Nebraska football could be adding to its 2023 roster on Tuesday as Micah Mazzccua has set a decision date. Here’s the latest.

After a weekend of hosting transfer portal targets, Nebraska football should discover how fruitful those visits were very soon.

Last week, there was some thought that a commitment happened and that it was former Baylor offensive lineman Micah Mazzccua.

Walter Rouse is an offensive tackle from Stanford that also visited and could be the starting left tackle for Nebraska football in 2022. Rouse has also visited Iowa and Oklahoma. Yet, a favorite hasn’t emerged.

There doesn’t seem to be any positive buzz about the Huskers so it’s hard to read but Iowa is the slight leader according to the On3 prediction machine.

As far as Mazzccua, Nebraska football is still the leader. There have been multiple expert projections for the 6-foot-5, 330-pounder who played over 700 snaps last season for the Bears. And the Huskers will find out on Tuesday if they will land the experienced offensive guard.

Mazzccua who also visited Florida and Auburn has announced a decision date for Tuesday night. The Huskers are the favorite (96 percent chance according to the On3 prediction machine) and nothing has changed.

We’ll see if that stays that way but absent a run of expert predictions, Nebraska seems like the choice.

One transfer target off the board for Nebraska

The Huskers also seem poised to land former Virginia wide receiver Billy Kemp. He’s a veteran slot receiver that would give Nebraska another proven option. All of the expert picks are in Nebraska’s favor after his visit.

Yet, there was some bad news on Monday as Malik Hornsby announced his commitment to Texas State. Hornsby got some expert projections for the Huskers and a pledge to Nebraska was imminent. However, it was going to be at wide receiver.

Hornsby is an impressive athlete that was compared to RG3 by 247 sports coming out of high school and he has the kind of speed Nebraska would love to have at wide receiver. Yet, he would be No. 3 on the quarterback depth chart and he decided to commit to Texas State on Monday.

That puts the focus on Kemp for now but I wouldn’t expect Nebraska to stop mining the transfer portal for talent. Hopefully, the Huskers add more Tuesday.
