The #Nebraska Football team offered yet another wide receiver recruit this week as the team continues to attempt to stockpile young talent at the position. This time around, the Huskers went into the Lone Star State to try and pull a player right out from under the collective noses of the large programs that inhabit Texas.
At the moment, it appears Nebraska might have been able to jump the line in front of other good Texas programs that might eventually look to offer Kassidy Woods. The three-star football star has so far flown very much under the radar. Nebraska is easily the biggest and best FBS program that has offered woods a scholarship.
Nebraska football first in line among big programs
Some people are likely going to get a bit nervous at Woods' offer list. The Huskers aren't the first power five conference program to give Woods the chance to come to their campus but they're close. The Nebraska football team is the third team to offer Woods after Iowa State and SMU,
When looking at the competition for Mike Riley and company, it would seem as though they have themselves a player in the bag. The problem is that, when you're talking about players as talented as Woods, playing in Texas, it's a safe bet other programs are going to come calling.
Consistency is key when it comes to the Nebraska football team's interest
One of the most interesting aspects of the Huskers' pursuit of Kassidy Woods is that he's actually dropped a bit in the rankings when looking at sites like 247Sports. The player appears to be trending downward a little, though it's likely one of the reasons he's been dropping is because he's not playing for a bigger Texas school. Playing for Greenhill, Woods has put up almost identical numbers in his first two years of High School ball.
Extremely grateful and excited to receive an offer from the University of Nebraska!!🔴⚪️ pic.twitter.com/iG0paCUn8p— Kassidy Woods (@Kassidy7Woods) March 13, 2017
Nebraska is likely as interested as they are in Woods because the stud football player hauled down 39 passes for 830 yards and eight touchdowns in his first year on the team. In his second year, he nabbed 41 catches for 843 yards and seven touchdowns.
