Nebraska football has a plethora of visitors coming in for Saturday’s spring game. This appears to be the program’s biggest recruiting push so far, and several names are expected to be there. Among those names are a Georgia trio as noted in a report from Brian Christopherson of 247Sports

Wide receiver Barry Jackson Jr, edge rusher Adonjiah Green, and four-star defensive back Kayln Lee will be at the spring game. all three are from Cedar Grove High School. Current Nebraska football wide receiver Janiran Bonner went to high school there as well.

Jackson Junior is not ranked in either the 247Sports Composite or regular rankings. He has five offers, with Nebraska and Louisville being the two biggest ones.

Green has been committed to Louisville since December 24. He is a three-star recruit and as the 35th overall player in the state of Georgia per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Lee is a four-star corner. He is the 22nd overall corner in the country, and the 15th overall player in his class from the state of Georgia per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. he has offers from the likes of Auburn, Cincinnati, Georgia, Oregon, Texas, and USC

All three recruits are from the 2023 class.

Jackson is a playmaking receiver. He does well at getting out of his break, and running his routes. His specialty is running after the catch. In addition, he can return kicks. He also played the role of kick returner for Cedar Grove.

Lee measures in at 5-foot-11, 185 pounds. His specialty is speed, and that helps him in terms of coverage. He is able to keep up with outside wide receivers, this helps him compensate for his lack of height. In addition, he is not afraid to come down during the play and make a tackle. Speed helps him in this situation as well.

The 2023 Nebraska football recruiting class checks in at 17th nationally and sixth overall in the Big Ten per the 247Sports Team Rankings. This could be a big weekend for the class with several visitors coming to Lincoln.

It will be intriguing to see what comes of these visits. This group in particular could help continue the Nebraska football pipeline in the state of Georgia.
