Nebraska football is hosting one of the top quarterbacks in the 2025 recruiting class in Stone Saunders and here’s what it means for the Huskers.
It’s easy to get focused on the recruitment of Dylan Raiola as a Nebraska football fan. He’s the top-ranked quarterback in the 2024 class and a commitment from him would be a game-changer.
However, there are other quarterbacks out there and while the Huskers aren’t really recruiting any others in the 2024 class, there is at least one 2025 QB the Huskers are interested in.
That’s Stone Saunders, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound signal-caller out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Saunders isn’t ranked yet according to the On3 Industry rankings or the 247 sports composite rankings, but it’s only a matter of time.
Texas A&M is the current leader according to the On3 prediction machine but Nebraska football is solidly in the mix. Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, and 22 programs total have offered Saunders.
This is the second visit for Saunders to Nebraska football. He also visited back in January. Texas A&M has the most visits right now with Saunders having three visits scheduled there, including one later this week.

Nebraska recruiting a prolific passer
One thing you have to love about Saunders is that he’s been an incredibly productive high school player with 6,620 yards passing to go along with 100 touchdown passes.
That’s with two years of high school football to go. Nebraska football is obviously hoping to build long-term depth at the quarterback position and even if the Huskers land Raiola, they are going to want a quality arm in 2025.
With Raiola, Nebraska football, at least the current staff under Matt Rhule, had to start behind the 8-ball because of the way things were bungled under Scott Frost. Plus, anytime it’s a new staff, it resets a recruitment.
Thankfully, things soured between Raiola and Ohio State. It gave Nebraska football another shot and with Saunders, the Huskers are looking to establish themselves as an early favorite or at least as an early contender.
