Nebraska had 2018 offensive tackle Chris Bleich high on its list of targets, but the 6-foot-6, 305-pounder — who visited for NU's spring game — committed Monday night to UCLA via Twitter. 

Bleich, from Plymouth (Pennsylvania) Wyoming Valley, had been a heavy favorite to commit to Nebraska, in part because he spent a year at IMG Academy with current Husker Broc Bando. Bleich was among NU's top priorities at tackle. 

Another top target is Brooklyn ASA College tackle Badara Traore, ranked among the top ten junior college prospects in the 2018 class. Traore announced his top seven school via Twitter on Monday afternoon, and Nebraska was among them.
