Now that we’re officially at the start of Nebraska football’s spring practice, it’s hard not to think about what the team is going to do in 2024. Of course, the coaches get paid the big bucks to worry about both the present and the future.

With that eye on the future, head coach Matt Rhule went out this week and reoffered a player the Huskers had previously shown an interest in. Omaha Central’s Dashawn Prince announced on Twitter that he received a reoffer from the Cornhuskers this week.

It would make sense why Matt Rhule and company are making sure that Prince knows the Nebraska football team really wants him in the fold. That despite the fact that as a member of the 2026 recruiting class, he’s not going to sign a National Letter of Intent for quite a while yet.

Prince has caught the eye of several recruiting analysts over the last few days. Partner that with the fact that Rhule has made it his personal mission to lock down the state and the Huskers are trying to make sure no one comes in and tries to steal Prince out from under him.

Prince himself, seems to know that his stock is rising rather quickly. He posted another tweet that showed 247Sports recruiting analyst Tom Loy who was blown away by what he saw. 

In that assessment, Loy said that he watched the Omaha Central product look rather electric. The analyst added he saw the receiver make some plays that put others to shame.

The question now is whether Nebraska football can keep fending off all comers. The Huskers are currently the only FBS offer from Dashawn Prince. It seems unlikely it will stay that way for long. Especially once he gets a season of high school football under his belt.
