Former four-star wide receiver Dominick Watt has had his eye on Nebraska for a long time. He originally signed with the school in 2018, but was ruled ineligible. After a year in junior college though, it looks like he's on his way back to Lincoln.

Watt announced on Twitter yesterday that he is slated to visit Nebraska this weekend, with a visit to Kentucky also on his schedule. It's not known if he still has a scholarship offer, but does have a former Garden City (Kan.) Community College teammate - Dedrick Mills - currently enrolled at Nebraska.

Coming out of high school in 2018, Watt was the No. 405 overall prospect in the country per 247Sports. He was the No. 69 wide receiver in the country and the No. 72 prospect from the state of Florida.

However, academic issues prevented him from ultimately enrolling at Nebraska.

Last year at Garden City Community College, Watt had 16 receptions for 188 yards in an offense that ran the ball almost exclusively.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Watt will not be the only junior college wide receiver visiting Huskers this weekend.

Per the report, wide receivers Omar Manning and DeShawn Hanika will be joining Watt at Nebraska as well.
