Husker QB target Raiola commits to Georgia
LINCOLN, Neb. -- A long-time Husker football target has committed elsewhere, leaving Nebraska to search elsewhere for a quarterback recruit.
Dylan Raiola, the son of former Nebraska center Dominic Raiola, committed to Georgia on Monday. Raiola is considered the top overall prospect by most recruiting services.
He had visited Nebraska several times with his dad, and he had long been considered a priority across multiple coaching staffs. Raiola's uncle, Donovan Raiola, is the offensive line coach for Nebraska.
Raiola had committed to Ohio State while Scott Frost was still at Nebraska. He de-committed in December, and his interest in Nebraska appeared to be re-kindled after the Huskers hired Matt Rhule.
Two-time defending champion Georgia, along with USC, were long considered favorites to land the Arizona native, however.
The Huskers currently have three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, with Jeff Sims considered the likely starter for the Huskers in the fall. Nebraska also has Chubba Purdy and Heinrich Haarberg in the quarterback room.
