Judge Culpepper commits … to Big Ten foe
Nebraska missed on one of its top defensive end targets on Friday.
— Judge Culpepper (@JudgeCulpepper) July 14, 2017
Culpepper is the No. 18 strongside defensive end in the 2018 class. He holds 34 offers. His 247sports Crystal Ball was leaning heavily toward Penn State. He made an unofficial visit to Penn State on April 8, visited Nebraska on April 15 for the spring game, then visited Penn State again on June 12.
The 6-foot-5, 256-pound tackle was near the top of Nebraska defensive line coach John Parrella’s list of targets.
The Huskers have 10 offers out to weakside defensive ends and 11 offers to strongside defensive ends in the 2018 class.
Among those Nebraska will likely turn the heat up on include Micah Parsons (5 stars), Ronnie Perkins (4 stars), and Jalen Redmond and Daniel Carson (3 stars each).
Offer for Max Duggan
2019 quarterback target Max Duggan received an offer from former Nebraska QB and current UCF head coach Scott Frost on Friday.

Duggan, from Council Bluffs, Iowa, is the No. 7 pro-style passer in the 2019 class. The 6-2, 175-pound Duggan now has 10 offers: UCF, Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas State, Marshall, North Carolina, Penn State and South Dakota State.
Duggan became a main target for Nebraska after 4-star 2019 QB Grant Gunnell committed to Texas A&M in June. Since then, Duggan has visited Nebraska for the Friday Night Lights camp and the Huskers have turned up the heat on him.
