The Nebraska football team is going to be able to show off what it can do to the best offensive line prospect in the 2024 class this fall.
Home games have always been an impressive tool for Nebraska football. Now Matt Rhule and company are going to hope it will be impressive for Brandon Baker. The Huskers are going to show off what they can do against a lesser non conference opponent with Baker in attendance, taking it all in.
Baker confirmed, according to On3 that he will be in Lincoln this fall. The confirmation comes after some whispers that he was considering holding off on committing until the winter with a visit to Lincoln as part of the rationale.
Baker is the consensus top offensive tackle prospect in the 2024 recruiting class thanks in no small part to his 6-foot-5, 290 pound build. He’s already got the body of an offensive tackle in the NFL. And he’s not yet a freshman in college.
And now the Nebraska football team will get to show him, up close and personal what he might be able to help Marcus Satterfield’s offense do if he becomes a Cornhusker. Will that be enough of a draw to lure him away from Alabama, Georgia, and the rest? Maybe not. But it gives them a fighting chance.
Nebraska football’s offensive line recruiting has upped its game
It’s clear that Rhule and company know that the best way to turn the Cornhuskers around, is to build up front. Both on the offensive and defensive lines.
The good news here, is that the approach appears to be working. The last commitment the Nebraska football team got was a 4-star offensive lineman. Now they’re hoping they can add a 5-star tackle to the mix.
The war over Brandon Baker is far from over. But getting him to come see Nebraska football in Memorial Stadium is a win, no matter how you slice it.
