The Nebraska football team was named amongst the final six of Dominick Watt.

Anyone who thought Scott Frost and the Nebraska football coaches would be resting on their laurels after the early signing day were fooling themselves. The staff is looking to get as good a 2018 recruiting class as it possibly can when February comes and goes.

Good news on that front came on Tuesday morning as a bit of a late Christmas present. Four-star receiver Dominick Watt announced his final six.

On his official Twitter account, Watt said he would be closing his recruiting except for the final six schools. The Huskers made the cut as the only Big Ten school still in the running.

Along with Nebraska, Watt named Louisville, Pitt, South Florida, Kentucky and Cincinnati. That’s quite an interesting group for such a talented receiver.

The most interesting addition of the group has to be Cincinnati, which is attempting to bring itself back up to being a very good mid-major. The Bearcats have been mediocre at best the last few years.

Watt, out of Hollywood, Florida leaving out the big three Florida schools is also going to raise some eyebrows. The good news is with Cincy and Pittsburgh on the list, the Huskers likely don’t have to worry about Watt being turned off by the weather in Lincoln.

The receiver is ranked as the 44th best receiver in 2018 the country by Rivals and the 57th best player overall in the state of Florida. Dominick Watt did not give any indication when he might be choosing between the Nebraska football team and the other schools on his list.
