Expect a full Nebraska class on National Signing Day.
With a little over a month until the first Wednesday in February, Big Red Report gives a breakdown of how things could shape out over the next four and a half weeks.
The way we are counting the numbers right now, this is how many open scholarships they should have to give out AT THIS POINT.
14 seniors + Stevenson + Rose + Finnin + Talan + Collins + 3 oversigneees = 22.
This doesn’t take into account wide receiver Keyan Williams, who we expect to be on scholarship once his transfer from Fresno State becomes official.
Do three transfers/departures seem likely? It wouldn’t be unprecedented. Especially after a head coach’s first year.
You also have to consider if defensive tackle Vincent Valentine leaves for the NFL.
Here is a possible breakdown of what is left out there. We don’t think they will reach. But if they go to 25…that means they can take 10 more.
QB – 0
RB – 0 or 1
WR – 1 or 2 (We think two only if you add Isaiah Simmons)
TE – 1
OT – 2
OG/C - 0
DE – 2 or 3
DT – 1 or 2
LB – 1
DB – 2 or 3
ST - 0
