Nebraska national recruiting class update

Nebraska sits at No. 30 in the country in the latest team rankings. Where does that rank in the Big Ten Conference?

With the addition of three-star athlete (projected quarterback) Terry Wilson on Tuesday night, Nebraska moved up to No. 30 in the latest team rankings for the 2016 class.

The Huskers only have five commitments at the moment, but verbals on back-to-back nights give fans hope the flood gates might be opening soon.

With a 3.40 average per recruit, Nebraska actually ranks No. 20 in the country on in the level of player they are receiving verbals from, currently up from the 3.10 Nebraska finished with in last year’s class.

While Nebraska has a long ways to go to fill a full-class and could be on the verge of losing a tight end commitment, head coach Mike Riley and crew are recruiting Top 25 class talent.

When looking at the Big Ten Conference, only Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan are recruiting at a better recruits per average rate.

On the Huskers side of the division, Minnesota currently ranks with the No. 25 class in the country (seven commitments), but only has a class rating average of 3.10.
