There’s also a chance that Nebraska can add to it ahead of National Signing Day in February.A large chunk of the Nebraska football recruiting class is expected to enroll early for the school’s spring semester.That will give those players a leg up, as they can get started with class and participate in spring football.According to the Omaha World-Herald, seven future Nebraska players are expected to be early enrollees.The list includes half of the class’ four-star talents: linebacker Nick Henrich, quarterback Luke McCaffrey, and running back Wandale Robinson.At least seven Nebraska signees in the 2019 cycle are expected to enroll early.Two are defenders: Omaha Burke inside linebacker Nick Henrich and outside linebacker Garrett Nelson of Scottsbluff. Others include tight end Chris Hickman (Burke), quarterback Luke McCaffrey (Littleton, Colorado), receiver Jamie Nance (Blanchard, Oklahoma), running back Wandale Robinson (Frankfort, Kentucky) and Garden City (Kan.) Community College running back Dedrick Mills.Mills was expected to be an early enrollee, but did not wind up signing with Nebraska last week. He may still do so, but won’t enroll early, barring an unexpected change.The Huskers did land and sign three-star offensive tackle Brant Banks who is a potential early enrollee as well.Nebraska’s 2019 class should be a very strong one for Frost, as he and his staff look to build on the momentum created late this season after a rough start.[Omaha World-Herald]last_img read more

Sri Lanka aim to bounce back against Afghanistan

first_imgCardiff (Wales): Sri Lanka, who were comprehensively beaten by New Zealand in their opening game, will look to come out with a much improved performance when they take on dark horses Afghanistan in the ongoing World Cup at the Cardiff Wales Stadium here on Tuesday. Sri Lanka did not have the ideal start to their World Cup campaign as they lost by 10 wickets to the Black Caps on June 1. None of their batsmen — apart from skipper Dimuth Karunaratne who remained unbeaten at 52 — could stand against the hostile bowling from the Kiwi pacers and were bundled out for 136. The bowlers also failed to come up with an inspiring performance and proved ineffective as New Zealand chased down the target inside 16 overs. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach ArunKarunaratne’s men need to pull up their socks and improve in all the three departments if they want to beat Afghanistan, who have a well-rounded bowling attack. Afghanistan, despite being comprehensively beaten by Australia in their opening game, will back themselves to bounce back against a demoralised Lankan team. However, in order to do that, their openers need to score runs and make sure they set a platform for the lower order, which performed reasonably well against the likes of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins in Bristol. In Rashid Khan, they not only have a world-class spinner but also a decent batsman who can score big on his day. And they would also be gaining confidence with the performance of fast bowler Hamid Hasan, who produced a fast, disciplined opening spell against the mighty Aussies.last_img read more
