The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Sunday through Thursday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
It isn’t a secret that Nebraska’s No. 1 priority in the 2018 class is 4-star cornerback Brendan Radley-Hiles.
Radley-Hiles, the No. 6 corner and No. 36 overall prospect in 2018, according to 247Sports, attends IMG Academy in Florida. But he is a former Calabasas High teammate of Keyshawn Johnson Jr. and Tristan Gebbia, and the cousin of Tyjon Lindsey — all three members of the Huskers’ 2017 class.
Radley-Hiles is also one of the best corners, which Nebraska needs in its 2018 class.
According to HuskerOnline’s Nate Clouse, Radley-Hiles will make a trip to Lincoln on April 15 for the spring game. The Huskers have been high on his list for nearly a year now, so that’s not entirely surprising. But it is good news nonetheless. As far as I’ve heard, this is the first big confirmation for attending the spring game.
Something also worth nothing about the corner: Players are starting to turn heat up on him.
Just on Wednesday, 2017 CB signee Elijah Blades tweeted at Radley-Hiles.

Radley-Hiles has 27 offers, with Nebraska high on his list, along with Florida, Notre Dame and USC. He recently was selected to compete in The Opening Finals this summer, the premier national camp for high school prospects. Here are some highlights from the recent regional competition in Orlando.
Keeping it in the family, Lindsey — a 4-star WR prospect — tweeted on Wednesday afternoon another highlight tape from his senior season at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High.
