The Nebraska football team has joined the fight for one of the best players in the entire 2020 class. Marcus Rosemy is a five-star wide receiver, who, should he somehow pick the Huskers, would be one of the highest rated players the Cornhuskers have reeled in since the recruiting services started keeping track of things like that. Rosemy is not only the top-ranked player in the entire state of Florida, but he's also the fifth-ranked receiver in the entire 2020 class, according to the 247 Composite rankings. Scott Frost and company officially took a chance that they might be able to reel in this blue-chip talent with an offer earlier in the week.

Wide receiver is a position Nebraska team 'all-in' on

After entering the 2018 campaign thinking they had a very deep wide receiver corps, it's clear the Husker coaching staff believes the position is one that needs to be reloaded. The staff has been dishing out offers to receivers left and right, all over the country. What has been noticeable is that most of the offers have been going to very talented players.

Guys like Brenden Rice are not the type that is going to commit to Nebraska hours after an offer. It's going to be a fight to land them. The Cornhuskers appear ready to enter those fights this year.

The fight to land Marcus Rosemy is going to be more than a little difficult.

The Florida prospect is getting offers from the best programs in the country. He's the 29th best player in the entire class, at any position. The Huskers recruiting mojo might be on the uptick after a pretty good go-round so far in the 2019 class. It's hard to know whether the mojo is now so good that it's going to be able to start bringing in a slew of 5-star players.

Marcus Rosemy has his pick of the litter

The Nebraska football team appears to have started a new slew of offers from Power 5 programs.

On Wednesday alone, the receiver got three more official offers from Baylor, Auburn, and North Carolina State. He can add those to the 20 offers he was already carrying, coming into the day. Rosemy has suitors like Florida, Georgia, Florida State, Penn State, and Ohio State.

It's those last two that make the pursuit of the player that much more interesting.

Since Scott Frost returned to Lincoln, he's managed to make his Nebraska football team one of the best in the Big Ten in recruiting. When talking about the top recruiting classes in the conference, the conversation usually turns to the Huskers, Ohio State, and Penn State, as well as Michigan. If Frost did manage to reel in Rosemy, it would be interesting to see if that is the beginning of the program overtaking the "big boys" of the Big Ten.
