Nebraska Recruiting: FNL and Pipeline Camp Roundup and Reactions

June 16, 2019

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.

Friday Night Lights returned last Friday at Memorial Stadium. Priority outside linebacker target Blaise Gunnerson stole the show at the event, showing off an array of pass-rush moves and a high motor, while spending time with the staff and players.

On Saturday, Nebraska also held its first Adidas OL/DL Pipeline Camp inside Memorial Stadium and Hawks Championship Center. The inaugural event, which Nebraska hopes to make a mainstay on the recruiting calendar, was a success for the Huskers that will have an effect for years to come. 

Here is a roundup of the social media activity from the weekend. 

>> One of the more intriguing players at FNL was outside linebacker Hayden Hatcher who ripped off a reported 4.47 40-yard dash at the camp. He also picked up an offer from Kansas this weekend.

>> Tip Reiman, a 2020 OLB/rush end from South Dakota, had a productive camp experience as well.

>> Kearney High athlete Miko Maessner was back at FNL and set a personal best in the vertical jump. 

>> Beau Stephens, a 2021 offensive lineman from Missouri, enjoyed his experience at the Pipeline camp and also picked up an offer from Kansas after his performance over the weekend. 

>> Defensive line coach Tony Tuioti appreciated former Blackshirt Adam Carriker coming out to support the program.
