It has been a busy week for Nebraska football in terms of recruiting prospects, and Tuesday, a target of theirs named his top five schools. Geno VanDeMark put Nebraska football in that list.
The four-star lineman has Rutgers, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Arizona State on his list in addition to Nebraska. He is the able guard in his class, and the fourth overall player in his class from the state of New Jersey per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Right now, the 247Sports Crystal Ball has Rutgers as a high prediction.
Measuring in at six-foot-four, 315 pounds, VanDeMark is extremely aggressive blocking both in run and pass protection. He is very athletic as well, and is able to slide over and make a block when needed. He would fit very well with Nebraska. Especially when you consider the athletic quarterbacks that they have, they could certainly use him to help shift around the defense.
Currently, the 2021 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 41st nationally and 10th overall in the Big Ten per the 247SportsTeam Rankings.
Although it looks as though Rutgers may be the favorite here, I certainly would not count him out. You never know with recruiting. As Nebraska has fell victim to before, recruits that may look like they are leaning towards a certain school certainly change their mind. VanDeMark would be a great addition to the line, and he would give Nebraska more protection for the offense.
