Nebraska Football getting visit from four-star Texas WR

Jordan Scruggs/247Sports

Nebraska football will have a little bit of a Texas flare at their spring game this April. 2024 four-star wide receiver Zion Kearney will be making the trip to Lincoln, as noted in a report from InsideNebraska’s Greg Smith.

Kearney is the ninth overall wide receiver in the 2024 class, and the ninth overall player in his class from the state of Texas per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He has 26 offers on the table in total, including from the likes of Colorado, LSU, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. He has taken a visit to some of these schools, including most recently to Texas A&M on November 26.

Kearney had a strong season for Hightower High School in 2022. He recorded 39 catches for 765 yards and eight touchdowns.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Kearney would bring a bona fide outside wide receiver to Nebraska. He measures in at 6-foot-3 195 pounds. One of his biggest assets is his speed. He is able to get downfield quickly, and utilize that speed to win his matchup over opposing corners. As soon as he gets the football in his hands, he is able to take off and immediately gain extra yards. He is a downfield threat in every sense of the word.

Getting a player like Kearney could completely change the offense. More and more, we are seeing downfield playmakers make major impacts for big-time programs. Offenses are becoming more wide open by the day. Receivers like Kearney are a perfect complement to that.

Nebraska football does not have any commitments for the 2024 class right now. This could change quickly, as Nebraska gets set to recruit the 2024 class. Getting a player like Kearney could help jumpstart the 2024 class. However, this coaching staff recruits at a fast and high rate. They could have commitments in the fold by the time he comes to visit.

It will be intriguing to see what comes of his visit during spring game. One thing is for sure, the state of Texas is a priority for Nebraska football recruiting.
