While there are more than enough storylines when talking about the 2017 Nebraska football team, there has also been plenty of discussion about the 2018 Husker recruiting class.

It's number four on our list of the most important storylines heading into this season. NU has racked up ten commits for the class thus far. Six of the ten are ranked as four star recruits according to 247 Sports. Mike Riley has said the total number in the class could be around 15 but if Elijah Blades & Deiontae Watts won't be a part of the 2017 class, that number could grow.

The two highest rated Nebraska commits currently are defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles, who committed the weekend of the spring game, and receiver Joshua Moore, who committed one month ago. The class also includes two in-state prospects in Beatrice four star athlete Cameron Jurgens and three star defensive lineman Masry Mapieu from York.

As of July 18th, the Huskers had the #24 class for 2018 according to Rivals and #23 class ranking at 247 Sports.
