The Nebraska football recruiting efforts continue to center heavily on landing as many good offensive linemen as possible.
Nebraska football recruiting has been continuing to roll right along as the season on the field sputters a bit. It’s clear that not only does Huskers’ head coach Matt Rhule understand the importance of the future of the program, but he seems to understand where his team most needs improvement.
The Nebraska football team has been focusing hard on the offensive line both for both the most recent class, and those still very much to come. That’s why the Huskers made a brand new offer to John Mills, a prospect who has a ton of attention from the West Coast.
Mills is a 3-star prospect in the 2025 class out of San Francisco, who has seen his recruitment surge over the last few months. The Huskers are the 7th school to come calling and it seems likely there are only more on the way.
Cal, Nevada, UCLA, and Washington are all looking to keep the 6-foot-6, 316 pound offensive lineman close to home. Nebraska football, Central Michigan and Texas are all hoping he might be looking to get away from his native region.
Nebraska football looks to lock up John Mills
Mills is far from the only offensive lineman that Matt Rhule and company are pursuing. So far, they’ve actually had some pretty decent success in landing those they go after, Brandon Baker notwithstanding.
As is usually the case when it comes to 2025 prospects, the Nebraska football program is going to have to play the wait and see game for quite a while. John Mills can’t sign on the dotted line until December of 2024 at the earliest.
That they’re already laying the groundwork in trying to land a California offensive lineman indicates the prospect is going to get quite a bit more attention before its all said and done.
Nebraska football getting its foot in the door early will hopefully help when the time comes.
