Nebraska has learned what staying with a recruit like Wandale Robinson can do and now the coaching staff is hoping to further improve the running back recruiting. John Bivens, a talented back out of Ohio, announced earlier this week he is going to visit to see what the Huskers have to offer. Bivens set his official visit to the Cornhuskers for January 18. That visit hints at a few things that are quite interesting when it comes to trying to add yet another running back to a class that now has three. I also want to note that Nebraska is going to try to sign Wandale Robinson during a home visit.

Looking for a stable of backs for Nebraska

The commitment of Wandale Robinson, one of the biggest get for the Huskers in the 2019 class, might have convinced some that Scott Frost and company were done recruiting that position.

Bivens did make his announcement before the Robinson news, but for now, it doesn't appear plans have changed. That appears to mean the Huskers are looking to have at least four running backs in this class. The Cornhuskers already have Rahrmir Johnson out of New Jersey, Dedrick Mills from Garden City Community College and Robinson. Despite the fact that John Bivens would be coming in as the fourth member of this class at the position, it appears he's still leaning towards the Huskers. Mills also wants to remind Nebraska fans about what's to come.

John Bivens visit date is key

There are two interesting things to note for that January visit. The first is that the running back has already seen what Nebraska football has to offer, considering he was there on an unofficial visit during the 2017 spring game.

That's a bonus when it comes to holding the young man's attention. It's also interesting because it's clear Bivens isn't planning on signing a letter of intent on December 19. He'll be waiting until the February signing period. That's also useful because all three running backs who are currently committed are expecting to sign during the early period.

This will allow the Cornhuskers staff to know whether they need a "Plan B" in Bivens if one of the three has a change of heart. Of those three, Mills might be the one to keep an eye on as he now knows he'll be competing with yet another back in Robinson for playing time. If he is leaning toward the Nebraska football team, as several recruiting experts believe, he will have more than enough time to change his approach and look elsewhere.
