Nebraska football will have several visitors at the spring game next month, including offensive tackle Brandon Baker. The Red-White Spring Game is set to take place on April 22. This was first reported by ON3’s Sean Callahan.

Baker is the top offensive tackle in the 2024 class, and is a four-star recruit. He comes from Mater Dei H School in California, and is the third overall player in the state of California in the 2024 class for the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Baker has a numerical ranking of 97 per the Composite.

He has no Crystal Ball predictions at this time, but his offer sheet is extensive. Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, and USC are his top five schools.

Baker is a physically imposing player, and measures and at six-foot-five, 285 pounds.

What could he bring to Nebraska Football?

Baker would bring stability to the tackle position for Nebraska football. He does a very good job of gliding over and picking up blocks. He is quick on his feet, and that allows him to identify rushers immediately. He does a good job in both run and pass protection, but his run-blocking is extremely noticeable. Creating holes for running backs is one of his specialties. This would fit well with the physical offensive style that Nebraska football wants to run.

The fact that Baker is coming back for the spring game is a positive. Nebraska will get another chance to impress him, this time with tons of fans at the game. Tackle is a position that Nebraska is going to need for future depth.

This coaching staff is making offensive line a priority for the program.  Landing a player like Baker would be absolutely huge for Nebraska football. Hopefully, the program can make a strong impression during the Spring Game, and help separate Nebraska from the rest of what is a crowded recruitment.
