Nebraska football commit Daniel Kaelin is taking his responsibility as a peer recruiter seriously as he’s working the phones, emails, and texts quite hard.
Now that Matt Rhule’s regime has officially started in Lincoln, the coaching staff and players have a lot of work to do. And that work is going to continue on past this season. Daniel Kaelin certainly understands that.
While Kaelin has only been a Nebraska football commit for about a week, he’s clearly looking out for the Huskers and making sure he does all he can to help the program improve. To that end, Kaelin publicly started peer recruiting the Huskers’ top target in the state in Carter Nelson. But it turns out that was just the start of the work he’s put in.
The Bellevue West product and top quarterback in Nebraska’s class of 2024 recently talked to 247Sports about how he’s peer-recruiting quite a few players. Even ones he doesn’t know all that well and doesn’t think they know Nebraska football as well as they should.
"“I’ve been hitting up most of those guys and trying to paint the picture of the vision that Coach Rhule and the staff there painted for me as far as what Nebraska can be and hopefully I can do the same for them. Obviously the staff is recruiting them as well, but I want to be an extra piece of that. It’s maybe a little different being recruit to recruit, so that’s another aspect of helping.”"
Nebraska football getting a boost from Daniel Kaelin
Among the players he’s very obviously reached out to are two Bellevue teammates that are both being pursued by the Nebraska football team. Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall are right at the top of the list as he tries to secure his teammates and make sure he’s got some targets to throw to when he’s in Lincoln full-time.
