2nd transfer WR could be Nebraska football bound this weekend

Hot on the heels of Isaiah Neyor, it appears the Nebraska football team is about to land a second transfer receiver.

Now that the Nebraska football team has locked down its quarterback of the future in Dylan Raiola, the next step is to provide him with some weapons. And not just some weapons of the future, but some weapons he can use next fall.

One of those weapons announced his commitment late Friday night when Isaiah Neyor committed to the Nebraska football team. It’s possible that he won’t be the only transfer wide receiver to give his pledge to the Huskers this weekend.

Former Wake Forest wide receiver Jahmal Banks is in town for an official visit this weekend, and he started to get some predictions for the Huskers on Saturday morning. While On3 doesn’t officially do Crystal Balls, it does appear as though one of the site’s analysts, Bryan Munson believes Banks is committing to NU soon.

In fact, On3 currently has the former Demon Deacon listed as a 99% chance of landing in Lincoln. The only other team that appears to really be on the radar is West Virginia, but he’s not convincing many people he’ll head to the Big 12 squad.

Nebraska football adding weapons at wide receiver

Should Banks end up with the Huskers, it would be a clear sign that Matt Rhule and company are once again being very careful and very deliberate about who they add through the transfer portal.

There are some teams out there that have made it clear they will bring in replacements at any position from the portal, but the Cornhuskers haven’t hit the portal that hard at all so far this year. 

Before Neyor on Friday, their only transfer addition was FCS defensive back Blye Hill, who officially joined the Nebraska football program on Early National Signing Day.

In addition to a couple of wide receivers, the Nebraska football team also hopes to add a running back to the class in former Oregon Ducks player Dante Dowdell, who is also on a visit this weekend.
