Nebraska and Matt Rhule in the mix for the 2025 QB

Nebraska welcomed a big quarterback prospect for the Class of 2025 on Wednesday. Pennsylvania caller Stone Saunders traveled to Lincoln to see what the Huskers have to offer under coach Matt Rule.

Saunders came away impressed with everything he saw during his time at Lincoln.

“This visit has been amazing,” Saunders said. “I didn’t really know what to expect, but the coaching staff was great and the whole experience and college area was great. I was able to talk to Coach Rhule for about 30 minutes just to talk about the ball and the program which was brilliant. Then just tours and pictures and all the other stuff was good too.

Saunders is definitely a QB prospect to watch. He completed 69% of his passes for 3,583 yards with 54 touchdowns and five interceptions in his sophomore season. His team also won the state championship. This discussion with Rhule also left an impression. He enjoyed hearing the new coach’s vision for the program and said getting to know the Nebraska coaches was the highlight of the trip.

“It was really exciting to hear about what he has for the upcoming program and changing the way they have been,” Saunders said. “His experience in college and in the pros makes me believe everything he’s told me and he sees me as a perfect fit for what he wants as a quarterback.”

The quarterback described Rhule as down to earth. Saunders thinks it’s great that he’s a perfect fit for what the Huskers want at quarterback. This visit solidified Nebraska’s place as a serious contender for its commitment.

“Yeah, I would definitely say Nebraska is more in the mix with me now,” Saunders said. “I’m looking forward to developing my relationships with the coaches further and seeing where that goes, but I will definitely be coming back to Nebraska.”

Next up for Saunders is a visit to Kentucky this weekend. This will be his last visit before spring.
