The 2024 recruiting blitz in the Sunshine State continued for Nebraska football on Wednesday, as they were able to land another talented corner in Amare Sanders. Sanders made his decision to join the program on Wednesday.

Nebraska football had been after the corner since July. The Gulliver Prep product chose Nebraska over Virginia, Duke, Louisville, and Miami. He is the 63rd overall corner in the 2024 class and currently has a three-star ranking.

He was recruited to the Nebraska football program by secondaries coach Evan Cooper, and is the 29th commitment for Nebraska football in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

What can he bring to Nebraska Football?

Sanders is a physically gifted corner. He measures in at six-site-two, 175 pounds. Sanders is extremely quick off the snap. He has tremendous athletic ability, and that allows him to make plays quickly. He played a lot on the outside at Gulliver Prep, and his physicality was notable.

His aggressiveness and willingness to come down and make ahead was extremely notable. This is something that is being asked of all Nebraska football defenders in Tony White’s defense. Sanders will fit well for the Huskers in that regard.  The Huskers have recruited aggressive players on the defensive side of the football, and it’s what’s going to be needed as the Big Ten enters new territory with new teams coming in.

This secondary class is really good, and Sanders will certainly add to it. It will also continue the Florida flare that the 2024 class has as well. The Huskers have really made the state of Florida a point of emphasis in recruiting. Nebraska has tried this before, particularly during the Scott Frost era. Unfortunately, it did not work out.

With that being said recruits are beginning to see the vision that Matt Rhule is trying to put together. Sanders is going to be a big part of that.
