The Nebraska football team might just be picking up yet another commit by the end of the week. On one of those runs the school has honestly rarely, if ever seen when it comes to hauling in verbal commitments in such a short period of time, yet another Husker target has said he will be announcing his school on Friday, May 5. During the Twitter announcement, Stephan Blaylock narrowed his choices for schools down to a final five.

After showing off the teams that had made the cut, he announced he will be committing on Friday at 7PM. The news should get quite a few fanbases fired up, considering Blaylock is considered one of the best safeties in the 2018 class.

In fact, he's ranked as the 36th best player in the state of California and the 23rd best safety. He's inside of the 300 best recruits at any position by 247 Sports. Of course, if the Huskers are going to win Blaylock over, they're going to have their work cut out for him.

West coast bias against Nebraska football

One of the big factors going against Nebraska is simply the other teams that the California defensive back have named are all quite a bit closer to home. The list of schools includes the Huskers, Oregon, UCLA, Washington State, and Colorado. Only the Buffaloes aren't technically on the West Coast, though it's a no-brainer why they would be included in the list.

That Blaylock is looking outside the Pac 12 only for Nebraska should be considered a nice omen, even if nothing comes from it once he does announce his final choice, inclusion does show the Huskers continue to raise the eyebrows of some of the best players in the country.

Now Mike Riley and company just need to find a way to close the deal. It's a safe bet Blaylock is getting quite the flurry of attention thanks to the new deadline.

Oregon is the team to beat

While all of the Pac 12 teams are going to be tough to fend off, it appears Oregon is the real rival when it comes to who the Nebraska football team needs to knock off.

Blaylock has plenty of pictures show how much he enjoyed his visit to the Ducks and 247 Sports has their crystal ball predictions showing the defensive back as a heavy Oregon lean. At the same time, teams like Arizona and BYU were thought to be players when it came to deciding where Blaylock was going to spend his college years.

Both schools were left off the list of his final five. Come 7 PM local time, all eyes are going to be on Blaylock to see if he shocks the world and picks Nebraska or goes where he's expected to go and head to Oregon.
