Nebraska lost to Indiana on Thursday for a cornerback it hosted on an official visit for its canceled game against Akron.
Tiawan Mullen, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound prospect from Coconut Creek, Florida, picked the Hoosiers over the Huskers. Mullen visited IU last weekend. The other finalist was Pittsburgh.
Nebraska remains in the hunt for Decatur (Ga.) South DeKalb corner Jamel Starks and Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton corner Javin Wright. Both visited for the Colorado game last week. According to the 247Sports “Crystal Ball," they’re both leaning toward Nebraska. So was Mullen, though, before Thursday.
The Huskers have a commitment from one defensive back for the 2019 class – Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett safety Quinton Newsome. NU defensive backs coach Travis Fisher said last week he’d like to take as many defensive backs as possible in the class.
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
