With one of the busiest recruiting periods of the year currently underway, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are trying to bolster their 2020 class.

Coming into this weekend, the Cornhuskers had the No. 13 ranked class in the Big Ten. The best classes in the conference belong to the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Nebraska has plenty of ground to cover in terms of catching those two powerhouses, but it's certainly trending in the right direction. Scott Frost's team has received a much-needed boost in its class in the form of four-star recruit Nash Hutmacher.

Hutmacher announced on Twitter that he's committing to Nebraska. He'll be the program's first defensive lineman for its 2020 recruiting class.

247Sports lists Hutmacher as the No. 1 recruit from South Dakota and No. 46 defensive tackle in his class.

Check out Hutmacher's post on Twitter:

Hutmacher chose the Cornhuskers over several different Power Five programs. Wisconsin, Missouri, Oregon and Iowa State all extended offers to the four-star defensive tackle.

Nebraska has six commits in its 2020 recruiting class thus far. The top recruit for the Cornhuskers is four-star offensive tackle Turner Corcoran.

An impressive second season under Scott Frost would go a long way for Nebraska, specifically landing more recruits.
