Still out

Husker recruit Zack Darlington (6-1, 205, QB) missed his second straight game after suffering a concussion in his first game. His team, Apopka (Fla.), routed Altamonte Springs Lake Brantley 53-0 to improve to 2-1.

A closer look

Miami (Fla.) Jackson quarterback Quinton Flowers (6-0, 210) was one of four prospects who took in Nebraska’s 56-13 win against Southern Miss on Saturday. On Aug. 29, he threw for 200 yards and three TDs while running for 132 yards and two more scores in a 38-21 victory against North Miami Beach.

High ranking

Prospect Madre London (6-1, 200, RB) of St. Thomas (Fla.) Aquinas had 15 carries for 99 yards and 2 TDs in 38-3 victory against Miami Northwestern on Aug. 31. St. Thomas Aquinas is ranked as high as No. 5 in the country. Saturday, London watched Nebraska’s victory against Southern Miss from the sideline.

Quick impact

Husker recruit Monte' Harrison (6-2, 185, WR) is getting into a habit of making an early impact.

Harrison scored the first two touchdowns of Lee’s Summit (Mo.) West's opener. Last Friday, Harrison caught a 44-yard touchdown pass to open his team’s scoring in a 42-14 win against Kansas City Park Hill.


Husker recruit Luke Gifford (6-3, 198, S) suffered a concussion in his first game and didn’t play against Lincoln High last Friday. His replacement, Trent Hays, threw four touchdown passes in a 38-0 win.

Still winning

Prospect Skyler Monaghan (5-10, 170, WR) caught seven passes for 85 yards as Millard West topped Millard North 24-14. Monaghan also ran twice for 16 yards.

Up and down

Prospect Josh Kalu (6-2, 180, DB), who visited Nebraska on Saturday, had a 97-yard kickoff return as Alief Taylor (Texas) opened the season Aug. 30 with a 22-9 victory against Houston Bellaire. Kalu and his teammates weren’t so fortunate last week, losing to top-ranked Katy 49-0.

Busy night

Recruit Drew Brown (5-10, 170, K) converted all nine of his extra-point kicks as Southlake Carroll (Texas) routed Midland Lee 63-14 last Friday. Southlake Carroll quarterback Ryan Agnew accounted for 390 yards and seven touchdowns.
