LINCOLN (KMTV) — On Wednesday, Huskers head coach Scott Frost discussed Nebraska's 2021 signing class. The Big Red added 19 scholarship signees.
"I think it's going to be the key to getting us over the top," Frost said during a Wednesday press conference.
NU signed one quarterback in 6'5" Kearney Catholic standout Heinrich Haarberg.
"He's really committed to being good and determined," said Frost. "I think he's got a ton of raw material to work with to make him a good player."
Frost said there are 13 signees who are planning on being early enrollees next semester. With COVID-19 not allowing official visits this fall, Frost admits there are a few signees who he's only met through Zoom calls.
The Huskers' highest-ranked recruit is four-star tight end Thomas Fidone of Council Bluffs Lewis Central.
"Thomas probably has as much potential as about anybody I've recruited," Frost said.
Nebraska added a few wide receivers as well including Latrell Neville.
"Latrell & I have really bonded," Frost said. "He's a great kid to talk to."
NU also signed the #1 ranked player in South Dakota in linebacker Randolph Kpai.
"Randy's super twitchy," Frost said of Kpai. "Man, he covers ground fast."
Frost said he expects to add at least one more signee before February.
