Nebraska landed Arizona Western College’s Jaron Woodyard, who committed to the Huskers on Sunday. Woodyard, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound three-star prospect, announced his decision Twitter.
Quick takes on what the decision means:
>> A well-built, speed-to-burn JUCO receiver who can play right away. He and current redshirting Husker Jaevon McQuitty are similar players, only Woodyard has more collegiate experience. At 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, Woodyard has decent size and, at least on film, good speed. Coach Scott Frost’s offense looks for guys who can stretch the field.
>> Nebraska’s back in the JUCO recruiting business. The Huskers took a hiatus under former coach Mike Riley. Whether Riley chose not pursue those players, or NU’s academic arm dragged its feet on JUCO guys, doesn’t much matter now. It is interesting that the Huskers are so quickly engaged in JUCO recruiting, but it was a part of recruiting for every coaching administration prior to Riley.
>> Don’t expect it to be the last receiver. NU needs several more for the system Frost wants to run. Joshua Moore already withdrew his pledge and there's no guarantee Cameron Brown will stay in the class, although, if he is smart, he'd stick around. The offense will be a fun rise.
