Nebraska football recruiting is trying to shore up its offensive line prospects in the very near future with a new offer to Arizona’s Logan Powell. The Huskers will have some serious competition for the 4-star prospect in the 2025 class.
Powell announced that Nebraska football recruiting came calling over the weekend on Twitter. The Huskers are the 13th team that’s officially given the 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle an offer.
It’s a safe bet the Cornhuskers aren’t going to be the last.
Of those 13 teams, the list of schools that came calling is a who’s who of FBS powers. It should shock no one that Arizona and Arizona State are at the top of the list, considering he hails from Phoenix.
They’re joined by Nebraska football recruiting zeroing in on Powell alongside Boston College, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Oregon State, Purdue, Tennessee, USC and Wisconsin courting him as well.
It should come as no surprise that the Big Ten is coming after Powell hard. However, at the moment, according to 247Sports, TCU is actually the team to beat. However, there isn’t a real consensus on who the offensive lineman is favoring, considering that On3 has the Sun Devils as the team to beat.
Nebraska football recruiting going hard to rebuild O-line
It’s pretty clear that Matt Rhule and company believe that the best way to rebuild the Huskers is to rebuild the pipeline. Not all of those efforts have paid off.
Nebraska football recruiting took a bit of a hit over the weekend when 5-star offensive lineman Brandon Baker decided he was going to be a Longhorn. Baker had been giving the Huskers a rather long look. That included a trip to Lincoln for the Northern Illinois game.
In the end, he went elsewhere. That isn’t stopping Nebraska football recruiting from going out nad targeting some of the best offensive lineman in any class they think they can get a win.
