By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. — Scott Frost and his staff are signing Nebraska's class of 2019 recruits on Wednesday's Early National Signing Day.

The last National Signing Day will be on Feb. 6, when the Huskers will round out the class. However, several recruits are expected to sign with Nebraska on Wednesday.

Here are the Husker commits who have signed so far:

DE Ty Robinson
Robinson is a huge get for Nebraska. The Huskers made a strong push to get Robinson over the past few weeks, and it paid off. In Robinson, the Huskers hope to have a force off the edge that can get to the quarterback and take the defensive pressure up a level. He chose Nebraska over several major programs, including Alabama, Oregon, USC and others.

RB Wandale Robinson
Robinson is a highly rated recruit out of Kentucky, where he was rated as the No. 2 all-purpose running back by 247Sports Composite. Robinson had offers from pretty much every major school, and picked the Huskers over Alabama, Michigan and Ohio State, among others.

OT Bryce Benhart
Benhart was a big-time get for Nebraska, as Frost and his staff try to make the Huskers a big and physical team again, especially in the trenches. Benhart will definitely help that. The 4-star offensive tackle picked Nebraska over the likes of Tennessee, Wisconsin and many others.

OT Jimmy Fritzsche
Fritzsche, who’s listed at 6-foot, 7 inches and 240 pounds, is a great addition for the Huskers, who beat out several other schools, mainly Clemson, for him. While originally a tight end, he recently switched to the offensive line, and Nebraska will keep him there. He chose the Big Red over Connecticut, Clemson and Syracuse, among others.

QB Luke McCaffrey
McCaffrey, who is the younger brother of former Stanford star and current Carolina Panther Christian McCaffrey and the son of three-time Super Bowl champion Ed McCaffrey, committed to Nebraska early in the summer. Listed by 247Sports Composite as a 4-star dual-threat quarterback, McCaffrey picked Nebraska over Michigan and others.

RB Ronald Thompkins
Thompkins gives Nebraska another dynamic weapon on offense. Rated as the No. 6 all-purpose running back by 247Sports Composite, Thompkins turned down LSU, Penn State, Florida State, Alabama and others to come to Nebraska.

DL Brant Banks
Banks is another big addition to the Huskers. Listed by most as an offensive lineman, the Huskers will use Banks along the defensive line. The Texas native picked Nebraska over Baylor, Air Force, Boston College and others.

LB Jackson Hannah
Hannah is rated as a 3 star linebacker by 247Sports Composite, but drew interest from many big-time programs. He chose Nebraska mainly over Alabama, Arkansas, Cal and others.

ATH Jamie Nance
Nance is listed as a 3 star athlete, and was recruiting by Coach Held, which may indicate the Huskers see him as a running back option. However, most see him as a wide receiver, where the Huskers may be able to better utilize his speed. TCU, Baylor, Minnesota and others also had interest in Nance.

TE Chris Hickman
Hickman is another big tight end for the Nebraska offense, and comes from Omaha Burke. Hickman chose the Big Red over Iowa, Indiana, Iowa State and others.

LB Nick Henrich
Henrich, another Husker commit from Omaha Burke, is listed as a top-150 player in the country by 247Sports Composite. The highly regarded linebacker chose Nebraska over Wisconsin, Colorado abd Florida, among others.

ATH Darien Chase
Chase is a 4 star athlete, according to 247Sports Composite. He was recruited by Troy Walters and viewed mostly as a wide receiver. He had other offers from Utah, Oregon, Boise State and others.

RB Rahmir Johnson
Johnson is another talented player for the Huskers at running back. He had interest from Indiana and Boston College, among others.

S Myles Farmer
Farmer is rated as a 3 star safety by 247Sports Composite. He had interest from many other schools, but picked the Huskers primarily over East Carolina and Florida Atlantic.

S Quinton Newsome
Newsome is someone who committed to Nebraska and continued to draw interest from many other big-time programs. The safety chose the Huskers over Alabama, Auburn, Cal, Georgia and many others.

DE Mosai Newsom
Newsom adds some depth along the defensive line for Nebraska. The Iowa native chose Nebraska over Michigan State, Minnesota, Iowa, Northwestern and others.

DE Jamin Graham
Graham is another defensive end who the Huskers hope can get to the quarterback. He had interest from the likes of Louisville, Memphis, Minnesota and others.

LB Garrett Nelson
Nelson helped lead Scottsbluff to the state title game in his senior season, and decided to stay in the state for his collegiate career. Nelson chose the Big Red over South Dakota and South Dakota State.

CB Javin Wright
Wright, listed at 6-foot, 3-inches, is a big bodied defensive back for the Huskers. He also had interest from UCLA, Air Force, Arizona and Arizona State, among others.

ATH Garrett Snodgrass
Snodgrass, another popular local product, is another big in-state commitment for Frost and the Huskers. Listed as a 3 star athlete by 247Sports Composite, Snodgrass could contribute on either side of the ball for the Huskers, but was recruited primarily by Barrett Ruud, and is looked at mainly as a linebacker. He also had interest from South Dakota, South Dakota State and others.

OT Michael Lynn
Lynn is a big offensive lineman for the Huskers. Listed as an offensive tackle, Lynn picked Nebraska over Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State and others.

OT Matthew Anderson
Anderson adds depth along the offensive line for the Huskers. 247Sports Composite lists him as a 3 star offensive tackle. He also had interest from Louisiana, Louisiana Tech and others.
