Nebraska Football ends busy day with Callen Barta commitment

Nebraska football had a busy day on Sunday, and they landed another commitment on the defensive side of the football. 2024 safety Callen Barta to the program.

Barta is a three-star prospect. He is the tent the overall player in the state of Kansas, and the 156th overall player in the 2024 class overall. The safety was a bit under-recruited, having received offers from Nebraska and Missouri State. He officially visited Nebraska this weekend.

He flew a little bit under the radar in his recruitment, but it’s easy to see why Nebraska football would take an interest in him.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Barta does a good job of being able to recognize a play, and making his presence felt during it. He reacts quickly defensively, and that allows him to break up a pass even if he is a little bit behind on the play. That type of raw athleticism will serve him well at the collegiate level, and it will give him a chance to make an impact in a 3-3-5 defense, that looks to be positionless at times.

Nebraska football has done a good job of getting athletes who can cover a lot of ground quickly. They got a commitment on Sunday from Braylen Prude. Prude plays the same type of game and also has quick instincts. It’s very evident that they identify players that have these traits, and are making that a hallmark for this defense.

The 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class is sitting nicely after busy day. The class itself ranks 33rd overall nationally, and has 12 commitments. It’s important to note that this class doesn’t necessarily have high-star commitments. However, the class has players that Nebraska football has set their eyes on. This is where the trust of the development aspect comes in.

It’s also worth noting that Nebraska football has landed another commitment from a prospect who went to one of the program’s camps. It’s good to see Nebraska really having success with getting kids to camps, getting them offers, and getting them to commit. These camps will help the program find kids that may be extremely talented, but have flown under the radar just a bit.

It will be interesting to see what additional work Nebraska football can do in the 2024 class. They have done quite a bit of work in the month of June alone. It seems to be paying off.
