Nebraska football landed a fourth commitment on Monday, plus key crystal balls for Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall, and more in our Nebraska Cornhuskers news roundup.

It’s been a good couple of days for Nebraska football recruiting and it looks like things could get even better.

On Monday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers continued to build momentum on the recruiting trail with yet another commitment — this time from cornerback Evan Taylor.

Taylor was listed by 247 Sports as a wide receiver. However, the 6-foot-3 athlete is expected to play cornerback or safety for Nebraska football and I’m all for it. He’s ranked 887th overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings and is a really smooth athlete, even if he doesn’t have the fastest 100-meter dash time.

I actually really like his film as a wide receiver too. He did well with contested catches and that makes me believe he’s got good ball skills. He did have four interceptions as a sophomore.

A long corner with ball skills? Sign me up. Taylor is oozing with potential and the fact he could fit well on either side of the ball is impressive to me. I’ve heard some concerns about the number of defensive backs in the class and Taylor would be No. 5, but this is the 3-3-5 — you need versatile athletes everywhere.

Huge crystal ball trends

Nebraska football fans got more good news on Monday as in-state wideout Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall — two priority targets — started trending with expert projections from 247 Sports, On3, and Rivals.

McMorris has been expected. It’s not a huge shock but he tweeted about a big announcement coming. It’s interesting because he and Hall are teammates. They are both expected to take official visits to Nebraska football this weekend. They also play with Nebraska Cornhuskers QB commit Daniel Kaelin.

There were reports that Hall and Nebraska decided to part ways. However, something must have changed. Sean Callahan and others have now projected Hall to Nebraska. The four-star receiver also tweeted something about a big announcement.

Then, late last night, to throw another wrench in the mix, Hall tweeted an offer from Tennessee. He took an unofficial visit there recently and it feels like he’s really wanted an SEC offer.

So I’m not sure if that will change things for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. But there was a lot of positive momentum with both and we’ll see if it leads to commitments or what these announcements might be. Nebraska football is also trending with some other 2024 targets as well.
