While most Nebraska football fans are going to be paying attention to how the Nebraska football team finishes up its 2019 class, Scott Frost and company are also working hard on making sure next year's class is as good as it can be. One way the team is going about doing that is by making sure they shore up the offensive line. Jake Wray would certainly go a long way towards shoring up that front.

Nebraska football going after big-time talent

Wray announced he received an offer from the Cornhuskers on Tuesday night.

It is clear that while the Husker staff waits to see who all signs with the team on Wednesday, they have an eye towards 2020. Nabbing Wray would certainly be a big step towards a great 2020 class.

The offensive is rated as a 4-star prospect out of Marietta, Georgia. The state has been a place where the Cornhuskers have had some decent success, especially of late. On Tuesday afternoon they even secured a walk-on from the state.

Jake Wray is the 13th best player in the state for the 2020 class and the 17th best offensive tackle in the entire class. Despite there being over a year before Wray can sign on the dotted line, the offensive lineman already has a total of 24 offers. That includes Ohio State, where he was committed until December 5. It was shortly after Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced his retirement that the offensive tackle decided he needed to check things out at other schools.

Jake Wray won't be announcing new time anytime soon

If the Huskers could find a way to land the prospect, it would not only be a coup in that they were getting one of the best linemen in the class, but they directly stole a prospect out from under the Buckeyes. Despite the fact that he is now a "free-agent" Wray is likely not nearly as far away from Ohio State as Nebraska football fans would hope. During his announcement, he made it clear that while he was going to look around, he still held OSU as his favorite school. 247Sports also still lists him as a 100 percent lock to head to Columbus.

Jake Wray is clearly gettable and Scott Frost is going to do everything he can to make sure the school goes after him hard. Just how much of a shot they really have is going to be something Cornhusker fans aren't going to know for some time. The fact that he received an offer just one day before the early signing period for the 2019 class kicked off shows that there is one truism in the recruiting world. That is that the cycle never really ends, it just shifts to another year. As the 2019 class starts to wrap up [VIDEO], the 2020 class starts to ramp up [VIDEO].
