As the Nebraska football team starts to wrap up the 2019 recruiting class, there is a distinct changing in focus to the 2020 class. The Huskers are clearly looking to bring in some of the top talent in the class with a special focus on the wide receiver position. Players like Brenden Rice have shown some interest in the Huskers after being offered recently. That approach has worked in making the cut for 2020 receiver Josh Downs earlier this week. Now the Cornhuskers have also the Top 10 listing for another top 2020 receiver in Troy Omeire.

Nebraska football among an impressive group

The Huskers have made the first step in getting Omeire onto campus. The receiver announced earlier this week what teams were still in the running for his services. With less than a year until the 2020 class can officially sign, the Huskers being on the receiver's list is an important development if they want to continue to have a shot with the Texas prospect.

Alongside the Cornhuskers, Troy Omeire named Texas A&M, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Miami, Ole Miss, LSU and Texas Tech.

While all of those teams are going to be hard to fight off, one thing that does stand out is that Nebraska is the only school outside of the Southeast that is even getting the 4-star prospect's interest.

Troy Omeire is among the best in the Lonestar state

It can't be overstated how much landing someone like the receiver would be for jumpstarting the 2020 class. He's the 10th ranked player in what is always a talent-rich group of players in Texas.

He's already ranked as the 82nd best player in the entire 2020 class and the 20th best receiver.

Those doing math at home have likely realized that the next class is going to be receiver heavy with talent. Even if it's going to be talent-rich, the Nebraska football team needs to be able to land one of the prospects like Troy Omeire. The good news is that Scott Frost has managed to get a piece of interest from a kid that isn't looking at any other Big Ten teams.

On the flipside, it's going to be quite hard to pull the receiver out of Texas. Having Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech all on this list shows just how devoted he is to the schools that are in his home region. Nebraska has not had a great track record of getting a player out of the Lone star state in the last couple of seasons. It's possible the better success in the 2019 class in general might help the Nebraska football team make some real inroads in areas they haven't had success in the recent past.
