Nebraska Football to host four-star recruit with NFL lineage



Nebraska Football

Nebraska football  will have a visitor at their first spring practice on Monday morning. 2024 four-star edge defender Willis McGahee IV will be at the first spring practice for Nebraska on Monday morning.

McGahee is the eighth overall edge player in the 2024 class, and the 17th overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He has an extensive offer sheet that measures 19 in total. Auburn, Michigan, Nebraska, Rutgers, and Tennessee some of the skills that have offered him. He was given an offer by Nebraska on January 6.

McGahee totaled 50 tackles and eight sacks as a junior for Miami Palmetto. This included one game against West Broward where he had five sacks and three forced fumbles. He would be able to bring a pass-rushing presence to the Nebraska football program. He is an extremely solid edge rusher, and is able to get off his blocks quickly. Pass-rushing technique is a strong suit of his, as he can extend his arms quickly and get off his blocks.

If the last name sounds familiar, it should. He is the son of former Miami Hurricanes and NFL running back Willis McGahee.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Nebraska has placed an emphasis on recruiting pass-rushers. McGahee would certainly fit the bill, and he would give the program another strong player at the position. Edge rushers are important. McGahee has the potential to be a solid college football player.

Currently, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class has one commitment in Texas actually Roger Gradney It would be presumptuous to expect commitment from McGahee on Monday, but he is getting a chance to see what the program is like. It’s smart of him to do this, and although it may not be in-season action, it does give him a chance to talk to the coaches.

It will be interesting to see where Nebraska football falls in his recruitment. At the very least, they have their eyes on a solid pass-rusher.
