Nebraska football signed the majority of its 2019 recruiting class last week.

23 Huskers players signed their Letters of Intent to play for Scott Frost and his staff.

The two lone holdouts are a pair of junior college players: guard Desmond Bland and running back Dedrick Mills.

The group is ranked No. 4 in the Big Ten and No. 24 in the nation. There's also a chance that Nebraska can add to it ahead of National Signing Day in February.

A large chunk of the Nebraska football recruiting class is expected to enroll early for the school's spring semester.

That will give those players a leg up, as they can get started with class and participate in spring football.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, seven future Nebraska players are expected to be early enrollees.

The list includes half of the class' four-star talents: linebacker Nick Henrich, quarterback Luke McCaffrey, and running back Wandale Robinson.

At least seven Nebraska signees in the 2019 cycle are expected to enroll early.

Two are defenders: Omaha Burke inside linebacker Nick Henrich and outside linebacker Garrett Nelson of Scottsbluff. Others include tight end Chris Hickman (Burke), quarterback Luke McCaffrey (Littleton, Colorado), receiver Jamie Nance (Blanchard, Oklahoma), running back Wandale Robinson (Frankfort, Kentucky) and Garden City (Kan.) Community College running back Dedrick Mills.

Mills was expected to be an early enrollee, but did not wind up signing with Nebraska last week. He may still do so, but won't enroll early, barring an unexpected change.

The Huskers did land and sign three-star offensive tackle Brant Banks who is a potential early enrollee as well.

Nebraska's 2019 class should be a very strong one for Frost, as he and his staff look to build on the momentum created late this season after a rough start.
