Nebraska Cornhuskers: Can New Recruit Lead Huskers To New Heights?

The Nebraska Cornhuskers signed their newest commit over the weekend, Johnny Stanton. Stanton, a 6’2″ 220 lb quarterback from Rancho Santa Margarita, California, has already been labeled as the quarterback for the future for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers have had steady play at that position for many years, but are lacking a big time playmaker capable of taking them to the next level.

With Stanton, the Cornhuskers might have found an unpolished sleeper, but his stock is expected to rise quickly. Stanton’s recruitment is not only going to bring a big time player to the position, but he could in turn do what Michael Rose did for the Huskers last season. Stanton is already planning on getting some help coming into next season, much the same way Rose helped bring in fellow future teammates.

Nebraska has already jumped up the recruiting rankings on many different sites. Stanton may not be as highly rated as other Husker recruiting targets, but he could become a better player than all of them in the long run.

Stanton is a duel-threat quarterback, who is extremely athletic, and is good at throwing on the run. The Huskers quarterback issues are known, as Taylor Martinez, who helped recruit Stanton, has been getting help for his throwing motion. Eventually, Stanton will also need help, but he more polished than Martinez is when he came to Lincoln.

Stanton will more than likely redshirt this fall, which means he could have four years at the helm of the Husker offense. Tim Beck has done a find job recruiting so far, and this could be his biggest signing yet.
