If the Nebraska football team is going to land Javian Hester, they are going to have to fight off some very good teams. After last week, the Huskers are also going to have to fight off some teams they are quite familiar with from the good old days of the Big 8, and Big 12. The Oklahoma wide receiver announced a couple of new scholarship offers to add to the pile from Kansas State and Colorado.

Hester's offer sheet keeps growing

It should come as no surprise that the Nebraska football team is far from the only school showing interest in the Oklahoma prospect.

The wide receiver now has 15 total offers with Kansas State and Colorado simply being the most recent. Considering he is considered the second best player in the state of Oklahoma by 247Sports and the 20th best receiver in the class, it doesn't appear they are going to be the last two schools to come calling.

Hester has attempted to make it clear what kinds of teams he is considering, but even after saying he was going to be announcing his favorite schools, he's continued to have new schools enter the picture.

Such is the life when you're talking about one of the best players in the entire 2020 class.

At the moment, the receiver, who has the perfect body for what the Huskers want to do on offense, standing at 6-3, appears to be almost a shoo-in to end up with the Oklahoma Sooners. There is a chance the Arkansas Razorbacks might also find a way to swoop in and steal him away.

If the Cornhuskers are going to find a way to steal him, they are going to have to go the unconventional route.

Nebraska football could have a bit of an in when shooting for Javian Hester

If there is one thing the Huskers have going for them in the recruitment of this player, it's that they already have one of the best players from the state of Oklahoma from the 2019 class.

Jamie Nance was one who shunned the Sooners in order to come to Lincoln.

It's a safe bet that Scott Frost and company will be looking to leverage any kind of connection the two players might have. It's still very early in the recruiting cycle so it's hard to tell just what teams, beyond the home school, the Cornhuskers are going to have to beat out.

Both Kansas State and Colorado pose interesting challenges.

The Buffaloes are under new management after losing seasons despite better talent than what they showed. Kansas State is also manned by a new head coach after the retirement of their hall of fame coach.

If the Nebraska football team wants to get Javian Hester, they can at least point to the fact they aren't breaking in a brand new staff ... any more.
