It’s been quite a while since the Nebraska football team has reeled in a commit. That could be changing in the very near future. And when the Huskers do get their next commit, it appears there’s a pretty decent chance it will be from a 4-star Texas wide receiver.

That actually doesn’t narrow it down as the Nebraska Cornhuskers are apparently trending for a couple of Lone State state prospects. This time around the team is looking like they’re sitting pretty for Emmanuel Choice.

It doesn’t appear as though Choice is all that close to pulling the trigger just yet, but it does appear that recruiting analysts believe they have an idea where he’s leaning. On3 has now given the Nebraska football team the edge, with a 44 percent chance of landing the 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver.

The closest competitor, according to that site, for Choice’s talents is the USC Trojans. There was a time when that would have been two separate conferences doing battle. However, this time around, it’s a conference rivalry with one of the Big Ten’s newest squads.

At the moment, the same site gives the Trojans a 29 percent chance of winning the recruiting chase for Choice and for now, it looks like it’s a two-team fight. Interestingly enough, the Texas Longhorns are a rather distance third for the Lancaster, Texas prospect.

It’s worth pointing out that at this point, On3 is the only service that is predicting the very talented wide receiver will end up in Lincoln. Matt Rhule and company are going to definitely have their chance to make their case. 

Choice will be on an official visit in Lincoln during the Huskers’ spring game on an official visit. That’s big enough. However, USC isn’t anywhere near out of the picture yet. Nebraska football will need to make quite an impression as he’s visiting USC on an OV a month later.
