The Nebraska Football team is having a nice little run to finish up its 2017 recruiting class. The Huskers stole a wide receiver away from Ohio State earlier this month, then grabbed another receiver from Oregon State. Now, the the team has grabbed a tight end away from several other Big Ten schools who were hot on his heels.

Hoosier State's best

The Nebraska football team got the commitment of one of the state of Indiana's best players on Sunday afternoon, apparently seeing that the team was having some real success building offensive talent up in January.

Kurt Rafdal is one that had been getting quite a few looks from some of the country's best schools, despite the fact he was relatively low-ranked when it came to the star system. Rafdal is rated as a three-star tight end and is the eighth-ranked player in the state of Indiana. Rafdal is also considered the 32nd ranked tight end in the entire 2017 class.

Rafdal stolen away from other Big Ten schools

The Nebraska football coaches are likely popping champagne corks over the commitment of Kurt Rafdal, considering that they can report that they got him away from schools like up-and-coming Indiana and the Iowa Hawkeyes. The win over the Hawkeyes has to be especially nice for Mike Riley and company, considering their struggles to beat Iowa on the field since the head coach arrived in Lincoln.

Rafdal took to Twitter in order to announce that he was going to be a Cornhusker, and posted pictures of himself done up to look as though he were wearing NU's red and white.

While there is always the chance that a recruit can change their mind, National Signing day is just days away, which means it's going to take a big time turnaround in order for the tight end to be playing for anyone besides the Nebraska football team. Kurt Rafdal is now the second tight end to commit to NU in the 2017 class. Both TEs are considered among the most talented in the country. The Huskers have also secured the services of Nebraska's own Austin Allen, who committed to the school several months ago.
