Nebraska football is one of the finalists for 2024 EDGE Keona Wilhite and here’s a breakdown of where things stand.
Much of the recruiting focus has shifted for Nebraska football to the 2025 recruiting class, but as signing day approaches for the 2024 class in early February, the Huskers are looking to add another defender to their recruiting haul.
Keona Wilhite is a three-star recruit according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He’s ranked No. 602 overall and is 6-foot-5, 240 pounds. Even though he’s listed as a defensive end, he would be a Jack linebacker with Nebraska football.
The Huskers have been looking for more pass-rush talent in the 2024 class. Wilhite certainly fits the mold. He signed his letter of intent with Washington but when Kalen DeBoer went to Alabama, he asked out of his letter of intent and was granted his release.

Since then, Wilhite has taken a few visits, including one to Nebraska football. He also visited Michigan State. UCLA and Texas are also in the mix, but Wilhite told Bryan Munson of Husker Online that he won’t visit Texas anymore. He also told Munson that he’s down to three schools: Nebraska, UCLA, and Michigan State.
Matt Rhule to visit Keone Wilhite on Friday
Defensive coordinator Tony White made the trip to Arizona to see Wilhite last week and this week, Matt Rhule will do the same. That tells you how much the Huskers are prioritizing Wilhite and want to add him to the 2024 class.
While I don’t have any inside info, my honest opinion is that Nebraska should have a pretty good shot. Michigan State has a new head coach. That always brings excitement, but Nebraska football can show what it was able to do on defense last season and Wilhite would be great as an EDGE in the 3-3-5 system.
There have been rumors about Chip Kelly going back to the NFL. So you never know where things stand with UCLA but we should have a better idea of where the Huskers stand this weekend.
