LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska coaches were all over the Eastern Seaboard this week to evaluate prospects in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 recruiting classes.
While checking in with recruits high on their lists, Nebraska coaches also handed out a few scholarship offers to some East Coast prospects.
Here’s a list of who was offered this week:
The most recent Nebraska offer went out to 4-star Eric Gray.

Mayfield, from Grand Rapids (Mich.) Catholic Central, is the No. 34 offensive tackle in the nation and No. 8 player in Michigan in the 2018 class.

A former Minnesota commit, Mayfield reopened his recruitment on March 26.
He holds 14 offers, including from Michigan, Michigan State, Arizona and a handful of other Big Ten schools. He recently made unofficial visits to Notre Dame, Michigan and Iowa.
What to watch for this weekend:
Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf is in Arizona this weekend. He’ll see 4-star pro-style quarterback Tyler Shough throw.
— Danny Langsdorf (@CoachLangsdorf) May 5, 2017
Curious to see if Langsdorf offers the No. 20 pro-style passer after this weekend. Langsdorf has been all over the country during this evaluation period but has yet to offer anyone. Nebraska’s QB offers in the 2018 class are still at just 12, with just three of those quarterbacks currently uncommitted.
Nebraska’s next offer at QB will likely be the Huskers new top QB target. If that offer ever goes out at all.
