Nebraska Football flips Daniel Kaelin to Huskers



Nebraska football

Nebraska football landed a commitment on Saturday afternoon as 2024 quarterback Daniel Kaelin committed to the program. He made the announcement on Twitter.

Kaelin is the 24TH overall quarterback in the 2024 class, and the seventh overall player in the class from the state of Nebraska per the 247Sports composite rankings. He was originally committed to Missouri, and did so on March 13. However, things began to really take off over the last couple days, including Friday. Several Crystal Balls were put in for Kaelin to Nebraska over the last 24 hours. Now, it’s come to fruition.

Kaelin was primarily recruited by offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield.

What can he bring to Nebraska football?

Kaelin is a very accurate pocket-passer. Arm strength is one of his greatest attributes, and he uses it to fit footballs in tight windows. He is not afraid to make difficult throws, and he uses that arm to be able to throw down field, as well as on short or intermediate routes. He is very decisive in his reads, and that is certainly something that Nebraska football is going to need out of their next quarterback.

Kaelin’s commitment seemed unlikely, after the latter committed to Missouri on March 13. Nebraska football put many of their proverbial eggs in the Dylan Raiola basket at the beginning of the year. This is another good job of flipping a recruit. We saw the same thing happen with wide receiver Malachi Coleman. The Huskers were able to flip him as well.

Nebraska football needed a quarterback in the 2024 cycle, and things looked bleak in that regard with the Huskers scrambling following Raiola’s commitment to Georgia.

Currently, the 2024 credit class ranks 32nd overall nationally per the 247Sports rankings. Kaelin is the third-highest commitment in the class.

This was a very big commitment for Nebraska football, and one has to wonder if other players begin to follow suit. Wide receivers Dae’Vonnn Hall and Isaiah McMorris have been on Nebraska footballs recruiting board as well. McMorris quoted Kaelin’s tweet on Friday, and this may improve Nebraska football’s chances of landing him.

In any event, this was a big recruiting win for the Huskers. This is a major addition for a program that needed to find a quarterback. Now, the development process begins.
