Nebraska Football: 4-star recruits added to loaded visit weekend for Huskers

Nebraska football continues to add talented recruits to its March 25th visit weekend and four more four-star recruits are planning to visit.

There are a lot of reasons to be excited right now as a Nebraska football fan and one of them is the work the Huskers continue to do on the recruiting trail.

Nebraska football has hosted some recruits over the past few weeks since the dead period ended, but the Huskers are putting most of their focus on their March 25th visit weekend — the one we have been talking about so much. It’s also when Dylan Raiola is expected to be back on campus.

However, with each day, it seems like Nebraska football is adding more blue-chip talent for that weekend, and on Tuesday, it was reported that four new four-star prospects will be visiting that weekend.

We’ll get into the details for those recruits in a second. But the Huskers have 24 recruits scheduled to be on campus that weekend and 16 are blue-chippers (4-stars or higher in rankings). 20 of the 24 are ranked in the top 500 of the industry rankings.

We also know, judging by what Matt Rhule and the Huskers did at the end of the 2023 class, that when they get on campus, they are pretty good at closing. Obviously, Nebraska isn’t going to land all those recruits, but even if their hit rate is around 25-30 percent, it will do wonders for the 2024 class.

Breaking down new March 25 visitors for Nebraska football

Right off the top, Nebraska will be hosting the No. 1 tackle in the 2024 class in Brandon Baker. He’s out of national power Mater Dei in California and getting him on campus is huge, even though winning his recruitment is going to be anything but easy.

Frazier, the No. 8 running back in 2024 according to the On3 industry rankings is ranked 117th overall and is also from Mater Dei. Jacob Smith is a 6-foot-4, 225-pound EDGE out of Connecticut. Notre Dame is the current leader via the On3 prediction machine. His brother, Jerod Smith, from the same school, who is a 6-foot-2, 255-pound D-lineman will also visit.

The Smiths both have Notre Dame as their favorite via On3 but we’ll see if that changes following a visit to Nebraska football.
