Welcome to Friday's recruiting ticker.

Nebraska is expected to host a few visitors this weekend, so you'll start to see some of the staff members make their way back to Lincoln.

The official visitors are expected to include longtime NU verbal commits Ethan Piper (Norfolk Catholic) and Garrett Snodgrass (York), as well as junior college cornerback Tony Wallace (Independence, Kansas) and pass-rusher Jamin Graham (Atalla, Alabama). 

To the updates.

Not surprisingly, it appears head coach Scott Frost is making the most of his travel back toward the Midwest by seeing a pair of priority-type 2020 prospects.

Frost left Houston Friday morning and headed to Lawrence, Kansas. That, of course, is the home of four-star tackle Turner Corcoran.

Frost and offensive line coach Greg Austin were both at Free State High to see Corcoran, a top-100 prospect, this morning, according to teacher and coach Sam Stroh. 

Corcoran is one of the most sought-after prospects in the region, is listed at 6-foot-6 and 280 pounds, and has offers from Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia and many others. He's been a regular on campus in Lincoln, visiting for multiple games this fall as well as spring and summer trips.

Then Frost was expected to be off to South Dakota to see Nash Hutmacher, another four-star lineman in the 2020 class. Due to weather, Frost had to reschedule his visit with Nash, Hutmacher's dad, Joe, told the Journal Star. 

Hutmacher is listed at 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, and is also a talented wrestler.

So, a good chunk of the week spent in SEC territory, but Frost and company are also making sure to see the guys they want that are in the 500-mile radius.

Juco national title game: Nebraska appears to have been well-represented at the junior college national championship game on Thursday night in Pittsburg, Kansas. 

Running backs coach Ryan Held and offensive coordinator Troy Walters saw East Mississippi Community College top Garden City (Kansas) Community College 10-9. 

The Huskers, of course, had a commit playing in the game in Garden city running back Dedrick Mills. Mills rushed 28 times for 70 yards and scored Garden City's lone touchdown in the fourth quarter. 

Walters also had plenty to watch. NU 2018 wide receiver signee Dominick Watt, who did not qualify and ended up in Garden City. He caught one pass for Garden City, which threw the ball only occasionally the entire season and completed only two passes in the title game. 

Another potentially intriguing name that Walters was able to get eyes on: East Mississippi receiver Dontario Drummond, who has caught 21 touchdowns in his two seasons at the school. 

Drummond has offers from Kansas, Colorado State, Toledo and others but does not have a known Nebraska offer yet. NU is familiar with East Mississippi, of course, as they got Mike Williams from there last year. 

Robinson announcing on Dec. 19: Top NU target Ty Robinson is announcing his college decision on National Signing Day at his school, AZCentral.com reported. 

The Huskers will get the last shot with the four-star defensive end, too. Eddy Zubey told the Journal Star earlier this week that Frost and NU had wrapped up the final in-home visit with Robinson before the contact period ends the weekend before signing day. 

Robinson is also considering USC, Alabama and Oregon.
