Huskers land commitment from No. 3 JUCO prospect in 2020 recruiting class
Nebraska has landed another big-time player from the junior college ranks.
Friday, the Huskers received a verbal pledge from 4-star cornerback Nadab Joseph, who will travel to Lincoln after playing at Independence Community College. He’s ranked as the No. 3 overall junior college player in the 2020 recruiting class, giving Scott Frost’s staff two of the top three commits from the JUCO ranks.
The Huskers also landed a pledge from 4-star wide receiver Omar Manning, who was ranked as the No. 2 overall junior college prospect in the 2020 cycle.
Joseph made his announcement with a post on Twitter, saying “Let’s get to work Big Red.”

Joseph held nine offers on the recruiting front, and picked Nebraska over other major programs. Teams like Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, Colorado, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Baylor and Kentucky also showed interest in the 6-foot-2, 195-pound defensive back.
Last season at Independence, Joseph appeared in five games for the Pirates and totaled 8 tackles and a pass break-up.
As a high school prospect, Joseph initially signed with Georgia as a member of the 2018 recruiting class. He was originally the No. 175 overall prospect in that recruiting cycle, with a 4-star ranking and was the No. 18 corner.
Nebraska’s 2020 recruiting class ranks 20th nationally and fourth in the B1G.
