Nebraska Football makes Top 6 for electric playmaker Zion Kearney



Nebraska football

 Nebraska football made the Top 6 for 2024 Texas wide receiver Zion Kearney. Kearney released his list on Thursday afternoon.

Nebraska football is competing with Oklahoma, LSU, Arkansas, Texas A&M, and the University of Houston. The wideout was offered by Nebraska on December 28, 2022. Kearney had 33 offers in total. The fact that Nebraska is still very much in play is certainly a notch in the belt for the coaching staff.

Kearney was a major weapon for Hightower High School in Missouri City, Texas.  He recorded 39 catches for 765 yards and eight touchdowns in 2022.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

He would give Nebraska a deep threat at the wide receiver position. The speedster measures in at six-foot-three, 195 pounds. He functions best as an outside wide receiver, and utilizes several of his attributes during a given play. He has the ability to quickly get off the line of scrimmage, and uses his speed to get an instant advantage on his defender. After that, he can quickly gain the upper hand on a corner.

Kearney’s ability to make things happen after the catch is noticeable in addition to his speed. Those two things go hand-in-hand. He has all the skills that a program can build around at the position. He is the type of playmaker needed in today’s game of college football.

Currently, Nebraska football has zero commitments in the 2024 class. I personally would expect that the change in the next couple of months.

The wide receiver is going to come up for the Nebraska football spring game in April. This was reported back in January by InsideNebraska’s Greg Smith. It will be intriguing to see if Nebraska football can make any headway in Kearney’s recruitment at the spring game. One thing is for certain: Matt Rhule wants to get as much of the Texas flare into the program as possible.
