Nebraska football extended an offer to former five-star wideout Demond Demas on Monday night and is projected to land him.

Nebraska football needs an influx of playmakers going into next season and the Huskers could be adding one of the most talented JUCO prospects in the country.

Demond Demas was a five-star recruit in the 2020 class that signed with Texas A&M. He was ranked No. 25 overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings, but ran into legal trouble with the Aggies and was dismissed from the team after the 2021 season. Demas caught 15 passes for 235 yards and one touchdown that season.

After his legal issues were resolved — there was a potential assault charge — he landed at Garden City Community College. Some other programs, including Tennessee, have been sniffing around, but Nebraska football made the offer on Monday night.

At 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, Demas would be eligible to play next season for the Huskers and would be part of the 2024 class.

“I talked to all of them,” Demas said to Husker Online. “Coach Rhule, Garret McGuire, and six or seven coaches. I’ve been in communication with Coach Rhule a lot. I also talked with Evan Cooper. I’m just so thankful they made a move on me. Nobody before Nebraska would pull the trigger on me. I am very, very, very thankful for this opportunity.”

Demas has 23 receptions for 269 yards and a touchdown this season for Garden City. He’s also got a 92-yard reception. Soon after the Nebraska football offer, both Bryan Munson and Sean Callahan of Husker Online projected Demas to the Huskers, giving them a 100-percent chance to land his commitment.

We’ll see if any other Power-5 programs offer. But it feels like the Huskers have a strong chance to land the former five-star recruit out of Tomball, Texas, which would bring another talented pass-catcher to the Huskers as part of their 2024 haul.
