The #Nebraska football team has had a rather up and down summer in the recruiting front. That comes after the spring seemed to be nothing but good news. There was a time when it looked like the Huskers might be headed for their best recruiting class in decades, if not ever. That trajectory has tailed off after long dry spells and a handful of decommits. Still, the Cornhuskers 2018 class is looking about as solid as the school has had for several years. That is of course if it can hang onto the top flight commits that are still on board.

One of those commits, in fact, a commit who has appeared as solid as any player on the Nebraska football board, is sending signals he might be wavering just a little bit.

Brendan Radley-Hiles, otherwise known as Bookie has been a commit to the Husker football program since much eariler this year. He's often recruited other high school players and is quite vocal about his love for the Big Red on social media. Despite all of this, it appears Bookie is planning on taking visits to several other schools this fall. Even worse news for the Huskers nad their fans is that he seems quite excited to be doing so.

Nebraska football vs the National Champion

Despite the fact that most Husker fans have counted Radley-Hiles among the sure things for this class for months now, the defensive back is going to be visiting some pretty heavy duty campuses over the next few months. Bookie recently talked to Huskers Illustrated on Tuesday and laid out his plans moving forward. Those plans are not something most Cornhusker fans are going to be particularly pleased about.

Radley-Hiles says he's going to visiting Clemson on the same weekend the Nebraska football team will be taking on Oregon. The defensive back said he wants to see what Death Valley is all about. He added that he would like to get to know head coach Dabo Swinney. It's never good news when a player wants to visit another school. It's really bad news when that school is the defending National Champion.

Other big name schools still after Nebraska football commit

The news might have only gotten worse from there. "I plan to visit Clemson, Nebraska, Florida and Texas," Radley-Hiles said. "For that last trip, I'm looking at Oregon, Notre Dame, UCLA and Michigan." Those schools are all heavy hitters that would be hard to beat any day of the week. With some apparent wavering going on, it seems like bad news for the Nebraska football faithful. #NCAA
