Marco Domio's offer from the Nebraska football team certainly underlines that Scott Frost and company are still looking hard at the JUCO ranks when it comes to adding to the roster. Domio announced on Twitter on Tuesday night he was the latest Junior College prospect to get an offer from the Huskers.

There had been some who thought the Cornhuskers might have simply been looking at a large number of JUCO prospects when they arrived because they needed to revamp the roster quickly.

As we enter the third recruiting class of Frost and company, it's clear there are some prospects in these Junior College ranks the staff is always going to be looking at, even if there aren't glaring weaknesses at a particular position.

Nebraska football going JUCO hunting

If you listened to defensive backs coach Travis Fisher on Tuesday, it's clear the position coach believes he has plenty of talent among that group.

That hasn't stopped the team from going after Marco Domio just in case he can jump the line when it comes to the depth chart and start for the Nebraska football team his first year on campus. Certainly, in his freshman year at Blinn, Domio looks like someone who could certainly be a contributor for the Cornhuskers.

In 11 games at Blinn, the defensive back registered 21 total tackles. He also had an interception that he returned for 75 yards and a touchdown.

It has become readily apparent that a player that was very much under the radar coming out of high school, is going to be getting his fair share of FBS offers during the 2020 recruiting class, thanks in large part to the way he played during the 2018 season.

Marco Domio about to blow up?

Out of High School, the newest Nebraska football target only had a handful of offers and only one FBS scholarship offer.

Alcorn State, Prairie View A&M and UMASS were the only schools that really came calling. Things are changing quickly for Domio as he's gotten two big time FBS offers in the last few weeks.

The Houston Cougars were the first to offer in this recruiting cycle on February 27. The Huskers were the second on Tuesday. It's a safe bet Nebraska is far from the last team that is going to be wanting to see the defensive back put on the pads for their team.

The question now is whether or not Scott Frost and company are girding their loins for a big battle.

In some ways, Marco Domio could be similar to what we saw in Dylan Jordan. Jordan was a linebacker that was completely under the radar when the Nebraska football team came calling.

Once the Huskers gave him an offer, it created a kind of cascade effect. It will be interesting to see if the same happens with this prospect.
