It is officially National Signing Day 2023 and while this day isn’t what it used to be before there was an early signing day, the Nebraska Cornhuskers should see some significant help added to the roster today. Of course, some wrinkles mean National Signing Day could turn into National Signing Days.

Four players are committed and expected to sign during this period, and one player who hasn’t committed anywhere is expected to sign with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. If the Nebraska football team doesn’t have at least five signees by the end of the day, don’t panic.

It appears there is a little bit of weather in certain parts of the country, which might make it difficult for some prospects to have their signing day ceremonies. 4-star wide receiver Demitrius Bell is one of those that might not sign today. He actually announced he was going to wait until February 2 because of school being closed today. However, he’s since deleted that tweet.

If the Nebraska football team comes away from this week with more than five players than it will be a real shock. It they come away with less than five, it will also be a bit of a shock.

Other Nebraska Cornhuskers News

  • While Husker fans might have to wait a bit for all five players to sign their NLI, they’ve already started trickling in. Tight end Ismael Smith Flores officially signed and is now a member of the Nebraska football team for real.
  • Texas athlete Jeremiah Charles also signed his NLI early on Wednesday morning. That means 40 percent of the expected National Signing Day class is already officially on board.
  • That leaves Bell, Sua Lefotu (who is on the West Coast and will likely be signing later in the morning) and the uncommitted but Nebraska Cornhuskers leaning D’Andre Barnes as the last prospects to watch as far as who we expect to be Matt Rhule gets today.

Other Sports News

  • Apparently not content to let the college football players have the spotlight today, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement on social media this morning. He made it very clear that this time, it was officially official and he isn’t going to be reversing his decision. That makes sense considering he had the kind of year too many of the other greats of the game had where it was clear he just wasn’t at his best anymore. I was never really a fan of Brady or the Patriots and a lot of that had to do with him playing for Michigan (even before the Nebraska Cornhuskers were in the Big Ten, we didn’t like Michigan) but he is undeniably the GOAT and next season will be weird without him.
