After starting the season with an abysmal 0-6 record, the Nebraska Cornhuskers fought their way back to respectability, winning four of the last six games. While the overall product wasn't great by any stretch, the future looks bright in Lincoln.

Scott Frost proved that he can efficiently run an offense even in one of the best conferences. However, the defense was lacking the necessary talent to stop the powerhouse programs, such as Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State.

Well, the upcoming recruiting class for the Huskers should provide tons of optimism for fans everywhere.

The best player in the class is four-star linebacker Nick Henrich, who chose Nebraska over Wisconsin. He'll try to bolster the defensive unit alongside incoming freshman Ty Robinson.

Nebraska also added new weapons to its offense in the form of JuCo product Dedrick Mills, who finally signed his letter of intent after going through some legal trouble.

It's clear that Frost wants to improve his team in the trenches, as the Cornhuskers added six offensive linemen and five defensive linemen.

Outside of three-star recruit Desmond Bland, Nebraska has all of its commits signed for the year.

As of right now, Nebraska’s 2019 recruiting class is firmly in the Top 25.

The Huskers currently have 25 commits, and are ranked No. 22 overall and No. 4 in the Big Ten, per 247Sports‘ composite rankings.

It should be an exciting season for Nebraska.
