He was hard to miss.
For one, Bryce Benhart was standing front and center on the 50-yard line for much of Nebraska's pregame warmups Saturday at Memorial Stadium. A kid checking in at 6-foot-9 and 305 pounds — that will stand out, too.
Believed to be the Huskers' top target on the 2019 recruiting board, Benhart made his second visit to Lincoln this weekend. He's ranked by 247Sports as a four-star offensive tackle, and his high school coach said he's the best lineman to ever come out of Lakeville North (Minnesota) High School.
Benhart used his official visit for the Akron game. He was on an unofficial visit Saturday, wearing a No. 68 red hoodie.
Benhart, ranked as the nation's No. 20 tackle by 247Sports, has offers from Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee and the home-state Minnesota Gophers.
Benhart was not the only marquee Husker target in town this weekend. Arizona prep standout Noa Pola-Gates also was in Lincoln. He's a four-star cornerback who has offers from Alabama, Penn State, Texas and USC, among others.
Jamie Nance, an athlete recruit from Blanchard, Oklahoma, who is committed to Nebraska, made his official visit this weekend.
Xavier Watts, a 2020 wide receiver target from Omaha Burke, made an unofficial visit to Saturday's Husker game. Burke teammate Chris Hickman, a 2019 Husker commit, was near his side for much of Saturday's pregame festivities. Watts received offers earlier this week from Wisconsin and Northwestern.
LSW's Jorgensen walking on
Dylan Jorgensen will be donning Husker red in the near future.
The Lincoln Southwest senior kicker/punter announced his intentions just before Saturday's game to walk on at Nebraska.
"I love this place and everything going on here with Nebraska football,” Jorgensen said via Twitter. "I am ready to be a part of the amazing walk-on program and work and give my everything to this team."
Jorgensen is a key special-teams weapon for the Silver Hawks, who enter the Class A state playoffs with a 7-2 record. He has connected for six field goals and he's averaging 35.5 yards per punt.
Jorgensen is the second specialist to announce he's walking on at Nebraska. Lincoln Southeast punter Grant Detlefsen committed to Nebraska in September. Cam Kleinschmidt, of Lincoln High, also is a walk-on recruit in the Huskers' 2019 class.
Lincoln North Star's Luke Reimer, who is committed to South Dakota State, was at Saturday's game.
Huskers offer Elkhorn South sophomore
Teddy Prochazka made an unofficial visit to Lincoln on Saturday. And during the game, the Elkhorn South sophomore offensive tackle announced via Twitter he has an offer from the Huskers.
Prochazka stands at 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, and he'll have plenty of time to add to that frame.
According to 247Sports, Nebraska is the first Power Five school to offer the 2021 prospect.
Omaha Burke receiver receives Nebraska offer
On Saturday, Nebraska offered Omaha Burke junior wide receiver Xavier Watts a scholarship, according to Watt's Twitter account.
The 2020 recruit, according to 247sports, is a three-star prospect. The Huskers are the third Big Ten team to offer Watts in the last week.
Watts announced on Twitter that Wisconsin and Northwestern have also offered him scholarships.
