Nebraska football recruiting, especially at the tight end position for 2024, is drawing rave reviews from one of the top analysts in the country.
It hasn’t exactly been a surprise that the Nebraska football team is on a recruiting roll. The Huskers are among the Top 25 in the country according to the three major recruiting services.
The success Rhule and company are having across the board can also be broken down to specific positions where the Cornhuskers are outdoing everyone else in the country. According to Mike Farrell, the tight-ends that Nebraska football has reeled in for 2024 makes them among the three best tight-end classes in the country.
In fact, Farrell believes that the tight-end class the Huskers have brought in is perhaps the best of any position group Nebraska football has this year. That’s even more impressive, considering that the “class” is really just two players.
It certainly helps that one of those players is Carter Nelson.
"“Nelson is a fantastic athlete that absolutely dominates at the high school level. On offense, Nelson put up 1,286 combined yards (rushing and receiving) and accounted for 25 total touchdowns. On defense, he intercepted six passes and had 41 tackles. He plays eight-man football which could hinder his ability to adjust at the next level, but Nelson has arguably the highest ceiling as a tight end in the class. Time will tell, but I believe that Nelson will be a household name for Nebraska fans in the future”"
Nebraska football’s other tight-end gets rave review
Farrell points out that the other tight-end recruit in the 2024 class for the Huskers, Ian Flynt isn’t as flashy as Nelson, but he’s got plenty of talent of his own. Farrell believes that Flynt could be quite the complementary player to Nelson.
While the Ainsworth prospect is a big-time receiving threat, Flynt is more of a block-first player that the analyst still believes Nebraska football fans will be quite happy to have on the roster.
"“I believe that Flynt was brought in to be an excellent blocker in heavy packages. We’ll see how he develops, but I think Flynt could be a solid player that fills his role well.”"
If there’s any doubt that Nebraska football is ranked among the best of the nation. Farrell’s other top tight-end classes come from USC and Michigan. It’s certainly a positive to be among that crop.
