Nebraska Recruiting: 2020 Offensive Prospects To Watch

February 27, 2019

The 2020 cycle is in full swing now. Once spring practice starts up, you’ll see a number of prospects coming through Lincoln leading up to the Spring Game on Apr. 13. Before we get to that, here are some names to watch for 2020 on the offensive side of the football.

WR Jordan Johnson

The rangy wideout from De Smet Jesuit will be one of the most sought-after players in the region. The St. Louis native stands at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds can be physical but also has the elusiveness to separate from defensive backs. 

WR Brenden Rice

As Nebraska continues to make waves in Arizona, you will start to hear more about the Chandler, Arizona, native. He has hall-of-fame bloodlines as the son of Jerry Rice, but is determined to make his own path. Brenden has good hands and is becoming a national level recruit. 

TE Donavon Johnson

This recruiting cycle, tight end isn’t a huge need so I don’t expect more than one in the class. However, the 6-foot-5, 200-pound athlete is one to watch. The Texan is a good blocker, shows good hands and route running in his tape. Johnson is bit under the radar right now but I expect that to change in a big way. 


OL Reece Atteberry‍ 

Atteberry holds over 20 scholarship offers including Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Ohio State. He is familiar with Nebraska since he came to a game for an unofficial visit last season. The Aurora, Colorado, native would be another significant win in that state should he eventually pick Nebraska. 

OL Andrew Gentry

Gentry is one of the elite tackle prospects in the class of 2020. He stands at 6-foot-8, 305-pounds, and is another Colorado player that Nebraska hopes to make noise with. He has good bend and quickness for his size. It will be a battle to land him but it’s worth it.
