It has suddenly turned into a rather interesting recruiting weekend for Nebraska.

The Huskers now have four known recruits expected to be in town, and all have nice offer sheets to their names.

Expected visitors include running back Madre London (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), dual-threat QB/athlete Quinton Flowers (Miami, Fla.), defensive back Joshua Kalu (Houston, Texas) and four-star wide receiver Erik Brown (Fontana, Calif.)

Offers include Michigan State, Illinois, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, Florida State, Boston College, Arkansas State, Kansas, Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, Virginia, Tulane, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Florida, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and Purdue.

It's NU, Michigan State, Illinois, Wisconsin and Mississippi State who are right now considered top candidates.

Offers include Alabama, Cincinnati, Texas, Clemson, West Virgina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Pittsburgh and Marshall.

His coach Antonio Brown told on Friday morning that the 6-foot, 205-pound Flowers is on a plane to Omaha this morning.

"He's a perfect fit for what Nebraska does," Brown said to the recruiting site. "We run the up-tempo, spread style offense. A lot of what I learned is from Rich Rodriguez when I was at West Virginia."

The 6-foot-170-pound Kalu told “I want to learn about their defense and I want to see how they’re coached. I also want to talk to them more in-depth about what they want me to play and if they want me to play as soon as possible."

Kalu also said he was considering visits to Iowa State, Washington State and Wake Forest, though he didn't discount the possibility he could commit to Nebraska on the spot if he liked his visit.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Brown is committed to Washington, but he's also held an offer from Nebraska since the spring.

The receiver is ranked No. 120 among all players in this recruiting class by Rivals. Brown committed to the Huskies in early July, but the fact Nebraska is getting him to campus for a game obviously shows the door is still open.
