Nebraska football has its quarterbacks of the present officially signed, sealed and delivered. Now its about adding players who can follow in the footsteps of Dylan Raiola and Daniel Kaelin. Who better to do that than the guy who is already following in Kaelin's high school footsteps.
Will Anderson looks to be the next quarterback at Bellevue West to put up the kind of numbers that will get Power 4 teams coming calling. Best of all for Anderson is that he's got a few years to show exactly what it is he can do.
Anderson is already on the Nebraska football program's radar to such a degree that he's in Lincoln this weekend for another one of the Cornhusker Junior Days. He's getting recruited hard already by the Huskers despite the fact that he won't be able to sign on the dotted line until December of 2025.
He also hasn't yet really gotten to show colleges what he can do. However, when you play for Bellevue West, you now get the benefit of the doubt that he will be someone who will garner FBS offers.
Part of that belief is because he performed quite well as the understudy for Daniel Kaelin in sophomore season. Will Anderson completed 57.5 percent of his passes in 40 attempts. He amassed 255 yards and 3 touchdowns with just 1 interception.
Like Kaelin, Anderson's strength is certainly his arm, but he does have the ability to get on the move when he has to do so. He had 39 carries for 100 yards in the 2023 campaign.
Nebraska football already looking at Bellevue West future
One other reason why the Huskers are almost certainly giving Anderson a longer look is because they've seen what he can do with some of Daniel Kaelin's top teammates.
With his visit to Lincoln is early in his recruiting run, it's unlikely that this will be anywhere near the only time he takes in what Nebraska football has to offer.
