Nebraska football got a bit of bad news on the recruiting trail Tuesday night. 2024 quarterback Dylan Raiola committed to Ohio State. He was the top prospect in the class, and a Nebraska target.

Now, Nebraska will have to look elsewhere for their quarterback in the’ 24 class. A bunch of names have been thrown out recently, and one that intrigues me the most is Daniel Kaelin.

Kaelin is a pro-style quarterback. He is the 26th overall quarterback in the 2024 class, and the third overall player in the 2024 class from the state of Nebraska per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He already has eight offers on the table. Among them include Arizona State, Florida State, Kansas, Michigan State, and Minnesota. Most recently, Vanderbilt extended him an offer.

So far, he has an unofficial visit planned for July 24 to Kansas.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Kaelin measures in at six-foot-three, 195 pounds. He is able to stay in the pocket and get the ball out quick, something that offensive coordinator Mark Whipple is looking for in his quarterbacks. In addition, he can move out of the pocket if the pocket starts to collapse. He is quick in his reads, and also shows an ability to throw the football down the field.

This would be an interesting get for Nebraska football for several reasons. For one, he is a local kid. If they were able to get him out of their backyard, that would be ideal. Secondly, he possesses arm strength and the ability to make accurate throws in the pocket. This is something that Nebraska football is looking for in a quarterback. He checks all the boxes of what Nebraska wants.

Bryan Munson & Sean Callahan of  HuskerOnline both mentioned Kaelin as a player that Nebraska football can look towards following losing out on Raiola.  I believe that this would be the best course of action if they are looking for a quarterback.
