Joshuah Moten seemed to enjoy his visit to see what Nebraska football has to offer. Now he has decided he's going to set a new commit date and that bodes well for a Cornhuskers staff that only has four commits in the 2020 class so far. Should the 4-star defensive back select the Huskers on July 2, it could be the beginning of one heck of a run, considering the number of players who seemed to really enjoy the biggest recruiting weekend of the summer.

Nebraska football starting its commitment run?

Moten, out of Fort Washington, Maryland is easily the top cornerback target on the Huskers' list for the 2020 class. While it's been hard to tell just where Scott Frost and company stand in the last few weeks, he did come to Lincoln for the big recruiting barbeque weekend. That was a weekend that seemed to swing quite a few opinions towards the Cornhuskers.

It even led to one commit from another defensive back.

Tamon Lynum, who is a bit of an under the radar target, came to Lincoln without an offer, but once he received one this weekend, he pulled the trigger. Lynum told the Omaha World-Herald that he felt as though he was finally home. He's hardly the first commit to make that comment, especially when it comes to this particular staff. “Everybody gets along and everybody loves each other.

It’s like a big family.” He added.

The Nebraska football team has worked hard over the last few years to generate that exact feeling with recruits they host. It has paid off so well that even kids they recruited a few years ago but couldn't come here right away, instead had to go the JUCO route, still wants to end up in Lincoln. Wide receiver Dominick Watt was in town as well. That level of loyalty has to be one heck of a sales pitch for players like Moten.

Beating out a conference rival

The Cornhuskers are hoping this weekend was the beginning of reversing course on what had been some pretty bad mojo. It wasn't that long ago they lost a former 4-star defensive back in CJ Smith. While Moten isn't going to be sliding right into Smith's roster spot, landing the 4-star prospect would certainly fill a hole in future rosters.

Moten is expected to announce on July 2 and while there isn't a great feel for where he's going, it's important to note this would actually be the second time he's announced a commitment.

Just 10 days ago, the defensive back who is inside the Rivals Top 250, was decommitted from Penn State.

That should make the Huskers landing him that much the sweeter. Since Scott Frost and company first arrived in Lincoln, they've been going toe-to-toe against the Nittany Lions when it comes to recruiting. Landing one fo the best corners in the class, after he decided not to go to Happy Valley would be a heck of a get.
