Nebraska football recruiting is zeroing in on a part of the country that used to be Mickey Joseph’s but Matt Rhule wants to make it his.
Since Matt Rhule arrived in Lincoln, it’s been interesting to see he and his staff trying to establish their pipelines. Texas has been the most obvious pipeline he and his crew have been trying to establish. He’s also gone to Pennsylvania a decent amount. Earlier this week, Nebraska football recruiting zeroed in on an area that was once considered a place that a former Husker coach’s hunting ground.
Earlier this week, Nebraska football recruiting zeroed in on not one but two wide receivers out of Louisiana. As it turns out, the Huskers are not only going after two players from the same region, but from the same school. It looks like NU is looking to nab some teammates in back to back years.
Phillip Wright III hails from Destrehan and looks to be one of the 2025 recruits that is going to be see his stock rise the closer the calendar moves to his signing day. It does look like if Nebraska football recruiting is going to pull Wright to Lincoln, the coaches are going to have to convince him to leave the SEC. At the moment, Mississippi State is at the top of the leaderboard.

Interestingly enough, the Huskers’ second Louisiana offer in the last few days is Jabari Mack. Not only is he a teammate of Phillip Wright III, one year behind him, but he’s also said to like Mississippi State among all the other teams that have offered.
Mack and Wright are very similar receivers. They are both 6 feet tall and will likely weigh in at 180 or 190 once they enter the college ranks.
There’s going to be a long road to get either of one of these receivers to Lincoln. It seems like Nebraska football recruiting sees an angle to go after these two at the same time.
