The Nebraska recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Monday through Friday nights when we recap recruiting news and offer analysis and context.
A week in offers
A quick rundown of which prospects the Huskers offered scholarships to this week:
The most recent offer went to Doug Nester, a 4-star offensive tackle, per the 247Sports composite. Nester (Huntington, W.Va.) is a 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle in the 2019 class who holds 14 scholarship offers, including from Tennessee, West Virginia, Florida, Ohio State and Michigan State.
Nester unofficially visited Ohio State on April 15.
Dollars is a 2019 running back from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.
Dollars does not have a star rating. His other offers include Oregon, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA and Utah. He previously named Oregon as his leader.
Nebraska’s offer is the second for Green-Warren, a 2020 cornerback from Santa Ana, Calif. Nevada was his first. He doesn’t have a star rating. Green-Warren visited Houston in January.
2019 Corona, Calif., receiver Huffman-Dixon does not have a star rating but holds six offers, from Arizona State, Colorado, Georgia, Oregon and UCLA along with Nebraska.
Markham is a 2019 wide receiver with five other offers: Arizona, Colorado, Rutgers, UCLA and Washington State
Kejuan Markham is a 2019 safety. Both he and his brother Keon attend Long Beach Poly High and neither has a 247Sports star rating.
Offers by the numbers
Here’s how Nebraska’s total 2018 offers break down by position:
|2018 offers||2018 commits|
|Weakside defensive end||10||1|
|Strongside defensive end||12|
What’s worth noting: Nebraska has not seen the fruits of the offers from safety or offensive tackle quite yet. Though it has just one commit from 18 cornerback offers, Nebraska does have one athlete (Mario Goodrich) who will play corner and one receiver (Chase Williams) who was recruited to play corner.
If this chart shows us anything, it’s where priorities lie. And with just a few spots remaining in the 2018 class, expect the Huskers to focus on offensive tackle, safety and a defensive lineman.
