Nebraska’s Commitment Windfall Continues With 3-Star Defensive Back Evan Taylor

June 19, 2023

A pre-camp prospect joins the Huskers’ football camp recruiting momentum.

Evan Taylor, a 3-star athlete from Cuthbertson High in Waxhaw, North Carolina, became the latest member of Nebraska’s 2024 recruiting class on Monday. Taylor, 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, is an athlete who will likely play in the secondary at Nebraska. Huskers secondary coach Evan Cooper reached out to Taylor with an offer back in May.

Taylor is a speedy prospect with nearly a dozen Division I offers. He runs a 4.53 40 and the shuttle in 4.33. He had 38 catches for 528 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games on offense last season. In his last two seasons at defensive back he has 31 tackles and five interceptions.

Waxhaw’s 3-star prospect chose Nebraska over North Carolina, Rutgers and East Carolina. He visited North Carolina twice at the end of last season then took official visits to Rutgers and East Carolina earlier this month. His commitment follows his official visit to Lincoln, which he made a week ago.

Taylor is the No. 13 commitment in Nebraska’s 2024 recruiting class. He’s the sixth to commit since camp season began. Taylor is the third defensive back to commit in that group and potentially fifth defensive back commit in the Huskers’ class. Mario Buford, a 4-star recruit from Desoto, Texas, committed to Nebraska earlier this month while Roger Gradney, a 4-star athlete who was the first member of the 2024 class, is linked to play in Nebraska’s secondary.
