Looking back at the month of February, we rank the five biggest winners from college football recruiting which includes Nebraska, Colorado football, and more.
In terms of college football recruiting commitments, the month of February was sort of slow after National Signing Day and it’s easy to see why.
The 2024 class is hitting the next part of the process but a number of recruits are already committed. The Georgia Bulldogs, who have the No. 1 overall 2024 college football recruiting class right now, have 10 verbal pledges, with one coming in February.
With the dead period ending and visits on campus opening up again, things will start to pick up. But there were still some key developments in college football recruiting over the last month and here is our ranking of the five biggest winners on the recruiting trail in February.
5. Nebraska football
Matt Rhule and Nebraska football picked up just one verbal commitment last month but it was from a four-star recruit in Roger Gradney who is ranked 284th overall according to the 247 composite rankings.
Gradney is out of the state of Texas and committed one day after an offer and continues the Texas pipeline being established by the new Nebraska football head coach.
It was also the first commitment in 2024 for the Huskers. However, they have been busy adding recruits for a big March 25th visit weekend which will feature five-star QB Dylan Raiola and one of the top players in the state of Nebraska — tight end Carter Nelson, who just recently has been offered by Georgia, Alabama, and Texas A&M.
Raiola also took a dead period visit to Nebraska football which he is allowed to do because his uncle, Donovan Raiola, is the offensive line coach. The Huskers also picked up two crystal ball projections in February for Raiola, which is another good sign and a reason to include Nebraska football on the list of February winners in terms of college football recruiting.
