1. He’s fast.
He ran a 4.51 40-yard dash at Nike’s The Opening Regional in Chicago. You know that’s pretty accurate too because it’s laser-timed. His result tied him for fourth place in Chicago for the 40-yard dash. For reference, Nebraska wide receiver signee Tyjon Lindsey has clocked a 4.50 40-yard dash.
2. He hails from the same high school – Christian Brothers (Missouri) – as sophomore I-back Tre Bryant.
3. He could play defense if needed.
He has played safety at Christian Brothers, where he had four interceptions as a junior.
4. He is one of three wide receivers in the 2018 class so far.
He joins Manuel Allen and Eric Fuller (who is being recruited as a wide receiver by the Huskers). That means there might not be too many spots left for others potentially interested. Unless Fuller decommits (since he has yet to visit Lincoln), wide receivers coach Keith Williams will likely have room for only one or two more receivers in this class.
5. He is Nebraska’s first 2018 commitment from Missouri.
The Huskers will be looking to add his Christian Brothers teammate – wide receiver Kamryn Babb – especially if someone like Fuller were to decommit.
