National Signing Day: Frost wraps up first recruiting class

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. – Scott Frost and his staff wrapped up their first class of recruits at Nebraska on National Signing Day Wednesday.

Nebraska signed 12 athletes in the early signing period, and on Wednesday, the Huskers rounded out the first recruiting class of the Scott Frost era.

Here are the Husker commits who have signed so far:

DE Caleb Tannor
Mountain View
Tannor originally committed to Georgia in July but decommitted in November. The Huskers officially offered at the end of December and got him on campus in January, but Tannor was long projected to go to one of the big southeast schools. Florida State, Florida, Auburn and Alabama were considered front-runners, with several other schools offering the edge rusher. The Huskers will hope Tannor can provide some pressure off the edge that Nebraska has been missing the past few years.

RB Maurice Washington
Mountain View
Washington is regarded as a top 10 running back in the country, so getting him is a pretty big get for Frost and company. Washington didn't make it to campus in Lincoln until this past weekend. Arizona State was considered the likely landing spot if Washington didn't choose the Huskers, an Clemson, Ohio State and nearly every other Power 5 school had offers out to Washington.-->

WR Andre Hunt
Mountain View
Hunt was someone Frost and his staff recruited after being hired at Nebraska. He decommitted from USC in December and had got his Nebraska offer on Christmas Eve. Hunt visited Lincoln just this past weekend and had strong interest from Oregon State and San Diego State after decommitting from USC.-->

OT Willie Canty
Mountain View
Frost and his staff offered Canty last April while at UCF and drew his interest after moving to Nebraska. Canty visited Lincoln this past weekend and also had strong interest and an offer from Louisville and others.

ATH Cam Taylor
Mountain View
Taylor decommitted from Missouri in October and had his final visit there just this past weekend, but Frost and the Huskers offered him after the Nebraska hiring became official. Taylor visited the final week of January. Erik Chinander was the lead recruiter for Taylor, so expect to see him line up on the defensive side of the ball.-->

S C.J. Smith
Mountain View
Smith's brother, Tre'Quan, played for Frost and his staff at UCF. C.J. picked the Huskers over Mississippi State, Baylor and others, and had interest from a host of schools after decommitting from Florida, including from programs like Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio State.

DB Cam'ron Jones
Mountain View
Jones is rated as a top 25 player at his position nationally. He had offers from the likes of Ole Miss, Baylor, Oklahoma, UCLA and several others.

WR Dominick Watt
Mountain View
Watt picked the Huskers over several Big Ten schools, including Wisconsin and Michigan State, and others including Florida, Oregon and Louisville to name a few.

ATH Miles Jones
Mountain View
Jones actually visited with Frost and his staff at UCF prior to the start of last season, but ultimately committed to Vanderbilt. After Nebraska hired Frost, Jones received his offer from the Huskers and visited just last month. A few days later, he decommitted from Vanderbilt and after another couple days committed to Frost and the Huskers. Wisconsin and several SEC schools, including Georgia, also had offers out to Jones. Jones played wide receiver in high school but was recruited by Jovan Dewitt, Nebraska's outside linebackers/special teams coach.

DE Casey Rogers
Mountain View
The new Nebraska staff was after Rogers right after being officially hired at NU. Rogers had interest from several big schools and took official visits to Ohio State and Alabama, although never officially drawing offers from them. He did have offers from California, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and several others.

ATH Braxton Clark
Mountain View
Clark committed to Virginia Tech last spring, but decommitted in December. He visited Nebraska in January and committed nine days later. While listed as an athlete, he was recruited by Travis Fisher, Nebraska's defensive backs coach, which may give Husker fans an indication of where he's likely to line up.-->

Honas is already enrolled for the spring semester at Nebraska. He's a JUCO player from Butler County Community College and was ranked as one of the top inside linebackers available in 2018.
