Recruiting never sleeps and here’s the latest news for Nebraska football on the trail.

On the recruiting front, I’m still on cloud nine over the commitment of Caleb Benning to Nebraska football. I don’t care about his ranking, the kid is a big-time player.

Nebraska football would have regretted allowing him to get away to another program. Yet, Matt Rhule and company did a great job of being patient and landed one of the best players in the state, who in my opinion, is going to play like a blue-chipper.

However, the Huskers still. have a lot of work to do in the 2024 class and one of the top objectives is holding the commitment of Kewan Lacy.

Lacy, a four-star running back from Lancaster, Texas, recently told Bryan Munson of Husker Online that his commitment to Nebraska football “was firm” and that he hadn’t decided to take visits anywhere else.

That doesn’t mean that won’t change. There is talk about Lacy visiting Florida, which would be worrisome. But just like with Carter Nelson, the staff is doing everything possible to keep him, including sending staff to see him during the bye week.

A 2025 recruit could be close to a commitment

Nebraska football had a few key visitors on campus over the weekend in the 2025 class. Quarterback Alex Manske was one of them, as well as running back Isaiah West.

However, another name to know is 2025 EDGE Uchenyo Ojata. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound defender doesn’t have a huge offer list, however, he was offered by Notre Dame this fall and took a visit there.

Nebraska has also offered and according to Munson, Ojata was close to making a commitment last weekend. The Huskers have an 87-percent chance to land his commitment according to the On3 prediction machine and it sounds like there could be news on that front sooner than later.
