The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Monday through Friday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
Nebraska’s best shot at landing a top recruit this weekend is 4-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin.
Calvin, the No. 36 receiver in the 2017 class from Cathedral High School (Los Angeles), has recently been raking in more and more offers, including from Texas, Baylor and Oregon.
He told Land of 10 on Wednesday he has a pretty good idea of where he will commit on Saturday, and why.
The favorite right now is Nebraska. 247sports Crystal ball predictions currently have 18 predictions for Calvin to land in Lincoln. He’s also considering Alabama, Notre Dame and Washington State.
He mentioned on Wednesday that Nebraska’s new cornerbacks coach Donte Williams is a “factor” in his decision.
Here’s what else he had to say Wednesday at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl:

Darnay Holmes is not packed yet.

He’ll enroll early, which means a quick turnaround from San Antonio at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday to classes soon after.
But Holmes told Land of 10 on Wednesday he’s not picked a school yet. And thus, he’s not packed.
Land of 10 reporter Jeremy Birmingham caught up with Holmes one final time before the All-American Bowl on Saturday. Here’s what else the Calabasas (Calif.) High School prospect had to say:
Chuck Filiaga thinks he’s found his school
He’s not 100 percent sure yet.
But when Chuck Filiaga, a 4-star offensive tackle from Aledeo, Texas, commits, he said he’ll be 110 percent committed.
The 6-foot-6, 335-pound tackle told Land of 10 on Wednesday he’s taken this long to decide specifically so he won’t end up decommitting down the road. Filiaga recently named his final three schools, which are Nebraska, Oklahoma and Michigan.
He said on Wednesday he thinks he’s found his school and is mostly sure of his commitment on Saturday, but “another” school is still in the running.
