The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Sunday through Thursday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
Nebraska wide receivers coach Keith Williams was busy this week.
Just on Thursday, four wide receivers announced offers from Nebraska, including Jackson Gleeson, a 3-star prospect from Mansfield, Texas.
Gleeson told Land of 10 Thursday he received his offer from Williams after direct messaging with the coach for a few days on Twitter.
“We were just talking about different stuff about the offense they run, guys he’s put in the NFL and who he trains in summer and all that,” Gleeson said.
The next day Williams called and offered Gleeson.

Gleeson, the No. 111 receiver in the 2018 class, per 247Sports composite, has six other offers, most recently from Baylor, North Texas, Louisiana Tech and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Williams wants Gleeson to check out Lincoln, but that visit might have to wait a bit. Gleeson is going to focus on his track season. He runs the 100 and 200 meters.
“I’m super busy with track right now and track is very important to me. So I’m trying to do well in that as well as football,” Gleeson said. “After track season he’d like me to get up to Lincoln.”
Miles Battle, another wide receiver from Texas, received an offer this week.
