As the calendar moves to warmer and warmer weather, the Nebraska football team is ramping up its recruiting efforts. Since Matt Rhule and company arrived in Lincoln, the Huskers have been on a pretty good run in that regard.

It’s possible the Cornhuskers are taking a bit step forward in landing one of the more sought after running backs in the 2025 class, who just happens to be a free agent. Jamarion Parker had been committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks for quite a while. However, this week he decided to become a free agent.

Now that he’s not pledged to anyone, it looks like the Nebraska football team is moving fast, getting him into Lincoln for a visit this June. That official visit is not only a nice step forward for the Huskers, it is at the moment, the first official visit the 4-star back out of St. Louis has scheduled for now.

It appears that the Huskers aren’t the only team that’s going after Parker, as TCU has already gotten in the mix as well. It’s possible, as a matter of the fact that the Horned Frogs should be considered the team to beat. 

“I started thinking about this when coach Jimmy Smith left for TCU,” Parker told On3 ($) 

Smith departed the Arkansas Razorbacks not long after the 2023 season ended. It’s clear that the two had a relationship that was quite strong.

The question now is whether or not the Nebraska football team can find a way to strike up that same kind of relationship. They’re going to need to get it done quick as schools like Colorado, Kansas State and Illinois were going hard after Jamarion Parker the before he committed to Arkansas. 

Matt Rhule is hoping Nebraska football can take advantage of an SEC also ran losing a commit.
