Podcast: What Nebraska Football’s O-line could look like and more



With another transfer addition to the offensive line, we analyze what the starting group could look like for Nebraska football in 2023, offer more thoughts on recruiting, touch on Nebraska basketball, and more.

It was another big week for Nebraska football on the recruiting trail as the Huskers landed another key offensive lineman from the transfer portal.

There were some misses this week too. However, Matt Rhule and the Huskers pulled off a big win by landing Walter Rouse who entered the portal from Stanford. He’s 6-foot-6 and has played over 2,000 snaps in college. He’s been honorable mention All-Pac-12 and is someone that you can expect to start somewhere along the offensive line.

It makes sense to me to keep Rouse at left tackle. He’s a proven commodity there. I also like the idea of moving Teddy Prochazka to the right side. Either way, I feel confident both of those guys will be in Nebraska football’s starting five next season.

Ben Scott is another after he transferred from Arizona State. Nebraska football didn’t have a starting center after Trent Hixson used his eligibility and Scott was a major pickup.

When you toss in Nouredin Nouili, who is returning from suspension, Ethan Piper, Henry Lutovsky, Turner Corcoran, and Bryce Benhart, you have a lot of experience.

Determining the five best will be up to Rhule and Donovan Raiola but on our latest episode of the Husker Big Red Podcast/Video series with Danny Jaillet of the, we offer our thoughts on the starting offensive line.

We also look ahead to what Nebraska football could do this weekend now that the recruiting dead period is over. Of course, we touch on Dylan Raiola and also talk about some Nebraska basketball.

The Huskers play Purdue tonight and are a -14.5 underdog without Juwan Gary. It’s going to be an uphill battle for Nebraska against the third-ranked Boilermakers. Here’s the podcast:
