Noa Pola-Gates has had Nebraska as a finalist for a while now.

With his commitment coming up soon, many are starting to consider the Huskers the favorite for the blue-chip safety.

Pola-Gates is set to announce his decision on Saturday at the Polynesian Bowl.

247Sports has the four-star Pola-Gates ranked No. 160 in the country overall.

He's the third-ranked player out of Arizona in the class of 2019, and No. 19 among cornerbacks, though it sounds like he'll primarily play safety at the next level.

Nebraska, Arizona State, and USC are the finalists for his commitment. He is among the top targets left on the board for Scott Frost and his staff.

Back in December, Frost made that message clear, by bringing his entire staff to visit Pola-Gates in Arizona.

Now, 86-percent of predictions at 247Sports' crystal ball have Noa Pola-Gates heading to Nebraska.

That number is even up from the 81-percent that it was at this time yesterday, when the site's Mike Schaefer gave an update on the talented defensive back.

Defensive back Noa Pola-Gates is one of the nation’s most coveted players that remains unsigned. The defender is coming off a terrific performance during the week at the All-American Bowl and he’s set to announce a decision between Arizona State, Nebraska and USC on Saturday night at the Polynesian Bowl, which will be televised by CBS Sports Network.

Pola-Gates is trending heavily toward Nebraska on the 247Sports Crystal Ball after spending most of the year as a heavy Alabama lean. The Huskers now hold 81 percent of the predictions, with Alabama at 10 percent and USC holding another 5 percent. There’s also one undecided prediction.

Last week, Pola-Gates told the recruiting site that Nebraska's fan base sets it apart from other schools recruiting him.

If he winds up choosing the Huskers, Nebraska fans will definitely use that quote as a feather in their cap.
