The Nebraska football team continues to attempt to build its resume under new head coach Scott Frost. While the 2019 class is looking pretty good and could look even better when Noa Pola-Gates picks his school on Saturday (January 19), they've just gotten started on the 2020 class. That start has included making offers to some of the best players in the entire 2020 class, especially when talking about the wide receiver position. Xavion Alford is another page in the 2020 book. Nebraska is working hard to land Florida's top-ranked receiver.

Nebraska football looking to bolster secondary

The Huskers have been working hard to improve the defense since before the 2018 season began. Once it was in full swing and the team saw just how many holes it had to plug, the coaching staff upped that approach. Now it's all about getting young players in every class that will be able to bring a hard-hitting presence in the secondary, as well as the front seven.

Xavion Alford certainly looks to be the kind of defensive back that would be a very big addition to the Huskers' 2020 recruiting class. While he's listed as a safety, he's played his fair share at cornerback in high school. He stands at 6-0 and 184 pounds, so he's got the height and range to be either. Alford is the 21st ranked safety in the class and the 48th ranked player in the state of Texas, for his class. That's why he is being recruited by some of the best P5 schools in the country.

Xavion Alford getting more attention

The Nebraska football team is one of 19 schools that have now given the defensive back a scholarship offer. The good news is that the Huskers aren't going head to head with the top schools in the country. At the moment, it appears the three-star prospect is leaning toward schools like Arizona and Texas Tech. Neither one of those schools are ones that the Cornhuskers should have a real problem beating when it comes to a sales job.

At the same time, there aren't any battles for recruits that should be considered easy, at this point. The Huskers seemed to have the upper hand on a number of JUCO prospects in the 2019 cycle, only to lose out on almost all of them. Dedrick Mills stands out as one of the only junior college players Scott Frost and company recruited that actually signed with Nebraska.

Recruiting is always going to be a wild card. That's why we've seen the Nebraska football team throw out so many offers in the last few days. That's not to say that they wouldn't take Xavion Alford in a heartbeat, should he eventually give them his pledge.
