When the next recruiting class is announced, Nebraska’s Zoho is a big favorite


Nebraska is set to announce a new recruiting class on Wednesday.

The first two players will be committed to the Huskers, as well as one of their top three targets.

They are:Senior offensive lineman and 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive lineman Jordan Haney, and wide receiver and four-star prospect Jordan McNeil. 

In a release, Nebraska has the commitment of the 6-3, 300-pound Haney to a two-year contract.

The Huskers also have the commitment from 6-1, 225-pound McNeil, a 4-star wide receiver who has committed to Nebraska before. 

Haney, who has been a four-year starter at the position, is the No. 1 offensive lineman committed to any school by Rivals, 247Sports, and Scout.

He’s also the No, 4-ranked recruit in the state.

Haney has played in all 13 games this season. 

McNeil, who is ranked No. 14 in 247Sports’ composite rankings, is committed to Oklahoma and the Big 12 Conference.

He also committed to another Big 12 school this summer. 

Rivals has McNeil as the No., 1-ranked offensive lineman in the nation, and 247Sports has him as the 6,600-pounder in the country.

He was the No.’s No. 12 player in the class of 2017, according to 247Sports. 

Another Big 12 player, wide receiver/tight end/receiver Jordan Stiles, is also a three-star and the No’s No, 1- and 6,300-pound, respectively, recruit. 

The two-star Haney and McNeil are among the top two commits in the 2018 class for Nebraska, according the release.

The rest of the commitments are coming in for the Husker coaching staff and the Nebraska Football staff. 

Ahead of the signing day, the Husky offensive line was listed as one for each player, but it was unclear which of them would be the two-and-two targets.

Haney has been mentioned as a four star recruit for months, and the 6’4, 300 pounder is one of the top offensive linemen in the 2019 class, according 247Sports Composite rankings.

His 247Sports composite rating is 5-star, which ranks him as one the top five offensive tackles in the 247Sports class of 2019.

McNeil’s recruitment is the first from the Huskies’ recruiting class since former offensive lineman Andrew Jarett, a 6-6, 315-pound guard, decommitted.

The 6-2, 240-pound player committed to LSU.

The 5-10, 185-pound Stiles is also listed as a commit for the 6th-ranked recruiting class, 247Composite ratings show.

Haneys commitment comes as the Huskies are set to start a two year search for the next head coach.

The search is in the midst of its second week, and there have been multiple reports about a potential hire.

The latest, from Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, said that he’d like to hire a new head coach after the season.

The current head coach is the same one who guided Nebraska to its third bowl game in four seasons, in 2016.
