The Nebraska football recruiting train is chugging right on down the tracks with a  visit from in-state prospect Tyson Terry. Terry announced he was going to be in Lincoln for the Oklahoma game on his Twitter account.

While he’s not the only recruit that will be watching the Huskers take on the Sooners, he’ll likely be one of the bigger gets if only because the Cornhuskers have had a little trouble in recent years managing to keep in-state kids … in the state.

Terry is a defensive lineman in the 2025 class who attends Omaha North. Standing 6-foot-3 and already weighing in at 270 pounds, it’s no doubt that he’s already an imposing figure on the football field, despite his youth.

According to, he’s also someone who has also found a way to use his frame very much to his advantage. Not that long ago he became the first Nebraska freshman to win a state heavyweight wrestling title since 1971. He’s also the first freshman ever to win the Class A title.

The Nebraska football team isn’t the only Power 5 program already noticing his prowess. He’s also got offers from Kansas State, Iowa State, Kansas and Minnesota. It stands to reason he’ll be getting a lot more as the clock ticks towards his commitment date in a few years.

Nebraska football’s game against Oklahoma was already going to be a big one considering it’s the next chance that Scott Frost and company can prove the program is headed in the right direction. It’s almost assuredly going to be a heck of a recruiting weekend as it will be the first time the Sooners have squared off against the Huskers in Lincoln since 2009.

Should the Nebraska football win, it will be a major step forward for a program in desperate need of a signature win, and now Tyson Terry will be among those recruits getting to see it live and in person.
