Nebraska is turning over every rock it can to close out the 2019 recruiting class. They have had a lot of success over the last few weeks and managed to snag Wandale Robinson away from the Kentucky Wildcats after jumping back into the lead for his services at the last minute.

Nebraska also landed a graduate transfer defensive tackle in Darrion Daniels from Oklahoma State University. Now, Nebraska is looking to reel in a player that had been a commit to the Missouri Tigers, until the end of November, in Charles Njoku.

Nebraska football wants to add receivers

Njoku announced on his Twitter account, on Sunday afternoon (December 9) that he had received an official offer from the Huskers. Nebraska is far from the only school that has gone after the big-bodied receiver since he announced he was not fully committed to the Missouri Tigers.

Njoku is a three-star prospect, according to 247 Sports, and the No.

10 ranked player in the state of New Jersey. He's also the No. 56 ranked wide receiver in the entire class. With those rankings, it's a bit of a surprise he's only a three-star prospect, but he is one of those who could be moving up the charts before all is said and done. If his rankings aren't impressing Husker fans, the amount of interest he's getting from other programs should. He's got a total of 15 offers, and, at the moment, appears to be a heavy Miami Hurricane lean.

Charles Njoku would beef up the receiver class

While there has been quite a bit of focus on skill players in the 2019 class, the Nebraska football team only has two receivers committed in this recruiting cycle.

Jamie Nance, who just received his fourth star from Rivals, is the creme of this crop. Darien Chase is another four-star prospect that has a lot going for him. It certainly appears as though the Cornhuskers would have room in this class if they could add Charles Njoku to the mix.

The big question is going to be just how much of a chance Scott Frost and company have, getting into the game this late. If the 6-foot-5 receiver is looking to sign during the early period, the staff has just 10 days to convince him he should be playing his college ball in Lincoln.

That would mean they would need to find a way to get him into town this coming weekend if they didn't want to try and do a sale job sight unseen. The Nebraska football staff is good, it's unclear if they are that good, just yet. Charles Njoku would be a big signing for the program.
