Future Nebraska football QB Daniel Kaelin had a solid day at the Elite 11, plus a new crystal ball, and more Nebraska Cornhuskers news.

Many Nebraska football fans seemed to be glued to Twitter or constantly refreshing the recruiting website to get updates on Daniel Kaelin at the Elite 11 quarterback competition.

That’s how passionate Huskers fans are. There wasn’t much written about Daniel Kaelin on Wednesday night. He wasn’t among the top quarterbacks listed, but it was reported by On3 on Thursday that the 2024 Nebraska football commitment completed 15-of-20 passes and scored a 43.

Here’s what Charles Power of wrote about Kaelin’s workout Thursday:

“It was a solid session from Nebraska commit Daniel Kaelin. He was fairly accurate in this structured setting with only a few obvious misses. We charted him as accurate on 15/20 passes. The Elite 11 staff score for Daniel Kaelin is 43. I’d add that Kaelin does not have an overwhelming arm, but was able to make some nice throws there.”

A few of the throws Kaelin made are circulating on Twitter and here are some of the highlights.

Regardless of what happens at the Elite 11, I’m incredibly excited about Kaelin as the future Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback. Kaelin isn’t ranked in the top 11 right now by 247 Sports but I still think he’s helped himself in the effort to get a fourth star this week.

And at the end of the day, guys throwing in shorts, without a pass rush, really doesn’t mean a whole lot. It’s not actual football so take it with a grain of salt.

New crystal ball projection for Nebraska football in 2024

Three-star offensive lineman Jake Peters was just offered by Nebraska football last weekend. This weekend, he’s taking an official visit to the Nebraska Cornhuskers and it feels like there’s a good chance he winds up committing.

That feeling is backed up by a new crystal ball projection from Iowa 247 Sports insider Sean Bock. Peters is 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, and ranked as a three-star by 247 Sports, yet is unranked in the composite rankings.

Peers earned a Nebraska offer last week with a strong showing at one of the Husker camps. Nebraska football was the first Power-5 program to offer the interior offensive lineman and my guess is the Huskers land him if they push for a commitment.

More Nebraska Cornhuskers News

In case you missed it, Jordy Bahl announced her transfer to the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Thursday. It’s a tremendous move for the softball program, which now has two All-Americans and a total of seven players that earned All-Region or All-Conference a season ago.

Bahl was the Most Outstanding Player in the Women’s NCAA softball tournament posting a 7-0 record for Oklahoma on the way to the Sooners winning a national title. She went 4-0 in the Women’s College World Series and didn’t allow a single run in her 24 innings pitched.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers were already solid enough to make the NCAA tournament a season ago and with the addition of Bahl, they’ll be a legit contender to win the Big Ten and make the College World Series.

Beyond that, you never know. With an elite pitcher, just about anything is possible.
