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.
In a fitting move because it is #WalkonWednesday, Nebraska will host its annual Home-Grown Huskers event at Memorial Stadium. Started by coach Scott Frost and his staff, the event allows current preferred walk-on commitments, preferred walk-on targets and their families to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to walk on at Nebraska.

The evening consists of meeting the coaching staff, talking with academic advisers, getting financial information, a tour of the Husker locker room and a meeting with Frost. It should be noted that Frost is briefly coming off the road to attend the event having been in Kansas yesterday with a potential stop in Oklahoma today. He is expected in Florida first thing Thursday morning.
The event has been successful in the past helping to secure multiple commitments to walk on. This year’s set up is a bit different than previous year events. There is a heavier focus on the players who are already in the walk class judging from the list of scheduled attendees.
- DE Baylor Brannen

- S Ashton Hausmann

Each 2020 preferred walk-on commit for the class of 2020 is scheduled to be at the event. The only two uncommitted targets attending are Johnson-Brock standout wide receiver Ty Hahn and Omaha Burke running back Jaylon Roussell. The event should be a great night for everyone. The vast majority of players there will be starting the walk-on journey together very soon.
>> Alante Brown, a prep school wide receiver, has made it to Lincoln for his official visit. Frost will also be around to meet with him this evening before going back out on the road for a bit.
