Bellevue West vs. Lincoln High, 8.30

Bellevue West's Zavier Betts (15) scores a touchdown against Lincoln High on Aug. 30 at Beechner Field.

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.
