Davis Working to Complete 2017 Running Backs Class

December 8, 2016

Running backs coach Reggie Davis has earned a reputation for finding and stealing talented running back prospects late in the recruiting cycle, as he swiped Devine Ozigbo from Iowa State and Tre Bryant from Kansas State in the last two classes. Davis looks like he is up to his old tricks once again in 2017, as he is zeroing in on Chula Vista, California, running back C.J. Verdell.

Verdell, a 5-9, 190-pound prospect, has been committed to Oregon since May. However, the firing of Mark Helfrich has given Nebraska an opening to steal the talented back away.
