Nebraska completed its camp season with a second commitment on Sunday, this one from neighboring Iowa.
Jake Peters, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound interior offensive lineman from Cedar Falls, committed to Nebraska on Sunday, just over a week after earning an offer based on his camp performance. Peters returned to Lincoln this past weekend for an official visit, which sealed the deal for him. He’s a 3-star recruit on two of the major recruiting services, unevaluated by the others.

Over a dozen other programs offered Peters up until this point, including Coastal Carolina, Air Force, Army, UAB and Northern Illinois. Iowa coaches have yet to offer him a scholarship.
Peters is appealing for his explosiveness. He’s powerful (475 squat, 300 squat, 265 bench) off the snap and is exceptionally quick (a timed 5.06 in the 40). He largely played guard last season at Cedar Falls and worked his way to the next level, often finishing blocks dozens of yards downfield. Peters is also a first-team all-state football player and a three-sport athlete.
He’s the first Iowa native in Nebraska’s 2024 recruiting class. His decision now grows the Huskers’ class to 11 recruits, following the decision from Texan defender Braylen Prude earlier on Sunday. He’s the third offensive lineman in the class along with Elkhorn South’s Ashton Murphy and Gibson Pyle of Houston.
