In unsurprising news, Michigan\’s Greg Mattison was in Omaha this morning to meet with and offer 2015 Cornhuskers defensive end commit Daishon Neal.

Neal is the 3rd Nebraska commit that Harbaugh and company have targeted and offered since taking over and, like Reuben Jones and Matt Snyder, look to have a real shot at flipping (Jones committed to Michigan over the weekend). And if they get him on campus for an official visit this weekend, which is likely to happen, the chances of a flip increase dramatically, as well as the new found hatred towards Harbaugh from corn country.
As for his game, Neal is a 6\’7\’\’ 250lb pass rusher with a non-stop motor and very aggressive playing style. His size and athleticism jumps off the screen while watching his film, and is likely what caught the eye of the staff. If he can put on some more muscle, he could turn into a star under Durkin and Mattison.
Check out his highlights.
