The Nebraska football team is looking to shore up its roster without taking up scholarships with two PWO offers to talented, in-state prospects.
Recruiting in the Matt Rhule era of Nebraska football has certainly been interesting to watch. There have been some tremendous offers going out of late, and then there have also been some offers meant to add talent to the roster while still leaving an opening for more high-profile prospects.
Sunday was another sign of a Nebraska football recruiting approach that has the state buzzing. While the team technically took the day off, the coaches were busy on the phones. This time around, they dished out preferred walk-on offers to a couple of promising in-state prospects.
It should come as no surprise that the PWO offers that went out today were to guys the Huskers believe can help them on the line.
Nebraska football with two PWO offers
The first preferred walk-on offer went out to Nolan Fennessy. The Norfolk Catholic defensive lineman is one of those players that has been on the radar of more than one Power 5 program.
As of now, he hasn’t received an official scholarship offer from an FBS school, but plenty of smaller teams have come calling. He’s got offers from Wayne State and Sioux Falls College and is at least getting looks from North Dakota State and North Dakota.
The second PWO Nebraska football offer of the afternoon went out to Jacob Arop. Like Fennessy, he hasn’t had a ton of FBS programs come calling with official offers, but he’s at least been getting looks.
Arop also has some pretty big names in his camp as far as current and potential future teammates. When the 6-foot-5, 260-pound offensive lineman announced he got the PWO offer from Nebraska football, wide receivers Dae’Vonn Hall and Isaiah McMorris were both quick to celebrate.
Both receivers, of course, are commits in the 2024 class.
