Jaylon Redd

Jaylon Redd rushed for 136 yards in Rancho Cucamonga's win against Norco over the weekend.

Nebraska hosted one of its biggest group of recruits for Saturday night's game against Fresno State. It's a list that included a couple of five-star players (offensive lineman Foster Sarell and wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones) and several four-stars.

Here's a look at how they did the night before heading to Lincoln:

Triple threat: The Calabasas (California) crew was at it again. Nebraska quarterback recruit Tristan Gebbia connected with NU wideout prospect Darnay Holmes for a 66-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in the Coyotes' 35-26 win against Salesian.

Gebbia threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for another. Holmes finished with five catches for 149 yards, and NU wideout recruit Keyshawn Johnson Jr. caught six passes for 46 yards and a score.

The Rancho Cucamonga duo: Nebraska hosted a pair of four-star (24/7Sports) cornerback recruits from Rancho Cucamonga (California) — Jaylon Redd and Thomas Graham. Friday, the pair led their team to a 48-20 win against Norco in the Cougars' new $12 million stadium.

Louis Brewster of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin wrote, "Jaylon Redd was the offensive standout for Rancho Cucamonga. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound senior rushed for 136 yards on 21 carries as the home team broke it open in the last half." 

The five-stars: If his recruiting credentials (ranked the nation's top recruit) didn't make him stand out, Sarell's size did.

At 6-6 and 310 pounds, Sarell towered over the other visiting recruits Saturday. The night before, the Husker prospect helped lead Graham-Kapowsin (Washington) to a 69-38 win against South Kitsap.

Sarell is planning visits to Notre Dame and Alabama later this season.

Peoples-Jones helped Cass Tech (Detroit) to a 60-0 thrashing of Detroit CMA. Peoples-Jones had his workload limited, but he did haul in a 22-yard touchdown pass.

Another prospect from Cass Tech, four-star safety Jaylen Kelly-Powell, also was at the Nebraska-Fresno State game.

Four-TD night: NU wideout prospect Jamire Calvin (Los Angeles) caught nine passes for 180 yards and four touchdowns a night before arriving in Lincoln. His team, Cathedral, won 51-7 over Burroughs.
