Legacy recruits are not anything really new to the Nebraska football program. However, more than ever before, it feels like quite a few sons are looking at playing for the Huskers in the next few years. Two new legacy recruits have recently come into focus, with both taking a long look at Matt Rhule’s program.
Dylan Raiola might be the most famous legacy recruit on the radar of the Nebraska football program but there are at least two others who could be garnering more attention quite quickly. Pierre Allen Jr of Lincoln and Quinn Clark are two very talented prospects looking in Lincoln’s direction.
Quinn Clark is the son of former Nebraska football star Ken Clark. The running back was the Huskers leading rusher in 1988 and 1989 and eventually went on to a short career with the Indianapolis Colts. Now Quinn, a Bozemann, Montana prospect and member of the 2024 class, is hoping Nebraska football will come calling for him.
Clark plays wide receiver and safety but is on record as saying he prefers offense for his college days. At the moment, he has offers from Montana and Montana State. FBS schools haven’t given him an official offer, but the Husker legacy claims he’s been getting more attention from that level recently.
While UCLA and some other Pac-12 schools are the most likely destination if he goes the FBS route, Clark recently told 247 Sports that if Rhule came calling, he would be hard to turn down.
"“Nebraska has always been my dream school. My dad played for Nebraska and got drafted in 1991 by the Colts and my family is good friends with coach Tom Osborne. So they would be an offer that is hard to pass on.”"
Nebraska Football: Pair of legacies giving Huskers long look
Meanwhile, Pierre Allen Jr. from Lincoln Southeast is also showing the Huskers quite a bit of love lately. The 2025 prospect’s father, Pierre Allen Sr. played for the Huskers from 2007 to 2010 and amassed 182 tackles and 13 sacks.
Allen’s son is a wide receiver who has started getting quite a bit more attention from big schools. Those big schools include Nebraska football now. In fact, the legacy recruit will be taking in the Cornhuskers’ practice on April 1.
Neither Clark nor Allen have offers from Rhule and company just yet, but it seems more than likely that the staff will find a way to add them to the Nebraska football program if they really want to be a part of it.
