Nebraska football to host a 2024 RB, plus more Cornhuskers news

Nebraska football has a new running back target in the 2024 class, plus more Nebraska Cornhuskers news.

Following the decommitment of Kewan Lacy from the Nebraska football program, the Huskers have been looking for a running back to take in the 2024 class.

The next candidate is current Boise State running back commit Dylan Riley. Riley is 6-foot, 185 pounds out of California. The Broncos just fired their head coach, so it stands to reason that Riley would be willing to look around.

According to Bryan Munson of Husker Online, Riley is going to take an unofficial visit this weekend to see Nebraska football play Iowa. He’s also going to take an official visit in December.

Riley is ranked as a three-star recruit according to 247 Sports but is unranked via the On3 Industry rankings. However, Nebraska football doesn’t have any running back commitments in the 2024 class right now, so Riley would be a key add at a position of need.

The Huskers haven’t offered yet. But it seems like that will come on his visit this weekend. If not, then maybe Nebraska football isn’t that serious. I’d expect an offer before spending the money on bringing him in for an official visit.
