The Nebraska Cornhuskers are in the midst of spring practice in preparation for the 2016 season, but that doesn't mean head coach Mike Riley & Co. have taken a step back on the recruiting trail. Here are all the latest news and rumors surrounding Nebraska recruiting:
3-star QB target high on Nebraska
Three-star quarterback Jack Coan (Sayville, NY) took his first visit to Nebraska on Thursday, and he came away very impressed with the program.
“I definitely really liked Nebraska,” he said, via 247sports. “I really enjoyed meeting the whole staff and both coach Mike Riley and coach Danny Langsdorf are great people. They are really generally nice people. The facilities at Nebraska are really nice and I thought the campus was beautiful. I really enjoyed it.
“There was a lot of energy at practice and all the players were working hard, competing hard. The practice went well. I definitely liked it. I feel like I can see myself sitting in that system. They run a pro-style offense and I think I’d fit into it pretty well."
Coan said he doesn't have a timeline for his decision and doesn't have any other visits plans at this time, but the Huskes are right at the top of his list.
“They were telling me how I am a good fit for their system,” he said. “They wanted to make sure I enjoyed the visit. They’re going to stay in contact with me. I really haven’t compared any of the colleges to the others yet. I feel like each college offers something different. Nebraska though, I really, really liked. I really enjoyed the visit.
Coan is ranked as the No. 18 quarterback and No. 397 overall prospect in the country.
4-star LB target leaves Huskers off spring visit list
Four-star linebacker Avery Roberts (Wilmington, DE) has listed Penn State and Nebraska has his top two schools throughout his recruiting process, but it appears that Nebraska may have taken a step back. He told 247sports that he will attend Penn State's spring game on April 16 instead of Nebraska's. He will also attend Clemson's spring game on April 9.
Missouri ATH to commit to Nebraska when offered
Talented athlete Keiondre Hall (Battle, MO) visited Nebraska for junior day last weekend with his high school teammate Jaevon McQuitty, a recent Huskers commit, and said the school definitely left an impression on him.
“I liked the fact that their graduation rate was 85 percent, and all the academic support,” Hall said. “All their facilities were really nice. I liked the coaching staff.”
Hall said he plans to return to Lincoln for Nebraska's spring game, and that he was so enthralled with the school that he plans to commit as soon as the Huskers offer him a scholarship.Back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers Newsfeed
