Nebraska football has had success recruiting the state of Florida as of late, and it appears that they have another Florida prospect interested in the program. 2025 wide receiver Cortez Mills wants to visit the program in the fall, as reported by On3’s Bryan Munson.

Mills plays at Homestead high school. He is a four-star wide receiver, and is the 14th overall wide receiver in the 2024 class. He is also the 16th overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite rankings. No Crystal Ball predictions have been put in for him at this time.

With that being said, interest is growing in his recruitment. He has 21 offers as of right now, including most recently being offered by Clemson on June 12.

Mills has been active in the Nebraska Twittersphere recently. He retweeted one of Isaiah’s McMorris’ tweets. Mills also quote tweeted Matt Rhule. It appears that he is familiar with Nebraska, and that there is a mutual interest there.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Mills measures in at six-foot-one, 170 pounds. He played mostly on the outside for Homestead High School. Mills was able to break quickly from the line of scrimmage and utilize his speed against defensive backs. Mills is undoubtedly a deep threat. His game is similar to Barney’s in the sense that he can high point the football with ease, and has a very good catch radius.

Mills would be yet another solid addition for a program that is trying to add Florida playmakers in the class. Willis McGahee IV and JaCory Barney are part of the 2024 class. Mills would add to a 2025 class that is growing rapidly. Nebraska football is trying to stake a claim in Florida, and it appears that they are trying to make that a major recruiting area.

It’s a good sign that Mills wants to get on campus. Getting him here during the season would be a major win for Nebraska. Giving him an opportunity to see a game day atmosphere, and the fans excitement, would be a major selling point. It will be interesting to see if Nebraska football will be able to make any more progress in his recruitment. One thing is for certain: the program is definitely trying to do so.
