Recruiting: Updates on Miles, Knevel
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska’s football team might be losing one recent commit from its 2013 class and gaining another — if a Husker pledge’s Twitter feed is accurate.

Brantford, Ont., offensive tackle David Knevel had NU in his final three along with Alabama and West Virginia. According 2013 commit Josh Banderas’ Twitter feed, the 6-foot-9, 285-pound Knevel picked the Huskers. He’s supposed to announce his decision soon. He took a visit to Alabama last week and got an offer in the process.

In other recruiting news, Canton (Ohio) McKinley defensive end Antoine Miles said via text Wednesday night that he still considers himself committed to the Huskers, but is now “very open” to other schools after graduate assistant Vince Marrow left Nebraska Wednesday for a full-time assistant job at Kentucky.

Marrow offered Miles on Dec. 7, and Miles accepted the offer on the spot, planning to make his official visit to NU’s campus Dec. 14. That visit has now been canceled, Miles confirmed. No other Nebraska coaches have contacted Miles as of Wednesday night, which may mean that the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder doesn’t have a commitable offer to the school.
