2020 Nebraska high school football recruiting rankings
Here's our Nebraska prep football top 25 for the 2020 class, last updated September 26, 2018:
25. Caleb Robinson (Defensive Line, Omaha Burke)
Robinson's noteworthy strength and size makes him a future leader for an excellent Bulldog defensive line.
24. Jaylon Roussell (Defensive Back/Running Back, Omaha Burke)
Roussell is a name to watch going forward, as he could transition from a defensive star to a two-way star. He currently makes the most of his limited touches behind senior James Burks, one of the state's best players. Roussell is averaging seven yards per carry.
23. Sabastian Harsh (Quarterback/Defensive Back, Scottsbluff)
Harsh has a strong arm and leads his receivers well. He's also a willing and able tackler on defense and excels as a cover man.
22. Jake Frezell (Defensive Line, Omaha Central)
Frezell has the speed, strength, and size to make his presence known throughout the Nebraska football scene. Look for him to gain recognition as a leader of the Eagles' sneaky good defense.
21. Dallas Rogers (Linebacker, Papillion-La Vista South)
Rogers can do it all at middle linebacker. He packs a punch as a tackler, has the speed to hang with wide receivers in one-on-one coverage, and can read passes well.
20. Aveon Barnes (Running Back/Linebacker, Omaha North)
Lost in the shuffle of a elite Viking backfields over the past few years, Barnes looks to emerge as a focal point of North’s offense and defense.
19. Ashton Hausmann (Defensive Line, Norris)
One of the fastest players in the state with a 4.6 40-yard dash, Hausmann stuck the landing after being moved from more of a fullback role to Norris' lead running back.
18. Marques Sigle (Defensive Back/Wide Receiver, Omaha North)
Sigle has the talent and speed to be a top safety on the defensive side of the ball. But the offensive biggest thing to watch with him is offensive production — especially now that North appears more willing to air it out.
17. Jadus Ellis (Defensive Back, Lincoln High)
One of the most athletic players in Class A, Ellis has the vertical to outleap wideouts and disrupt countless plays. He is the anchor of a surging Links squad.
16. Bryce Kitrell (Running Back/Defensive Back, Ashland-Greenwood)
Kitrell is a speedy, do-it-all back. He's an elusive running back on offense and has good coverage skills at safety on the other side of the ball. Kitrell stars on the Bluejays' special teams too.
15. Thomas Ault (Offensive Line, Bellevue West)
A key cog in Bellevue West’s offensive machine, Ault has ideal height for a lineman and is excellent as a pulling tackle.
14. Mason Armstead (Wide Receiver, Omaha Creighton Prep)
Armstead is a physical presence on Prep's receiving corps who can win fifty-fifty balls with his brute strength and elite instincts.
13. D’Anthony Cribbs (Fullback/Linebacker, Omaha North)
Gritty yet slightly undersized, Cribbs is an extremely physical player who can run block on offense and anchor the Viking defense at middle linebacker on defense.
12. Ty Hahn (Athlete, Johnson-Brock)
Hahn is a Swiss Army knife player who is capable of returning punts and kicks, but can also play receiver and running back at an above average level.
11. Abe Hoskins (Quarterback, Omaha Central)
A quarterback whose talent makes up for his lack of past production, Hoskins has a cannon of an arm and can hit shorter throws with precision. He's also a good runner when the need arises.
10. Reid Burke (Quarterback, Omaha Creighton Prep)
A strong-armed mobile quarterback with a great pocket presence, Burke is the top QB in his class.
9. Isaiah Harris (Running Back, Millard South)
Harris is a lightning-quick runner and return man who has already racked up over 750 yards and 10 touchdowns in the first five weeks of the season.
8. Rex Becker (Offensive Line/Defensive Line, Hartington Cedar Catholic)
Although a bit undersized at only 245 pounds, Becker has the speed and technique to outplay bigger opponents on both sides of the line.
7. Preston Kellogg (Offensive Line, Papillion-La Vista)
Surprising quickness and agility lends itself well to a player who protects the pocket and run very well. Catch Kellogg on the Monarch basketball court this winter too.
6. Isaac Gifford (Defensive Back, Lincoln Southeast)
Gifford is a hard-hitting safety with good coverage instincts. He also has the advantage of having college-level strength.
5. Kohl Herbolsheimer (Defensive Line/Offensive Line, Millard South)
Combining size with impressive speed and instincts, Herbolsheimer is one of the top two-way players in Nebraska.
4. Miko Maessner (Athlete, Kearney)
Maessner is an extremely versatile player who has played quarterback, running back, linebacker, and safety. He ran a 4.5 40-yard dash and may be the most intriguing prospect in Class A.
3. Xavier Watts (Wide Receiver, Omaha Burke)
Watts contains good size, speed, and an excellent wingspan to help in the red zone. He has the potential to rise in the ranks by the end of the season as a key member of Burke’s monstrous offense.
2. Jevyon Ducker (Running Back, Bellevue West)
He's excellent between the tackles and outside runner. Ducker can also heavily contribute to the passing game.
1. Zavier Betts (Wide Receiver, Bellevue West)
Betts has the ideal size for a receiver at 6-3. The four-star recruit averages 18 yards per catch and is leading Bellevue West back into the state championship conversation.
