Nebraska Recruiting: Lindenwood Mega Camp, Shrine Bowl Updates

April 30, 2020

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.

Uncertain times throughout the country have thrown a lot of planned of events into a tailspin. The summer is an important time for recruiting and for high school football in general. College coaches are usually out on the road going to high schools to evaluate potential additions to their teams. Camp season is also happening during that time. While established and big-name recruits attend those camps, it is also a great time to shine for off-the-radar prospects hoping to make names for themselves. Also, underclassmen can use camps as a way to get on the radar of colleges checking out those camps. 

The biggest camp in the region now is the Lindenwood Mega Camp in Missouri. The most recent data has 40 colleges scheduled to attend that camp this summer. The coordinators of the camp made a big announcement on Thursday.

Every effort is being made to hold that camp given how much it matters to all the prospects who attend the event. Hopefully by moving it back to July, it can be held.

The Nebraska Shrine Bowl Executive Board—along with the City of Kearney and University of Nebraska at Kearney—agreed on a new date for the 62nd Annual Nebraska Shrine Bowl. The Nebraska Shrine Bowl Game will now be played Saturday, July 11, 2020 at Ron and Carol Cope Stadium in Kearney. With information provided by the CDC and by the state of Nebraska, it was determined the game could not be played later than July 31. 

“I want to thank the Nebraska Shrine Bowl Executive Board for their unanimous support, the City of Kearney and the University of Nebraska at Kearney for their great partnership and their support in the consultation process over the last few days,” NSB Executive Director Dave MacDonald said. “With this announcement, I am confident that, working together with the City of Kearney, the University of Nebraska at Kearney, and all our stakeholders, we can commandeer this unique challenge.”

The Shrine Bowl is Nebraska’s biggest high school football all-star game. It also brings funds and awareness to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children. The game is also a nice showcase for Nebraska high school seniors before they head off to their respective colleges. It’s a really nice event that can hopefully be salvaged later in the summer.

The coming weeks could be big for setting the tone for which camps and events are allowed to proceed this summer.
