One of the most interesting things about what Matt Rhule has been doing with Nebraska football recruiting is that he’s gone after quite a few legacy recruits. Most of those legacy recruits are the sons of former Huskers.

However, one of the latest Nebraska football offers to get doled out went to the brother of a former Cornhuskers star. Ex-linebacker Blake Lawrence took to social media himself to announce that his brother is officially on Matt Rhule and company's radar.

“My youngest brother picked up a BIG offer today,” Lawrence wrote earlier this month. “He's one of the top OL prospects in the '25 class.Nebraska fans, show the kid some love!!!”

That youngest brother goes by the name Brock Heath and he is indeed a rising prospect in the state of Kansas. That’s likely because the interior offensive lineman already stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 260 pounds.

Heath is considered the number 7 player in Kansas and the 24th best IOL in the class, according to 247Sports. He’s been picking up Power Conference offers for quite a while now but the Nebraska football team is the latest.

Matt Rhule and company are going to be facing off against quite a few conference rivals in order to land the 2025 3-star prospect. Iowa and Illinois have given Heath offers. As have Arkansas, Duke and Baylor.

One would hope that Blake Lawrence will be willing to let his brother know that the Huskers would be a heck of a landing spot. 

He played for the Corhuskers from 2007 to 2009 as a linebacker. His best season was the 2008 campaign when he logged 21 total tackles and an interception. 

These days, the former Nebraska football player is working with NIL collectives like OpenDorse. That would seem to indicate that when Brock Heath does sign somewhere, he’ll get the most bang for his buck.
