Nebraska football projected to land another 2024 defender

Don’t look now but Nebraska football has been projected to land another 2024 recruit ahead of National Signing Day.

Nebraska football is expected to get good news this week from three-star EDGE recruit Keona Wilhite ahead of National Signing Day and that might not be the only commitment for the Huskers on Wednesday.

Wilhite is a three-star EDGE who was trending to UCLA before the expert projections flipped to Nebraska football, in part because of the NFL rumors surrounding Bruins head coach Chip Kelly.

The other 2024 target to watch on Wednesday is three-star safety Kahmir Prescott. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound safety out of Philadelphia was committed to Wisconsin but re-opened his recruitment. It’s hard to say what happened with the Badgers, but Sean Callahan of Husker Online has made an expert projection for the Huskers to land him on Monday night.

Prescott posted on X that he will be announcing his commitment on Wednesday. He’s ranked No. 723 overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He is ranked 74th among safeties and is the 19th-best player in the state of Pennslyvania.

Another 2024 addition for Nebraska football

Landing him would be a huge boon for the Huskers this late in the process. It would push their total commitments for the 2024 class over 30. According to Callahan of Husker Online Prescott would be joining Nebraska football as a preferred walk-on.

He would likely be given preference for a scholarship and an NIL deal would be used in place of a scholarship for now. The Huskers have done that with other commitments in this class and they are taking advantage of the fact that due to the transfer portal, fewer scholarship sports are available.

Matt Rhule is leaving no stone unturned in terms of roster building and while most teams won’t sign anyone on Wednesday, Nebraska football is poised to add a pair of players ranked in the top 725 overall of the 247 Sports composite rankings.
