A positive sign for Tony White and more Nebraska Cornhuskers news

Nebraska football fans are worried about DC Tony White going to USC, but there is one sign that points to him staying, plus more Cornhuskers news.

Thursday was a wild day when it comes to Nebraska football defensive coordinator Tony White and the possibility of him leaving for USC.

There were conflicting reports from the USC On3 website, with one report stating that the Trojans were likely to hire White, while another said the opposite.

It does sound like USC is going to announce the defensive coordinator hire on Friday, which makes it seem less likely that it’s White, especially with some reporting that White will be out on the recruiting trail for Nebraska football on Friday according to Huskers247.

All I know is that if White is really out recruiting, it’s not likely that he’s going to take the job at USC the same day, although you can never say never.

I’d love to see Nebraska football announce a pay raise for White because he deserves it, but as of now, it seems much more likely that he stays than goes.

However, as we saw on Thursday, things can change in an instant, so I’ll feel better once the Trojans announce their hire, or Nebraska announces that it gave White the raise we all know he deserves.

Nebraska football visiting Alex Manske

Husker fans have been talking about transfer portal quarterbacks this week, but in terms of high school recruiting, the biggest fish on the board is 2025 quarterback Alex Manske.

Nebraska has made Manske its top priority at the position. He’s visited Lincoln six times since Matt Rhule was hired as the head coach and some expert projections have pegged the Huskers as the favorite.

Marcus Satterfield and others will be in Iowa to see Manske this week, which is another smart move by the Huskers as they continue to trend as the favorite for the three-star signal-caller (No. 525 overall).

Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball opens NCAA tournament

After bringing home a bunch of Big Ten awards this week, the Nebraska volleyball team starts its quest for a national championship on Friday at home as the No. 1 overall seed.

Nebraska will host Long Island University (13-18) the NEC champion. The others teams playing on Friday afternoon are Missouri and Delaware. The winners will play on Saturday afternoon in the second round to advance to the Sweet 16.

John Cook was named Big Ten Coach of the Year earlier this week, while Lexi Rodriguez was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Harper Murray was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Bergen Reilly, another freshman, earned Big Ten Setter of the Year.

Merritt Beason was snubbed in my opinion for Big Ten Player of the Year, but it doesn’t really matter. She was First-Team All-Big Ten and the Huskers are the Big Ten champs.

The next goal is to win the first national championship since 2017 and their sixth all-time. Nebraska volleyball starts Friday at 7 PM CST on ESPN+.
