Nebraska football has a new crystal ball projection in the 2025 recruiting class, plus more Nebraska Cornhuskers news.
It was an active weekend for Nebraska football on the recruiting trail as the Cornhuskers had more than 30 recruits on campus from the 2025 and 2026 classes.
There was even a three-star defensive end visiting in the 2024 class. We talked about that on Friday and Keona Wilhite is a name to watch as a late addition for the Huskers in the 2024 cycle.
However, the focus was more on future classes. Things are getting serious in 2025 and it was a good weekend for Nebraska football with top in-state recruit Christian Jones, who called the visit, “The best one yet.” Five-star offensive tackle Jackson Cantwell said that he will make a return trip after taking his third visit to Nebraska.
