Recruiting: Huskers expecting four visitors

  • 0

It's turning into a busy recruiting weekend for the Huskers, with at least four visitors now expected for this weekend's game with Minnesota.

One of those four is already a Husker commit -- Mirko Jurkovic of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

The other three are intriguing prospects, with two committed to other schools and one a former teammate of current Husker quarterback A.J. Bush.

>>> The latter is Jared Pinkney, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound wide receiver from Norcross, Ga., who just received an offer from the Huskers last week.

NU defensive backs coach Charlton Warren, who knows Georgia well, has been leading the way on Pinkney.

"(Warren) is a cool guy to talk to and they signed (quarterback) AJ Bush last year," Pinkey told "Being able to maybe play with him again is huge. That caught my attention right away."

>>> Another wide receiver planning to visit is Cameron Stewart of Snellville, Ga., who is currently committed to Central Florida.

Stewart has been committed since April but has seemed open to Nebraska's advances in interviews.

"I think that I am happiest with my development from last year," Stewart told "I became that guy that coaches really talked about. I broke three school records. I broke the receiving touchdowns, receiving yards in a game and receiving yards in a career."

>>> The other expected visitor is athlete Brian Cole, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete from Saginaw, Mich., who is currently committed to homestate school Michigan.

Cole's dad has said Nebraska is looking at the four-star recruit as a safety. Cole is a December graduate, and is making an official visits tour of several Big Ten schools, including Ohio State, Wisconsin and Purdue.

Not visiting this week, but worth monitoring, is the recruitment of four-star quarterback Sheriron Jones of Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, Calif.

That's a school that has been good to Nebraska in recent years, with Quincy Enunwa and Eric Martin both coming to Lincoln from there.

Jones is committed to Florida but told he's been from Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck every week.

"Just the history with them and knowing the coaches, they were around me when I was a freshman," Jones told the website. "Just them being with me all four years, we got a real relationship.”

Jones also has some interest in Tennessee and Ole Miss, though the latter hasn't offered him yet.

An Elite 11 finalist, here are his Hudl highlights.
