All-American Bowl preview
Nebraska has three signees and one target in the game. After not having a single commit in the game last season and seeing multiple players pick other schools instead of Nebraska two years ago, it is a welcome change of scenery this week.
Nebraska signee Bryce Benhart
No. 68 | West Team
By all accounts Benhart has held his own this week. He’s been a mainstay at right tackle throughout the week of practices. The work he has been able to do is impressive, especially since he’s about 20 pounds under his football playing weight due to wrestling. Benhart could be in line for a ratings bump after a strong performance this week.
Nebraska signee Ty Robinson
No. 87 | West Team
The Higley High star is the first player from his school to make it to the All-American Bowl. He weighed in this week at 6-foot-6 and 280 pounds, so he certainly has the size to see the field early in his career at Nebraska. Robinson has impressed this week with his hand strength and technique for a young defensive lineman.
Nebraska signee Wandale Robinson
No. 13 | East Team
The electric playmaker from Kentucky has been one of the most talked about players in San Antonio. He has had a great week of practices. His quickness, hands and football IQ have all been praised. Even though he has been rising steadily in every recruiting services’ rankings, it would not be surprising to see him get one final bump. He will leave Texas and head straight to Lincoln for the start of the spring semester following the game.

Nebraska target Noa Pola-Gates
No. 26 | West Team
The Arizona defender is the only unsigned target Nebraska has playing in the game. Pola-Gates is considered by many to be the Huskers’ top remaining target left on the board. Through the week he has shown why with his instincts and athleticism in the secondary. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him make a big hit during the game on Saturday. He will not announce his college choice during the game but will announce during the Polynesian Bowl on Jan. 19.
