A pair of four-star recruits, along with a very large 15-year-old prospect, were among those in attendance at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

Among them was linebacker Jalen Redmond, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect from Midwest City, Oklahoma. Redmond is committed to Oklahoma, but his visit to Nebraska leaves the door open.

Redmond was seen on the sideline before the game, at one point chatting with Nebraska President Hank Bounds.

Four-star defensive back recruit Christian Tutt also made his official visit to Lincoln this weekend. The Thompson, Georgia, native has Nebraska near the top of his list, according to 247 Sports.

Standing at 6-5 and 270 pounds, Hayden Conner looks like he could be part of the 2018 class. In reality, he's a 15-year high school freshman. 

Conner, who already has offers from Nebraska and Miami, attending a football camp in Lincoln this past summer. He's from Katy, Texas.

Omaha Burke junior tight end Chris Hickman also was on an unofficial visit. The 6-6 prospect had offers from Iowa State and Mississippi entering Saturday. Now you can add Nebraska to the list.

Hickman tweeted Saturday that he picked up an offer from the Huskers.

2018 Nebraska recruits Will Farniok (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) and Cameron Jurgens (Beatrice) were among those in attendance, too.
