Nebraska Football is in the running for an elite recruit.
The recruiting never stops for Nebraska Football, and that has certainly been true this week. Nebraska has made the top 10 grouping for a 2021 wide receiver. Romello Brinson announced his top 10 via Twitter, and Nebraska was on the list.
Brinson is the 29th overall wide receiver in his class, and the 20th overall player in the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is a four-star prospect and has offers from several top schools. In addition to Nebraska, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, and Miami have also extended offers his way. In total, he has 26 offers on the table.
What can he bring to the table for Nebraska Football? Measuring in at six-foot-two, 180 pounds, he has tremendous hands. Once he catches a football, he turns on the jets for a score. He has a tremendous amount of speed and can evade defenders with ease. He is the type of playmaking receiver that Nebraska has been going after in recruiting.
We have seen it with the 2020 class. Omar Manning and Alante Brown are two names that come to mind. They are receivers that should be able to stretch the field and allow for the offense to really open up and be explosive. When I look at some of his highlights, I feel like Brinson has that same mold. Adding another receiver with the skill set would not be a bad thing for Nebraska. If anything, it will only help them keep up with the rest of the Big Ten.
Nebraska Football has already done a ton of work on the 2021 recruiting class, but the commitments have not begun to roll in yet. They do have two four-star prospects in Teddy Prochazka and Randolph Kpai, and I would love to see more four-star commitments. Brinson would be another good addition to the class. Between what Nebraska has done over the course of the past couple weeks in recruiting, it seems like everything they have touched has turned to gold. That is certainly a far cry from a couple of years ago.
Nebraska Football has been working very hard to create a roster that they see fit. I have a feeling that they will be able to land several solid commitments over the next couple years. One thing at a time however, and it seems like Nebraska is taking that approach as well as they continue to build.
