Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.
For many of Nebraska football’s incoming freshmen, the next few weeks are their last moments to spend with friends and family at home before heading off to begin their college careers.
We can often get caught up things like rankings, how many players will be immediate impact guys and who are the sleepers of the class. Because of that, we can also sometimes lose sight of the fact that these are young men closing a big chapter of their lives and starting a new and exciting one in Lincoln.
There appears to have been quite a few graduations over the weekend, including a lot in the state of Nebraska. One cool thing that I noticed on social media is that some of the Nebraska early enrollees got a chance to go back home and enjoy graduation ceremonies and parties with their families.
