A Nebraska football target has come up with an announcement that fans should be quite excited about, now it’s about closing the deal.
Matt Rhule and company have done a hell of a job building Nebraska football’s 2024 recruiting class. There is now one more player out there that could be a nice addition to a group that is among the best in the nation.
Earlier this week, Navarro Schunke made a decision that could mean he’s taking a few steps toward the Nebraska football team. The Brandon, South Dakota offensive lineman had been a dual-sport athlete.
Now Schunke will focus on pushing people around the football field and giving up things like the double leg takedown, the arm drag and the ankle pick. The 3-star prospect who has his fair share of Power 5 offers announced he’s giving up wrestling, at least at the college level.
That development is a big one of the football coaches that were waiting to see if he might decide the gridiron wasn’t where he’d end up. He’s a good enough wrestler that there was definitely a chance he might decide to do that instead.
The 6-foot-5 and 285-pound offensive lineman is a multiple state-champion wrestler. Back in May of 2022, the prospect talked to Rivals about how much the Nebraska football team was interested in him.
“Nebraska said that they saw film of me recently and said I had really good movement, good hands and feet,” Schunke told the site. “They think that I could be great down there for them. I was very excited about the offer. It was crazy.”
Nebraska football still on the radar?
Back when the 2024 prospect was offered by the Huskers, a different staff was in charge. However, Matt Rhule and company have made it clear they like quite a few of the guys Scott Frost, Mickey Joseph and the former staff went after.
It’s hard to think Schunke wouldn’t be someone the Nebraska football team would still be excited to welcome to Lincoln.
