The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team had a heck of a weekend, and there’s one more day to go. Matt Rhule and company have a very big recruiting weekend underway and so far it’s paid off in three commitments.

The Huskers started the day with a commit from Jaylen Lloyd, an Omaha Westside receiver who si joining his teammate in kicker in Tristan Alvano. He was followed up with a couple of commitments from defensive players.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers also landed commits from Florida transfer Corey Collier and high school safety Rahmir Stewart. Considering how much success they’ve had in the very recent past, with recruiting Rhule and his staff are having success rebuilding the program in their image.

It will be interesting to see just how Sunday might go considering there are still quite a few visitors to town. Judging by how recruits have been showing up on social media, it wouldn’t be surprising to see at least two more commits coming from the weekend.
