Expect the unexpected.
You would think the Huskers would begin to learn that, what with Scott Frost and everything that has come since. Thursday afternoon was no different, as a surprise commitment from Ronald Thompkins II rolled in for the Huskers
Thompkins is a running back and wide receiver combo, much like Miles Jones in the current class. He’s electric with the ball in his hands and fits perfectly in the offense.
He is a three-star prospect out of Grayson High School in Georgia. Current Huskers Breon Dixon and Mohamed Barry also attended Grayson.
Thompkins suffered a torn ACL last season, but is supposed to be fully healthy for his senior season.
The Huskers are now up to nine commits in their 2019 class, with three of them coming at running back.
