With the early signing period opening on December 19, it is crunch time for college football recruiting. The Nebraska football staff has been working a ton, especially without a bowl game to prepare for, and four-star defensive end Lloyd Summerall is a major target.
Summerall is a Lakeland, Fla. native, and is thought to be leaning toward the local power programs in the state.
247Sports‘ crystal ball has the Florida Gators with 94-percent of the votes, with Florida State capturing the remainder.
Scott Frost thinks Nebraska football can make a late push for Lloyd Summerall, and brought his entire staff to recruit him.
The Lakeland football program tweeted about the visit on Tuesday.
Thanks to @coach_frost and the ENTIRE STAFF from Nebraska for stopping by to check out our guys and our program AND TELL US CONGRATS!! 🌽⚓️🏆⚓️🌽#NAUGHTS #HUSKERS @HuskerFBNation pic.twitter.com/fOi1kh33X8

Summerall visited Nebraska during the season, and got to see the Huskers beat Michigan State on senior day. He got to see snow for the first time, and called the trip a “perfect 10.”
From Rivals, after the visit:
Asked to sum up his visit to Nebraska and to give it a rating, Summerall concluded:
“It was a perfect 10!” Summerall said emphatically. “Nah, it’s not the case that I am for sure going to end up [at Florida our Miami]. It’s between me and God. No one really knows where I will go, but on December 19 everyone will find out. Not this week, but next week Nebraska will probably be coming by for an in-home visit.”
Summerall is the No. 237 player in the class of 2019. 247 ranks him No. 15 among weak-side defensive ends, and No. 36 in Florida.
Pulling him out of the Sunshine State won’t be easy, but if Frost didn’t think there was a chance, he wouldn’t be pulling out all the stops like this.
