Matt Rhule and his staff have made it a priority to keep all of the in-state players home. Nebraska‘s 2025 recruiting class has begun with four in-state commitments. Pierce Mooberry from Omaha (Neb.) Millard North is a three-star recruit and is the No. 90 rated linebacker in the nation, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

Nebraska is keeping Millard North linebacker home. Mooberry committed to Nebraska over other Iowa State, Minnesota, and Kansas State offers. He has also visited Alabama, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

“Playing for Nebraska has always been the dream,” Mooberry said. “I mean, Caden and me have talked about it since we were little kids, playing on the same team. It’s who I am as a person and deep down, I’ve always wanted to be a Husker.

“Coach Dvoracek is great and I am super confident in him. Coach White will be putting me in the best possible position to succeed.”

Mooberry pushed Rhule to voicemail before calling back to get offer

The Huskers offered Mooberry in January of 2024. Mooberry got the call and decided not to answer because it was an out-of-state number. Matt Rhule then texted Mooberry and asked him to return his phone call.

“He said they’re kinda getting back from their vacation and (that they) are looking at the 2025s now and focusing on the juniors,” Mooberry told HuskerOnline. “He said he really loved my film and that he wanted me to be a part of the team.”

Nebraska wasn’t the first to offer Mooberry. He was already holding an offer from Minnesota and Iowa State. The advantage, however, was that Nebraska was Mooberry’s home state and dream school.

“It’s always been my dream school,” he said. “I’ve always grown up being a Nebraska fan and my dad went there so its been a place I’ve wanted to go. Didn’t know that it was going to for sure happen but I’m very blessed that it did.”

Mooberry joins fellow Millard North defensive back Caden VerMaas, Omaha North defensive lineman Tyson Terry, Wahoo Bishop Neumann running back Conor Booth, and Lincoln Southwest wide receiver Jackson Carpenter in the 2025 class. Nebraska has also offered Omaha Westside linebacker Christian Jones, Platteview tight end Reiman Zebert, and Millard South tight end Chase Loftin.

Nebraska sees Mooberry as a rangy linebacker who can do a number of things at the second level. They like his pass rush ability, but they also see him as a linebacker that can drop into space and cover.

“Nebraska likes me as a Will linebacker where I can rush the quarterback, drop back into coverage, or come up and fill a hole and stop the run. It’s a little bit like a linebacker-safety hybrid position.”
