The official contact period for Nebraska football to check in with prospects is now underway. After a season with a sub-.500 record, the Huskers are looking towards the future. They'll be looking to fill a void left by senior offensive stars Devine Ozigbo and Stanley Morgan Jr., among others. Those may be filled as soon as next season, or in coming years. In addition, they've made it quite clear which area of need they're addressing in terms of trying to get the guy they want.

Coach Frost visits with several players

On Wednesday (November 28), Huskers coach Scott Frost was making the rounds from state to state, to state. He reportedly began with a trip to Savannah, Georgia, where he visited with prospect Winston Wright and his family. Wright is a three-star wide receiver who already made a verbal commitment with West Virginia this past summer. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder had a huge quarterfinals game for Memorial Day School with two receiving touchdowns, a rushing touchdown, and a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown.

He's one of several Nebraska prospects who had great performances in state playoff games.

Two other receivers have already made commitments for NU's 2019 class. They are Jamie Nance, who hails from Blanchard, Oklahoma, and Vancouver, Washington's Darien Chase. There's also some potential for recently-released Miami receiver Jeff Thomas, if NU inquires. The other potential Nebraska Cornhuskers receiver posted a photo along with a tweet about his visit with coach Frost.

After Savannah, Coach Frost headed over to Attalla, Alabama, where he made a visit with 6-foot-6, 240-pound pass-rusher Jamin Graham. He's a three-star recruit for the school. Frost finished up by flying to Greenville, South Carolina, and checked in with Jimmy Fritzsche and his family. Fritzsche is an offensive tackle/tight end.

Things will remain busy, as expected. The visits continue on Thursday (November 29) for Frost and other members of the Nebraska football staff. The head coach is scheduled to go to Leesville, Louisiana, next. There he'll meet up with Greg Austin and Ryan Held as they visit with tackle Matthew Anderson, who has already committed verbally.

One player high on NE's wishlist

Among the visits mentioned for Frost on Wednesday was Jamin Graham. The reason that particular visit stands out is that the Huskers have made adding defensive length to the football roster a major priority.

Graham is just one of the prospects who fits that bill, but they're also extremely interested in another.

High up on the team's wishlist is Ty Robinson from Gilbert, Arizona. He's a four-star defensive end and has a few other schools vying for his skill set. Nebraska is contending with Oregon, USC, and powerhouse team the Alabama Crimson Tide right now.

The USC Trojans may have lost some edge in the battle to sign Robinson after dismissing their D-line coach recently.

That could mean it's down to Oregon, USC, or the Huskers.

Robinson received a school visit from Nebraska defensive coordinator, Erik Chinander, along with defensive line coach Mike Dawson. They were planning on seeing him at home sometime on Wednesday night. However, a bigger visit could take place next month.

One thing that could fall in the Huskers' favor is that Frost plans to visit Wright on December 15, the final day of visits for the contact period. That could play in quite nicely to their pitch as National Signing Day arrives just four days later.

With Christmas around the corner, the Nebraska football team and their fans may get a major gift for the holidays.
