The Nebraska recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Monday through Friday nights when we recap recruiting news and offer analysis and context.
Who Nebraska offered this week
A quick recap of Nebraska offers this week:
Sione Angilau Jr.
The Huskers’ most recent offer went out to Sione Angilau Jr. He’s a 3-star 2018 offensive tackle from Salt Lake City, Utah. He’s the No. 14 rated offensive tackle in the class, according to 247sports, and the No. 2 player out of the state of Utah.
Angilau Jr. holds 20 offers including from Alabama, Arizona State, Washington, Wisconsin and Texas.
Nebraska offered 2019 offensive guard Caedan Wallace on Thursday. Wallace is the No. 7 guard in the 2019 class and a 4-star prospect from Princeton, N.J.
He holds 10 total offers, including from Penn State, Minnesota, Maryland and Oklahoma. He unofficially visited Penn State on April 22, March 25 and Feb. 25.
Four-star prospect Kevin Harris is the No. 9 outside linebacker and No. 13 player in Georgia for 2019, per the 247Sports solo rankings. From Loganville (Ga.), Harris holds 12 total offers, including from Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan and Oklahoma. He’s the fourth linebacker in the 2019 class to receive an offer from Nebraska linebackers coach Trent Bray.
247Sports rates Jonah Tauanu’u from Harbor City (Calif.) as the No. 8 offensive tackle and the No. 76 player in the 2019 class.
The 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle holds five other offers: USC, LSU, Michigan, Boston College and Washington State. He’s the seventh offensive tackle in the 2019 class to receive a Nebraska offer. That position will clearly be a priority for the coaching staff in the 2019 class.
Monday is the No. 11 athlete in the 2018 class and No. 23 player from Georgia. He attends Carver High School in Atlanta. He has 17 offers, including from Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Alabama. He unofficially visited Florida State on April 8 and Feb. 18.
Dobbs is the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2018 class. He’s also rated the No. 9 player, per 247Sports, and the No. 1 player in Michigan. He attends Belleville High School. Dobbs has 25 total offers, including from Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn and Arkansas.
Nebraska’s highest-rated 2018 commit showed off during a spring game on Thursday.
Below is a 97-yard kick return from 4-star cornerback Brendan Radley-Hiles in IMG Academy’s spring game against East Ridge High School.

You can kind of see why Nebraska coach Mike Riley is so excited about this kid, right?
Nebraska will host 3-star defensive end David Alston in Lincoln this weekend. The visit was first reported by Huskers Illustrated.
Alston is the No. 45 strongside defensive end in the 2018 class and the No. 4 player from Minnesota.
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Alston holds 16 total offers, including from Harvard, Dartmouth, Iowa State, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Alston has already unofficially visited Big Ten West foes Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin this spring.
Nebraska offensive coordinator will be in Houston this weekend to yet again see 4-star 2019 QB Grant Gunnell.
Being up since 3:30am wont stop me from seeing the ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ gunslinger in Houston! Lets make him a Husker! #GBR 🌽
— Danny Langsdorf (@CoachLangsdorf) May 19, 2017
This is at least the fourth time in the past six months Langsdorf has been in Houston to see Gunnell.
Nebraska is likely done with its recruitment of 2018 quarterbacks, which means Langsdorf will likely focus even more on getting Gunnell, who is the No. 2 pro-style passer in the 2019 class.
