Nebraska's not done trying to add to its already talented 2019 crop of wide receiver recruits. 

The Huskers have Wandale Robinson (Frankfort, Kentucky), Darien Chase (Vancouver, Washington) and Jamie Nance (Blanchard, Oklahoma) signed to National Letters of Intent, with Robinson and Nance already on campus and taking part in winter conditioning as early enrollees. 

But coach Scott Frost in December said the team would be open to adding another young receiver to the 2019 class if the staff felt they could land an impact player. 

It appears two such candidates are visiting during the upcoming weekends. Multiple outlets have reported that four-star pass-catcher Charles Njoku (Wayne, New Jersey) is among a group of four known players visiting this weekend and four-star De'Mariyon Houston (Oklahoma City) confirmed to the Journal Star that he is planning to visit the weekend of Jan. 18. 

Njoku was committed to Missouri until November, but reopened his commitment. The Huskers offered in early December and several others have joined the picture as well. Njoku, listed at 6-foot-5, is a different body type than Nebraska currently has on its roster and he put together a very productive senior campaign for Wayne Hills High by hauling in 1,106 yards (21.3 per catch) and 16 touchdowns in 13 games. 

Njoku is the younger brother of NFL tight end David Njoku and University of Miami receiver Evidence Njoku. 

Houston, meanwhile, was committed to Texas until early December. He visited Minnesota before the early signing date but remains unsigned and is attracting interest from schools around the country. 

Houston is listed at 6-0 and 165 pounds and starred at Millwood High in Oklahoma City. Though he doesn't have the same size as Njoku, he did in June 2017 run the 200 meters in a blazing 21.42 seconds. 

Time will tell if either -- or both -- wind up with the Huskers, but it's clear Nebraska is still trying to add to its stash of offensive weapons before the 2019 recruiting cycle is finished.
