Nebraska football was able to get a commitment from 2024 three-star defensive back Kahmir Prescott on Wednesday. He officially signed the dotted line earlier in the day.

Prescott was trending to Nebraska over the course of this week. He actually had been on the Huskers radar for quite some time. Nebraska football made his final five list of preferred teams, before he committed to Wisconsin on April 27. He officially decommitted from the program on December 7.

He is listed as a safety, and is the 23rd overall player in his class from the state of Pennsylvania per the 247Sports Rankings. Prescott holds a numerical ranking of 87.

What can he bring to Nebraska Football?

This is another big get for a Nebraska football defense that relies quite a bit on playmakers. He is the perfect mold for safety, especially in the way he plays. He has quick instincts, and is able to close on a play with relative ease. Prescott is a hard-hitter which certainly lends itself well to the safety position.

Prescott’s overall athleticism is something that really stands out about his game. Nebraska football loves to have their athletes be positionless defensively. Prescott’s ability to come down and make plays as well as make plays in coverage provide the versatility that Nebraska football wants defensively.

Not to be overlooked in all this is the fact that the program was able to flip another recruit from a rival. Matt Rhule and the rest of the Huskers’ coaching staff have been tirelessly recruiting from the moment they got here. Just because a player is committed to another school does not mean that Nebraska will leave any stone unturned. This is certainly a nice changeup from the previous staff.

Currently, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 18th overall in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. This class has a nice balance of supremely talented and developing high school players. Prescott is certainly part of that group. It will be interesting to see the type of impact he makes in the safety room. Nebraska undoubtedly needed more depth at the position.

This is just another nice addition to what is a solid recruiting class overall. Prescott’s addition will undoubtedly make things interesting in the defensive back room. Competition is never a bad thing.
