Recruiting news for Nebraska on Sunday started with 4-star wide receiver Joshua Moore de-committing. From there, though, things would start looking up.

Roughly three hours after landing the first commit of the Scott Frost era in 4-star safety C.J. Smith, the Huskers picked up their second commitment of the day: 3-star wide receiver Jaron Woodyard, from Arizona Western Community College. An official visit to Nebraska over the weekend preceded the commitment announcement Sunday night.

“Most of all, I would like to thank coach Frost & [offensive coordinator Troy] Walters for giving me the opportunity,” Woodyard wrote in a post on Twitter.

Woodyard is a speedy wide receiver who is originally from Bethesda, Md. According to the 247Sports composite, Woodyard was the No. 4 wide receiver from the JUCO ranks in this class. He is 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds.

Running backs coach Ryan Held visited with Woodyard at Arizona Western earlier in the week, when they set up the official visit dates. Things clearly moved quickly from there. Woodyard’s familiarity with the staff from there time at UCF, and vice versa, definitely played a key role in landing the commitment within a week of extending the offer.

The commitment is timely and significant due to the loss of Moore, a highly-ranked receiver, from the class. Additionally, Nebraska is trending away from hanging onto the commitment of 4-star receiver Cameron Brown.

Woodyard took his official visit alongside Arizona Western teammate Greg Bell, a 3-star running back the new coaching staff has also targeted.
