The Nebraska football team has made the cut for one of the best receivers in the country. Quin Bright has announced the teams he'll be focusing on from here.

The 3-star prospect announced on the same day that he cut his list when he will be telling teams where he will be committing. It doesn't appear as though the Huskers are going to have to wait for all that long before they find out whether or not they are able to add yet another receiver to their 2020 recruiting class.

Making the cut

The Nebraska football team is going to have its work cut out in order to lure in Bright, but there is a bit of good news when you take a closer look at his list.

While there are plenty of Power 5 programs on the receiver's cut down the list, none of the schools are among the best of the best.

Alongside the Cornhuskers, Bright announced he's going to be looking at the Arizona Wildcats, the Memphis Tigers, the Missouri Tigers, the Kansas Jayhawks, the Baylor Bears, the Oregon State Beavers and the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

The Big 12 has certainly gotten a lot of love from the 3-star prospect, which makes plenty of sense since he hails from Cedar Hill, Texas.

Interestingly enough, this is the second prospect in the last few weeks that has the Huskers also competing against Memphis.

That should be good news, as the Nebraska football coaching staff certainly knows and understands what the Memphis coaching staff have to offer. When Scott Frost and company were at UCF, they and Memphis had quite the rivalry.

With one receiver already committed to the Huskers in the 2020 class, it's a safe bet the Husker coaching staff will attempt to use the fact that Quin Bright could be joining a heck of a unit as one of their big sales pitches.

By the numbers

Bright isn't among the highest ranked players in the class by any stretch, but it's pretty clear that he's gaining plenty of attention from Power 5 programs.

The Nebraska football target is the 64th best athlete in the class and is only the 108th best player in the state of Texas for the 2020 class.

Despite that, he's already got 18 total offers, hence the need to cut down to eight schools. He's wanting to make sure that with that many schools coming after him, he finds a way to focus on the schools that he has the most interest in.

Bright certainly has the kind of speed that would play at Nebraska. He recently ran a 4.5-forty and a 4.32 shuttle. He's also got a nice vertical leap, at 32.70 most recently. Not only is a heck of a football player, but he's a heck of a track athlete. Bright has been quite successful in the 4x100 and 4x200.

In his high school career so far, Quin Bright has been a threat through the air and on the ground.

In 2018, he ran for 362 yards and six touchdowns. He also caught 30 passes for 393 yards and five more TDs. While he's not as good as someone like Wandale Robinson (just yet) when he announces his school on May 22, it's clear the Nebraska football coaches would like him to call their name.
