The Nebraska recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Monday through Friday nights when we recap recruiting news and offer analysis and context.
We’re nearing the end of the evaluation period and Nebraska is picking up steam with offers.
The Huskers offered four prospects in the past 12 hours. The most recent one went to Doug Nester, a 4-star offensive tackle, per the 247Sports composite, from Huntington, W.Va.

Nester 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.
Nebraska also offered Sean Dollars, a 2019 running back from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.

Dollars does not have a star rating. He has six other offers, from Oregon, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA and Utah. He previously named Oregon as his leader.
Nebraska also offered Darion Green-Warren, a 2020 cornerback from Santa Ana, Calif.

Nebraska is his second offer. Nevada was his first. He doesn’t have a star rating. Green-Warren visited Houston in January.
And finally, the Huskers offered 2019 Corona, Calif., receiver Braedin Huffman-Dixon.

Huffman-Dixon does not have a star rating but holds six offers, from Arizona State, Colorado, Georgia, Oregon and UCLA, along with Nebraska.
Sources have indicated this week that Nebraska seems to be making headway with 4-star wide receiver Kamryn Babb.
Babb is the No. 7 wide receiver in the 2018 class and attends Christian Brothers College High School (St. Louis), where 3-star WR Cameron Brown and Nebraska commit also attends.
Nebraska has been after Babb for some time. The Huskers were the first school to offer the 6-foot-1, 189-pound receiver.
He’s racked up 30 offers, including from Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Alabama. The Huskers seem to be leaning toward adding at least two more receivers to their 2018 class.
Nebraska coach Mike Riley got some valuable face time on FaceTime with 4-star athlete Talanoa Hufanga on Thursday.
Corvallis' finest got to FaceTime with @Coach_Riley this morning! Hope he joins us in LNK! ☠️🏴☠️

Hufanga is one of Nebraska’s top targets in the 2018 class.
Hufanga, from Corvallis, Ore., is the No. 2 athlete in the 2018 class and No. 1 player from Oregon. He has offers from 21 schools, including Alabama, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State and BYU.
Linebackers coach Trent Bray was also in the area on Thursday.
Another great visit in Corvallis!

Hufanga was in Lincoln for the spring game on April 15. The next weekend, he visited Alabama for the Crimson Tide spring game.
Nebraska is recruiting Hufanga as a safety, though he can fill a lot of different roles for the Blackshirts.
