The Nebraska state of recruiting

With the recruiting dead period about to end, where does Nebraska's current recruiting class stand? Come inside as Big Red Reports breaks it down.


LINCOLN, Neb. - With the NCAA football recruiting dead period ending tomorrow, the Nebraska coaching staff will likely be a busy bunch over the next few weeks.

Currently the Huskers have 20 commitments in the 2014 class, with the ability to sign 25 to 27 on National Signing Day, Feb. 5.

Nebraska already has three signees hitting campus this week and enrolling early - quarterback Zack Darlington, junior college defensive end Joe Keels, and junior college defensive back Byerson Cockrell.

With five to seven scholarship spots left, here is how the class stacks up position wise and how it might finish according to Big Red Report:

Nebraska has put themselves in a great position over the next few weeks. With no glaring needs in the class, the coaching staff can take the best guys on the board – no matter the position.
