    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): Peat's official visit to Nebraska is only a few weeks away. Florida State appears to remain the primary opposition for the Cornhuskers in this battle, but Stanford looks to be making a push. – 16 weeks

    2.) ATH Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller has been battling a leg injury, but has still been performing well. Things appear to be on auto-pilot right now and barring some unforeseen major event that shakes things up, Fuller’s visit to see Nebraska take on Ohio State gives the Huskers ample ammunition to lock up a commit from one of the nation’s best prospects. – 16 weeks

    3.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): Beaver scored a crucial touchdown last week leading his team to victory. Much like Fuller, it appears that he’s focused on his season and that his trip to see the Cornhuskers battle the Buckeyes will provide a much better look at his intentions. – 9 weeks

    4.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): Diggs makes his second trip to Lincoln in five weeks with an official trip to see Nebraska play Ohio State. There’s a lot of love going back and forth between Diggs and the Cornhuskers. The last time this sort of communication went both ways, Nebraska landed quarterback Tommy Armstrong. – 9 weeks

    5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): Jiles still hasn’t officially locked in a firm commitment to be at the Ohio State/Nebraska game. At this point in the process, one has to wonder if Nebraska’s not looking elsewhere with his hesitation. – 6 weeks

    6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): Like several other prospects, Big Vince has been quiet. It has to be disheartening for Nebraska’s staff that he hasn’t set a visit date yet. A trip to see the Cornhuskers take on Michigan State is possible, but Northwestern or Iowa appears more likely. – 6 weeks

    7.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): Bullard’s one of the best defensive prospects in the country, he’s been to Florida and South Carolina already and apparently loved both visits. Clearly, there’s no pressure on Nebraska to wow him during his October 8 trip.

    If the Cornhuskers have any main competition, it’d have to be the Gamecocks. Spurrier’s work at South Carolina coupled with the proximity to home may be the difference. Be glad that he’s coming to see Nebraska take on Ohio State, because he may not take all five official visits. – 8 weeks

    8.) LB Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, NJ): Lambert has all five official visits set: Alabama, Iowa, Northwestern, Oklahoma and Nebraska. Not only could he come in and make an immediate impact for Nebraska, but the Cornhuskers can point to recent success at the position. Nebraska linebacker commit Michael Rose also plans to be in attendance and in Lambert’s ear. – 5 weeks

    *NEW* 9. WR/ATH Alonzo Moore (Winnfield, Louisiana): At one point, Nebraska was after Hialeah, Florida's Ghierry Vanderkuyp pretty heavily. That relationship appears to have fizzled, but another one’s heating up between the Cornhuskers and the talented Alonzo Moore.

    He’s been to Lincoln a number of times. He participated in a camp during which he showed skills as a wide receiver, defensive back and even at quarterback. Moore was in town last weekend to watch Nebraska pull away from the Huskies and was very impressed. It’s looking like he could be commit No. 8.

    10. OT Evan Goodman (Lakeland, FL): Nebraska’s still in the conversation for Goodman’s services along with Arizona State (to whom he’s currently committed), Auburn and Florida State. Whomever picks Goodman up will be getting a bargain as the big man from Florida will be graduating early and can enroll come January. – 3 weeks

    Dropped out: Tommy Armstrong (Committed to Nebraska)

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL RECRUITING: The Big Board 9/15

    By Brandon Cavanaugh

    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): It sounds like Peat’s visit to watch Nebraska take on the Buckeyes has been solidified. As of today, Peat’s visit to Lincoln is the only official trip that he's set up. In an interesting twist, Peat may not be travelling anywhere else until his team wraps their season up. Two schools that are likely to earn visits are Texas and Florida State, the latter being Nebraska’s strongest challenger in this battle. – 15 weeks

    2.) ATH Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller was in Happy Valley to watch the Nittany Lions this past weekend, but his only scheduled official visit is still Nebraska’s bout with Ohio State. While Penn State always presents a fantastic game day atmosphere, especially when playing a team like No. 2 Alabama, Fuller appears to have his eyes set on Lincoln for now. – 15 weeks

    3.) QB Tommy Armstrong (Cibolo, Texas): It’s finally time for Armstrong to visit Lincoln. This'll be a prime opportunity to meet the other pieces of Tim Beck’s offensive puzzle. All reports up to this point have indicated extremely positive things between the two parties. A commitment by Armstrong following the weekend would be far from shocking. - 13 weeks

