Reported yesterday by, 2018 five-star quarterback Justin Fields is considering using one of his five official visits to check out Nebraska this fall.

Ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in the country, Fields expects to take all five of his official visits and likely a few others thanks to his central location in his home state of Georgia.

Even if the top recruit commits this summer, Fields stated he would still take visits to several schools this fall.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” he said of the chance to take his visits. “I don’t know when I’m going to commit. I may commit tomorrow, I just don’t know.”

Per’s Nick De La Torre, Fields will likely take officials to Oregon and Nebraska while also unofficially checking out Georgia, FSU and Florida as they are, “a short drive from home.”

If the Huskers were to get the elite quarterback on campus, it would be a massive coup for offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf as the Huskers were thought to be passing on taking a quarterback in the 2018 class.

As many fans know, head coach Mike Riley has proven that anytime the Huskers are able to get a recruit on campus their chances of getting a commitment go up exponentially.

Make sure to keep a close eye on Fields as the Huskers appear to be drawing his interest and moving into the mix for this top signal-caller’s recruitment.
