The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Tuesday through Friday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
Robert Porcher IV, a 3-star DT from Orlando, Fla., will continue visits despite his commitment to Nebraska, he told 247sports.
Porcher was in Lincoln last weekend for the Oregon game and said both he and his family enjoyed the visit. He said his mom found out why he was so high on the program.
But the 6-foot-3, 245-pound lineman said he’s still going to take another visit. He’s “still 100 percent on Nebraska,” he said.
“If I take visits it’s just to make sure I go through the process,” he said. “I’m still all in for Nebraska.”
Porcher said he talked with defensive line coach John Parrella and Nebraska’s newest recruit, defensive tackle Deiontae Watts.
“When we were in the locker room after the game he was telling me how live it was and how he wants to be in a place like this next year,” Porcher IV told 247sports.
“I just told him to make that commitment official and he just started laughing. I started telling him about how coach Parrella is a good coach, how energetic he is and how I can’t wait to be there to be taught by him and just be around him. I don’t know if that had anything to do with his commitment.”
The next day, Watts committed.
Thomas Graham shopping around
Former USC commit and 2017 cornerback Thomas Graham had a great visit to Lincoln on Sept. 3 but is still visiting schools.
Graham’s father told Rivals.com that his most recent visit to Notre Dame was the best visit “hands down.”
“I already know all the little things about the school because I went up there already for the junior day. I know a lot of the important stuff,” Graham told Rivals.
“I just want to see the feel that I had when I first went there, I want to see if it’s still there. I want to see if I can enjoy myself there and see how it feels to be that far away from home. Even though my parents are there I’ll have time to get away from them and I want to see how that feels.”
Graham, from Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) High School, is planning visits to Arizona and Oregon.
“Oregon is a family mindset and I love it,” Graham said. “What I also want to see at Oregon is how comfortable I am there because I feel very comfortable there. I have a really good relationship with coach (John) Neal and coach (Mark) Helfrich so I just want to keep that relationship.”
2018 recruit eager to play for Nebraska already
Cameron Jurgens, from Beatrice, Neb., told Rivals.com he’s already pumped to play on Saturdays for Nebraska.
The 2018 commit said he likes the way Nebraska uses current tight end Cethan Carter.
“I like how the Nebraska offense moves the tight end around,” Jurgens told Rivals. “They play Cethan Carter as an H or lined up tight. They do multiple tight end sets. They use the tight end all over the field. It was great to see Cethan Carter perform so well and be the leading receiver.”
Jurgens said he spent a lot of the weekend with 2018 recruits Will Farniok and Austin Allen, and keeps in touch with 2017 commits Matt Sichterman and Reese Leitao.
