Nebraska Football  was on the receiving end of another huge commitment Wednesday,

Nebraska football continues to have a pretty good signing day, and this time they beat out the Clemson Tigers for a very prized recruit. 2019 offensive tackle Jimmy Fritzsche committed to Nebraska on Wednesday.

Fritzsche is the No. 31 overall player in the state of South Carolina per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

This is a huge get for Nebraska. For starters, the program beat out Clemson who is known to be a college football superpower. That in itself is big. Also, Fritzsche adds additional depth to the tackle position. If there is one thing that has been consistent about the program during this signing., It is that they are focusing on the line. Currently, Nebraska has five tackles on the roster and three commitments (now four) with the addition of Fritzsche.

What does this mean for Nebraska? Well for starters it means that they are focused on protecting the offense. That seems to have been a goal for them heading into this process as they have landed a bunch of line commitments. Measuring in at six-foot-seven, 240 pounds,  Fritzsche will certainly add even more depth to the line.

The program is looking to protect the quarterback and allow them to run their offense. Stocking up on all these lineman will allow them to do that. In particular, a veteran offense of line is key for an offense. By the time these commitments (including Fritzsche) become juniors, they could have one of the best lines in the country. You look at the job that Scott Frost did in turning around UCF and it is hard to argue with the results. He may not be getting commitments from the flashy positions quite yet, but he is getting the types of commitments that build a solid foundation for the program.

Nebraska has identified positional targets and for the most part, they have succeeded. With a slew of commitments in the fold already, one has to wonder what they have up their sleeve for Signing Day in February. If December is any indication, Nebraska could be in for a big month. That could mean great things for the future of the program.
