Five-star QB Dylan Raiola has been projected to Nebraska in a new crystal ball, plus a review of the top college football recruiting commitments last week.
On3.com rates him as a five-star plus. He’s a guy that gets compared to Caleb Williams and there’s no question he’s going to be a game-changer wherever he goes.
Right now, it seems like the top two contenders are Nebraska and Georgia. Dylan Raiola has a ton of ties to Nebraska. His dad was a center there that won the Rimington Award and his uncle is currently the offensive line coach.
Matt Rhule has also done a great job connecting with him and when Nebraska football sent every single assistant coach to visit Dylan Raiola, it certainly made an impression.
We know Raiola is going to visit Georgia and Nebraska next month and according to one Nebraska insider, the Huskers are trending in the right direction. Mike Schaefer of Huskers247 has put in a crystal ball projection with a confidence level of 4.
That’s pretty low but that’s still a good sign for Nebraska. Georgia is going to be tough to beat and just imagine the Bulldogs with a truly elite quarterback. The Dawgs could win three or four titles in a row and that’s a selling point Kirby Smart certainly has to be making.
Yet, Nebraska means something else to the Raiola family and we’ll see if the Huskers can covert this buzz into a commitment.
Key college football recruiting commitments from last week
In terms of college football recruiting, it was a pretty slow week, especially when it comes to the 2024 class. There were a few commitments but there was just one four-star commitment last week and that was Jamyri Cauley, a top-200 wide receiver that committed to SMU.
Cauley is ranked 28th at his position in the 2024 college football recruiting class according to the 247 sports composite rankings, and out of Dallas, the Mustangs did a solid job keeping him home.
Texas A&M also added to its 2024 recruiting haul early last week with a commitment from three-star quarterback Anthony Maddox. The Hattiesburg, Mississippi prospect is ranked No. 431 overall and is 6-foot-2 175 pounds.
The other only recruits ranked in the top 500 that committed last week were Brock Jackson, an EDGE that pledged to Baylor (No. 485), and safety Willie Nelson (No. 466), a new Oklahoma State commit.
In the 2025 class, Mantrez Walker committed to Michigan on Saturday. He’s not ranked yet but out of Buford, Georiga, he will likely be a blue-chip recruit, and if the Wolverines can hold his commitment until signing day in 2025, it would be a great addition.
