Nebraska Football had a busy day on Sunday as they were able to land two commitments. They started Sunday by landing Texas linebacker Braylen Prude. They then were able to take care of things on the offensive side of the football, landing interior offensive lineman Jake Peters.

Peters measures in at six-foot-three, 265 pounds. He is a member of the class of 2024, and is a three-star recruit. Peters holds an 83 overall numerical ranking from 247Sports. The Iowa native was recruited by Donovan Raiola, and took a visit to Lincoln beginning on Friday.

Peters had an offer sheet that included the likes of Air Force, Army, Columbia, and Illinois State.

Peters is a very aggressive lineman. He has a mean streak that will serve him well as a lineman He does a good job of extending his hands and keeping his feet firm in order to make his blocks. That type of aggressiveness and willingness to finish ways will serve him well. His ability to get leverage on his man is noticeable.

Peters adds another lineman to a room that is full of potential. Obviously, the development portion of all of this is important. Nevertheless, this Nebraska football coaching staff is focused on Midwest lineman to boot.

Looking at the 2023 class, there are four linemen from the state of Nebraska. In the 2024 class, Ashton Murphy and Peters serve as the two linemen from Nebraska and Iowa respectively.

On top of this, Nebraska football is on at the job of getting kids on campus, via camps or visits, and not letting them leave without either an offer or commitment. This bodes well for the future. This also speaks to the coaching staff’s aggressiveness in recruiting. It’s great to see a staff who is able to seal the deal when kids are on campus.

Overall, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 38th overall nationally. Nevertheless, there is a solid amount of talent. The class has 11 commitments overall, per the On3 rankings.

Peters is a bit of a raw lineman. Nevertheless, this coaching staff should be able to coach him up and channel that aggressiveness into something special. Nebraska football has needed aggressiveness in the trenches for years.

Peters is a great prospect for a coaching staff that specializes in recruiting offensive lineman. They should be able to get the most out of him and I can see him being a key part of this line moving forward.
