Nebraska’s been on commit watch for a few weeks now.
Ever since the commitment of 3-star WR Cameron Brown in early May, there have been murmurs that there could be a flurry of commitments on the horizon.
Nebraska’s 2018 class is sitting at 10 commitments. That leaves at least five spots in the class, per Mike Riley’s prediction of a 15-player class.
So here is our list of five recruits we think could be next to commit.
Mario Goodrich is a 4-star athlete from Lee’s Summit, Mo. The wide receiver, cornerback and kick returner is the No. 12 athlete in the 2018 class and No. 6 player from Missouri.
Goodrich has long been thought of as Nebraska’s next commit, but there are reports that he wants to visit a few schools before committing anywhere. Goodrich visited Nebraska for the spring game and also visited last November.
He holds 14 offers, including from Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State.
It’s always a good sign when just the sight of your school makes someone de-commit from another school. Chris Bleich is a 3-star offensive tackle from Plymouth, Pa.
He’s the No. 33 offensive tackle in the 2018 class and No. 13 player from Pennsylvania.
Bleich is a former Penn State commit, but he de-committed a few days after visiting Nebraska for the spring game on April 15. He holds 16 offers, most recently from UCLA.
Bleich told Land of 10 last week that he intends to announce his commitment in mid-June. If Nebraska doesn’t get a commitment in the month of May, Bleich could be next to pull the trigger.
Like Goodrich, it’s long been believed that 4-star WR Joshua Moore is Nebraska’s to lose.
Moore is the No. 13 wide receiver in the 2018 class and No. 16 player in the state of Florida.
Moore is finishing up school at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., before heading back to Yoakum, Texas, where he’ll rejoin his brother, 4-star safety Jordan Moore.
The biggest thing keeping Moore from choosing Nebraska was the lack of a track scholarship, which Nebraska offered last week. That should boost Nebraska’s chances.
Joshua Moore holds 53 offers from seemingly every Power Five school. He unofficially visited Nebraska on April 15. The 247Sports Crystal Ball still favors Nebraska.
Jordan Moore’s recruitment is a little tricky.
The 4-star safety is committed to Texas A&M, and has been since December 2016. But his 247Sports Crystal Ball has Nebraska in the lead.
There’s reason to believe the Moore brothers will be a package deal. If so, that would lead to Jordan heading to Nebraska with Joshua.
Jordan holds 34 offers, including recent offers from TCU and Alabama.
This is more of a long shot. Ronnie Perkins is the No. 7 weak-side defensive end in the 2018 class and the No. 4 player in the state of Missouri.
He holds 31 offers, including from Oklahoma, LSU, Michigan and Missouri.
Rumors swirled two weeks ago that Perkins’ commitment was coming soon, but nothing happened. The biggest hurdle for Nebraska in this recruiting battle will be Oklahoma. That’s where Perkins’ 247Sports Crystal Ball projects he’ll end up.
The Sooners have visited Perkins twice this spring.
