A look at targets for the February Signing Period
Good morning advocates and detractors of Husker football! As Fearless Leader Scott Frost navigates his way through the dead period while preparing UCF for a bowl victory against Auburn, let’s take a look at the remaining positions of need and potential targets within them. The early signing period went a long ways towards addressing critical shortfalls of position and talent. Which areas of need are remaining and who are the top candidates to address them?
It is interesting how much different the frames of pro-style skill players are versus spread players. Coach Riley recruited small receivers and big backs; Coach Frost has turned this 180 degrees. Three receivers have signed with the Huskers thus far; big-bodied pass catchers Katerian Legrone and Justin McGriff, along with JUCO speedster Jaron Woodyard. The staff is still looking for another receiver, possibly two. The targets receiving the most attention are Tommy Bush, Antoine Green, and Geordon Porter. Bush would probably be the home run of this group, but is being hotly pursued by many top schools. Offers went out over Christmas to Penn State legacy Solomon Enis, John Jackson III, and Utah commit Delon Hurt.
