Bellevue West vs. Lincoln High, 8.30

Bellevue West's Zavier Betts scores a touchdown against Lincoln High on Aug. 30 at Beechner Field. Betts is one of 14 players who have verbally committed to Nebraska in the 2020 class.

Nebraska had several unofficial visitors on campus Saturday, including a few from out of state.

Among them was 6-foot-5 offensive tackle prospect Trey Zuhn (Colorado Springs, Colorado), who is part of the 2021 class. Zuhn's sister Riley is a freshman on the Husker volleyball team.

On Thursday, Zuhn helped pave the way for a 220-yard performance by Fossil Ridge running back Chris Bowerfind.

Linebacker prospect Collin Oliver (Edmond, Oklahoma), a 6-3, 215-pound prospect out of the 2021 class, also made an unofficial visit Saturday. His high school team, Santa Fe, won its season-opener against MacArthur 20-7 on Thursday.

Quinton Conley (Kansas City, Mo.), a 6-5 sophomore wide receiver out of Pembroke Hills, caught seven passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in his team's win against El Dorado Springs on Friday. Less than 15 hours later, he was in Lincoln watching Nebraska-South Alabama.
