The Nebraska football team exited the weekend with several new offers to camp attendees, including the 3-star signal caller.
Alex Manske is not a name most Nebraska football fans heard before this week. He may not be a name most Nebraska football coaches heard much of before this weekend.
However, after coming to Lincoln for the Huskers’ latest camp, he impressed the coaching staff enough that they decided he was worth making a team member when he’s able, in 2025. The offer makes him the 6th quarterback in the 2025 class that Matt Rhule and company are officially pursuing.
Of those six, there are now two that are considered lean towards NU. One of the most important questions that arise from the offer to Manske is, “just what is happening with Stone Saunders?”
The Huskers may simply be looking to take more than one comfortable in next year’s class. After all, they are only adding Daniel Kaelin from 2024, and if Dylan Raiola had panned out, it’s a 99.9 percent certainty Kaelin wouldn’t be in the fold.
That’s the hope, anyway. Here’s hoping it’s not a situation where the coaches think they’re slipping on Saunders. Not this early. Not when they’ve been the front runners for so long.
Nebraska football offers Alex Manske
As for Alex Manske, the Nebraska football teams seems to be squaring off with the Wisconsin Badgers as the two teams most likely to win the services of the Algona, Iowa native.
His numbers in just nine games as a sophomore certainly make it clear he’s worth the offer. It seems unlikely that the Huskers will be the last squad to come calling. He threw for 1,688 yards and 20 touchdowns while also producing with his legs to the tune of 400 more yards.
Pittsburgh, Illinois and Iowa have all offered as well. Now it’s a race to see how the 2025 recruiting class shakes out and what Nebraska football is planning for the quarterback position.
