Nebraska football is on the hunt for more lineman.
As the offseason continues and recruiting begins to heat up, Nebraska football will be the beneficiary of a couple of visits over the next couple of days. One of those visits will be from offensive lineman Sullivan Weldman. Weldman took to social media on Thursday evening, indicating that Nebraska will be one of several schools he plans to visit over the next five days.
Weldman is a three-star lineman. He is ranked the 59th overall offense of tackle in his class, and the fifth overall player in the 2022 class from the state of Massachusetts per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
In addition to Nebraska football, he has several offers on the table. Arizona State, Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, and Duke are among the schools that have extended him an offer.
What would he be able to bring to the table for Nebraska football? Measuring in at six-foot-six, 300 pounds, he does very well in pass protection. As soon as the ball is snapped, he is able to stay with his man and keep him away from the quarterback. He is able to extend his hands, and get the advantage on his man rather quickly. He would definitely be able to help Nebraska football in pass protection, and would undoubtedly be an asset in the run game.
This is the type of lineman that Nebraska football is looking for. Over the past couple of classes, we have seen them go after guys who are sturdy, fundamentally sound, and have the height and weight to be imposing forces on the line. This is certainly what is needed in Big Ten football, and I’d expect them to continue to follow this blueprint for years to come.
Currently, Nebraska football has one commitment in the 2022 class. Ernest Hausmann holds that distinction. Nebraska football is undoubtedly going to do more work in this class, so I’m not exactly worried that it only has one commitment at this point in time. Judging by offers they have sent out, this class could end up shaping up nicely.
I’ll be interested to see if Nebraska football can land Weldman. Hopefully his visit goes well, and Nebraska makes a good impression on him. He is exactly the type of lineman they are looking for. Massachusetts may not be known for producing top-notch athletes every year. However, they can produce a solid lineman every couple of years. Weldman fits into that category.
