Nebraska football has a bright future thanks in large part to the talent in the quarterback room. Matt Rhule and company have done a great job of adding talent to the game’s most important position and that quest continues on the recruiting trail.

Four-star quarterback TJ Lateef is the top target in the 2025 class and following his official visit during the spring game, things have been trending in the right direction. Steve Wiltfong said he was close to an expert projection in favor of Nebraska football, which would be a positive sign.

Yet, the pursuit of quarterback talent continues in the 2026 class as the Huskers offered Brodie McWhorter, a four-star prospect from Georgia who is the 13th QB offer in 2026 for Nebraska football. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound quarterback out of Cartersville, Georgia is ranked No. 253 overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings.

Dayton Raiola is also in the 2026 class. He was one of the first offers at the position. Case Vanden Bosch, a legacy, has also been offered but none of the in-state prospects yet. Jett Thomalla is a name to watch there.

Nebraska Cornhuskers diamond roundup

The Huskers baseball team took two of three games from Minnesota over the weekend, but a 6-2 loss on Sunday dropped them back into second place in the Big Ten standings.

Nebraska baseball is 30-16, but 12-6 in the Big Ten, which is one game behind Illinois and tied with Purdue. Indiana comes to Lincoln for a critical three-game series before a road trip to Michigan State. Winning both series is essential but might not be enough.

However, it’s fun to see the Huskers still in contention for a Big Ten championship. If they win it and the tournament title, it’s very possible that they will host a regional. Minnesota got the 6-2 win on Sunday though. Will Walsh fell to 4-4 after giving up three runs on four hits in just over two innings. Josh Caron had two hits and a double in defeat.

After clinching a first-round bye in the Big Ten softball tournament this week, the Nebraska Cornhuskers dropped the third game of their series against Minnesota, 7-5. The Gophers had 16 hits in the win. Sydney Gray, Ava Bredwell, Bella Bacon, and Katelyn Caneda all had two hits in the loss. Sarah Harness was credited with the loss after allowing six runs in 4.2 innings of work.

Nebraska is the No. 4 seed for the Big Ten tournament and will take on the winner of Minnesota and Illinois.
