The Nebraska football team is going to be wrapping up its 2019 recruiting cycle, on Wednesday, so it's officially time to turn its attention to the 2020 cycle and beyond. Scott Frost and company kicked off that cycle with a Junior Day over the weekend. Hosting most than a dozen prospects, the reviews have been rolling in and it appears that the coaching staff did a heck of a job selling what the program has to offer.

High school teammates take in Nebraska football

Lawaun Powell is a 3-star wide receiver out of East Saint Louis who took in the sights at Junior day with the Huskers alongside teammate Jaylen Reed. Reed, also a wide receiver for his school is a member of the 2021 class, so the Cornhuskers managed to lay down the foundation for the next cycle as well.

Miko Maessner

While some of the prospects came from far and wide to see the Nebraska football team up close, other recruits didn't have to travel far at all. Running back Miko Maessner headed to Lincoln from Kearney, Nebraska without an official offer but it feels like one could be coming relatively soon.

Travion Ford

Like Jaylen Reed, Travion Ford is a member of the 2021 class that the Husker coaching staff is laying a foundation for future recruiting cycles. Ford is shaping up to be one of the most sought after players in his class.

The defensive end already has offers from Alabama, Iowa and LSU as well as others. The Cornhuskers will be looking to pull a Noa Pola-Gates with Ford when they try to snag him away from Alabama.

Arlen Harris

Speaking of paving the way for future classes, the Huskers also hosted Arlen Harris, an athlete from Missouri who already has five offers despite the fact that he's in the 2022 recruiting class. This particular prospect is one that the Huskers and Iowa Hawkeyes are going head to head for.

Jaydon Wannstedt

Jaydon Wannstedt is a defensive tackle that is a bit under the radar for now, but he should be getting more attention as we get closer to the 2022 class's signing day. Hailing from Saint Peter's Missouri, it's pretty clear the Nebraska football team is wanting to make sure they are locking down neighboring states.

Gabriel Rubio

One of the biggest recruits to take in the sights in Lincoln this weekend was 2021 defensive line prospect Gabriel Rubio.

Rubio visited the Huskers with several of his teammates, including Wannstedt as the Cornhuskers are looking at Lutheran of St. Charles County as a kind of pipeline to the top talent in the "Show Me State." If they can grab some of the players that came to see Junior Day, the Nebraska football team could have the region locked up.
