VIP Room: Recruiting heats up; bowl

Welcome to the VIP Room, the cornerstone feature of HuskersIllustrated.com that takes you behind the scenes and brings you the very latest on University of Nebraska athletics.

We are approaching the end of the "dead period" as 2012 comes to a close, but recruiting season is already heating up as we inch closer to Signing Day.

Nebraska received a commitment on Sunday from Florida wide receiver Dominic Walker at the Offense-Defense Bowl. Who might be the next commitment for the Huskers? Will it be a much-needed defensive tackle or offensive lineman?

Though the Huskers staff is focused on completing the 2013 recruiting class as National Signing Day approaches, that doesn't mean NU isn't working on the 2014 class as well. The Huskers have had several prospects visit bowl practices in Florida, and one of those prospects was 2014 quarterback Zack Darlington. The son of a very successful high school coach, Darlington is familiar with the Huskers and their quarterbacks. We tell you which Huskers from the past Darlington has been watching on film.

We also caught up with NU quarterback commitment Johnny Stanton to see how he is doing with his rehab. Things appear to be going well, and Stanton continues to recruit other prospects with hopes of luring them to Lincoln next season.

On the practice field, Nebraska is preparing for the bowl matchup with Georgia, but NU is also getting in some early preparations for next season. A lot of young players are getting reps, and we tell you which ones have stood out this week.

We also give you the scoop on a few other topics, and our always-popular "Quote Confidential" feature makes a return this week.
