With another commitment in-state on Sunday night, Nebraska football is looking to clean up the area for 2023. Sam Sledge’s commitment was certainly big for Nebraska, now they have to set their eyes on some other targets in the area.
One of those targets is Maverick Noonan. The three-star weak-side defensive end measures in at six-foot-four, 222 pounds. He currently has had offers on the table, including the likes of Nebraska, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Stanford.
Noonan has been thought to be a target for Nebraska football for a while now. As Nebraska football continues to make defensive end a priority for upcoming classes, Noonan could be a perfect fit. Nebraska has wanted to focus on the defensive end position for the upcoming classes, and he would be a perfect fit in this regard.
He fires of the football as soon as the ball is snapped. He has aggressive, violent hands, which allow him to take advantage of his matchup. In addition to just his physical capabilities, he also has speed. He is the complete package for what teams look for in an edge rusher, and he would fit what Nebraska is looking for as well.
Noonan will decide soon
According to a report from Abby Barmore from HuskerOnline, Noonan is not expected to announce a commitment until the just before the start of his senior season in the fall.
Elkhorn South pass rusher Maverick Noonan said he would like to commit to a school before his senior season which begins in the fall of 2022. Noonan, whose father Danny Noonan was a Husker defensive lineman, has 10 offers including Nebraska, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Stanford and more.
Currently, the Nebraska football 2023 class is looking really solid. They have a bunch of good athletes, and that will pay off for them in the long run. A commitment from Noonan would continue their quest to lockdown the state of Nebraska.
The more I watch his film, the more I impressed with Maverick Noonan. Hopefully, Nebraska football will be able to seal the deal. Doing so would give them that much more credibility in-state as well.
