New Pair of Confirmed Visitors For Wisconsin Game

November 09, 2019

Things are heating up for Nebraska’s visit list for the matchup with Wisconsin next weekend. 

This week the Huskers (and many other schools) have been evaluating JUCO players as their seasons are finishing up around the country. One of the players that picked up an offer from the Huskers this week was Independence Community College linebacker Jamoi Hodge.

Hodge told Hail Varsity late Friday night that he will be taking an official visit to Lincoln for the Wisconsin game. Even though the Huskers are recruiting Hodge (6-2, 225) to play outside linebacker, the coach he has been in contact with the most so far is inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud. Hodge is a December graduate and would have four years to complete three seasons at his college of choice. 

When asked what he is looking forward to most on the trip, a couple of popular responses popped up. 

“The fans. I heard they have one of the best fan bases in college football,” Hodge explained. “And the facilities.” 

We also have a confirmed unofficial visitor for the game. Nebraska has been quite active trying to recruit Iowa since Coach Scott Frost and his staff’s arrived in Lincoln. One of the top Iowa natives on the Huskers’ board for 2021 is Lewis Central (Council Bluffs) tight end Thomas Fidone. Frost was by his school on Thursday to check in on the 6-foot-5, 215-pound tight end. 

Fidone told Hail Varsity that he will be back in Lincoln for the game against Wisconsin. 

The matchup with the Badgers figures to be a busy one for recruiting. Hail Varsity has already confirmed five official visitors with a chance more could be added during the week. 

  • DE DeShawn Lynch
  • WR Lavon Bunkley-Shelton
  • DB Darion Green-Warren
  • OL Zane Herring (FSU commit)
  • JUCO LB Jamoi Hodge
