As the Nebraska Cornhuskers retool for the 2019 season, one of head coach Scott Frost’s big goals will be to get more weapons around quarterback Adrian Martinez. To that end, Nebraska will be hosting a pair of highly-touted skill position players in the coming days.
According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Nebraska will be hosting four-star wide receiver Demaryion Houston and three-star running back John Bivens this coming weekend.
Per 247Sports, Houston is the No. 396 prospect in the country, the No. 46 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 5 prospect from the state of Oklahoma.
Houston’s visits so far have been with Minnesota alone with one schedule for Colorado in February. He has not yet received an offer from the Cornhuskers.
Per the report, Houston had verbally committed to playing at Texas back in July, but backed off that pledge in early December.
He was offered by Frost’s staff last spring.

247Sports has Bivens listed as the No. 582 prospect in the country, the No. 36 running back in the country, and the No. 23 prospect from the state of Ohio.
Bivens averaged 10 yards per carry and had 15 touchdowns as a junior in high school.
The Cornhuskers’ current recruiting class is currently ranked No. 21 in the nation, and No. 4 in the Big Ten heading into 2019. 24 players have signed their letters of intent.