    4.) CB Brandon Beaver: Same song, different verse. The cornerback from Compton is being heavily pursued, but only has one official visit planned - Nebraska’s first Big Ten home game versus Ohio State. – 8 weeks

    5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): Things could get interesting in a hurry with Jiles. At one point, he seemed a heavy Nebraska lean, but after cutting his list down to five (Ole Miss, North Carolina, Purdue, Wake Forest and Nebraska), North Carolina is the only team that Jiles has scheduled an official visit with. He’ll be tripping to see the Tar Heels play Virginia this weekend. – 5 weeks

    6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): There’s no news coming out of Big Vince’s camp this week, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing considering that his love for the Huskers has been in a holding pattern for a while now. – 15 weeks

    7.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): Diggs flew out from Cape Coral last week to visit Lincoln. He made sure to meet up with Nebraska commit Michael Rose in Lincoln as the two have become fast friends. Diggs’ unofficial trip from Florida to watch the Huskers take on Fresno State should speak for itself, but he plans to see the Big Red in action a second time against Ohio State. Talk of the dreaded “silent commit” has already cropped up. – 8 weeks

    8.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): It’s down to three: Florida, South Carolina and Nebraska. That John Papuchis has taken Nebraska this far into the process with Bullard is impressive. The Cornhuskers are Bullard’s only official visit scheduled. He’ll be adding even more star power to the Ohio State tilt. It sounds like Florida may be the team to beat. If Papuchis can get Nebraska this far, watch for the Cornhuskers to put all of their chips on the table to put one of the nation’s best defensive end prospects in scarlet and cream. – 7 weeks

    9.) LB Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, NJ): One of the nation’s top inside linebackers, Lambert has plans to visit Northwestern, Iowa, Nebraska and Alabama, respectively. It sounds like Oklahoma is pushing to get him scheduled as well. Linebackers coach Ross Els continues to forge a bond with the New Jersey native. A full court press before he visits Alabama is likely just in case the luster of the SEC giant is too much to refuse. – 4 weeks

    10.) OT Evan Goodman (Lakeland, FL) – Reports indicate that Goodman enjoyed his trip to Lincoln as he took in Nebraska’s 42-29 victory over the Fresno State Bulldogs. Like Peat, he doesn’t plan on scheduling any further visits until his season ends, but if he continues to trip, the Huskers are going to have some stiff competition. The defending national champion Auburn Tigers look to be next on a potential itinerary

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL RECRUITING: The Big Board 9/08

    5,689 views

    By HuskerLocker

    Blog post image

    By Brandon Cavanaugh

    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): A trip to Lincoln has been tentatively scheduled by Peat for the Ohio State game. He’ll be in very good company as several of Nebraska’s top prospects will be in town. – 14 weeks

    2.) ATH Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller is another prospect planning to travel for Nebraska’s tilt against the Buckeyes. The Cornhuskers have been working Fuller hard and when an athlete of his caliber gives a school heavy looks, they’d better pull out all of the stops. Nebraska may be in the battle for Fuller until he pulls the trigger. – 14 weeks

    3.) QB Tommy Armstrong (Cibolo, Texas): Could Nebraska partially address their need for quarterbacks during this cycle before too long? It’s been no secret that communication between Armstrong and the Cornhuskers has been frequent. He’ll be visiting next week for the Washington game. A commitment from Armstrong wouldn’t be a surprise. - 12 weeks

    4.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): Another Ohio State game attendee, the Cornhuskers still appear to be the only team outside of the Pac-12 that Beaver is considering. Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA sound like the main competition for the uber-talented cornerback’s services. – 7 weeks

    5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): The Buckeye battle keeps getting bigger with the addition of a planned trip by Jiles. He’s been showing off his versatility at Cape Coral High School where he put in solid time at receiver and even ran the ball this past week. – 4 weeks

    6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): A new challenger appears! While Big Vince is still high on the Cornhuskers, another Big Ten foe appears to be making up ground quickly in Illinois. Valentine plans to make trips later in the season. If Nebraska could bring him in for Northwestern or Iowa, they could seal the deal assuming his relationship with the Cornhuskers remains positive. –14 weeks

