Post Spring Game Stock Report

The dust has started to settle from Nebraska's major recruiting weekend for its spring game last weekend.

Head coach Mike Riley and his staff hosted a star-studded group of recruits that was arguably the biggest collection of talent ever assembled for the Red-White game. They came out of the weekend with four total commitments, including three big gets in the 2018 class which catapulted the Huskers into the top 10 in the national rankings and their first commit for the Class of 2019.

The momentum from the spring game is still as strong as ever and more commits could be coming soon. HuskerOnline.com takes a look at where the Big Red are currently sitting with their top visitors in our Post Spring Game Stock Report below.

The commitments

Trending: Solid commit

The Skinny: Bookie got the ball rolling by committing on Friday before the game. As expected, he quickly became the point-man of the class as an invaluable recruiter. He's said NU has a couple of silent commits and to even be looking for another addition today.

The Skinny: Allen was the second public commit from last weekend. A big-time player at a position of need, he's made it clear that he's 100 percent committed and has shut his recruitment down.

The Skinny: Wildeman landed his offer from the Huskers Friday before the spring game. He enjoyed the visit so much that he committed to the Big Red before heading home on Easter Sunday. He's also made it clear that his recruitment is completely over.

The Skinny: The electric two-way player became Nebraska's first commit of the 2019 class following the spring game. He loved everything about his visit and especially likes the fact that at least one of his former Bishop Dunne teammates (DT Damion Daniels) will also be in Lincoln. However, there is a lot of time before he signs and his recruitment will only continue to heat up over the coming months.

The Skinny: Jurgens was the first commit in the class after pulling the trigger close to two years ago. He's been on campus countless times and is very close with the coaching staff. He's still receiving plenty of recruiting attention, but Nebraska has done a good job of continuing to make him a priority.

Trending: Stock up

The Skinny: Following his visit for the spring game Moore said Nebraska was on the top of his list. He has since narrowed his focus down to seven schools, including the Huskers, as his June 18 commitment date draws closer. One has to like NU's chances here given his connection with coach Keith Williams and current teammate Bookie Radley-Hiles.

The Skinny: Getting Hufanga, the top player on Oregon and one of the top overall athletes in the nation, on campus for the spring game opened the door for the Huskers and they took full advantage. He loved everything about his trip, especially the family atmosphere surrounding the program. NU will have plenty of competition as he just landed an offer from Alabama to go along with dozens of others, but his connection with Mike Riley should keep Nebraska in it with him.

The Skinny: This was Avery's second visit to Nebraska since last summer and his latest experience was a special one. He now has two Bishop Dunne teammates heading to Nebraska in signee Damion Daniels and 2019 athlete Marquez Beason. The biggest question might not be if he commits to Nebraska, but if they have the numbers along the defensive line to fit him into the class.

The Skinny: Williams enjoyed his visit so much that it would not come as a surprise to see him join the class sooner rather than later. Initially offered as a receiver, Nebraska is now mainly recruiting him as a cornerback. He's very close with both Keith Williams and Donte Williams on the Huskers' coaching staff as well as NU commits Bookie Radley-Hiles and Manuel Allen.

The Skinny: Nebraska really could not be in a better position than they currently are with Goodrich following his spring game visit. He told HuskerOnline.com that he was ready to commit and that he just needed to talk things over with his family some more before doing so. He's squarely on the "commit watch" list.

The Skinny: Like most recruits, Culpepper needed to experience Nebraska to really get a feel for what the program is all about. His trip last weekend definitely changed his perspective on the Huskers pushing them towards the top of his list. NU has limited space available along the defensive line, but Culpepper is one that the staff is continuing to push hard for.

Trending: Stock down - committed to Washington

The Skinny: Bynum had an unbelievable experience at Nebraska last weekend, but the commitment of Tate Wildeman at the defensive end position likely ended the possibility of him being able to join the class. Thus, Bynum committed to Washington Saturday following a visit for the Huskies' spring game.

The Skinny: Bleich made his way to Lincoln as a Penn State commitment and his experience last weekend led to him parting ways with the Nittany Lions a few days later. The big offensive tackle could very well be Nebraska's next commitment of the class.

The Skinny: Roberts was finally able to make it to Lincoln after not being able to visit with his brother, current Husker linebacker Avery Roberts, for the spring game two years ago or for Avery's official visit. The trip could not have gone better and he says he'll be back for an official visit in the fall.

The Skinny: All indications are that Ryan enjoyed his visit last weekend although he has yet to comment on the visit. The big question is where he's at on Nebraska's wide receiver board as they're in on several great players with extremely limited space.

Trending: Neutral

The Skinny: Much like Sean Ryan, all indications are that Redmond enjoyed a very productive visit to Lincoln last weekend. However, he has not really commented on the visit publicly since last weekend. The Huskers have room for only one outside linebacker in the class which begs the question of where he sits on NU's board at the point in time.

Trending: Solid commit

The Skinny: Mapieu has been committed to Nebraska for close to a year now and could not be more solid with that decision.

The Skinny: Farniok committed to Nebraska the week prior to the Red-White game and is another prospect that could not be more solid with his decision to do so.

The Skinny: Pickering was another recruit that landed an offer from Nebraska just prior to the spring game last weekend. Rated as a five-star prospect by Kohl's Kicking, Pickering loved his visit and it would not come as a surprise to see him commit soon. He did recently land an offer from Vanderbilt which might be something he looks into before finalizing a decision.

The Skinny: Gunnel made his second trip to Lincoln since last December to take in the Red-White game last weekend. The trip went so well that it's safe to say NU is cemented in his top group of schools and might even be sitting at No. 1 at this point in time. He's wanting to see a game in the fall which is another great sign for the Huskers with this top 2019 quarterback.

The Skinny: Williams is one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the 2019 class and getting him on campus for a second time in the last year was big for the Huskers. A great experience last weekend coupled with the fact that he now has two high school teammates committed to NU moved them up his list quite a bit. This will be a big battle for the Huskers, but you have to like where they currently sit with him.

The Skinny: Williams and his father could not say enough about how great their visit to Nebraska went last weekend. Like most visitors, the experience completely exceeded expectations and they plan on making it back to Lincoln "several" more times in the future. Their connection with defensive backs coach Donte Williams is strong and NU's recruitment of a couple other prospects out of Serra, Bryan Addison and Kobe Smith, could also play a factor in Williams' recruitment down the road as well.

The Skinny: Nebraska was the first school to offer Johnson so they already held a special spot with him prior to last weekend. Following the trip, NU is the clear leader here and it would not come as a surprise if he were to make an early commitment to Nebraska sooner rather than later.

The Skinny: Williams had heard good things about the Huskers prior to his unofficial visit last weekend, but everything from the fans to the coaches totally exceeded expectations. Iowa may have been the early program to beat prior to last weekend, but now it Nebraska that might have the early edge.

The Skinny: Nebraska has been right at the top of Williams' list ever since landing an offer following his Friday Night Lights performance last June. He's now been on campus a total of three times already and clearly holds NU in high regard. So much so that they could be tough for any other program to beat.
