Recruiting: One announcement a day to finish


Three days to go. And each of those days ahead has a big announcement involving a four-star prospect who is a Husker target.

We'll keep alert for any surprises -- like Omaha South's Noah Fant, committed to Iowa, but you never know in recruiting, right? And sometimes there is a name in the 11th hour that pops up you just flat didn't know about.

But here's what we do know:

>>> On Monday, wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick (Waterford, Michigan) will announce his school.

A lot of people like Nebraska's chances, though he just visited Louisville this weekend. Other finalists include Arizona and Indiana. His pick is expected in the early afternoon.

>>> On Tuesday, cornerback Lamar Jackson makes his choice public. He's already made a decision, but a video from Bleacher Report will make it known to everybody.

Besides Nebraska, Arizona and Arizona State are believed to be the finalists for the recruit from Elk Grove, California.

All signs point to good news for the Huskers here, which anybody who has watched the 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect's highlights knows would be monumental for this recruiting class.

>>> On Wednesday, athlete Isaiah Simmons will give Husker fans a little signing day drama. The wide receiver/safety who NU coaches have diligently pursued has received a late rush of interest from both Clemson and Michigan.

The Huskers have spent more hours on him, but Clemson is fresh off a national title game appearance and received the final visit to campus. This one is tough to guess.

>>> From the who-knows-what-to-make-of-it chapter (maybe nothing), two Husker commits who are linebacker/defensive end prospects did make visits to other campuses this weekend.

Pernell Jefferson of New Orleans, fresh off committing to NU last Saturday, stopped by Indiana, while Quayshon Alexander of New Jersey visited in-state school Rutgers.

Nebraska stands at 19 commitments, though you can add one more to the list of players who will take up scholarship spots with Saturday's news that quarterback Tanner Lee is transferring to NU.
