The Huskers have kept another top in-state target home.
Scottsbluff offensive lineman Brock Knutson gave the Huskers some great news on Monday when he announced that he was committed to the program. He made things public on Twitter.

Knutson (6-7, 270) was in Lincoln this weekend for his first official visit. He told Hail Varsity, after returning home, that he enjoyed the trip and it blew his previous visit out of the water. The lineman was one of a few offensive linemen on campus this weekend joining Michigan’s Amir Herring and Georgia native Bo Hughley.
Knutson is the third offensive lineman in the 2023 recruiting class for the Huskers so far. Right now, it’s all about the homegrown Huskers. He joins Lincoln Southeast lineman Gunnar Gottula and Creighton Prep’s Sam Sledge. Knutson quickly built a bond with new offensive line coach Donavan Raiola after the Huskers offered at the spring game. He got to spend time with Raiola watching film this weekend.
“We got to go into a little private meeting and talked about run blocking and pass blocking,” Knutson said. “He compared me to players that he’s coached and told me what he wants to do with me. He also told me what I need to work on to be able to play there. That was really all we had time for.”
The lineman picked Nebraska over nine scholarship offers. He was scheduled to take an official visit to Iowa State later this month but the Huskers made a strong enough impression to keep him home.
There will be more to come at Hail Varsity on the Huskers’ seventh commitment of the 2023 recruiting class.
