Now that the dust has settled on another recruiting cycle, it's time to see how the Huskers fared in the team rankings.

The 2019 class, at least based on rankings, is the Huskers' best in eight years. They finished in the top 18 of all three major services (247Sports, Rivals and ESPN) and in the top 20 of the composite rankings produced by 247. Here's the breakdown:

Composite: No. 20 (fourth in Big Ten)

247Sports: No. 17 (fourth)

Rivals: No. 16 (third)

ESPN: No. 18 (fourth)

Of those services, Rivals has the most extensive rankings database as it first began ranking recruits with the 2002 class. This is only the fourth time in that span that Nebraska has finished in the top 16 on Rivals. The Huskers were No. 15 in 2011, No. 13 in 2007 and No. 5 in 2005.

On ESPN, which started recruiting rankings in 2006, this is the second-highest result for the Huskers, which have only cracked the top 20 twice. They were No. 17 in 2011.

The newest of the bunch is 247Sports, which launched its rankings in 2010. At No. 17 this year, that's the second-best ranking for the Huskers on that site after landing at No. 16 in 2011.

As for stars, 15 of the Huskers' 25 high school signees received a four-star rating from at least one service. And of those 15, five were consensus four-stars, meaning they held that rating from 247, Rivals and ESPN. They were: Wandale Robinson, Noa Pola-Gates, Bryce Benhart, Nick Henrich and Ty Robinson.
