The Nebraska football team continues to roll right along on the recruiting front in October. This week, the Cornhuskers could be in line to land one heck of a commitment from Darien Chase. Chase, an athlete out of Vancouver, Washington announced his final two teams on Tuesday night. The Huskers are one of the final two, along with Boise State. That's the good news. The even better news is that Chase is going to be announcing his final commitment choice on Thursday. Chase even gave the exact time he'll be announcing his decision. 12:40 PM local time, which is 2:40 PM Huskers time, he will be naming the team.

Nebraska football considered the front-runner

Boise State is no slouch. The Broncos shouldn't be dismissed as a real contender for Darien Chase's services. They are, after all, in better shape as a program than the Huskers are. At the same time, 247Sports has marked the 4-star prospect as being a soft lean towards Nebraska. There was a time in fact, when it was neck and neck between Scott Frost's group and his home-state Washington Huskies.

The Huskies have now apparently fallen by the wayside for one reason or another. That can only be considered good news for the Cornhuskers.

Chase is the third best player in Washington and the 21st ranked athlete in the 2019 class. He's also the 368th best player in the entire class according to 247. While not as highly rated on Rivals, he is also considered a slight Huskers lean by that recruiting site as well.

Darien Chase has options for schools and positions

Much like Wandale Robinson, who will be announcing his decision on November 1, the Nebraska football team could be landing itself a very versatile player.

The prospect can either play receiver or defensive back. Rumblings from Lincoln say Frost and company are looking at him being more of an offensive weapon than seeing time on the defensive side of the ball.

The Huskers of late have shown they are willing to try a player at numerous positions as long as he's comfortable doing it.

JoJo Domann is just one example. Playing safety for most of his college career, Domann has been listed as a linebacker on the most recent Cornhuskers' depth chart. The big question is what position the Boise State Broncos are looking at the target and what position Darien Chase prefers to play in college. It seems as though he is at least quite open to the idea of playing for the Nebraska football team. We'll be finding out soon enough.
