Brandon Baker is the top offensive tackle in the country for the 2024 recruiting cycle. He just so happens to be showing up in Lincoln this weekend to take in the atmosphere of Memorial Stadium on game day.
This past week Baker tweeted out his Top Five which includes Nebraska. The other four are Texas, Oregon, Ohio State and Florida State.
BREAKING: Five-Star OT Brandon Baker is down to 5️⃣ Schools!— Hayes Fawcett (@Hayesfawcett3) September 10, 2023
The No. 1 OT in the ‘24 Class will announce his Commitment on September 24th
Where Should He Go? https://t.co/jhhCUet6Cc pic.twitter.com/qrSsJDL3xK
At this point Nebraska is a long shot. It is still worth getting him on campus, especially for a night game, because you never know how that could impact a kid.
Hopefully Rhule and Raiola have an NIL package that rivals or exceeds those other schools and maybe Nebraska can walk away from this weekend knowing they have a shot. At this point that would be a win.

The 3-2-1: Can Nebraska develop an offensive identity this week? -
Can Nebraska develop an offensive identity this week?
We hit on that and more in this week’s 3-2-1 column with three things we learned, we ask two questions and make one prediction.

Marcus Satterfield and Tony White discussed a variety of subjects with the media Wednesday as Nebraska (0-2) continued preparation for Saturday’s home opener against Northern Illinois (1-1).
Let get this rolling.
Nebraska Wednesday nuggets: Satterfield talks Sims, QBs

Here is a full recap of what they had to say as the Huskers continue preparations for Northern Illinois…
Behind Enemy Lines: Detailing the Northern Illinois Huskies
Saturday marks the home opener for the Matt Rhule era and the 2023 Nebraska Cornhuskers. Northern Illinois comes to Lincoln hoping to crash the party, just as the Huskies did with a win at Memorial Stadium in 2017.
Head coach Thomas Hammock’s squad is off to a 1-1 start. A convincing road upset of Boston College in overtime during the season’s opening weekend was followed by a bewildering 14-11 defeat at the paws of the Southern Illinois Salukis the last time out.
Alabama ranks first with most players on NFL Week 1 rosters: How Nick Saban has sustained success - The Athletic

2023 MLB playoffs: Clinching scenarios, bracket, schedule - ESPN
There are still weeks left to go in the 2023 MLB regular season, but a few teams -- mainly the red-hot Atlanta Braves -- are already looking toward October.
The Braves became the first team to clinch a postseason berth and followed it up by securing the NL East title, and the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Dodgers are on track to follow. Meanwhile, clubs such as the Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs, are battling it out for the remaining wild-card spots.
When the New York Jets began their long offseason odyssey to motor into a Super Bowl window in 2023, that’s what one high-ranking team official described to Yahoo Sports as the last missing spark plug. The defense was young and promising, with uniquely dominant centerpieces in All-Pro defensive tackle Quinnen Williams and shutdown cornerback Sauce Gardner. The backfield had depth and talent, with Breece Hall striking a perfect balance with budding star wideout Garrett Wilson. Even with an offensive line in a state of flux, the right player lining up behind center could turn the key on everything immediately.
