Nebraska is the latest offer for four-star cornerback Adarius Pickett, who has seen his recruitment pick up after being named the defensive MVP at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles.
Secondary coach Terry Joseph stopped by El Cerrito, Calif., on Thursday to check out Pickett and four-star linebacker Derik Calhoun, who already had an offer from the Huskers, and Pickett was told to call the coach later that night.
He did and that's when the offer came in.

"They came to our school, coach Joseph, he talked with me and D.J. and he told me liked me," Pickett said. "He told me to call him (Thursday night) and I called him and he offered me.
"Nebraska is a great football school, that's a big-time school, they have done well in the Big Ten and that's my second one from that conference so it's something to look at.
"I'm going to see if I can get out to Nebraska and see what's going on out there."
The 6-foot, 185-pound cornerback was spectacular at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles and has seen his recruitment steadily get busier in the weeks following that event.
So far, Pickett has landed offers from Arizona State, Cal, Nebraska, Nevada, Purdue, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Things could pick up even more as the spring evaluation period continues as the El Cerrito standout said many more big-time programs should be stopping by the school in the coming weeks.
"I know there are going to be a lot of colleges coming to our school in about two weeks," Pickett said.
"I know Oregon, Miami and schools like that will be there. It's going to be really interesting in the next few weeks."
Rivals.com rates Pickett as the No. 189 prospect in the 2014 class but after his showing at the Rivals Camp there is a significant chance he could move up in the next re-rankings.
