The Nebraska Cornhuskers and head coach Mike Riley have already assembled a solid crop of recruits for the Class of 2016 cycle, but there are still a few impact names on the Huskers' target list whose college decisions will make the difference between a passable recruiting cycle and a game-changing one. Here's our list of 3 Recruits Nebraska Football Must Land To Make The 2016 Class A Success.
S Isaiah Simmons -- Olathe (KS) Olathe North
A four-star standout with five-star potential, Simmons' 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame makes him a potential weapon at both safety and wide receiver -- especially with his seamless stride and top-notch athleticism. The in-state Kansas Jayhawks have long been considered a favorite, but Nebraska is right there. Keep an eye on Clemson and Michigan, however. Both are lurking as Signing Day approaches.
WR Desmond Fitzpatrick -- Waterford (MI) Waterford Mott
A four-star wideout who uses every inch of 6-2, 189-pound frame to box out cornerbacks while turning on the jets after the catch, Fitzpatrick decommitted from Louisville in November prior to his visit to Lincoln -- a place where he found an "in game atmosphere" unlike any other and an experience he simply called "crazy." Fitzpatrick is a heavy Nebraska lean, but Indiana, Louisville and Mississippi State remain in the mix.
OT Matt Farniok -- Sioux Falls (SD) Washington
The four-star O-lineman had a fantastic US Army All-American Bowl, starting at right guard for the entire game for the East team and routinely standing up top-tier defensive lineman throughout the contest. The South Dakotan standout is considered to be a heavy Nebraska lean, with Iowa and Michigan State trailing. He's the type of signing the Huskers can build an offensive line around, so keep an eye out.Back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers Newsfeed
