Top in-state recruit for the Huskers makes top 100 list

One of the Husker’s top recruiting targets in the state of Nebraska has cracked the Top 100 list of his second national recruiting service. 2023 prospect Malachi Coleman has made the top 100 national recruits for, coming in at #96. The wide receiver had already made the top 100 of the recruiting service Rivals, where he ranked #54.

The 4-star prospect out of Lincoln East High School is currently the number one recruit in the entire state of Nebraska. Last year he had 17 catches for 531 yards and ten touchdowns. If he were to commit to Nebraska, Coleman would be another in a long list of in-state recruits that play for the Cornhuskers. Since the class of 2010, Nebraska has been able to grab every top in-state recruit’s commitments, except three. Those three years would be 2012 (Tavarius Bender – QB – Kansas State), 2016 (Noah Fant – TE – Iowa), and 2022 (Deshawn Woods – OG – Wyoming).

The receiver was part of the dozen or so recruits who visited Lincoln the weekend of June 3-5. Coleman plans to visit Michigan on June 24 and will announce his commitment sometime in December. The Huskers currently have seven commitments to the 2023 recruiting class, with four coming from in-state.
