Nebraska landed an in-state verbal commitment for its 2022 class on Wednesday morning in Millard South athlete Gage Stenger, who originally had verbally committed to Kansas State in June.
Here are three observations after Stenger decided on the Huskers instead.
1. Stenger stacked together a summer and then senior film that couldn’t be ignored.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder worked out for Nebraska back in June during an unofficial visit and impressed on the camp circuit, which is what led to his KSU offer in the first place.
Since then, he’s gone out in his senior season and backed up his testing numbers with strong film. He’s the quarterback on the top-ranked team in Class A who put together a dominant performance against a Bellevue West team teeming with Division I talent. Stenger has shown the ability to do it all on the football field, too.
Nebraska inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud, who coordinates NU’s in-state recruiting, had a funny line, but maybe an instructive one recently when discussing Huskers sophomore linebacker Luke Reimer, who was a do-it-all standout at Lincoln North Star before accepting a walk-on offer from the Huskers
“Shows how good of an evaluator I am as a recruiter, because a guy that lived 10 minutes away we got as a walk-on and he’s going to probably be an all-conference type guy at some point,” Ruud with a laugh.