    7.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): The situation with Diggs has gotten very interesting. He’s planning to visit unofficially this weekend as the Huskers take on Fresno State. In other words, he’s plunking down his own money. He’ll be attending the Ohio State game officially, but one has to wonder with Diggs making an unofficial visit from Florida if he won’t be a Nebraska commitment by then. – 7 weeks

    8.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): Nebraska has never been afraid of the SEC on the football field, and apparently they’re not shaking in their shoes on the recruiting trail either. Bullard is another Ohio State game attendee and assuming he caught the Huskers’ game against UTC, he had to have come away impressed with the work of Nebraska’s defensive ends. – 6 weeks

    9.) LB Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, NJ): Lambert’s already lined up to visit Nebraska for their game against Michigan State. He's ranked very highly by all main recruiting services which is all well and good, but his versatility speaks for itself. He could be either a punishing MIKE linebacker or be one of the most physical outside linebackers in the Big Ten under Pelini’s watch. – 3 weeks

    *NEW* 10.) OT Evan Goodman (Lakeland, FL) – With some scholarships opening up, it’s never too early to start adding quality depth. After last year's amazing haul of offensive linemen, the Huskers appear to be in good positions with Andrus Peat and current Arizona State commit Evan Goodman. Add their potential commitments to current verbal Paul Thurston and you have another stellar crop of offensive linemen.

    Don’t let Goodman's commitment fool you. He'll be in town this weekend to watch Nebraska take on Fresno State. He’s very impressed with Nebraska’s tradition when it comes to offensive linemen, so don’t be surprised if the Cornhuskers deal ASU’s class a devastating blow.

    Dropped out: WR/ATH Ghierry Van der Kuyp (Lack of communication)

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL RECRUITING: The Big Board 8/21

    8,331 views

    By HuskerLocker

    Blog post image

    By Brandon Cavanaugh

    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): It looks like there may be a stalemate here. Notre Dame, Texas, Florida State and Nebraska are the Peat’s “Final Four”. That’s likely not to change until he starts making official visits. – 12 weeks

    2.) ATH Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller has a handful of top-tier schools in his “Elite 11.” None of them can rest easy, because that number is getting ready to shrink by approximately six in the next few weeks. Nebraska is recruiting Fuller with a wide range of offensive ideas in mind much like Jamal Turner. A strong showing by Nebraska’s offensive versus the Mocs may solidify the Big Red’s place in Fuller’s Fab Five. – 12 weeks

    3.) QB Tommy Armstrong (Cibolo, Texas): While the Cornhuskers have serious competition for Armstrong’s services in Southern Miss, the Cornhuskers have two big things going for them right now: Bubba Starling’s not coming to Lincoln this year and Armstrong’s will visit in mid-September with no USM trip made as of yet. - 8 weeks

    4.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): Beaver could’ve committed to someone by now as he was going to have a press conference set up to announce, but he’s decided to wait until after his visits. He only has his trip to Lincoln set up as of now. Rumors have floated about him leaning towards a couple of Pac-12 schools, but with the press conference cancellation, one has to wonder if Nebraska’s Corey Raymond has an ace up his sleeve. – 5 weeks

    5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): There was a high probability that Miami (FL) was going to be in a good position to land Jiles. With scandal surrounding The U, that potential might have fallen through. He’s getting attention from other in-state schools, but he’s holding an actual offer from Nebraska. – 2 weeks

    6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): The end of Valentine’s recruitment features a potential recruiting reenactment of the 1996 Fiesta Bowl. Nebraska and Florida are going to likely be the only two schools to get an official visit from Big Vince. The Cornhuskers have been the team to beat for a while now. Florida’s going to have to pull out all the stops to get him to sway. –12 weeks

    7.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): The U.S. Army All-American Game participant is taking the recruiting process slow and steady. He has approximately 10 schools that he’s eyeballing the hardest including Michigan State, Tennessee, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Nebraska. His visit for the Ohio State tilt is still on and with Nebraska commit-turned-cheerleader Michael Rose attending, Diggs may be a Cornhusker following that weekend. – 5 weeks

