National Signing Day will be here before we know it, which means commitments could happen at any moment now for Nebraska. While there’s always a chance that a prospect could commit when least expected, we do have a pretty good idea of when announcements will happen. To help make it easy, we’ve broken down when each recruit is expected to announce, along with whom they are still considering.
As for those that haven’t directly confirmed their commitment date, we’ve also listed them with our best guess on when they’ll announce.
Wednesday, Jan 25

Wide receiver target Jamire Calvin has had quite the journey so far. He was expected to commit to Nebraska and then didn’t, instead selecting Oregon State at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He later decommitted and has since been vague about when and where he’ll commit.
He’s expected to make his final decision on National Signing Day, but recent tweets make it seem like he could pull the trigger at any moment.
God gives us all a purpose in life, mine is to make a better life for my family through football. 🏴

Bryan Thompson was committed to Boise State but decommitted earlier in January. As a result, he’s compiled quite a list of options. He’s expected to announce on National Signing Day but hasn’t directly confirmed it.
Decision: Boise State, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, Utah, Washington State
Jeremiah Hawkins | ATH | Buena Park, California
While Nebraska is still in the mix for Jeremiah Hawkins, he has not decommitted from Cal. With that in mind, it’s believed that if he were to flip, it will happen on National Signing Day.
Decision: Cal, Nebraska
Tight Kurt Rafdal was originally committed to Indiana but decommitted in early January. He’s now down to three programs – including Nebraska – and is expected (but not confirmed) to make his final decision on National Signing Day.
Decision: Iowa, LSU, Nebraska
