Nebraska Football projected to land four-star Texas athlete



Nebraska Football

Nebraska football looks to be in the mix for a Texas prospect, as several Crystal Balls were put in for Nebraska over the weekend. 2024 athlete Roger Gradney received several Crystal Ball predictions for Nebraska.

Steve Wilfong put in a medium-confidence Crystal Ball with a score of six on Sunday night. Will Turboff of Husker247 put in a Crystal Ball score of nine. Michael Bruntz of Husker247 put in a Crystal Ball score of six, and Mike Schaefer put in a high confidence crystal ball of seven. Baylor recruiting analyst Jordan Scruggs put in a medium confidence Crystal Ball score of six.

Gradney measures in at six-foot-one, 190 pounds. He is the 19th overall athlete in the 2024 class and the 23rd overall player in his class from the state of Texas per the 247Sports composite rankings. 247sports has him as a 90 overall in terms of numerical grades.

Gradney plays at Rice Consolidated High School and is from Altair, Texas. The athlete does not have a ton of offers, but most of them are local. Nebraska, Campbell, Texas Tech, and UTSA have all extended offers his way. He is being recruited to the Nebraska football program by secondary coach Evan Cooper.

What could he bring to Nebraska Football?

Speed is the name of the game for Gradney. At Rice, he was used a lot in the returning apartment, and that breakaway speed was on full display. He also spent time at the wide receiver position and has the ability to make things happen after the catch.

Matt Rhule and the coaching staff want speed, and it makes sense why they are recruiting Gradney. It will be interesting to see when he commits to the program, given that so many Crystal Balls have been put in his favor as of recently. It just goes to show that the coaching staff will do everything they can to find talent, even if the targets are names we don’t know about.
