While NU didn’t land their top quarterback target, Nebraska football recruiting efforts are still trying to build a strong offense with the latest offers.
While Matt Rhule and company seemed to indicate during the spring game that Marcus Satterfield’s offense will focus on running, it doesn’t mean they won’t go after some big-time talent at the wide receiver position.
The staff is building the talent at that position from the ground up and showed that once again with a pair of offers that went out in the last two days to 4-star wide receivers in two different states.
The first offer went out on Sunday when Nebraska football recruiting efforts focused on Talyn Taylor from Geneva, Illinois. Taylor is a member of the 2025 recruiting class, and thanks to where his home state is located, he’s getting quite a bit of attention from the Big Ten.
Taylor currently ranks as the second best player in the state of Illinois for 2025 and the 59th best player overall in that class.
According to On3, the Iowa Hawkeyes are currently considered the front runners for the prospect’s services, though they aren’t running away with things. Nebraska football recruiting efforts could put a dent in that lead rather quickly.
It’s not a wonder that Taylor is getting attention already despite still having a few years in high school. In his Sophomore year, he had 800 yards receiving and over 1,400 total yards.
Nebraska football recruiting aimed at California wideout
The other Huskers target that got offered recently at the wide receiver position is from California.
Kwazi Gilmer announced on Twitter that he’d gotten an offer on Monday and it’s a safe bet the Cornhuskers are going to be going hard after the wideout.
Gilmer is a member of the 2024 class, and the Huskers entering the race at this point is especially interesting because it wasn’t that long ago that he’d announced his final six.
It would appear that the guys driving the Nebraska football recruiting bus believe they can kick the door open and make up some ground.
