Nebraska Football trending up with in-state wide receivers

When it comes to the 2024 recruiting class, Nebraska football is building momentum with some key in-state wide receivers.

It was telling about a month ago or so when Nebraska football head coach Matt Rhule talked about the “narrative” surrounding Garret McGuire, the new wide receivers coach.

The narrative he was talking about is probably the negative recruiting other programs were doing and you could see the impact on Isaiah McMorris and Dae’Vonn Hall.

McMorris received an expert projection to USC, which wasn’t a good sign for Nebraska football in its pursuit to land the teammates from Bellevue West, who each rank as top-5 recruits in the state of Nebraska in 2024.

However, McGuire is turning things around. The Huskers have started to pick up momentum again and there are positive signs in each recruitment.

Positive signs for Nebraska football with in-state wide receivers

Isaiah McMorris had already scheduled his official visit to Nebraska football this summer, but now, Husker Online has confirmed that Hall will also be taking an official visit the same weekend, which is frankly huge for the Huskers.

The only crystal ball projection right now for Hall is to Nebraska football but that was placed last summer. However, the On3 prediction machine gives the Huskers a 69-percent chance to win his commitment. Nebraska is the only team with an official visit scheduled now, but Arkansas is a team to watch according to Sean Callahan.

McMorris has a crystal ball to USC but Nebraska football also leads with him according to the On3 prediction machine but the percentage is 58.8. There was talk that the USC offer isn’t committable and if that changes, they would probably be the favorite.

Yet, with both recruits visiting on the June 23rd weekend, the Huskers seem to have a very real chance to take control of both recruitments. And who knows, if they were able to gain momentum there, maybe they could work on flipping Bellevue West quarterback Daniel Kaelin from Missouri.

It might not be as far-fetched as one might think.
