The Nebraska football team has made a ton of offers to 2020 players and earlier this week they issued an offer to the top-ranked player in the class.

Bryan Bresee is the latest 2020 prospect to get an official scholarship offer from the Nebraska football program. Bresee is just the latest member of the 2020 class to get an offer from the Huskers this week.

The Cornhuskers have been making the rounds for the next batch of prospects with offers to players like Jordan Johnson. Bresee stands out from the crowd as 247Sports has ranked him as the top player in the entire class.

The defensive end from Damascus, Maryland stands 6-5 and 290 pounds and appears to have all the tools to be a dominant defender in the college game. I’m far from the only person who clearly thinks this as the defensive end already has 30 offers.

Those offers have all come despite the fact that it’s going to be about a year and half before Bresee will be signing with anyone. It’s going to be a long time before he even really starts pairing down squads that he might be favoring.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t some way to tell where the defender is leaning at the moment. 247Sports has aimed their crystal ball at Ohio State. That’s far from surprising.

Another school he’s got some real interest in is Maryland. Despite the fact that the Terapins have struggled in the last few years, they’ve managed to bring in some talented players.

One of those players was drafted in the first round of the 2018 draft last night. Wide receiver DJ Moore demonstrated that Maryland can get players ready for the next level.  The Terps will be able to use that as a recruiting tool.

While no Nebraska football players were drafted last night, and likely won’t be drafted in the second or third round, Scott Frost and company can point to UCF players like Mike Hughes as proof they too can send players to the next level. Now they just need to get in the good graces of Bryan Bresee.
