Recruiting Recap: Building Momentum Ahead of Spring Game

March 17, 2017

Bryan Addison Confirms Visit Plans

The secondary will be a major part of Nebraska’s 2018 recruiting class and the Huskers are expected to take at least four defensive backs this cycle. One of the top defensive backs currently on Nebraska’s board is Bryan Addison, who cornerbacks coach Donte Williams has been recruiting since his time at Arizona. Williams hard work has started to pay off, as the talented safety tweeted that he would be in Lincoln for the spring game.

Addison, a Gardena, California, native, currently holds 11 FBS offers including tenders from USC and UCLA. As a junior, Addison tallied 53 tackles and 3 interceptions while helping Junipero Serra go 7-4 in 2016.

Nebraska Joins Chase for Asa Martin

Davis is on the hunt for at least one running back in the 2018 class, which explains his recent offer to Asa Martin. Martin, a Decatur, Alabama, native, currently holds 20 FBS offers, with Auburn, Ole Miss and Oklahoma appearing to be his early leaders.

Martin spent his junior season at IMG Academy, where he rushed for 372 yards and four touchdowns. He also averaged 7.6 yards per carry for the Ascenders.

Huskers Host Tyler Shough, but No Offer… Yet

The Huskers hosted an intriguing sleeper prospect this week when Chandler, Arizona, prospect Tyler Shough took in Lincoln on Tuesday. Shough, a 6-5, 195-pound quarterback, took in Lincoln after a solid performance at The Opening in Los Angeles, California. Shough has been on offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf’s radar for some time now, having watched Shough throw in person last summer. As a junior, Shough threw for 2,079 yards and 27 touchdowns while leading Hamilton to a 7-5 record in 2016.

Shough is a bit of an under the radar prospect, as he currently holds just six offers (three of which come from the Ivy League). However, watch for Shough’s offer list to increase rapidly this summer. He will be a highly sought after quarterback prospect after some of the higher-rated quarterbacks shut down their process.

While Nebraska hosted Shough, they did not offer him before he left Lincoln. This could be taken as a sign that Nebraska feels good about its chances with the top quarterback on the board, Colson Yankoff.

Huskers Pass First Cut for Joshua Moore

Nebraska made it through the first cut for one of the most intriguing wide receiver prospects in the nation this week when Joshua Moore listed the Huskers in his final 10 on Wednesday. Moore originally had 53 offers but narrowed his list to include Nebraska with recruiting powerhouses like Alabama, Texas and Florida State.

Snagging Moore will be a monumental task for wide receivers coach Keith Williams but he may have an ace up his sleeve with Brendan Radley-Hiles. Radley-Hiles has been considered a Husker lean for a couple months now and he plans to be in Lincoln for the spring game. He has also been working to bring several of his IMG teammates along with him, which could lead to a stacked spring game.

Who’s Next?

Keep an eye on Yankoff. His commitment could come sooner rather than later.
