Nebraska football still in the running for a quarterback with insane numbers.

The quarterback position is one that the Nebraska football team is obviously pretty interested in recruiting in the 2019 class. So far, they haven’t managed to land one.

Despite striking out on a few quarterback prospects this year, the Cornhuskers are still in on one of the best prospects in the class. Jayden Daniels recently talked to Rivals and said he’s still quite interested in seeing what Lincoln has to offer.

Talking to Huskersonline, Daniels laid out that he’s still wanting to find a way to get to Memorial stadium and really see what the Huskers have to offer. “I am trying to visit. I want to meet with coach Mario Verduzco and see how they run their offense.” He said.

The dual-threat quarterback added that he wants to get a feel for the atmosphere surrounding the Cornhuskers. Having said that, it’s a shame he’s not going to be heading to see the Spring Game.

Not only could Daniels see the atmosphere in Memorial but he could see how well he could fit into the offense. In his junior year of high school, Daniels passed for 5,139 yards and 62 touchdowns while he was also dominating the game on the ground.

He added almost 1,300 yards rushing and another 15 touchdowns. Those numbers are why he’s the third-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the entire 2019 class. He’s also the 17th best player in the state of California.

If the Cornhuskers are going to win the quarterback over, they’re going to need to beat off some of the best teams in the country. That includes schools like Alabama and Georgia.

Florida State is in the quarterback as well. On the positive side, in-state schools like USC and UCLA don’t seem to be a hill the Huskers need to get over. While Jayden Daniels wants to see Nebraska football in person, he doesn’t yet have a visit set up.
