Several more offers extended
As we’ve done the last couple of days, let’s quickly summarize exactly who is on the receiving end of new offers from Nebraska’s new coaching staff. The bulk of these offers were extended either late Monday or Tuesday.
CB Teshaun Smith (3 stars, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.): Smith has tremendous size for a cornerback at 6-foot-3. He weighs 170 pounds. Smith is currently committed to North Carolina State and is the No. 86 cornerback in the country, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
WR D’Marcus Adams (4 stars, Daytona Beach, Fla.): A Florida State commit, Adams will be a U.S. Army All-American Bowl participant and demonstrates big-play ability. He runs a 4.46 40-yard dash and is the No. 45 wide receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports composite. Florida State hired Willie Taggart on Tuesday, so keep an eye on Adams. Nebraska has made a habit of offering Seminoles commits and de-commits.
*UPDATE: Adams has essentially reaffirmed his commitment to Florida Sate.
I️ am 110% committed to the Florida State University #Tribe18🍢

DE Jayson Oweh (4 stars, Blairstown, N.J.): Oweh, one of the top uncommitted defensive ends in the country, is in the middle of a three-way recruiting battle between Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan. Can Nebraska make enough noise to make it keep the all-Big Ten party alive? It’s probably too late for that, as his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions are about even between the Nittany Lions and the Buckeyes. According to the 247Sports composite, Oweh is the No. 5 strong-side defensive end in the country. He’ll be heading to the Under Armour All-American game, where he will announce his decision, on Jan. 4.
T Jerome Carvin (3 stars, Cordova, Tenn.): Carvin is being recruited heavily by Mississippi State, Tennessee, Florida and Auburn, but offensive line coach Greg Austin stopped by for an in-home visit Monday night. He is the No. 36 tackle in the country, according to the 247Sports composite, although he could slide to an interior line spot. Carvin spoke with Land of 10 about the visit and you can read about it here.
QB Terry Wilson (3 stars, Oklahoma City, Okla.): Wilson is planning on taking an official visit to Nebraska this weekend. He was once committed to the Huskers, then committed to Oregon when Scott Frost was the offensive coordinator. He then transferred to Garden City (Kan.) Community College. Now it looks like everything is lining up for a Frost-Wilson reunion. Wilson is the No. 2 JUCO dual-threat quarterback in this cycle, according to the 247Sports composite. Wilson also was offered by Florida on Tuesday.
TE Messiah Swinson (3 stars, Glen Head, N.Y.): The staff offered Swinson while it was at UCF, and offered him at Nebraska on Monday. Swinson is the No. 38 tight end in the country, according to the 247Sports composite. His 6-8 height makes him an attractive prospect. He’s taken official visits to Arizona State and Missouri.
CB Jaycee Horn (4 stars, Alpharetta, Ga.): Another tall (6-0, 180 pounds) and rangy cornerback, Horn’s top suitors include South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama. Nebraska is trying to enter the mix for the 22nd-ranked cornerback in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite. Horn is the son of former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn.
RB Anthony Williams (3 stars, Hahnville, La.): Williams is an all-purpose back and he’s the type of backfield presence the new coaching staff clearly covets. He’s been committed to Kansas for the majority of the year, despite efforts from in-state LSU to flip him. Reports indicated he would visit Nebraska this weekend. He told Land of 10 he would actually be in Kansas, but still plans on checking out Nebraska. He is the No. 14 all-purpose back in the country, according to 247Sports composite.
WR Dominick Watt (3 stars, Hollywood, Fla.): Watt picked up an offer Tuesday afternoon. He has an official visit planned to Louisville this weekend. Cincinnati and Kentucky are also in the mix for the No. 59 receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports composite.
S Tyrese Ross (3 stars, Atlanta, Ga.): Sticking with defensive backs in Georgia, secondary coach Travis Fisher offered Ross on Tuesday. Ross is the No. 86 safety in the country, according to 247Sports. He de-committed from Mississippi State on Nov. 29. How does he feel about the offer?
“Great,” Ross told Land of 10. “I hear nothing but great things about Nebraska.”
Nebraska will have its work cut out to land Ross, who said it was possible for him to take an official visit to Lincoln over the next few weekends. He won’t be signing during the early period, so he will also have all of January to visit and make a decision if he wants to wait.
“Clemson, Florida, UCLA and Indiana are recruiting me the hardest,” Ross said. “Mississippi State is still in the mix.”
Roundup of in-home visits Tuesday
Ryan Held has been the busiest recruiter in this cycle among the new staff. The number of visits he’s already made is admirable. On Tuesday, he visited Arizona Western Community College to check on new targets Jaron Woodyard, a 3-star wideout, and Jahmir Johnson, a 3-star offensive lineman.

Held also visited with 4-star cornerback Brendan Radley-Hiles. He talked about the visit and a phone conversation with Scott Frost in his weekly diary. I gave my thoughts on the chances of Radley-Hiles re-committing in the latest mailbag piece.
Plenty of other coaches have been on the road recently. Greg Austin, one night after visiting Carvin, checked in with his teammate Jeremy Banks, a 3-star running back commit who is rather high on the Huskers.

Later Tuesday, the staff is expected to visit 4-star tight end commit Cameron Jurgens. The new staff has targeted a bunch of tight ends since moving to Nebraska, but the coaches clearly want to keep Jurgens on board. He recently took an official visit to LSU.
