The early signing period took some of the drama out of yesterday's national signing day but Nebraska coach Scott Frost put the finishing touches on an initial recruiting class that many have ranked in the top 25.
Between scholarship players and walk-ons more than 40 new players will be joining the program. Among the 24 that signed yesterday included outside linebacker David Alston, running back Greg Bell, offensive tackle Willie Canty, cornerback Braxton Clark, offensive lineman Will Farniok, linebacker Will Honas, wide receiver Andre Hunt, safety Cam’ron Jones, athlete Miles Jones, tight end Cameron Jurgens, tight end/wide receiver Katerian Legrone, quarterback Adrian Martinez, wide receiver Justin McGriff, kicker Barret Pickering, defensive end Casey Rogers, safety C.J. Smith, outside linebacker Caleb Tannor, cornerback Cam Taylor, running back Maurice Washington, wide receiver Dominick Watt, defensive end Tate Wildeman, safety Deontai Williams, wide receiver Mike Williams, and wide receiver Jaron Woodyard. One of the goal was building depth at receiver and defensive back.
