Dismuke

Marquel Dismuke is a four-star prospect Huskers signee, and he'll work to get some talented teammates to join him in Lincoln.

When Nebraska's staff officially announced the signing of Marquel Dismuke, they made sure to mention his school — Calabasas.

There's probably a reason for that. They hope the next generation of Calabasas prospects follows him to Lincoln.

The Huskers have three main targets from the powerhouse program in Southern California. Keyshawn Johnson Jr., Darnay Holmes and Tristan Gebbia are all major recruits for NU in 2017, and they're seemingly already in solid shape to eventually get them.

Johnson Jr., whose father was the NFL star of the same name, said earlier this week that he'll be announcing his commitment next month. He has the Huskers in his final five with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and USC. 

One of those schools will land this consensus four-star receiver in March.

Johnson Jr. was on campus recently while Dismuke was on his official visit the weekend of Jan. 22. So too was Holmes, a five-star cornerback.

They've both made multiple visits to Lincoln over the last year, and Holmes also has the Huskers high on his list. 

Gebbia, a four-star pro-style quarterback, wasn't able to make the trip last month with Johnson and Holmes, but he's previously made visits to Nebraska. Earlier this week, he announced his top five, and the Huskers made the cut.

NU was on the list with Ole Miss, Washington, Washington State and West Virginia.

Landing all three of these 2017 prospects would be a huge boost for the future of the Huskers program, and now that Dismuke is in the fold, they're hopeful he can be another big lure for his younger friends.
