Mike Schaefer over at Huskers Illustrated did a terrific job of whipping up a weekend preview for recruiting. Here’s a list of the big names rolling into town. Remember: If you think Nebraska has a talent deficit, this is one of those weekends where the team can make it up.
How he fits into Nebraska’s plans: Peat is the biggest name on Nebraska’s list of 2012 targets. The 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive tackle is a 5-star and No.10 in the latest Top247 rankings. Peat is the type of cornerstone tackle coaches dream of having to anchor the line.
Nebraska has several other big linemen on the roster, but starting tackles Marcel Jones and Jermarcus Hardrick are both seniors, leaving a spot open on either end of the line.
It’ll be a reunion of sorts as Andrus reunites with his brother Todd Peat Jr., a defensive tackle for Nebraska.
Who else is interested? In short, every team in the country would like Andrus Peat on its roster, however the big tackle is looking at Florida State, Nebraska, Stanford and USC. This recruiting battle could go down to the wire, but Nebraska is in great position if Andrus decides he wants to join his big brother.
