The Nebraska football team lost out on a recruit that the Huskers had been hoping to reel in and they lost him to Iowa of all places.

Considering the run that Nebraska football has had over the last few weeks, it’s natural to think that the Huskers should be able to get any target they want. However, the Nebraska Cornhuskers finally lost out on one that they thought they might have had a good shot at in Joseph Anderson.

Anderson was a St. Louis area defensive end that was picked between the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Iowa, and Missouri. On Monday he decided that the Hawkeyes were the team he had the most love and affection for.

In the end, it’s hard to couch the Anderson loss as a huge defeat. After all the Huskers have shot up the recruiting rankings thanks to the kids that they did land.

Anderson is certainly someone they would have liked to add to the 2024 class, but he’s not a make-or-break type of prospect.
