It will be the second of at least eight camps for the Huskers in June, coming just a day after coaches attend Texas A&M’s camp on June 4. Nebraska is also scheduled for the Mercer 3-Stripe Elite Camp (Macon, Ga.) on June 7, Florida Atlantic’s Adidas Showcase on June 8, Lindenwood University camp (St. Charles, Mo.) on June 10 and the University of Redlands camp (California) on June 11.
The Huskers will also host a pair of camps next month, on June 16 and 23.
Friday Night Lights taking shape
The list of visitors for Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights camps in June is starting to formulate.
As we’ve reported previously, the plan is for the 11 current commits in the Huskers’ 2018 class to all be at the June 23 camp. While it remains to be seen whether all 11 actually make it, that does remain the plan. And regardless of the final number, it is shaping up to be a star-studded event.
More recently, 247Sports 4-star DE Marcus Hicks confirmed on Twitter he plans on being at Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights camp on June 16.
Camp schedule this summer:
6/10 sound mind sound body Detroit

The Wichita (Kan.) Northwest star is the No. 12 weakside defensive end in the 2019 class and No. 1 player from Kansas. He currently holds five offers: Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Also, 4-star 2018 athlete Talanoa Hufanga told Land of 10 on Tuesday that at this point he is not planning on attending either of the two camps. Hufanga visited Nebraska on April 15 for the spring game. The Corvallis (Ore.) Crescent Valley standout is the No. 2 athlete in the 2018 class and the top-ranked player from Oregon.
The camps are still half a month away, so things could change. But at this point in time, Hufanga said he doesn’t think he’ll at either.
This is important, considering he’s one of the top targets for Nebraska in this class and the coaching staff has maintained contact. Being recruited by the Huskers to play safety, Hufanga FaceTimed with Mike Riley last week and got an in-school visit from linebackers coach Trent Bray last week, as well.

Moore is a 4-star receiver who is at the top of Nebraska’s list. He holds 53 offers and is planning on announcing a commitment on June 18.
The Huskers remain the favorite to land the 6-foot-1, 170-pound Moore. Landing him would bump Nebraska’s 2018 class up to No. 5 in the national rankings, according to the 247sports calculator. The Huskers currently sit at No. 7.
Catching up with Brendan Radley-Hiles and Tyjon Lindsey
Brendan Radley-Hiles and Tyjon Lindsey are cousins, and both Nebraska commits.
Lindsey, the No. 7 receiver in the 2017 class, will report to Lincoln in just a few days to begin his Nebraska career. Radley-Hiles, the No. 10 corner in the 2018 class, still has his senior year at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy ahead of him before heading to Lincoln.
The two together last weekend, however, at the Steve Clarkson Quarterback Retreat in California. Greg Biggins from Scout.com caught up with the duo, and here is what they had to say about Nebraska, going up against each other and being family:
