Nebraska football will host Caleb Benning for an unofficial visit this week, which is good news for the Cornhuskers.
If there was any question about whether or not Caleb Benning would visit Nebraska football this weekend, on an unofficial visit, there isn’t anymore after a new report by 247 Sports.
Mike Schaefer of Huskers 247 has confirmed the visit. Benning will take an unofficial visit this weekend after the dead period ends prior to the start of fall camp on Monday.
Tuataga is one of the top EDGE players on the board for the Cornhuskers. They don’t have a pure pass rusher committed yet in the 2024 class and the 6-foot-6, 240-pounder out of Utah would be a great fit.
In terms of Benning, Nebraska football doesn’t necessarily need more defensive backs. With some of the DB commitments potentially moving to linebacker, adding Benning to the class makes sense, not to mention the fact that he’s one of the top recruits in the state.
Benning is ranked sixth in the state in 2024 via the 247 Sports composite rankings. He’s also ranked 776th overall, so he’s a legitimate take and his dad was a Husker great.
The point is — don’t overthink it. Nebraska football is expected to host Benning for an official visit at some point via the Huskers 247 article and if that happens, there’s a good chance he winds up in the 2024 class, which is where he belongs.
Big Ten Media days for Nebraska football
The Big Ten will hold its Media Days this week in Indianapolis starting on Wednesday. Nebraska football fans can tune in on Thursday to the Big Ten Network to watch head coach Matt Rhule meet with the Big Ten media for the first time. That will take place at 12 PM EST.
Rhule and the three players that will be going along — Ethan Piper, Jeff Sims, and Luke Reimer — will have their own breakout sessions with the media which will last longer and usually provide more information.
I’m wondering if Rhule will reveal the status of Arik Gilbert — if anything has even changed. Plus there could be some roster news as the Huskers haven’t fully updated the roster from the spring.
Following some recruiting this weekend, the Huskers will open fall camp next Monday.
Matar Diop commits to Nebraska basketball
I broke down this commitment on Sunday night with three thoughts, but quickly Matar Diop is a 6-foot-9 power forward that will be added to the 2023-24 Nebraska basketball roster.
Diop probably isn’t going to play a ton this season. He seems like a redshirt to me, but I like this move long-term for Fred Hoiberg. Diop is raw and athletic, yet this will be a great chance for Hoiberg to show what he can do with that type of player.
Diop won’t join the Huskers on their trip to Spain, but he is eligible for the 2023-24 season.
