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.
Nebraska’s weather was a hot topic in the days before the Huskers hosted Michigan State.
It was quite the chilly day on Saturday and the weather had an impact on both offesnses. But what’s the impact of a cold day on recruiting, especially considering Nebraska had prospects from Arizona, Georgia, California and Florida in for visits.
During his Monday press conference coach Scott Frost was asked about the cold weather and recruiting.
"I was lucky enough to hang on in the NFL for a while. I played in Cleveland and in Green Bay,” Frost said. “Loved my experience in those two places. It certainly wasn't warm there. I think being in the Big Ten and getting to play in this type of football against these types of teams, in all conditions, prepares you better to have a chance at the next level.
“We were kind of lucky. A lot of the guys we had in town, we see as defensive players, and we won a game on defense. Some of them had seen snow, but had never seen snow falling from the sky. So, I think they enjoyed it. It was a great scene and I think it was a great weekend for us."
Just because the season is ending on Friday doesn’t mean things will slow down for the staff. It is planning to be aggressive with getting out on the road next week. Frost says the coaches are excited to sell what’s brewing in Lincoln.
"What's been happening here is pretty apparent to a lot of the people that we're talking to," he said. "From where we started to where we are now, every single parent and kid we're talking to can see where this is going, and can see the progress, see the fan base sticking with us through thick and thin. And I think they can all see this is a program on the rise.
“So, I think that's going to help us when we go out and we're going to try to capitalize on that right away."
The wave of momentum Nebraska is riding will certainly be a selling point on the road. The mad dash to the early signing date on Dec. 19 will be a fun one.
