Final list of Nebraska’s official visitors this weekend
Following a weekend in which it hosted zero official visitors, Nebraska will host three this weekend.
One, Dominick Watt, committed to Nebraska last week without seeing the campus. He based his decision off his strong relationship with the coaching staff. Now he will have a chance to check out his home for the next few years and spend more time with the staff.
Watt is a 3-star receiver from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. He was traveling to campus Friday. Watt is a solid commit to the Huskers at this point, and what he sees this weekend should shore up that pledge.

Cam Taylor, a 3-star athlete from Montgomery, Ala., is making his official visit to Nebraska this weekend. Nebraska’s staff has visited with Taylor twice in the last two weeks, even driving through the snow. The Huskers like Taylor at cornerback. He might not receive the green light to commit until closer to National Signing Day, but that shouldn’t affect Taylor’s thought process too much, since he has an official visit to Missouri scheduled for next weekend.
Matthew Tago, meanwhile, will likely have the go-ahead to commit this weekend if things go well. Oregon State and Utah are still coming after the 3-star athlete, but they see him as a linebacker at the next level. Nebraska is willing to give him a shot at quarterback. Will it be enough to coax a commitment out of him by the time he leaves?
It depends how much Tago values a chance to play quarterback. He’ll certainly see that Tristan Gebbia, Patrick O’Brien and Adrian Martinez are already on campus. But the Huskers are giving him something that other schools aren’t — a shot. The Huskers have zeroed in on Tago as the final quarterback target in the class, with the desire of adding talent to the quarterbacks room to enable competition.
Even if quarterback doesn’t work out for Tago, it would make sense for him to transition to defense. It seems like a win-win for Tago. Of course, he has to like Nebraska more than Oregon State and Utah.

There was chatter Thursday that Maurice Washington was moving his official visit up to this weekend. The 3-star running back is finishing his high school career at Trinity Christian (Texas) Cedar Hill, but his mother lives in California. Logistically, it wouldn’t work out. Instead, Washington plans to visit next weekend, as originally scheduled. Arizona State has all the momentum with him, but Nebraska will have a chance to flip that if it gets him on campus.
Caleb Tannor update
Caleb Tannor, a 4-star outside linebacker, took his official visit to Nebraska the weekend of Jan. 12. The Lithonia (Ga.) Miller Grove standout was impressed by the visit, his coach Justin Larmond told Land of 10.
“It went very well,” Larmond said. “Frost and his staff are great.”
It’s no secret Larmond is high on Frost and the Huskers. The question now is whether Tannor is just as passionate. Javontae Jean-Baptiste, another 4-star outside linebacker, seems like more of a possibility (and slowly becoming a likelihood) for the Huskers for one of the remaining spots in the class.
According to Larmond, Tannor will take an official visit this weekend with Auburn and then check out Florida State from Feb. 2-4. As of now, Auburn is the favorite for the onetime Georgia commit. The Tigers will have a chance to bolster their position this weekend.
Cam’ron Jones set to announce decision Saturday, with Huskers in top 3
It’s possible that Nebraska could add another 4-star safety to its class this weekend.
Mansfield (Texas) safety Cam’ron Jones will announce his decision at 6:30 p.m. CT Saturday on a Dallas-area television station. The decision has come down to Baylor, Ole Miss and Nebraska.

Nebraska is the odds-on favorite here. Jones took two trips to the school in the span of a month and has a great connection with the coaching staff. Ole Miss’ postseason sanctions may dissuade him from there, and I’ve never gotten the sense Baylor was involved at all.
I’d be very surprised if Jones doesn’t don some Nebraska garb Saturday night.
