Over the past week, Nebraska wrestling has received commitments from a pair of high-level juniors for the class of 2022.

On Nov. 3, Antrell Taylor committed to the Huskers out of Millard South in Omaha. The next day, Nebraska received a commitment from Harley Andrews, a state champion for powerhouse Tuttle High School in Oklahoma.

Antrell Taylor

Nebraska didn’t have to go far to find one of the nation’s best high school wrestlers when they plucked Taylor out of Millard South High School. Taylor won the Class A state title at 145 pounds as a sophomore in 2020 after falling in the state final as a freshman.

Taylor, who wrestles out of the MWC Wrestling Academy, is ranked as the No. 18 overall recruit for the class of 2022, coming in No. 6 at 160 pounds. The junior picked Nebraska over some heavy hitters in Ohio State, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and Illinois. Taylor projects to college as a 165-pounder.

Taylor also has big accomplishments in freestyle wrestling, as he finished runner-up at the 2019 Fargo National Championships. In addition, Taylor was a 2019 U15 World Team member and brought home a silver medal.

Harley Andrews

Harley Andrews hails from Tuttle, Oklahoma where the Tigers have won 12-straight state titles. Andrews won the state title at 195 pounds as a sophomore after falling in the state final as a freshman. Tuttle had nine state champions in 2020.

Andrews is ranked the No. 49-overall recruit in the country and comes in No. 14 at 195 pounds. He was also a Fargo U16 All-American in 2019.
