When he returns from his European vacation, 2013 quarterback target Johnny Stanton will take a second unofficial visit to Nebraska — this time with his family. Stanton’s first visit to NU for the Huskers’ final day of their Elite Quarterback academy, when he impressed offensive coordinator Tim Beck enough to earn an offer.
“I want to walk the campus,” Stanton told Huskers Illustrated. ”I wasn’t able to do so last time and I want to meet some of the players.”
A four-star athlete who is one of the finalists in ESPN/Nike’s Elite 11 competition, Stanton has offers from Oregon, Washington, Utah and Oregon State, too. He’s a fast-riser who’s bound to get a long look from UCLA, who may be Nebraska’s top competition here.
But the Huskers are clearly in the race. It was to Stanton’s advantage that he threw for Beck at the camp — Daimion Hobbs, who was also in Lincoln, did not — and impressed in that session.
