LINCOLN, Neb. - Scout.com released its new Top 300 on Wednesday and multiple Nebraska commits/prospect made the list.
It starts with offensive line verbal John Raridon, from Valley high school in Des Moines, Iowa. The four-star guard remains the No. 24 player in the country and the nation’s No. 2 player at his position. Currently the top 20 players in the country are five-star players and that number should be extended in the future.
Bryan Brokop, a four-star offensive lineman who committed to the Huskers the same day as Raridon, moved up in the rankings, landing at No. 210 overall. He is now the nation’s No. 12 guard and highest ranked offensive lineman in Illinois.
When it comes to prospects, the biggest mover might have been Wichita East high school defensive end Xavier Kelly. A recent Nebraska visitor, Kelly is now the nation’s No. 203 defensive end. The high school All-American expects a visit from Nebraska on Wednesday.
South Dakota Washington prep offensive tackle Matt Farniok, who will also likely receive a visit on Thursday from Nebraska, is the nation’s No. 132 player and ranked the No. 15 offensive tackle.
A target pegged by Scout on Thursday that should be watched by Nebraska fans is Amani Bledsoe out Lawrence high school in Kansas. Bledsoe recently visited Nebraska over the weekend and is the nation’s No. 149 player and the No. 16 defensive end.
Nebraska commit Jared Bubak, who is currently on the outside of the Top 300, remains a three-star player and the nation’s No. 34 tight end.
