Recruitment activity for Nebraska football in Pennsylvania has definitely increased under the Matt Rule. These efforts can pay off big for one four-star running back.
Nebraska football’s recruiting battle is never-ending as the battle for Cheltenham running back Tre MacLeod. But the Cornhuskers are definitely among his four-star contenders for the 2024 class. Earlier this week, he announced his final eight schools, and NU was among them.
McLeod currently has offers from 10 FBS schools and recently narrowed the list down to the final eight. The most interesting thing that stands out in that group is that he clearly looks at quite a few schools in his hometown. That could be bad for Nebraska football recruiting efforts, and he wants to be away from home while attending the same conferences as Penn State and Maryland (two of his other favorites). It may also be a plus if
In addition to the Huskers, Nittany Lions and Terrapins, McLeod named Pitt, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Ole Miss and Texas A&M as frontrunners. These last two schools of his clearly show that he’s not outright denying leaving Pennsylvania. But it’s interesting that the Cornhuskers are his eighth-best running in Pennsylvania, west of any school his back is considering.
Nebraska football recruits may not have to wait long
Shortly after Tre McLeod announced he’d narrowed down his eight favorites, he posted another post imply commitment was coming soon.
Of course, it’s hard to tell how serious he was, given that it’s not clear if he made an official visit anywhere. Posted when posted. He’s well over that number now and hasn’t pulled the trigger on school yet.
For what it’s worth, On3 believes the Philadelphia back is leaning heavily on Ole Miss.
For now, Nebraska’s football recruiting body tries to keep the pressure on and stands to the last when Tre McLeod finally calls.
