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.
On Wednesday, the Huskers will host their HomeGrown Huskers event for current preferred walk-on commitments, preferred walk-on targets and their families. Last year, on Dec. 13, they held the same event and it was very successful, resulting in more additions to the walk-on class last year. In total I believe last year’s event resulted in seven additional commitments.
Currently, Nebraska has eight walk-on commitments and is looking for more.

>>It was made official today that Tom Minnick will leave Arizona Western to be the head coach at Garden City Community College. Garden City has both Dominick Watt and Willie Canty on the roster so it’s important for the Huskers to have a good relationship with the new head coach. Minnick has coached Greg Bell, Jaron Woodyard and current 2019 commit Desmond Bland previously.
