Nebraska Football needs another offensive tackle and Jacob Hood could be the Huskers’ next commitment.
Matt Rhule and the Nebraska Football coaching staff have done an excellent job of meeting the needs of the Transfer Portal. The Huskers have added key players in QB, WR, O-Line, TE, D-Line, EDGE and secondary.
Rhule has really upgraded the overall depth and talent of the roster.That work continues this weekend.We already knew Nebraska Football was hosting four 2023 recruits this weekend But the Huskers also host former Georgia offensive tackle Jacob Hood.

But I’m not sure Nebraska football fans should expect him to be a Day One starter. That being said, Hood can start opposite Teddy Prochaska, but will have to beat Turner Corcoran or Bryce Benhart.
Either way, it’s clear that Nebraska needs another tackle for next season, and while Hood has a jury in that regard, he’s a quality addition with starter potential. It will be
