Nebraska football had a major visit weekend this past weekend, with several top recruits making their way out to Lincoln. One of the recruits that had a good review of Nebraska was wide receiver Malachi Coleman.
I don’t need to go into detail about him, because all of you know what he brings to the table. Nebraska is putting Mickey Joseph to the task of recruiting Coleman, and he has been a sought-after recruit. He was in Lincoln on Saturday, with Nebraska football still riding high off of their commitment from Jaiden Doss on Friday night.
Nebraska had fellow in-state Husker Ernest Hausmann paired with Coleman, a smart move when you consider the Nebraska connection. Coleman also spent time with wide receiver Omarion Miller, also a Joseph recruit. Given that Miller has previous background with Joseph, he probably was able to tell Coleman what he likes about the coach.
From my perspective, all I wanted was Nebraska to put together a strong showing this weekend. Coleman is being sought after by many high-profile programs . I figured this weekend would be used in order to keep Nebraska in Coleman’s mind when it comes to recruiting. It sounds like they were able to accomplish that, and it sounds like they were also able to really impress him.
Coleman really enjoyed his visit, and he was able to figure out where he would potentially fit in a Nebraska football offense, according to a report from Mike Schaefer of 247Sports.
“I’m not going to lie, Nebraska knocked it out of the park,” Coleman said. “That was my favorite visit by far.
“They showed me exactly how they’re going to use me, they pulled up film and showed a bunch of different plays on how they were going to use me. They showed me love like no other.”
Credit goes to Nebraska for providing Coleman with a clear blueprint on how they were going to use him. I imagine that went a long way for the wide receiver. They needed to have an all-encompassing visit, from how they were going to use them in a game to connecting with big-time recruits. It sounds like they did their job. They needed to come out swinging for this visit, and they did that.
Whether or not this moves the needle in Nebraska’s favor remains the question. However, this certainly bodes well in regards to where they stand with Coleman. It doesn’t sound like Nebraska football is losing ground, and that’s always a positive thing, especially in today’s day and age of recruiting.
