If Nebraska football fans are impressed how many players Matt Rhule has been able to reel in, then they’ll be even more impressed by where the class ranks.
The Nebraska football team has had an incredible June. When the month started, the Huskers had seven players in the 2024 class. By the end of Friday, there were 17 scholarship players in that class. By the end of the weekend, there’s a chance the class could be at 20.
The awe-inspiring aspect of what Rhule and his staff have done isn’t just that they’ve grabbed many players in a short time. It’s that they’ve grabbed talented players that helped the Nebraska football team’s 2024 recruiting class shoot up the rankings.
They’ve shot up the rankings with every big recruiting service.
Nebraska football movin’ on up
Over on 247Sports, the Huskers were already looking at a pretty solid ranked class. They were ranked 22nd in the country before they added a swath of recruits this week.
Hall and McMorris was the icing on the cake of the big week and the Nebraska football team is currently ranked 17th in the country. NU is currently 5th in the Big Ten behind Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and Minnesota. Other than the Golden Gophers, the only teams ahead of NU are perenially dominant on the recruiting trail.
On HuskerOnline, the ranking isn’t quite as impressive as they’re sitting at 23rd. They’re 5th in the Big Ten on that site as well. However, they’re 5th among 16 as USC and UCLA are both included in those rankings.
On that site, the Nebraska football team is behind only Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and USC. Once again, that’s not a group anyone should be ashamed to be trailing.
Over on Rivals, NU is once again inside the Top 20 at number 18 in the country. That site has the Cornhuskers a bit lower in the Big Ten. They are sixth behind Michigan, Penn State, Ohio State, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
All of this is quite interesting considering the Nebraska football team is currently trying to break a six-year streak of not even winning six games.
