While the Nebraska Football coaches are working hard on locking up as many of the best Class of 2018 players they can get their hands on, no one can claim they’re ignoring the 2019 crop. Those who do make claims in that vein can be easily debunked simply by pointing to the developments over the last few days when the Huskers offered scholarships to two of the best all-around athletes in the entire class.

Nebraska offers Kayvon Thibodeaux

The Huskers' first of two offers this week went out to the best overall player on the board when it comes to the 2019 class. Kayvon Thibodeaux. The defensive end out of California announced on Twitter he had received an official offer on Tuesday night.

Nebraska was hardly the first team to offer the 6-5, 230-pound player. The defensive star already has more than 30 teams hot after him. Among the top schools the Huskers will be going toe-to-toe against are USC, UCLA, Alabama, and Oregon.

While he is currently listed as a defensive end, Huskers Illustrated has gotten a close up look at Thibodeaux and are projecting that he could be an ideal outside linebacker for the 3-4 defense Nebraska has now adopted and will be showing off in the fall of 2017. Prying the defensive star away from some of the biggest teams in the country is going to be more than a bit of a chore for the Huskers but it appears they at least have their foot in the door.

Theo Wease is latest 2019 class member to get offer from the Nebraska football team

On Thursday morning, defensive back and wide receiver Theo Wease announced he was the latest player to get himself an offer from the Huskers’ football coaches. While Thibodeaux would continue the Calibraska movement Mike Riley and company have started at Nebraska, Wease would add to the growing number of players that have been coming out of the Lonestar State the Huskers have been looking at more recently.

While Riley has said he would love to be able to pull from Nebraska and the surrounding areas, he also believes the Huskers are truly “America’s Team” and that he wants to and can pull in players from all over the country.

Pulling in a player like Wease, who is currently considered among the best athletes in the state of Texas would certainly be a heck of a coup. 247Sports believes Nebraska will definitely have its work cut out for it, as Oklahoma appears to be a pretty solid front-runner. The good news is Riley and company will have plenty of time to convince him the Sooners are not the direction he should be going for his college football fix.
