Nebraska Recruiting: New 2022 Offers Out for Huskers This Weekend

February 28, 2021

Recruiting never stops and it’s easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.


The Huskers have been busy lately with new offers. There had been a bit of a slowdown with new scholarship offers recently, which could have been coincidence. It also could have been due to coming off the last signing period and allowing the staff to catch their breath before diving back into to high school tape.

Now the Huskers are back at it. This weekend we saw a handful of new offers go out around the country. The coaching staff can’t get out on the road to evaluate prospects in person but they can take a look at prospects’ film and continue getting to know them via Zoom and virtual visits. That will still lead to new scholarship offers.

One of those offers went to Bay City, Michigan, defensive lineman Alex VanSumeren. Standing at 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, VanSumeren helped his Garber High School team to a 7-2 record during his junior year. He made 63 tackles, 19 for loss, eight sacks and 32 quarterback hurries. He was a Michigan commit but left the class recently.

Georgia has been a fruitful state for the Huskers. Over the weekend, the team offered Grayson High School standout Mumu Bin-Wahad. The 6-foot, 180-pound defensive back attends the same school that sent the Huskers Ronald Thompkins and Mohamed Barry. Bin-Wahad has been hot during the month of February. He’s picked up offers from 16 schools this month alone, including Penn State, South Carolina, Louisville and Mississippi State.

One more player that picked up an offer from the Huskers this weekend was Ohio offensive lineman Carter Smith. The Olentangy Liberty standout (6-6, 270) is now up to 18 scholarship offers. Nebraska became the latest Big Ten school to offer him, joining Indiana, Minnesota, Northwestern and Purdue as conference foes who have put an offer on the table. The Buckeyes have been in contact with Smith but have yet to offer. That would be something to keep an eye on with the Ohio native.

The Huskers will continue putting offers out as the team continues evaluating prospects. This latest batch of offers are to quality prospects who have some good options on the table already. Once players and their families are able to get back out on the road to visits schools we will know a lot more. That will give us a solid glimpse into who is a priority for Nebraska and vice versa.
