Nebraska Football: Physical safety has eye on Huskers

Miami Northwestern  could be fruitful for Nebraska Football again.

Could Miami Northwestern proved to be fruitful for Nebraska football once again. It appears that Nebraska football has a chance at a star playmaker. Safety Kamren Kinchens announced his final five teams on Thursday. Nebraska was a part of that list.

Kinchens is a member of the 2021 class. He is a three-star recruit, and the 16th overall safety in his class per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. In addition to Nebraska, Kinchens also has Auburn, LSU, Miami, and Texas A&M in his top five.

Most recently, he was offered by LSU on May 6.

Miami Northwestern Senior High School has yielded Nebraska football much success. Most recently, they secured a commitment from Patrick Payton.

There is no doubt that Kinchens can play the game. Last season, he recorded 74 tackles, three of them for a loss. In addition, he proved to be a ball hawk, recording nine interceptions. He sounds exactly like the type of playmaker Nebraska football will need for the future.

When I watch his film, that’s exactly what I see. Measuring in at five-foot-11, 190 pounds, Kinchens plays bigger than his height may suggest. I’m not saying he’s going to turn out like him, but he reminds me of Ed Reed in the sense that he can track the ball really well and make a play. That alertness in the passing game will suit Nebraska football extremely well. They have been known to have some ball hawks in the secondary, and Kinchens will fit right in.

Especially when you think about the safety position, you want a player that makes a quarterback hesitate in regards to throwing towards the middle of the field. A great safety will do exactly that. Kinchens has that type of aggressive play style. He would fit well in Lincoln.

I’ll be interested to see if Nebraska football can land another commitment from this area. They have done extremely well over the past couple of months in getting recruits from Miami Northwestern to commit to the program. Now, it’s all about building a pipeline down there as Scott Frost looks to get talent to help the program compete with the rest of the Big Ten Conference. With Frost being the former head coach of UCF, I can see it happening.

Kinchens would be a great get for the program and continue their success in recruiting down south. Maybe, just maybe, they have found a formula for sustained success.
