Nebraska football commit Willis McGahee IV felt the love. Nebraska baseball got a commit. That and more in today’s Nebraska Cornhuskers news.

Willis McGahee IV kicked off the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ big spring game with a commit a couple of hours before the last big practice of the spring. Over the weekend, he’s talked a bit about his commit and why he pulled the trigger for the Huskers.

The Miami, Florida, prospect said that he felt quite a bit of love form Husker fans and coaches on his visits. “It made sense just to do it while I was up there again,” he told 247Sports. He also talked about the position he thinks he’ll be playing for Nebraska football, and he’s pretty darn excited about that as well.

Nebraska baseball gets another 2023 commit

The Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball team managed to actually add another player from, the 2023 recruiting class. Dylan Hufft announced on Twitter that he’d pulled the trigger for Will Bolt’s boys.

Hufft took a redshirt at Kansas State in his freshman year but at Johnson County CC the next year he has hit .389 this year with 39 RBIs. The addition of the JUCO transfer means that the Huskers are going to have even a little more offense on a team that so far, has been the strength of the team, not counting the sweep to Iowa.
