The Nebraska football team is once again going to have to square off against the Bulldogs if they want to land their top QB prospect of the 2025 class.
Matt Rhule and the Huskers seem rather close to wrapping up their 2024 recruiting class. That doesn’t mean their job is done. In fact, things are already ramping up when it comes to the 2025 class.
That was demonstrated once again by an announcement by 2025 QB prospect Stone Saunders. The Pennsylvania-area prospect let social media know who his top 5 programs were. The good news is that Nebraska football is among them.
The bad news is that the Huskers rivals for Saunders are plenty strong. In addition to the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Saunders named the Miami Hurricanes, the Michigan Wolverines, Kentucky Wildcats, and the Georgia Bulldogs.
Considering that the last time Matt Rhule went head-to-head with Kirby Smart for a quarterback, the Huskers’ headman got handed his hat. It’s possible that everything is going to work out for the better.
Daniel Kaelin might end up being the guy the Nebraska football team needed more. Not just because he’s a talented quarterback on his own right, but because he’s quite the peer recruiter.
Nebraska football squaring off again
Even if Nebraska football fans want to say that landing Kaelin was better than landing Raiola, it would be hard to argue that there was an upside to losing out on Stone Saunders.
While the Nebraska football team did seemingly go after a backup plan in Alex Manske, their standing with the Iowa QB doesn’t look great. It feels as though Matt Rhule and his team is putting quite a few eggs in the Stone Saunders basket.
So far, that’s paid off. The Huskers were named among the Top 5 schools the quarterback is still looking at. It’s an impressive list. Now Nebraska football needs to stick around when he pares that list down again.
