Nebraska football recruiting is ramping down the 2023 cycle, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t quite a bit of action when it comes to the 2024 cycle. Mickey Joseph has been plenty busy handing out new offers, but the Cornhuskers are also doing quite a bit of work trying to fend off competition for players’ they’ve already offered. Right at the top of the list is Omaha Central offensive lineman Caleb Pyfrom.

The Nebraska football team was actually the first P5 team to offer Caleb Pyfrom. It turns out they were far from the last. The big tackle has gotten a ton of attention from schools all over the midwest.

Most recently, the Omaha prospect has been getting some serious love from some of the Huskers biggest Big Ten West rivals. Earlier this month, the Iowa Hawkeyes came calling with an official offer. Earlier this week, the Minnesota Golden Gophers followed suit.

Considering that Nebraska football recruiting efforts kicked off the race for Caleb Pyfrom, the fact that he’s up to seven offers at this point is quite impressive. In addition to the Huskers, Gophers, and Hawkeyes, Missouri, Kansas State, Iowa State and Kansas have official offers out to Caleb Pyfrom.

The good news is that for now, at least, the Huskers are still the supposed front runners for the massive offensive lineman. In fact, for now, the Nebraska football recruiting gurus believe that the Cornhuskers are big favorites.

There is a lot of time between signing day next December when the Omaha prospect can finally sign his letter of intent. We don’t even know who will be the head coach or whether or not Pyfrom will still be one of the lead targets.

Of course, with the quality of teams that have come since the Huskers opened the door and helped put him on the FBS teams’ map, it would be foolish not to make sure he’s playing in Memorial Stadium when his high school career comes to an end.
