The Nebraska recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Monday through Friday nights (and sometimes Sunday) when we recap recruiting news and offer analysis and context.
Texas A&M camp recap
Nebraska coaches checked out some of their top targets in Texas on Sunday.
Coach Mike Riley & Co. were joined by staffs from Mississippi State, Texas State, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana Tech, Kansas, Indiana, Tulsa, Arizona State and Texas-San Antonio at the Texas A&M camp.
Nebraska has shifted quite a bit of interest over to Texas in recent years, so Huskers coaches seemed pretty excited for the opportunity.
Excited to be in College Station. SAVAGE 💪🏽😤season starts now #MoneyTeam

Among the players in attendance were twins Joshua and Jordan Moore. Nebraska remains a favorite to land Joshua in two weeks when the 247Sports 4-star receiver announces his commitment. Jordan, a 4-star safety, is a Texas A&M commit.
At the camp, Joshua showed off a bit of why he’s earned 53 scholarship offers.

Other top Huskers targets from the state of Texas at the camp included 2019 4-star receiver and former Nebraska commit Marquez Beason. The camp runs until 11 p.m. ET Sunday, so we will have more coverage Monday.
Huskers coaches will stay in Texas, stopping at UTSA on Monday for the Adidas 3-Stripe Challenge. Also in attendance will be coaches from Tulsa, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, Kansas, Arizona State and Arkansas State.
Cameron Brown holds his own
Elsewhere, Cameron Brown, Nebraska’s 3-star wide receiver commit from St. Louis, is in Baltimore this weekend. He’s competing in the Under Armour IllSpeed Finals.

Brown committed to Nebraska on May 7 and is currently rated the No. 70 wide receiver in the 2018 class.
Brown ended up third in the competition, but seemed hopeful for another shot.

Tanner McKee and the Elite 11
Though Nebraska has backed off in recruiting 4-star QB Tanner McKee, it’s worth noting that the highest-rated uncommitted QB in the 2018 class is impressing in the Elite 11 competition this weekend.
McKee, the No. 4 pro-style passer in the 2018 class, is third in the Day 3 rankings.

McKee had the best day on Saturday, according to multiple reports. A devout member of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, McKee will sit out on Sunday.
McKee visited Nebraska in November and got an offer from offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf. He’s since been offered by Texas, Alabama and a few other SEC schools.
Langsdorf visited McKee’s school, Centennial High in Corona, Calif., during the evaluation period.
Offers, offers, offers
Amid the chaos of the camps, Nebraska extended a few offers during the weekend.
Most notably, Nebraska offered its first in-state recruit in the 2019 class.

Nick Henrich is a 6-foot-4, 200-pound inside linebacker from Omaha Burke High.
He has five other offers, from Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio and South Dakota State. He made an unofficial visit to Iowa State on May 7 and Minnesota on March 25.
Nebraska also offered Azeez Ojulari, a 3-star weakside defensive end from Marietta, Ga.