    8.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): Nebraska’s sitting surprisingly high with Bullard. The Cornhuskers are doing all they can to remain in this fight for one of the best defensive end prospects in the country. Right now, Florida, Alabama, Clemson and South Carolina look to be the primary competition. With the Cornhuskers severe need of defensive ends, the depth chart and game day atmosphere during Bullard’s visit should keep NU on his list until at least late in the season. – 4 weeks

    *NEW* 9.) LB Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, NJ): The Cornhuskers have Michael Rose and Deion Jones, but when you have a need for quality linebackers and the ear of an athlete like Lambert, you go for a talented trifecta. Nebraska’s main competition for the stud prospect looks to be Alabama, Oklahoma and Northwestern. It’s not shocking that Ron Brown has been dispatched to help recruit the New Jersey native. Brown appears to enjoy swinging for the fences when it comes to bringing in young talent.

    10.) WR/ATH Ghierry Van der Kuyp (Hialeah, FL): Van der Kuyp still doesn’t have a trip to Nebraska set up, but his interest level appears to remain the same. Not much has come out of his camp lately, but with the college football season rapidly approaching, expect some official visits to be scheduled in a hurry. – 6 weeks

    Dropped out: DE Taiwan Johnson (More immediate need at LB)

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL RECRUITING: The Big Board 8/7

    7,384 views

    By HuskerLocker

    Blog post image

    By Brandon Cavanaugh

    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): Peat has narrowed his list down to a final four: Texas, Florida State, Notre Dame and Nebraska. He visited the Longhorns during the July 22 weekend and there’s plenty of room for offensive tackles of Peat’s caliber on their depth chart. However, it appears that this race will come down to Florida State and Nebraska.– 11 weeks

    2.) QB Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): As it stands, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin have made the cut for Fuller’s services, but those 14 can't breathe easy just yet. Fuller plans to update this list, potentially as soon as this Friday. – 11 weeks

    3.) QB Tommy Armstrong (Cibolo, TX): It’s come down to two schools: Nebraska and Southern Miss. Armstrong will take his official visit to Nebraska the week of September 17 when Nebraska plays host to the Washington Huskies. As of now, he’s only set up the one visit to Lincoln and may very well commit if the Huskers shellac the Huskies like they did in Seattle last year. - 7 weeks

    4.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): With Nebraska’s cornerback depth dwindling following this season combined with the unknown status of 2010 recruit Charles Jackson, Nebraska needs to get at least two quality players at the position during this cycle. Beaver would be a huge get and has already set his official visit for September 10 when Nebraska takes on the Fresno State Bulldogs. – 4 weeks

    *NEW* 5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): Speaking of big-time cornerbacks, Jiles would be a solid complement to Beaver. Jiles is friends with current Big Board members Jordan Diggs and Ghierry Van der Kuyp. He’ll be visiting along with Diggs for Nebraska’s first Big Ten home game versus Ohio State setting the stage for both a huge win and commitment.

    6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, IL): Husker coaches John Garrison and John Papuchis have been burning the midnight oil working to snag Valentine’s commitment. It’s paid off in a big way as it appears that he’s a Nebraska lean. This should be considered an impressive feat as he also has offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida and several other major FBS programs. Allegedly, he wants to wait until December or January to commit, however it wouldn’t be a shock if he was in the fold well before then. – 11 weeks

    7.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): Papuchis is hot on the trail of Diggs as well. As mentioned, he’ll be joining his friend Tyreece Jiles for the Ohio State game. He loves the Blackshirt tradition. Recent first-round NFL draft pick Prince Amukamara and senior cornerback Alfonzo Dennard are two players that have shown Diggs what he can become in Bo Pelini’s secondary. His commitment could come with Jiles’ following the tilt with the Buckeyes. – 4 weeks

    8.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): Another Ohio State game attendee, Bullard’s an unknown at this point. If he makes the trip, that’ll be a huge milestone on the way towards garnering his commitment as the game day atmosphere has been known to sell itself. Nebraska is going to have to fend off a number of SEC and ACC powers to land this North Carolinian prospect, but it can be done. – 3 weeks

    9.) WR/ATH Ghierry Van der Kuyp (Hialeah, FL): Van der Kuyp wants to be in town for the Ohio State game with Jiles and Diggs, but that trip has yet to be lined up. At first, it looked like Nebraska wanted to plug him in at cornerback. Thanks to interest from the likes of Beaver, the Cornhuskers look to develop his athleticism at receiver where he could be even more effective. – 5 weeks

