The Nebraska Cornhuskers signed a class of 24 players Wednesday. ranked the class 32nd in the nation.

Head coach Bo Pelini says he’s not concerned about where the college recruiting services ranked the Husker class.

At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Pelini said, "Look at the rosters from the Super Bowl. There are very few five-stars, very few four-stars. There are lots of three-stars, lots of two-stars, lots of guys who were unranked. I feel good about the potential of this group. It's our job to develop them into what we saw when we recruited them in the first place."

National Rankings (Rivals 32; Scout 34)

Best in class: Monte Harrison, WR, Lee's Summit, Mo. He's a dynamic athlete who led his West High team to a state championship. The question is whether he'll show up in Lincoln or turn pro in baseball. A speedy and strong-armed outfielder, he's pegged as a top-50 MLB draft pick.

Best of the rest: Tanner Farmer, OL, Highland, Ill. He made an impressive showing at the Under Armour All-Star Game and is ranked among the best offensive line prospects in the country. He and fellow O-lineman D.J. Foster out of Lincoln will make bids for early playing time.

Late addition: Mikale Wilbon, RB, Chicago. He flipped from Vanderbilt after James Franklin took the Penn State coaching job. He's been injury prone but has the tools to be a great one.

One that got away: Blake McClain, DL, Jacksonville, Fla. He flipped twice down the stretch, de-committing from Florida State, pledging to Nebraska and signing with South Carolina.

NOTE: Nebraska secured verbal commitments from a half-dozen players in the two weeks before signing day, but the strong finish was mitigated by the loss of McClain and three others who went elsewhere.
