The Nebraska football team decided that when it came to offering offensive linemen from a Hawaii high school, they might as well be economical.

A recent excursion into Hawaii for the Nebraska football team ended up with not one but two new prospects. On Tuesday, the Cornhuskers offered Punahao offensive lineman Duke Clemens and Solatoa Moea’i.

The offers come in what has been a fast and furious rash of offers from Scott Frost and his coaching staff. It appears the group has decided to aim for as many targets as possible and see what ends up shaking out.

When it comes to the two Islanders, it turns out the staff is trying to cover its bases not only for the 2019 class but also for the 2020 class as well.

Clemens is a three-star prospect out of Hawaii according to the 247Sports composite ratings. He’s considered the sixth best player from his state in 2019 and the 24th best guard overall.

The lineman has been getting quite a bit of attention of late, including from some of the country’s best football programs. Clemens now boasts 19 total offers. The Huskers stand out among the group as the only Big Ten school.

Nebraska is also one of the only schools not on the West Coast trying their luck with the Hawaii prospect. When it comes to Moea’i, the Cornhuskers are going after a prospect that has been quite a bit more under the radar.

The Nebraska football team is just the second team in FBS to offer. The Virginia Cavaliers are so far the Huskers’ only competition.

If the attention being paid to the 2020 prospect’s teammates is any indication, the Cornhuskers are going to be happy they managed to get their foot in the door when they did. Neither prospect has made any indications on when they might start visiting and laying out their top schools as it shakes out now.
