Alex Manske is the top target for Nebraska football at QB in the 2025 class, but he won’t visit next weekend.
Plenty of dominoes have fallen after Nebraska football signed five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola as part of the 2024 class.
And it seems like one of the dominoes is that the Huskers are losing some of the traction they had with 2025 quarterback Alex Manske.
Manske is part of the 2025 class and is rated as a three-star prospect according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He’s one of the top players out of Iowa and since this past summer, Nebraska football has been pushing hard for his commitment — hosting him for visits on five different occasions.
Next weekend, Nebraska football is hosting a junior day with several key 2025 targets set to be on campus. Christian Jones, the top-ranked recruit in the state for the 2025 class, will visit next Friday, along with Tyson Terry and others. The Huskers will have 13 visitors on Friday and 14 on Saturday.
Alex Manske won’t visit for Junior Day
However, one recruit that won’t visit is Manske. It was thought that Mankse would make the trip, yet it seems like he’s cooled on Nebraska after the Raiola commitment, which put two quarterbacks in the 2025 class. So not only would Manske have to sit behind Daniel Kaelin — he would also have to sit behind Raiola — meaning it could be five years before Nebraska will have an opening to start at quarterback.
The Huskers aren’t the only team pushing for Manske and Texas A&M has started to emerge. Colin Klein is the new offensive coordinator and the former Kansas State coach already knew Mankse well. According to Bryan Munson of Husker Online, the Aggies will host Manske next weekend.
That doesn’t mean Nebraska doesn’t have a shot, but with their 2024 QB haul, landing a top-ranked quarterback in 2025 isn’t going to be easy and Manske is an early example of that.
