Dylan Raiola dropping dimes at Polynesian Bowl, plus more Cornhuskers news

Future Nebraska football QB Dylan Raiola keeps dropping dimes at the Polynesian Bowl, plus more Cornhuskers news.

Every time I watch Dylan Raiola throw the football, I get more excited about the future of Nebraska football. Earlier this week, Raiola had some highlights from the Polynesian Bowl and that continued on Wednesday.

In a seven-on-seven drill, Raiola dropped an absolute dime 40-50 yards down the sideline. His earlier throws this week were without a defense. But this time, he was able to keep the ball away from the defender for the completion.

Another Nebraska football signee, Carter Nelson, is also in Hawaii for the game and he’s been spending plenty of time with his future quarterback. The two were shown warming up together and Sean Callahan of Husker Online reported that the two have been together a lot this week, which is a good thing going forward for the Huskers.

Callahan also reported a nugget from an assistant coach at the game about offensive lineman Preston Taumua. Taumua is going to start at guard in the game and is a “mauler.” You could tell that by watching the film, but it’s good to hear it once again with the future Cornhusker squaring against some of the nation’s best recruits.

Nebraska football visits 2024 3-star EDGE

The Nebraska Cornhuskers offered JUCO defensive lineman Dylan Christley recently and it’s clear that Nebraska football is seeking another 2024 pass rusher as Matt Rhule paid a visit to three-star EDGE Jordan Ochoa on Wednesday.

Ochoa is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds according to his 247 Sports profile. He’s also ranked No. 2,080 in the 247 Sports composite rankings for the 2024 class. Ochoa has also been on campus before and is familiar with the system after watching practices during the spring.

Nebraska football hasn’t offered yet, but Rhule taking a trip to see him certainly shows an interest. I’m not sure if the Huskers would try to get him on an NIL deal sort of like they did with Alexander Ruggeroli but that could be one avenue to add him to the roster.

Even though the Nebraska Cornhuskers are well over the scholarship limit, it seems like they are intent on adding to the 2024 roster, and Ochoa, as well as Christley are two names to watch in the 2024 class.

Nebraska Cornhuskers cruise in women’s basketball

The Huskers kept pace with the top women’s teams in the Big Ten thanks to an impressive 62-43 home win over the Michigan Wolverines on Wednesday night.

Iowa is still in first place with a 7-0 record, followed by Indiana and Ohio State — two teams with one loss each. But Nebraska women’s basketball is 14-5 overall and now 6-2 in the Big Ten conference.

Natalie Potts continued her dominant freshman season with another double-double, registering 13 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Darian White, the Montana State transfer, pitched in with 13 points and five boards, while Alexis Markowski managed 10 points and seven rebounds in the win.

The Huskers were stellar on the defensive end of the floor, holding Michigan to 32 percent from the field and just four 3-point field goals.
