Time spent on the Big Board is in italics
1.) OT Andrus Peat (Tempe, AZ): Peat's official visit to Nebraska is only a few weeks away. Florida State appears to remain the primary opposition for the Cornhuskers in this battle, but Stanford looks to be making a push. – 16 weeks
2.) ATH Devin Fuller (Old Tappan, NJ): Fuller has been battling a leg injury, but has still been performing well. Things appear to be on auto-pilot right now and barring some unforeseen major event that shakes things up, Fuller’s visit to see Nebraska take on Ohio State gives the Huskers ample ammunition to lock up a commit from one of the nation’s best prospects. – 16 weeks
3.) CB Brandon Beaver (Compton, CA): Beaver scored a crucial touchdown last week leading his team to victory. Much like Fuller, it appears that he’s focused on his season and that his trip to see the Cornhuskers battle the Buckeyes will provide a much better look at his intentions. – 9 weeks
4.) S Jordan Diggs (Cape Coral, FL): Diggs makes his second trip to Lincoln in five weeks with an official trip to see Nebraska play Ohio State. There’s a lot of love going back and forth between Diggs and the Cornhuskers. The last time this sort of communication went both ways, Nebraska landed quarterback Tommy Armstrong. – 9 weeks
5.) CB Tyreece Jiles (Cape Coral, FL): Jiles still hasn’t officially locked in a firm commitment to be at the Ohio State/Nebraska game. At this point in the process, one has to wonder if Nebraska’s not looking elsewhere with his hesitation. – 6 weeks
6.) DT Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville, Illinois): Like several other prospects, Big Vince has been quiet. It has to be disheartening for Nebraska’s staff that he hasn’t set a visit date yet. A trip to see the Cornhuskers take on Michigan State is possible, but Northwestern or Iowa appears more likely. – 6 weeks
7.) DE Jonathan Bullard (Shelby, NC): Bullard’s one of the best defensive prospects in the country, he’s been to Florida and South Carolina already and apparently loved both visits. Clearly, there’s no pressure on Nebraska to wow him during his October 8 trip.
If the Cornhuskers have any main competition, it’d have to be the Gamecocks. Spurrier’s work at South Carolina coupled with the proximity to home may be the difference. Be glad that he’s coming to see Nebraska take on Ohio State, because he may not take all five official visits. – 8 weeks
8.) LB Quanzell Lambert (Sicklerville, NJ): Lambert has all five official visits set: Alabama, Iowa, Northwestern, Oklahoma and Nebraska. Not only could he come in and make an immediate impact for Nebraska, but the Cornhuskers can point to recent success at the position. Nebraska linebacker commit Michael Rose also plans to be in attendance and in Lambert’s ear. – 5 weeks
*NEW* 9. WR/ATH Alonzo Moore (Winnfield, Louisiana): At one point, Nebraska was after Hialeah, Florida's Ghierry Vanderkuyp pretty heavily. That relationship appears to have fizzled, but another one’s heating up between the Cornhuskers and the talented Alonzo Moore. 
He’s been to Lincoln a number of times. He participated in a camp during which he showed skills as a wide receiver, defensive back and even at quarterback. Moore was in town last weekend to watch Nebraska pull away from the Huskies and was very impressed. It’s looking like he could be commit No. 8.
10. OT Evan Goodman (Lakeland, FL): Nebraska’s still in the conversation for Goodman’s services along with Arizona State (to whom he’s currently committed), Auburn and Florida State. Whomever picks Goodman up will be getting a bargain as the big man from Florida will be graduating early and can enroll come January. – 3 weeks
Dropped out: Tommy Armstrong (Committed to Nebraska)
