Nebraska will host a second official visitor this weekend in running back Marvin Scott III of Port Orange, Florida, a source told The World-Herald on Friday.

The 5-foot-9, 200-pound Scott is a consensus three-star prospect who has taken an official visit to Georgia Tech and an unofficial visit to Florida State. Both schools have offered Scott a scholarship.

So have the Huskers, who could add one or two running backs for their 2020 recruiting class. Although NU doesn’t have any scholarship senior running backs, the back who may carry the biggest load in 2019, Dedrick Mills, is a junior.

Nebraska is also hosting outside linebacker Blaise Gunnerson this weekend. Gunnerson, from Carroll Kuemper in Iowa, has a final two of Nebraska and Iowa State.