    10.) DE Taiwan Johnson (Manvel, TX): If Nebraska secures the commitments of the aforementioned Bullard and Taiwan Johnson, they’ll get an “A” for securing badly needed, quality depth. The Cornhuskers have an opportunity to take another step closer toward that tremendous trifecta as Johnson will be visiting on September 17 for the Washington game. – 5 weeks

    Dropped out: TE Orlando David

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL RECRUITING: The Big Board 6/28

    5,824 views

    By HuskerLocker

    Blog post image

    By Brandon Cavanaugh

    Time spent on the Big Board is in italics

    1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): The last time we updated the Big Board, Peat had 13 schools that he was looking at, but that number appears to be shrinking in a hurry. He’s publically said that both Notre Dame and Nebraska will be in it until the end, but watch out for Florida State to put the full-court press on Peat. – 6 weeks

    2.) QB Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller’s upcoming visit to Nebraska in July could be what seals the deal or causes him to look elsewhere. The Cornhuskers allegedly run an offense similar to the one he’s currently a part of and that sense of familiarity works in Nebraska’s favor. The longer Fuller goes without committing after the visit, the worse it is for the Huskers’ chances. – 6 weeks

    3.) QB Tommy Armstrong (Cibolo, Texas): It’s become apparent that Anthony Alford’s commit is a pipe dream and that he’ll likely be an SEC quarterback, but one signal-caller who has been getting plenty of pub lately is Steele High School’s Tommy Armstrong. Nebraska’s in dire need of a quarterback this cycle and with the amount of attention that Armstrong’s been getting, it wouldn’t be shocking for him to be that guy. - 2 weeks

    *NEW* 4.) WR/ATH Ghierry Vanderkuyp (Hialeah, FL): Vanderkuyp’s name has been on the lips of many in recent weeks, so it seems appropriate to make him this week’s first new name on the Big Board. His athleticism allows him to play on both sides of the ball, but with Nebraska’s deep receiving corps, expect the Cornhuskers to chat him up about starting at safety.

    5.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): Nothing much new to report out of the Valentine camp, but at this point no new is good news. Valentine's been a fan of John Papuchis and the NU defensive staff for quite some time now and that doesn't appear likely to change in the near future. – 6 weeks

    *NEW* 6.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): Diggs’ commitment would be somewhere in between Greg McMullen’s and Andrus Peat’s. He’d easily be one of the best athletes in the class and wouldn’t you know it? He’s coming to visit Nebraska in late July. Coaches John Papuchis and Corey Raymond have been his key contacts and the Cornhuskers have been putting plenty of energy into recruiting Florida. It’s time for it to pay off.

    *NEW* 7.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): Nebraska’s had the luxury of a deep, talented and experienced corps of defensive backs, but the cornerback position is quickly becoming razor-thin. Beaver recently worked out at the B2GSports camp at UCLA with a busted hand and had some issues as a result. Once healed, he’ll prove why he’s arguably one of the best in the country.

    *NEW* 8.) TE Orlando David (Hollywood, FL): Just because Sam Cotton committed to Nebraska doesn’t mean that the race for a tight end is over. Sam’s film on defense appears more impressive than his tight end work, so a switch to defensive end isn’t out of the question. David still has plans to visit Nebraska during the fall and other programs are starting to take notice of the Floridian tight end.

    *NEW* 9.) DE Taiwan Johnson (Manvel, TX): Nebraska continues to try and fill the defensive end ranks as they go after another highly-touted athlete in Johnson. Wide receivers coach Ross Fisher and John Papuchis, who would be his position coach at Nebraska, have two of the best relationships with Taiwan according to the athlete himself.

    10.) WR Kenny Lawler (Upland, CA): Lawler may be on borrowed time when it comes to his stay on the Big Board as Nebraska’s not looking to take too many wide receivers. With the commitment of Jordan Westerkamp a few weeks back, one has to think that the door is closing at Nebraska. He still wants to take his visits this fall, but if the Cornhuskers lock up all needs on offense, he may be left out of the class. – 3 weeks

    Dropped out: TE Christo Kourtzidis (Comitted to Florida State), TE Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick (Committed to Southern California), QB Anthony Alford
