The Nebraska football team appears to be on fire, recruiting wise. Over the last two weekends, the team has gotten five different commits and four of those are for the 2018 class. On Sunday afternoon, the Huskers got that fifth commit in the form of yet another four-star receiver recruit.

This recruit, Chase Williams, is the one Brendan Radley-Hiles, otherwise known as Bookie announced without announcing on Saturday afternoon.

Bookie tweeted out there was another commit who was going to announce on Sunday but he couldn’t spill the beans on who. That meant Husker fans had to wait for hours, checking Twitter and the news in order to find out whether Bookie was right and just who the mystery commit was. Luckily they were rewarded and a team that had already vaulted into ESPN’s Top 10 recruiting rankings got yet another boost.

Dry spell officially over

The avalanche of commits that have happened in the last two weekends come after there was at least a bit of nervousness when it came to the number of commits the Nebraska football team had. The school was getting plenty of attention from some of the nation’s best recruits, but those that were committing were committing elsewhere.

The trend has officially started in the other direction. wide receiver, especially has been a position that has seen a ton of talent choose the Huskers. Wide receiver coach Keith Williams certainly has a hand in that, but it appears the players are all seeing the Cornhuskers be a team where some of the best of the best are wanting to play together.

Chase Williams is big get for Nebraska football team

One of the most interesting aspects of Williams’ commitment is that he isn’t one that was necessarily thought to be a commit on the horizon. Certainly, the Corona, California receiver had the Huskers high on his list, considering he visited for the spring game. The sheer number of power five teams that were after Williams should make any Husker fan smile, knowing he chose to be in Lincoln.

Georgia, Notre Dame, Oregon, USC and Washington are just some of the teams that were going hard after Williams. That’s because the receiver is the 18th best player in the state according to Rivals. He’s also the 25th best wide receiver in the entire class and the 141st best overall player for the 2018 group. With Williams being added to a list that had two other four-stars already committed this month, it’s going to be interesting to see where the Nebraska football team sits in the updated recruiting rankings. It will also be quite interesting to see who might be next, as it doesn’t appear the Huskers are really anywhere near being done, considering it’s still April.
