Nebraska football likely has its starting quarterback for the 2024 season in Dylan Raiola. However, there are still some gaps in the starting spots for other positions on the offense.

Most notably, the Huskers must find at least one other wide receiver. It would be better if they managed to haul in two, considering that Marcus Washington recently announced he was going to the NFL rather than trying to get another year out of the NCAA.

Matt Rhule and company are working hard on nabbing at least one receiver in former Wake Forest receiver Jahmal Banks. In fact, it's been reported that Banks is slated for an official visit in January.

Things are moving quickly for the ex-Demon Deacon as he received an official Nebraska football offer just a few days ago. Of course, when talking about the transfer portal, it's always important to move as quickly as possible

There's just so many other schools that are going after the same players. Those players can pull the trigger on committing and signing quickly as well. It's a different animal than high school recruiting in that regard.

It has to be seen as a good sign that the Huskers are getting Banks to Lincoln. He's certainly been a hot commodity this winter as he's taken quite a few visits to other Power 5 schools.

Notre Dame is likely the front-runner for the former Wake Forest star. However, that could change quickly, considering that the Nebraska football program has immediate openings for a starter and the Irish have already nabbed two transfer pass-catchers through the portal.

Banks is a big-bodied wideout who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs in at 205 pounds. This past season he caught 59 passes for 653 yards and 4 touchdowns. All three of those numbers would be team highs for Nebraska football.
