As the 2019 recruiting cycle starts its final run, the Huskers are also paying plenty of attention to future classes. One of the best players in the 2020 class got a Nebraska football offer recently, and the school might have a bit of an in when they are trying to land him. Brenden Rice is going to be a hot commodity once the nation has to turn its attention to attempting to reel in the 2020 class. It's possible 2019 commit, Javin Wright could help steer the four-star wide receiver to Lincoln before the smoke clears.

Nebraska football could use a secret weapon

Most college coaches will tell you, there are few recruiting tools that are as effective as commits recruiting other prospects. They have a different view of everything they are shown, and everything they are told because they are walking the walk. Prospects are going to tell other prospects if they sense something is a little off. On the flip side of that, they are going to be able to share details the coaches can't, or won't, that might be the final selling point.

When it comes to Brenden Rice and Javin Wright, there's more than just a prospect talking to a prospect. The pair were teammates at Hamilton High in Chandler, Arizona.

When Rice got his official offer from Nebraska, he tweeted to Wright to let him know. It appears the two are close enough that the Husker commit could really get the receiver thinking about playing in Lincoln.

Brenden Rice will be a tough get

Having Javin Wright in Nebraska football's pocket is likely a weapon the team will have no problem using. Wright's father, Toby, is a former Husker. It's a safe bet that played a part in first securing an official visit from the defensive back and then eventually landing the commitment.

Landing the son of a former Husker is certainly a great feeling for Scott Frost and company. Landing the son of a Hall of Fame NFL receiver would be even bigger.

Brenden Rice is the son of a great receiver, Jerry Rice. That's one of the many reasons the receiver is highly sought after. He's considered the 67th best receiver in the 2020 class and the ninth best player in the state of Arizona. He has 10 total offers and 247 Sports thinks he's a lock to go to Oregon at the moment.

The good news is that Nebraska has plenty of time to lure Brenden Rice to Lincoln to see what Memorial Stadium has to offer. Javin Wright could even be on campus by the time he makes the visit. Will Rice seriously consider a team that failed to make a bowl?
