The offers have been flowing from Scott Frost’s new staff in its first few days at Nebraska. The coaches also have been out on the road meeting with Class of 2018 priority recruits, especially with the early signing period coming up in two weeks. Prospects in the 2019 recruiting class also have received some offers. Here’s a quick roundup of who they are, as well as some 2018 class members who recently received offers.
2018 WR Jacob Copeland (4 stars, Escambia, Fla.)
Another talented receiver gets an offer from the new Huskers staff. Jacob Copeland has been a big name on the recruiting scene throughout his high school career, and now Nebraska has entered the picture. He is the No. 8 wide receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports composite, and the No. 52 overall prospect. Alabama, Louisville and Florida are considered the favorites for Copeland, who was committed to the Gators until Nov. 25.

2018 WR Joshua Fleeks (4 stars, Cedar Hill, Texas)
Joshua Fleeks is committed to Baylor and the Huskers visited him two days after his official visit with the Bears. He has top-end speed with a 4.48 40-yard dash time and is the 47th-ranked wideout in the country, per the 247Sports composite. Fleeks can also play running back, and his 5-foot-11 frame may fit the mold of the all-purpose backs the new staff envisions utilizing at Nebraska.

2018 OT Grant Norton (3 stars, Camdenton, Mo.)
At 6-foot-8, 255 pounds, Grant Norton is a behemoth of a man already. However, he is committed to Minnesota and is expected to sign with the Gophers on Dec. 20. Nonetheless, the Huskers wanted to let the No. 104 tackle in the nation know that he could have a spot at Nebraska.
2019 CB James Williams (Hollywood, Fla.)
Chaminade-Madonna standout James Williams picked up his ninth offer from the Huskers on Wednesday. He is 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds and is not yet rated by the recruiting services. His other offers include Florida, Louisville and Ole Miss.

2019 ATH Te’Cory Couch (4 stars, Hollywood, Fla.)
Te’Cory Couch also attends Chaminade-Madonna and landed an offer Wednesday. He committed to Tennessee on June 13, but the Huskers clearly feel that commitment is tenuous. He is the No. 23 athlete in his class and the No. 252 overall prospect in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite. The staff offered Couch while at UCF.
