Nebraska football landed a fourth commitment on Monday, plus key crystal balls for Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall, and more in our Nebraska Cornhuskers news roundup.

It’s been a good couple of days for Nebraska football recruiting and it looks like things could get even better.

On Monday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers continued to build momentum on the recruiting trail with yet another commitment — this time from cornerback Evan Taylor.

Taylor was listed by 247 Sports as a wide receiver. However, the 6-foot-3 athlete is expected to play cornerback or safety for Nebraska football and I’m all for it. He’s ranked 887th overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings and is a really smooth athlete, even if he doesn’t have the fastest 100-meter dash time.

I actually really like his film as a wide receiver too. He did well with contested catches and that makes me believe he’s got good ball skills. He did have four interceptions as a sophomore.

A long corner with ball skills? Sign me up. Taylor is oozing with potential and the fact he could fit well on either side of the ball is impressive to me. I’ve heard some concerns about the number of defensive backs in the class and Taylor would be No. 5, but this is the 3-3-5 — you need versatile athletes everywhere.

Huge crystal ball trends

Nebraska football fans got more good news on Monday as in-state wideout Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall — two priority targets — started trending with expert projections from 247 Sports, On3, and Rivals.

McMorris has been expected. It’s not a huge shock but he tweeted about a big announcement coming. It’s interesting because he and Hall are teammates. They are both expected to take official visits to Nebraska football this weekend. They also play with Nebraska Cornhuskers QB commit Daniel Kaelin.

There were reports that Hall and Nebraska decided to part ways. However, something must have changed. Sean Callahan and others have now projected Hall to Nebraska. The four-star receiver also tweeted something about a big announcement.

Then, late last night, to throw another wrench in the mix, Hall tweeted an offer from Tennessee. He took an unofficial visit there recently and it feels like he’s really wanted an SEC offer.

So I’m not sure if that will change things for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. But there was a lot of positive momentum with both and we’ll see if it leads to commitments or what these announcements might be. Nebraska football is also trending with some other 2024 targets as well.

Nebraska Football flips local TE Eric Ingwerson after long pursuit

Nebraska football landed a commitment from 2024 tight end Eric Ingwerson on Wednesday, according to multiple media reports.

Ingwerson is the 128th overall athlete in the 2024 class, and the ninth overall player in the class from the state of Nebraska per the 247Sports composite rankings. He has a numerical rating of 86 overall.

This is a solid commitment for several reasons. For one, Nebraska football has been interested in him for quite a while. He received an offer from the program on April 11, and had him and for an official visit on June 16.

Ingwerson joins a tight end room that is already in good hands for 2024. Carter Nelson headlines the room, with Ian Flynt also part of the room as well.

It is also worth noting that Ingwerson played on the defensive side of football as a defensive lineman for Papillion-LaVista. He could definitely play the position for Nebraska, as he measures in at six-foot-seven, 235 pounds. There is the chance that he could play a different position other than tight end. However, his size makes him an intriguing option at the position itself.

There can also be the possibility that Nebraska football could be looking at him as an offensive lineman. The size is there. This staff knows how to develop offensive lineman. Ingwerson could fit well in the positional group.

Currently, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 23rd overall in the country per the 247Sports rankings. This class has a solid high school group, and Ingwerson certainly adds to that. The 2024 class has the potential to be a cornerstone class of Matt Rhule’s tenure.

Ingwerson will be an asset to Nebraska football, no matter what position he plays. Furthermore, this is a great flip by the program. Once again, they have shown the ability to identify a prospect they want, and pursue him until they land him. The staff has done a good job of being able to flip recruits. Ingwerson is certainly a part of that distinction.

Nebraska Football trending towards landing another in-state TE

Nebraska football could be in line for one of their top targets. Tight end Eric Ingwerson is expected to make a visit to Lincoln this weekend, according to a report from 247Sports Steve Wilfong.

Ingwerson is a guy that Nebraska has been after for quite a while. The tight end has been committed to Pittsburgh since March, but Nebraska offered him in April. Since then, they have been pushing to land him. Tight ends coach Josh Martin is currently the coach involved in his recruitment.

Predictions have been made for Ingwerson to end up a member of the Nebraska football program. Notre Dame insider Tom Loy logged in a crystal ball for the tight end with a medium confidence score of six on Wednesday morning. Wilfong did the same thing, with the same confidence score as well.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Ingwerson has a tremendous catch radius, and uses it to haul in passes with ease. He has the ability to get into open space, and run after the catch. His ability to catch high throws in particular makes him a threat in the red zone. He is a quarterback’s best friend, and a player that would be a drive starter. He’s the type of player you can deliver safe, easy throws to in order to get the offense going.

Ingwerson would be an immediate red zone threat for Nebraska, as they look to continue to bring in talent to the tight end room. We have seen the emergence of Thomas Fidone this year. This offense has done a good job of involving the position in its scheme, especially in the red zone. Fidone for example already has three receiving touchdowns on the year.

It will be interesting to see what happens this weekend. From the sounds of it, it could be possible that we see a commitment. This would be a nice get for a 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class that already has a ton of talent. Here’s to hoping the coaching staff can seal the deal.

Nebraska Cornhuskers news: QB updates for Michigan, plus a Christian Jones update

Our Nebraska Cornhuskers news roundup features the latest on Nebraska football quarterbacks, plus an update on top target Christian Jones.

Nebraska football was back on the practice field on Tuesday, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ two coordinators — Tony White and Marcus Satterfield met with the media.

The coaches always give out some good nuggets but the most important topic addressed on Tuesday were the quarterbacks — Jeff Sims and Heinrich Haarberg.

Haarberg started the last two games for Nebraska football and led the Huskers to a pair of non-conference wins over Louisana Tech and Northern Illinois. The running game was the strength for Haarberg although he tossed three touchdown passes over the two games. He has four on the season as well as three rushing touchdowns.

But Haarberg left the Louisiana Tech game due to injury and didn’t return after the weather delay. Matt Rhule said he could have returned but got tight. On Tuesday, Satterfield said that Haarberg was a full-go at practice for the Nebraksa Cornhuskers ahead of the Michigan game.

Jeff Sims is also “splitting reps” according to the Nebraska OC, but Sims still isn’t “100 percent” which probably isn’t a great sign for his availability on Saturday.

Latest on in-state recruiting target Christian Jones

Over the last two recruiting cycles, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have had an elite recruiting target in the state and in the 2025 class that’s linebacker Christian Jones.

Out of Omaha Westside, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound linebacker is ranked 106th overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He also has some crystal balls in favor of Nebraska football already.

But just like the recruitments of Carter Nelson and Malachi Colman, this is going national. According to Bryan Munson of Husker Online, Jones visited Notre Dame last weekend for the Ohio State game.

Jones was also offered by Penn State. Notre Dame feels like the biggest threat by far though and here’s what Tom Loy of Irish Illustrated wrote about the in-state target’s visit to South Bend:

“He loved the atmosphere and environment of a Notre Dame home game and called it the “best college visit” he’s ever been a part of. Between the visit, the effort from the staff, and the push from his friend and teammate Teddy Rezac, a 2024 Notre Dame commit, I like the Irish as a major contender in this one.”

I agree that Notre Dame is the team to worry about but with the way the Huskers have been playing defense and having success recruiting the state, I’d still say Nebraska is the team to beat.
