The biggest spring-game weekend of the Mike Riley era, from a recruiting standpoint at least, got off to a big start with the verbal commitment of 4-star cornerback Brendan Radley-Hiles.
Radley-Hiles played at Calabasas (California) High School last season with current Huskers wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. and quarterback Tristan Gebbia. He will play his senior season at prep powerhouse IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
Long considered a key part of the Huskers’ 2018 class, Nebraska devoted major resources to the recruitment of Radley-Hiles, and, much like Johnson in 2017, he has the potential to be a connector to other recruits in the current class.
