Nebraska Cornhuskers News: Tyson Terry latest commit, Rob Childress return, more

The Nebraska Cornhuskers had a very good day when it comes to adding pieces that could be the ones that help turn those programs around.

The Nebraska football team got its second commit in the last two days in the form of 2025 prospect Tyson Terry. The 3-star defensive lineman from Omaha North is a big get in particular because the Nebraska Cornhuskers have been talking a big game about locking down the state.

So far, Matt Rhule has had some mixed results when it comes to really locking down Nebraska. There’s some talk that he might be losing the top prospect in the state this year to Georgia. But he’s also clearly showing that he can woo the best players in the state.

That includes 2024 quarterback Daniel Kaelin, who was among those that were quite happy Terry announced that he’d committed to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Terry is also the second commit in the 2025 class as Rhule and his staff keep building for the future.

Other Nebraska Cornhuskers news

  • The Nebraska baseball team’s reshaping of its coaching roster continued on Friday. When Jeff Christy was let go, there were quite a few people who thought Rob Childress would step in and that he was the no-brainer decision. On Friday, head coach Will Bolt did indeed announce he’d moved Childress from the Athletic Department back to pitching coach.
  • The Huskers didn’t just hire Childress though. They also hired Wichita State assistant Mike Sirianni who is considered a recruiting whiz and a good coach. Bolt seems to know that things were headed in the wrong direction. To his credit, he’s taking steps to correct that.
  • Speaking of head coaches doing everything right lately, Matt Rhule continues to lead the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a way that is winning fans before he even has a chance to win games. The man is a brilliant PR guy. If his coaching is half as good, the football team is going to be a contender again in a matter of years.
  • Sometimes, it’s the little things. Like when Rhule tried some axe throwing. And hit the bulleyes on his first try. The Nebraska Cornhuskers program could be on the way up in a big way.
