Nebraska football had a big visit weekend this past weekend, as they kicked off the month of June strong. The big visit weekend made strong impressions on several recruits, including 2024 four-star safety Peyton Morgan.

Morgan is the 32nd overall safety in the 2024 recruiting class, and the 55th overall player in his class from the state of Texas per the 247Sports Composite rankings. Morgan has three schools that are in the running for him. Nebraska, SMU, and Texas Tech appear to be the top choices for him at the moment. Right now, Nebraska and Texas Tech appear to be the ones that are making the biggest impression on him.

Will Turboff of Husker247 wrote a story on Sunday, noting that Nebraska football and Texas Tech have both made strong impressions on the safety. Morgan will visit SMU on June 19. He is set to commit in July.

What could he bring to Nebraska Football?

Morgan can bring several things to the table. He measures in at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, he is a speedy safety. He has the ability to cover, as well as come up and make a tackle. He is not limited in terms of his athletic ability, and has good instincts when making a play on the football.

One of the things to look for when talking about Nebraska football defensive recruits is whether or not they can fit into a 3-3-5 defense. Morgan would definitely be able to do that due to his versatility. He has the skill set that could allow him to be an early starter for the Nebraska football program. Although he is a smaller safety, his ability to cover ground quickly makes up for that.

Overall, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 32nd overall nationally with seven commitments right now. That number could change this week. Nebraska is expected to land a commitment from corner Mario Buford, who is also from Texas.

It’s clear that Nebraska football made a strong impression on Morgan. Right now, it sounds like it’s a two-team race in his recruitment. We still have a couple of weeks until July, but it is safe to say the Huskers are sitting in a very good spot in this recruitment right now.
