The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Tuesday through Friday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
Nebraska hasn’t had a big recruiting weekend in a while. And since Nebraska has not been great on the field the past two weeks, a good recruiting weekend might brighten some spirits inside Memorial Stadium.
The Huskers are hosting four recruits this weekend for the Minnesota game. Here’s a quick rundown of who they are.
Hafiz is a 3-star cornerback from Jacksonville, Fla. He’s the No. 82 corner in the 2017 class and No. 112 recruit from Florida.
He has 35 offers, including from Nebraska, Iowa State, Indiana, Iowa State and Minnesota. Hafiz was an Iowa State commit for three months but decommitted on Sept. 19.
Nebraska offered Hafiz in late September. This season he has officially visited Oregon State, Minnesota, Indiana and now Nebraska. He unofficially visited Miami on Nov. 5.

Nebraska needs a corner in the 2017 class and Hafiz would be a great fit. He’s 6-foot, 170 pounds and has great closing speed, plus reads routes very well. Here is his game tape.
Henderson is a 6-foot-1, 208-pound, 3-star linebacker from Covington, Ga. He’s currently committed to Tennessee.
Though he is a Tennessee commit, he’s still shopping around. He visited Michigan State on Oct. 29 and will be in Lincoln this weekend.
Henderson is the No. 31 safety in the 2017 class and has 24 offers, including from Nebraska, Tennessee, Michigan, Virginia, UCLA and Arkansas.
Henderson has been committed to Tennessee since June. Here are his highlights.
Curl is a 3-star safety from Muskogee, Okla., and the No. 49 athlete in the 2017 class. He’s 6-foot-2, 180 pounds and the No. 10 recruit from Oklahoma.
Curl decommitted from Texas Tech on Oct. 26 and was quickly given an offer to Nebraska on Nov. 7. He’ll visit just five days after his initial offer.
He has 19 other offers, including from TCU, Cincinnati and Houston.
