We’ve known for a while that Nebraska was going to sign a small class in 2022. The extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due the COVID pandemic made this a tricky year for all teams when it came to balancing the roster. Add in the first full year of nearly restriction-free transfers, and this is set to be a unique early signing day.
We’ll be here throughout the day to keep you up to date.
Nebraska enters Wednesday with the 56th ranked class according to the 247 Sports Composite, 14th in the Big Ten. That’s mostly a function of class size, though not entirely. Based on average player rating, the Huskers’ class ranked ninth in the conference.
Rivals also had Nebraska’s class at 56th nationally and 14th in the Big Ten. Its average player rating placed the Huskers 40th and eighth respectively.
The Huskers have a few signing day announcements that could go their way on Wednesday, and one high-profile wide receiver who will make his decision public on Friday.
Consider this your home base for our early signing period coverage. When players have officially signed, we’ll move them from the “Committed” category to the “Signed” category. We’ll also keep updating the Reading List throughout the day with links to the latest.
Scott Frost and a few Husker assistants will meet with the media to discuss the 2022 class at 2 p.m.
