Huskers hosting three visitors this weekend as recruiting begins to wrap up
Coach Frost and his staff are hosting only three recruits this weekend they look to round out the last few pieces in their 2018 recruiting class.
The 6’2″ 200lb Watt out of Florida is a speedy receiver who can stretch defenses with his 4.6s 40-yard dash time. Unlike most wide receivers who need to add weight when coming to college Watt is an exception and physically ready to compete at the next level. Watt honed his skills against a some of the most talented defenders in Florida and was one of 247’s top performers at The Opening event in Miami last spring.
Considered an athlete by most, Cali native Matthew Tago is being recruited by the Huskers as a dual-threat quarterback. While a quarterback his 6’3″ 228lb frame could lead Tago to go down a similar path as his older brother Christian who started his career as a quarterback for San Jose State before transitioning over to linebacker for the Spartans.
Tago is an interesting recruit for the Big Red. Nebraska is the only school to offer him as a quarterback as other schools believe him to be a linebacker at the next level like his brother. Coach Frost’s offering him as a quarterback certainly gives the Huskers an edge in his recruitment so far.
The last visitor of the weekend, 6’0″ 205lbs safety Cam Taylor, is an all-state level player in Alabama’s 7A class that is loaded with NCAA talent. Taylor is an excellent athlete and capable of playing multiple positions at the next level and he flashes a 4.72s 40-yard dash that jumps out on his highlight tape.
Personally, I believe Taylor would make an excellent wide receiver as he shows tenacity when blocking defenders, superb body control, and his speed allows him to break away from defenders in the open field. He’s could also be slotted as a safety at the next level thanks to his vision and speed in the defensive backfield.
With Jojo Domann out for spring ball and a defensive backfield lacking experience, the Huskers using an official visit on Taylor indicates their willingness to take Taylor and figure out his position later.
With one final recruiting remaining, the Huskers are on several top recruits radars as the 2018 class begins to close down. Watch for these visitors to be on commitment alerts and several more next weekend as the class begins to take its final shape
