dash.

Athlete Dylan Edwards (Derby, Kansas)

Edwards (5-9, 165) is one of the better athletes in the region for the 2023 recruiting class. He took an official visit to Nebraska the weekend of May 20. The Huskers got the the chance to set the bar for Edwards even though everyone seems to be chasing Oklahoma for him. The Huskers are selling him on their ability to bring out the best in his game. His versatile skill-set was on full display as a junior when he was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Kansas. He totaled 3,214 all-purpose yards and 40 total touchdowns. Special teams coach Bill Busch is the lead recruiter for Edwards and will fight until the end.

Offensive Lineman Zalance Heard (Monroe, Louisiana)

The Huskers landed a player from Neville High School late in the recruiting process in the 2022 class. Could they strike again in 2023? Offensive lineman Zalance Heard (6-6, 300) is among the program’s top targets at the position this cycle. He plans to be in Lincoln for an official visit June 10 weekend. That will be his first official of the summer giving the Huskers a big opportunity. The Huskers will likely take at least one more offensive lineman this cycle.
