Matt Rhule’s Texas ties are bringing another lineman to The Good Life.
Composite 3-star offensive lineman Gibson Pyle from Klein Cain in Houston committed to Nebraska on Saturday. He’s the seventh recruit from Texas to commit to Nebraska since Rhule took over (not including Riley Van Poppel, who committed to the 2023 class before Rhule arrived).

Pyle is a 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive tackle who garnered offers from across the country because of his quick feet and physicality. Nebraska entered the fray late for Pyle, offering him back in January. The program continued to stand out even as he took visits to Cal and Stanford. Pyle visited Memorial Stadium in early March and returned for Junior Day on March 25.
He’s earned all-district honors the last two seasons and is listed as a top-50 lineman prospect from Texas.
Pyle is the second known commitment in Nebraska’s 2024 recruiting class, following the Altair, Texas, 4-star receiver Roger Gradney. He’s the first lineman to commit in the class.
Before his decision, Nebraska ranked No. 49 in the industry team rankings.
