The Nebraska football team signed 12 recruits during Wednesday’s early national signing period. It fell at the bottom of the Big Ten as the 14th best class in the conference.

Frost says the smaller class was planned as they look towards the transfer portal and Junior College ranks for immediate help for a team that suddenly has holes to fill on each side of the ball.

The spotlight however is aimed at who Frost and new offensive coordinator Mark Whipple will bring in at quarterback.

“We are going to take the best guy that we can to help our football team whether that is high school kids or junior college kids or transfer portal kids. We are taking a look at everybody we think merits a look.”, Frost said.

The next signing day for high school recruits will come in early February.

– Wyoming came away with 15 new signees on Wednesday including three from Nebraska.

The class was ranked just the 8th best in the Mountain West Conference.

Hailing from the Husker state was Omaha Skutt quarterback Caden Becker, Fremont Bergan safety Koa McIntyre, and Bellevue West.

The Pokes also reeled in Wyoming’s top recruit, Issac Schoenfield of Rock Springs.

– South Dakota is trying to use the momentum of its recent run to the FCS playoffs to build their recruiting class.

The Yotes brought in a class of 12 that ranks towards the top of the Missouri Valley Football Conference.

Regionally signing with USD was Custer, SD linebacker Gage Tennyson.

– South Dakota State, who is playing in this weekend’s FCS semifinals, pulled in a class of 14.

One of the top names on the list is Chase Mason of Viborg-Hurley. Mason spent this past fall on the Nebraska baseball team as the top recruit in South Dakota before deciding to return to his home state for football.

A Nebraskan on the list is Papillion-LaVista linebacker Kaden Johnson. Johnson chose SDSU over a walk-on offer from Nebraska.
