CLASS STRENGTH: Offensive line. Nebraska restocked the pipeline with a number of talented and physically gifted athletes. It's never a bad idea to build a bedrock of talent on the offensive line, particualrly when a number of your starting linemen are seniors going into a season.
CLASS WEAKNESS: Downfield threats. One of Nebraska's biggest problems offensively, particularly after Niles Paul's injury, was their ability to threaten a defense vertically. Nebraska has added a number of speedy weapons on offense, but none (unless Davie ends up at wide receiver) that give NU a vertical passing threat which would stretch a defense and create more running lanes for the speed stockpiled in the backfield.
OVERALL GRADE: A-. Nebraska did a lot of what it needed to do with this recruiting class. Even with the end-of-season slump, NU still asserted itself as a national force in recruiting. Most evaluators have Nebraska's class as second only to Ohio State in the Big Ten for next year. If Nebraska really is back and here to stay, those are the kind of recruiting results NU fans need to see.
