The Nebraska Football team is doing what it does best and is using its spring practice to try and show potential future Huskers what they could be a part of if they commit to Matt Rhule and company. For one of the top cornerback prospects in the country, it looks like they’re going to be using the Red-White game to cement a commitment.

The good news here is that some recruiting analysts believe the Nebraska Football team will indeed seal the deal. If those predictions are correct, the Nebraska Football team is set to land 4-star defensive back Adonyss Currie. If that does happen, it’s going to be one of the most impressive gets of this recruiting cycle.

According to On3, the Huskers are now in the lead as far as commitment predictions with NU given a 28 perent chance of landing the Quartz Hill product. At the moment, the Utah Utes are running in second place with an 18 percent chance to win the DB’s services.

It’s no secret why the Cornhuskers are hoping to gain the pledge of Currie. For starters, he’s an absolute speed demon. Last month, Currie broke his own school record in the boys 200-meter dash, posting a 21.07 second time that is the fastest in the state of California for this season.

On the football field last season, Adonyss Currie is also plenty impressive. Last season, the 4-star prospect who is considered among the best defensive backs in the class and best players in his home state did damage on both sides of the field.

On defense, Currie tallied 35 tackles, 3 sacks, 4 interceptions, 6 passes defensed and 2 fumble recoveries. On offense, he rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown while catching 47 passes for 865 yards and 9 TDs.

The two-sport star got an offer from the Nebraska Football team back on March 5, just a few days before he set his new school track record. He’s due to return on April 27 for the Spring Game and it seems at least possible that Adonyss Currie will pull the trigger on a commitment while he’s in town.
