Nebraska Football: Toby Johnson and Torii Hunter, Jr. Set to Visit

Nebraska will be entertaining two top prospects in the near future.

Torii Hunter, Jr. is a wide receiver out of Prosper, Texas and Josh Harvey of Nebraska.scout.com will be visiting sometime today.

Hunter is a dual-sport athlete who would like to play both football and baseball during his collegiate career.

Nebraska could do with a good wide receiver and they may or may not be getting one if Hunter was to commit according to some recruiting services.

Rivals ranks Harvey as the 97th best wide receiver in the 2013 class, with Scout ranking him at 50 and ESPN at No. 8.

So depending on what recruiting service you like, he is either below average, average or one of the top ten receivers in the nation: confused?

Scout gives Hunter a good scouting report, praising his hands and route running with his 6'0", 160 lbs frame being his only knock.

But, I read somewhere he is now 6'1" and closer to the 175 lbs. mark as of the last few months.

Mammoth JUCO defensive tackle is also hoping to visit Nebraska.

The 6'5", 310 lbs. Hutchinson Community College product told Rusty Mansell of 247sports.com that Nebraska is one the five official visits he intends to make.

Johnson recently became a 5-star prospect and has other big offers from his native Georgia and other big schools like Miami.

Nebraska was the second team to offer Johnson back in February and the team must be an attractive option for a defensive tackle when you consider the development of Jared Crick,and Ndamukong Suh over the last few years.

Johnson has already unofficially visited Nebraska and is far from decide on his future.

He told Taylor Hamm of 247sports.com that he was leaning towards SEC schools originally and that Tennessee was high on his list, but that he now also lists Nebraska and Oklahoma among his favorites.

Johnson said, "The thing that stood out about Nebraska was their graduation rate, it's 96 percent. They've also sold out their stadium every year since 1962."

He also said he knew Nebraska would allow him to make plays and that he likes defensive line coach Rick Kaczenksi.

Johnson also told Mike Schaefer of 247 sports that he models his game after Ndamukong Suh and that he admired the fans and Bo Pelini after speaking with the head coach.

Getting even one of these players would be big for a coaching staff that needs to try and recruit even better to reach the top level.
