Nebraska continues its search for a defensive back after safety target Kamren Curl out of Muskogee, Oklahoma, committed to Arkansas Thursday.
Curl had listed Nebraska as one of his finalists leading up to the decision, but there wasn’t a Husker hat on the table when he announced during a ceremony at his high school that he was committing to the Razorbacks. Other hats that were on the table included Baylor, Oklahoma, Ole Miss and TCU.
Curl emerged late in his senior season as a top target of the Huskers. Curl, who was once committed to Texas Tech, took an official visit to Nebraska for the Minnesota game on Nov. 12, only five days after he received his offer from the Huskers.
Brian Stewart was previously his lead recruiter, but Donte Williams took over after Stewart left to become the defensive coordinator at Rice. Williams made an in-home visit with Curl and his family on Jan. 15.
Curl is a consensus three-star recruit ranked as the nation’s No. 42 athlete by the 247Sports composite.
Nebraska will turn its attention to California moving forward in its pursuit of defensive back recruits.
Cornerbacks Deommodore Lenoir and Elijah Blades, a Florida commit, are set to take official visits to Lincoln this weekend. Michael Onyemaobi, who decommitted from Cal this week, has a visit to Nebraska scheduled for the final weekend before national signing day. The Huskers also extended an offer Thursday to Arizona cornerback commit Tony Wallace from Las Vegas.
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
