The Nebraska football team is having itself quite the recruiting season. After the December 5 commitment of Wandale Robinson, Scott Frost's first full class is looking like it might be the best in a decade. That's big news because if there is one thing that was demonstrated over and over this season, it's that the Cornhuskers are just not ready to go up against the big boys when it comes to sheer talent.

The new staff's first recruiting class, last year, which was built almost from the ground up, after Mike Riley was fired, was pretty good. This second act is even better.

The really good news is that while Robinson's commitment certainly helps, he's not the only important piece of the puzzle. I want to share that Nebraska is the leader, again, in signing him. He was, in fact, just the second player to commit to the Huskers this week. Third, if you count the expected graduate transfer pickup of Darrion Daniels.

Nebraska football rockets up on Rivals

While the Huskers have moved up in all the recruiting services' rankings, they've made a really big jump on the Rivals rankings. The addition of Wandale Robinson got them solidly inside the top 20 at No. 16. Thanks to Ohio State losing two of its four-star commits after Urban Meyer announced his retirement, Nebraska was even able to leapfrog the Buckeyes, who now sit at No.

18 in those rankings. That also means that when you are breaking down what it means for the Big Ten rankings, the Cornhuskers are currently third behind only Michigan and Penn State. They are ahead of West division rivals Purdue (fifth), Wisconsin (sixth), and Minnesota (eighth).

247Sports not as impressed

Interestingly, the service that has had the Nebraska football team consistently ranked higher for most of the season has not given a big boost to the Huskers yet, following Wednesday's revelation.

Still, Scott Frost's squad is ranked No. 22 in the country and fourth in the conference by 247Sports. Once again, it's Purdue that appears to be the big challenger for the division crown when it comes to the 2019 class. The Boilermakers are fifth in the Big Ten while Wisconsin is seventh and Iowa is eighth.

ESPN on board as well

While a lot of recruiting followers don't pay a great deal of attention to class rankings on ESPN, it should be pointed out that the sports giant is also impressed with the Huskers' class. The service has Nebraska football ranked No. 22 in the country, and once again has them behind only Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State in the Big Ten.
