Where do the Huskers Sit with 2019 4-Star CB Chris Steele?

August 4, 2017

Earlier this week, 2019 4-star cornerback Chris Steele from Bellflower, California, decommitted from UCLA. Normally that wouldn’t raise too many eyebrows in Lincoln, but after he backed off the pledge there was social media chatter that he was interested in Nebraska.

I was able to exchange some messages with Steele (6-1, 175) to gauge his interest in Nebraska.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Donte Williams’ name came up.

“He relates to me more than some of the other coaches," Steele said. "He's one of the younger coaches so when he tells me stuff I can really relate to it.”

One of Nebraska’s best recruiting tools is getting recruits to experience a game day at Memorial Stadium. Can Husker fans expect to see him in Lincoln?

“Definitely," Steele said. "My dad and Coach Donte are going to set something up.”

Steele also told me that the other schools he’s considering besides Nebraska are USC, LSU, Alabama, Stanford, Notre Dame and Michigan.

Things seem pretty positive for Nebraska with Steele at this point. He will be one of the top defensive backs on the west coast in 2019. There’s a long way to go here but once again Williams is doing good work on the recruiting trail.
