During the months of April, May, June and July, Big Red Report constructed an offensive and defensive realistic wish list for the Huskers.
To build off this list – we will continue to break it down by position, after considering doing one giant list. We are still a little too early in the process to break it down by one or two big lists. There are too many players.
With roughly 18 scholarship seniors leaving the program after the 2016 season, Nebraska’s class will likely push to 21 or 22 in February. Of course it’s early and the number is usually always higher the closer National Signing Day gets.
Today we look at the linebacker spot. With two graduating seniors, one four-star prospect in the bag, another linebacker from Florida committed and quite a few highly sought after prospects still considering Nebraska, Nebraska’s linebacker numbers could be interesting in this class.
For this exercise, there are a few guys who likely won’t sniff Nebraska – they won’t visit, but they do have an offer. On these lists, we also list any prospect who was already are a commitment.
