As the Nebraska Football team looks at closing up the 2017 recruiting class, there are still some players that might be had, that aren't quite under the Cornhuskers' banner. There are several high-level offensive players, especially that NU still has its collective eyes on, including one player who is committed to Oregon but might be willing to look elsewhere.

Oregon still the leader for now

While the Nebraska football team is trying its best to get one more running back in this class, CJ Verdell might, in the end, be one that the Huskers aren't able to steal away from the Ducks.

If they manage to grab the three-star running back, it would mean that they would be getting a player who ran for well over 2,100 yards in his senior season while scoring 28 touchdowns. Considering that the running back position should be wide open for someone to come in and grab the starting job, that might be enough to raise some eyebrows.

Can the Huskers pull him away?

The Nebraska football team is on a bit of a roll when it comes to recruiting right now, with players like Elijah Blades taking a second look, and players like Tyjon Lindsey announcing they were leaving another school in order to get to Lincoln. In fact, after a couple of months where it appeared they were heading in the wrong direction, signing day could be very exciting for the Husker faithful.

While there are some recruits who are likely going to be signing with the Nebraska football team that the fans have seen coming, Verdell is one that would definitely be a dark horse. On the other hand, when it comes down to the schools he is looking at for his services, it really has come down to Oregon and the Huskers. Mike Riley and company seem to have found a way to sell California players on why they should be happy to leave and come to the Corn Coast. Oregon is also in a bit of a transition period, with a new head coach and staff. Perhaps the running back will decide that he'd rather have stability with a team coming off of a 9-4 season.
