Nebraska football fans have been put on the edge of their seat thanks to a tease by one of the top wide receiver prospects in the state in Dae’vonn Hall.
Anyone who has been following recruiting at all knows that things can get a little topsy-turvy from time to time. Over the weekend, things did indeed get pretty topsy-turvy for Nebraska football fans.
Overall, it was a pretty good weekend with numerous commitments from some under-the-radar kids that Matt Rhule and company believe can make their team better. Then came the tweet from a high-level prospect that Nebraska football fans thought had slipped through Rhule’s fingers.
“Big announcement coming soon …stay tuned,” Dae’Vonn Hall tweeted.
That tweet all on its own might have simply been the last shovel of dirt on the coffin containing Nebraska football’s chances of landing the 4-star wide receiver. After all, it was thought that the Huskers and Hal arrived at a mutual decision to part ways.
However, a similar tweet by teammate, fellow wide receiver and Huskers’ prospect Isaiah McMorris at about the same time hinted that something might be afoot. That the Huskers might have landed the two receivers, who also play alongside Huskers commit Daniel Kaelin, as a kind of package deal.
Nebraska football about to pull a big one off?
Just when “soon” is going to be is still a mystery as of Tuesday night. Neither Hall nor McMorris have announced any big news. But 247Sports recruiting analyst Michael Bruntz added a bit of fuel to the fire when he made a new prediction for Hall to land on the Nebraska football team.
The question now is, just how close is the 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver to pulling the trigger? After all, he just got a scholarship offer from the Tennessee Volunteers. It’s hard to ignore a school like that, with an offense that was as explosive as any in the country.
When the coach of that squad tells you he wants you to be part of his team, that has a certain pull.
So now Nebraska football fans sit and wait. Is the receiver that seemed destined to be headed elsewhere going to stick close to home? Apparently we’ll find out “soon.”
