It has been extremely obvious for a while now that the Nebraska football team is going to have to shore up its offensive line next year. There are several members of the two-deep who will be moving on before the 2019 season. Scott Frost and company are looking to bring high school prospects into Lincoln for sure. They are also looking to bring in talented JUCO players. Desmond Bland is one such JUCO player. The offensive lineman out of Arizona Western has been a commit to the Nebraska Cornhuskers since June. Recruiting has been relatively quiet for the big man, since then, right up until last week.

On Wednesday night (November 14), Bland stated that he had earlier received an official scholarship offer from Florida State.

Will Nebraska football lose a commit?

There really hasn't been any indication that Demond Bland might be headed anywhere other than Lincoln since his commitment. For the most part, Husker fans had even been talking about the offensive lineman, because he seemed to be a solid commit. The question, now, has to be, why did the Seminoles step into the spotlight, now. Is it possible the new coaching staff there had made some inroads? Is it simply a situation where they realized they needed another lineman and decided that Bland could fit the bill? That's a question we aren't going to get the answer to right away.

What is clear is that FSU is the first school to make an offer to the prospect since he gave his pledge to the Huskers. The coaches likely know this but it might be time for the Nebraska football team to make sure they can still count the guard as someone who will absolutely be signing on the dotted line when the early signing period does roll around in December.

JUCO has long been Husker focus

Since Scott Frost and his staff arrived in Lincoln, they've clearly felt as though the best way to turn around the team was to bring in junior college players at multiple positions. There was some thought that the JUCO recruiting would be severely diminished this season as they started getting their freshmen lined up and developed.

The fact of the matter is that the Cornhuskers' staff has been recruiting junior college players even harder this year.

That has included two new teammates on the defensive side of the ball from Riverside C.C. It's also included linebacker trying to recruit Dru Mathis. It has also included players on the offensive side of the ball, like Desmond Bland. Now, the question becomes whether or not the Nebraska football team can lock him down.
