We start this year's edition of Recruit Watch with Calabraska.

Nebraska quarterback recruit Tristan Gebbia (Calabasas, California) was sharp in the Coyotes' 46-28 win against Agoura on Friday. Gebbia completed 23 of 31 passes for 322 yards and four touchdowns. 

Three of those scoring strikes landed in the hands of five-star recruit Darnay Holmes, who finished with seven catches for 118 yards. NU recruit Keyshawn Johnson Jr., caught three passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.

"I believe Tristan Gebbia and I are the best wide receiver-quarterback combo in the state of California," Holmes told the Los Angeles Daily News.

Holmes, Gebbia and Johnson are visiting Nebraska this weekend for the Fresno State game. Holmes is considering Nebraska.
