The Nebraska football team has, by all accounts had a pretty solid spring. For the first time in a very long time, the Huskers are in most peoples' Top 10 recuiting rankings. That doesn't even count the number of players the school is in on that haven't committed anywhere yet.

One of Nebraska's top recruits is set to announce on Sunday, June 18 and if he decides to become a Cornhusker, it will be yet another big boost to the school's recruiting rankings.

Joshua Moore has long pinned June 18 as the date he will announce as a way to pay homage to an older brother that passed away on that date. It's long believed the experts knew exactly what school he was going to be committing to when he did commit but there are some looking pieces of evidence that he might not be a lock after all.

Nebraska still hoping for the best with Moore

The Huskers are still considered among the top picks for Joshua Moore though it seems some of the other teams have picked up steam.

Nebraska is not the standalone favorite that are making all other comers obsolete. 247Sports still has the Huskers as a 69 percent chance of landing the wide receiver, but Florida State has been climbing the ranks. Texas, Oklahoma and LSU are all in the mix as well but there is another team that some people think might be stealing the heart of the top recruit.

Texas A&M is, for some reason not listed on the 247Sports crystal ball, but it's clear he has an affinity for the school.

Moore has recently visited the Aggies which is a school his brother has already committed to for a while. Nebraska has long known it was making some big time inroads with the nation's 12th ranked wide receiver. The school has pulled out all the stops, including offering him a track scholarship when it became apparent that was something he was interested in doing. Now the program will just have to sit back and see whether he's going to call their name on Sunday.

Nebraska will have to continue recruiting after announcement day

One thing that seems certain is that whoever Moore picks, will have to consider him a soft commit. This is a player who has enjoyed the attention of the recruiting process. He's also someone who appears to have a place in his heart for more than one school.

It is simply the way of things that when a player announces he commits to a school like Nebraska, there is still going to be quite a lot of work to do. Still, the coaching staff and fans around the country are going to be holding their collective breaths.
