Just two prospects are scheduled to officially visit what may be the Huskers’ biggest home game of the year.

Ricky Walker, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound, three-star defensive tackle from Hampton, Va., is making his first official visit of the year to Lincoln. Walker has offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State, South Carolina and Michigan State, among other schools.

The other visitor is 5-foot-9, 175-pound Miami commit Brandon Powell — a three- or four-star prospect depending on the service. Powell, from Deerfield Beach, Fla., is a running back in high school but could project to a variety of positions in college.
