Nebraska’s new coaching staff secured another recruit on Monday.
Syncere Safeeullah of IMG Academy, originally from Nashville, announced his commitment to Nebraska without even arriving in Lincoln yet. He’s scheduled for an official visit this upcoming weekend. His primary recruiter, secondary coach Evan Cooper, sealed the commitment for a second sight unseen commitment in as many days (Kwinten Ives from Palmyra, New Jersey). Nebraska just offered him on December 7.

Safeeullah is a 3-star defensive back who chose Nebraska over Ole Miss and Memphis. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound corner plans to graduate this month from IMG Academy and enroll early. He tallied seven interceptions, two returned for touchdowns, 43 tackles, 11 PBUs, a forced fumble, a recovered fumble and a blocked punt this season. He allowed just three touchdowns in three seasons.
He is a ball-hawk corner who jumps routes and use his wingspan to his advantage. He’s also a capable tackler in the open field.
Safeeullah typically plays cornerback but can drop to safety. He runs the 40 in 4.5, he posted a broad jump of 9 feet, 8 inches with a 34-inch vertical and ran the 5-10-5 shuttle in 4.3.
This is the fourth commit for Matt Rhule’s coaching staff, including transfer portal long snapper Marco Ortiz. He follows athlete Brice Turner and running back Kwinten Ives.
Nebraska now ranks No. 64 in the composite team rankings and still No. 12 in the Big Ten.
