Two big positives for Nebraska Football with Carter Nelson



Nebraska Football

Nebraska football will host priority target Carter Nelson for an official visit on June 23rd and that’s huge for the Huskers.

The good news keeps coming for Nebraska football on the recruiting trail. On Friday, three-star quarterback Daniel Kaelin decommitted from Missouri and is now trending to land with the Huskers.

That was a huge development, but it wasn’t the only positive news for Nebraska football on Friday as four-star tight end Carter Nelson told Husker Online he will be taking an official visit on the June 23rd weekend.

This is important for a couple of reasons. It was announced recently that Nelson was going to take official visits to Notre Dame and Georgia. There was mention of a possible visit to Nebraska but nothing was set in stone. Now, it is and that’s a really good thing for the Huskers, especially with the timing of it.

Nelson told Sean Callahan of Husker Online that he would like to make a decision before his senior year. That means these official visits in June are going to play a key role in his decision, at least if he sticks to that timeline.

The top-ranked player in the state of Nebraska for 2024 is set to be at Georgia on June 2nd, followed by a trip to Notre Dame the next weekend. Auburn and Alabama, which traveled to see him compete in track, are probably also pushing to get him on campus for a visit (he visited both unofficially).

Another positive for Nebraska with Carter Nelson

Depending on if Nelson adds another visit, Nebraska football could get the final one, and the fact that it’s June 23rd, the weekend Matt Rhule has designated as a big visit weekend is key.

Isaiah McMorris and Dae’vonn Hall, two other elite players in the state will be taking official visits then too, and hopefully, Daniel Kaelin will be a verbal commitment by then as things are trending in that direction.

That would give Nebraska a lot of in-state momentum. With Nelson, it’s hard to get a read on where things stand. Notre Dame and Georgia still feel like the biggest threats to me, but Nelson told Callahan that Dylan Raiola’s decision wasn’t going to impact him.

I thought that was another positive for Nelson and after having this official visit scheduled, I feel much more optimistic about the Huskers’ prospects of landing one of their top targets in the 2024 class.
