National Signing Day 2019 was on Wednesday, and marked Scott Frost’s full recruiting cycle as head coach at Nebraska.
The Huskers have 27 players set to join the program, seven of whom have already enrolled.
Six of the future Huskers are four-star recruits.
247Sports’ composite rankings have Nebraska at No. 19 in the country, and No. 4 in the Big Ten, behind Michigan, Penn State, and Ohio State.
ESPN released grades for every Power Five program’s recruiting class, including Nebraska football’s.
Frost’s haul at Nebraska drew pretty high marks from ESPN‘s Gerry Hamilton, Tom Luginbill and Craig Haubert.
The trio gave Nebraska a B+. The Huskers finished No. 18 in ESPN’s final rankings.
Scott Frost’s first full cycle in Lincoln finished in the top 25 nationally and No. 4 in the Big Ten. ESPN 300 Luke McCaffrey is the QB in the class and is joined by a talented trio of RBs in four-stars Ronald Thompkins and Rahmir Johnson, along with three-star Thomas Grayson. ESPN 300 ATH Wandale Robinson will be a weapon on offense and in the return game, as will four-star WR/KR and one-time Texas verbal Demariyon Houston. ESPN 300 OT Bryce Benhart and three-star OT Matthew Anderson have very high ceilings, while four-star juco OG commitment Desmond Bland will be called upon to make an instant impact, should he sign. ESPN 300 S Noa Pola-Gates and four-star DE Ty Robinson were huge wins out of Arizona. Three-star linebacker Jackson Hannah was a very nice win out of the Volunteer State, while ESPN 300 OLB Nick Henrich and four-star TE Chris Hickman were must-wins from inside state lines. Four-star CB Quinton Newsome and three-star CB Javin Wright will bring height and long arms to the position in Lincoln.
Running back Wandale Robinson, linebacker Nick Henrich, and quarterback Luke McCaffrey headline the early enrollee group.
The other blue-chips are cornerback Noa Pola-Gates, who was one of the more late-cycle commits, tackle Bryce Benhart, and defensive end Ty Robinson.
