The Nebraska Cornhuskers scored their 20th commit of the 2024 class with the addition of Quinn Clark, the son of former football star Ken Clark.

The Huskers continued their insane recruiting roll on Tuesday as Matt Rhule and company moved ever closer to filling up the 2024 class before July. Quinn Clark is the latest visit from this past weekend to get locked down and commit.

Clark announced he’d committed on Tuesday afternoon, and while he isn’t someone who has gotten a ton of FBS offers, he has the build (6-foot-5) and the speed that the Huskers obviously believe they can use in Marcus Satterfield’s offense.

“I like the way coach Satterfield runs his offense,” Clark told On3 after committing. “He kept harping on being the most aggressive offense in college football and I can buy into that. He also said he’s a big shot taker and throws down the field and that’s my thing!”
