LINCOLN – Nebraska’s football coaches hit the recruiting trail Monday to lock in official visits for the next three weeks and follow up with a prospect who just saw NU with his family.

Prospects’ Twitter profiles pointed the way to Nebraska’s itineraries.

First the hunt for wide receivers: Husker offensive coordinator and receivers coach Troy Walters made a swing through California to visit several propects, including Lancaster Paraclete’s Andre Hunt, Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda’s Geordon Porter and Calasbasas’ Nikko Hall, who will visit Nebraska on Feb. 2. Hunt will also visit on Feb. 2, and Porter has yet to set an official visit date.

All three receivers are consensus three-star prospects according to the 247Sports composite service. Hall has official visits set for Tennessee (Jan. 19) and Illinois (Jan. 26). Hunt has official visits set up for San Diego State (Jan. 19) and Oregon State (Jan. 26). Porter has already taken four of his visits, including one to Tennessee last week.

Also in California, quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco had an in-home visit with Quartz Hill athlete Matthew Tago, who canceled his Jan. 12 official visit but told The World-Herald he expected to reschedule it.

In Florida, Husker running backs coach Ryan Held visited Rockledge four-star athlete Jashaun Corbin, who is scheduled to officially visit Nebraska on Friday. Corbin decommitted from Florida State on Dec. 4 and received a glut of scholarship offers after; he is also scheduled to visit Texas A&M, which hired FSU’s former coach, Jimbo Fisher.

Offensive line coach Greg Austin visited Detroit East English Village Prep offensive lineman Tyrone Sampson. The consensus four-star prospect is scheduled to visit Feb. 2. Austin and tight ends coach Sean Beckton then visited Atlanta Chamblee Charter offensive lineman Hamilton Hall, a consensus three-star who is scheduled to visit Louisville on Friday, Mississippi on Jan. 26 and Nebraska on Feb. 2.

As for head coach Scott Frost, he, defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and defensive line coach Mike Dawson all conducted an in-school visit with Avon (Connecticut) Old Farms defensive end Casey Rogers, according to HuskerOnline. Rogers is set to take another visit to Vanderbilt. Rogers, whose father, Lelan, is a Syracuse lacrosse assistant, attends a prep school, so the Huskers coaches had to visit there.

Another previous visitor, Mansfield (Texas) safety Cam’ron Jones, released his top five — Nebraska, Baylor, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Utah — and his commitment date, which will be Jan. 27.
