Breaking down positives for Nebraska Football, basketball recruiting



In our latest episode of the Husker Big Red Podcast, we analyze the recruiting success of Nebraska football and basketball this week.

There was no doubt that Nebraska football needed a pick-me-up on the recruiting trail and the Huskers got it this week with the commitment of Ashton Murphy. 

In our last episode, we talked about a run of negative news for the Huskers on the recruiting trail, so it was good to see Matt Rhule and Nebraska football get back on track.

That doesn’t mean that everything is going well for Nebraska football. Things are still pretty murky with Dylan Raiola and the Huskers haven’t gotten another visit scheduled.

However, USC and Oregon are starting to focus on other quarterbacks, meaning it really does seem to be down to Nebraska football and Georgia.

The coaching staff also extended a new in-state offer this week, plus Nebraska will host a pair of four-star recruits this weekend. It was also a good week for Nebraska basketball. The Huskers picked up two key transfer portal additions in big man Rienk Mast and wing Brice Williams. 

I’ve talked about how much I wanted Williams. I feel like he’s a really good fit for this roster. Danny and I analyze both of these moves and also preview an important weekend in which Latrell Wrightsell will visit. So will 2023 recruit Brady Dunlap, a player Nebraska made the top five for on Friday.

The Huskers have two scholarships and feel far from done. Here is the link you Youtube for the full video and here’s the podcast if you prefer the audio. Go Big Red!
