Nebraska Football: Top in-state target for 2024 visits for scrimmage



Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Top 2024 recruiting target Isaiah McMorris was on hand for the Nebraska football scrimmage, which is a positive for the Huskers.

There are a couple of really talented wide receivers in the state of Nebraska in the 2024 recruiting class and both of them have recently gotten crystal ball projections to other programs.

Isaiah McMorris, a three-star wideout ranked in the top 500 of the 247 Sports composite rankings is one of them. McMorris is 6-foot, 168 pounds, and ranked 493 overall, as well as third in the state of Nebraska. He’s also a top target for Nebraska football and Matt Rhule.

McMorris was on campus last month, which seemed like a good sign for Nebraska football. However, McMorris has taken visits to Oklahoma since then and the Sooners have picked up two crystal ball projections for the wideout since then.

It might not be a reason to panic. But it is worrisome and I believe Rhule was referencing McMorris, among others, when he said the narrative surrounding Garrett McGuire was hurting the Huskers on the recruiting trail.

Rhule was trying to call out that narrative and you saw a number of wide receivers talk about McGuire as a coach this week including Josh Fleeks and Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda.

Nebraska football gets top WR target on campus

It might not be connected at all but Nebraska football was able to get McMorris back on campus Saturday for the Huskers’ final scrimmage before their spring game next Saturday.

McMorris posted a photo on Twitter that’s clearly of him at Lincoln Memorial Stadium. You can see the team dressed out and officials in the background.

This is the fourth visit by McMorris to Nebraska and the third since Rhule took over as head coach. Hopefully, this can reverse the trend of Oklahoma in this recruitment. The Huskers are the leader according to the On3 prediction machine but there haven’t been any expert projections at this point outside of the crystal balls for OU.

At any rate, this is a positive step for the Huskers and hopefully, it can lead to turning around this recruitment.
