Lincoln, NE - Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini and crew are expected to take a full recruiting class in 2013. With five total verbal commitments at the moment, the Huskers will need 20 more to give their pledge before next February – just over two recruits a month.
Currently all five commitments come on the defensive side of the football (2-OLB, 2-S, 1-DE), a trend not likely to continue after 65 percent of Nebraska's 2012 class was defense.
So where are the Huskers biggest needs at the moment? Big Red Report breaks down the top five.
Departing Scholarship Players: None
Reported Offers Extended: 15

Notable: After not landing a true offensive tackle in the 2012 class, it's imperative Nebraska snags a couple future starters this year. The Huskers are likely to start a sophomore and junior at the position in the fall, but don't want to be put into a situation where they are forced to play true freshman in the future. Getting two tackles will allow Nebraska to redshirt both and have them ready to play in 2014.
