The Nebraska football team has taken several steps towards continuing to building its 2024 recruiting class and now there’s at least one more.
It wasn’t that long ago that Logan-Magnolia offensive lineman Grant Brix was considered all but gone. It appeared that the Kansas State Wildcats had wrapped the race up. And then Thursday happened.
Matt Rhule and his staff have looked like they were pulling off some impressive magic tricks with the number of players they’ve landed in such a short period of time. Now it looks like the Huskers’ coaching staff might have another rabbit under its collective hat.
According to On3, Brix went from being almost gone, to being almost locked up. It’s not a done deal yet, but Kansas State went from being 100 percent a Wildcat lean, to a 72 percent Nebraska football lean.
The even better news for this particular switchup is what it seems to indicate. Husker fans have spent the better part of the last week watching recruiting experts suddenly cast prediction after prediction in favor of NU. It was usually a matter of hours before the prospects pulled the trigger on a commitment.
It happened with the Bellevue 2, it happened with Carter Nelson (though he took a smidge longer) And the history of these big switches indicate that Grant Brix might be a member of the Nebraska football 2024 recruiting class by the end of the weekend.
Nebraska football keeps trending up
Not every sign is one that shows the Cornhuskers have locked up the 4-star lineman. The 6-foot-6 top prospect in the state of Iowa is still considered a heavy Wildcat lean by 247Sports.
The caveat there is that there hasn’t been a new prediction by 247Sports. Of course, that could be rolling in any minute as well. Just like the Nebraska football could be rolling into a 23rd commit very soon.
