Nebraska football parked a semi-truck outside Logan-Magnolia (Iowa) High School, home of Grant Brix, on Wednesday. Now, he is coming to visit the Nebraska football game against Purdue on Saturday, per Andrew Nemec of SBLive Sports.

Brix is currently deciding between Oklahoma, Kansas State, and Nebraska football in his recruitment. He is the 57th overall prospect in the 2024 class. He is the second overall interior offensive lineman according to Rivals.

Brix’s recruitment has been quiet on the Nebraska front. This is the first time he has visited Nebraska since July 30. He has visited Nebraska one other time this year, doing so during the big visit weekend at the end of March. Right now, On3’s prediction machine has him going to Oklahoma at 48.8%.

A big development for Nebraska football

This is definitely a big development for Nebraska football. Nebraska could definitely use his skills at the offensive tackle spot. He is proficient in all areas of blocking. Ron-blocking in particular is where he can show his strength. Brix is able to get the upper hand on his man quite easily, and push them back to create running lanes. Pass-blocking is also an asset of his. He uses all of his six-foot-five, 280-pound frame to finish blocks and create a clean pocket for the quarterback.

The Huskers need depth on the offensive line. They also need immediate impact players who can help solidify the unit. Brix will be able to do both. Nebraska football already has a solid lineman in the class in Preston Taumua. Brix would be another great get.

Offensive line coach Donovan Raiola is recruiting Brix. Raiola has already landed Taumua and is the lead recruiter for Brix. Raiola’s recent track record is a good sign that Nebraska may be able to land the lineman.

It looks as though Nebraska football’s semi-truck strategy worked. Hopefully things go well on Saturday, as the program looks to make a good impression on one of their top targets.
