There is been a ton of news this weekend in regards to visitors Nebraska football hosted. Thankfully, Nebraska football was able to land a commitment earlier this evening. Now, there could be some more good news on the way.
247Sports put in three more Crystal Balls for three-star running back Emmett Johnson. Johnson received an offer from Nebraska football Saturday night. Later that evening, three crystal balls were put in for Johnson to head to Nebraska.
Michael Bruntz and Mike Schaefer both put in a medium conference Crystal Ball. Allen Trieu put in a high confidence Crystal Ball with a score of eight. This is certainly noteworthy, because the Crystal Ball predictions are usually very accurate.
To me, this means that we could potentially see a commitment from Johnson this week. The reason I think this is because all of the processes of recruiting are lining up. Johnson received an offer from Nebraska football on Saturday. The Crystal Balls were put in shortly thereafter. I could see a situation where Nebraska football could land Johnson this week.
What could he bring to the table?
He was one of the top running backs in the state of Minnesota, and for good reason. He is an explosive running back who is not afraid to hit holes and is able to turn on the jets once he hits the open field. I really like the fact that there is no hesitation in his game. If he sees an opening, he will immediately attack it.
I really think that his style would be able to fit very well on this Nebraska football offense. So far, they have recruited running backs who run hard and run physically. There is definitely a style of play that Nebraska wants their running backs to have. Johnson would definitely be able to bring it to the table.
I’ll be interested to see exactly when Johnson commits to Nebraska if he does. It is certainly not a certainty. However, all the proverbial stars are aligning up that make me think he will do so.
