Nebraska football recruiting: 2017 Early Signing Period news

Plenty of storylines to watch for Nebraska football recruiting heading into the Early Signing Period

It’s a new era of football in Lincoln and that means Nebraska football recruiting can expect some big changes with Scott Frost in town. One of those big changes faces every program this year with the Early Signing Period, allowing recruits to sign letters of intent on Dec. 20 and lock themselves into their future collegiate team.

One of the big things to watch will be if the Huskers can get signatures from two long-time commitments -- Cameron Jurgens and Tate Wildeman -- during the Early Signing Period. Both are a big part of Nebraska’s recruiting class, but both have also taken visits elsewhere this offseason, with Jurgens going to see LSU and Wildeman having been to Washington State and Colorado State. Frost would certainly want to keep both in the 2018 class.

Here are other players the Huskers are targeting:


Nebraska football faces a big challenge with the Early Signing Period and Frost’s first task will be to make sure he can get Joshua Moore to sign on Dec. 20. Landing the four-star wide receiver would be an Early Signing Day win, as Moore has been committed to the Huskers since June. The receiver is also an early enrollee, so he could be on campus in January and ready to help the Huskers this spring, as the team transitions to Frost’s new offense.


While the Huskers have some star power with Moore, a big issue facing the team will be if Nebraska recruiting can find the right quarterback for Frost’s offense by the start of the Early Signing Period. The Huskers are chasing four-star dual-threat quarterback Adrian Martinez out of Fresno, Calif., as well as junior college quarterback Terry Wilson, who was recruited by Frost at Oregon. Both quarterbacks could have decisions before Dec. 20 and sign on Early Signing Day. Additionally, Nebraska needs to find help all across the defense, as Frost and the rest of his staff have made a strong push to find some speed in the secondary and at the linebacker position.


Nebraska will also take some chances on a few other junior college players as the team tries to build up its roster depth ahead of the Early Signing Period. Arizona Western teammates Greg Bell and Jaron Woodyard both are visiting Nebraska this month and the running back, receiver combination could greatly enhance the team’s offense.


The Huskers are also pursuing Arkansas commit Noah Banks, an offensive tackle from Iowa Western Community college. Banks plans to visit Florida next week.
