Nebraska Recruiting: Summer is Almost Over for Huskers

July 14, 2022

Recruiting never stops and it’s easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Hail Varsity recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.

While there may be many days of relaxing by the pool and enjoying summer activities left for Nebraska fans across the country, the Huskers are preparing for their summer to end soon. In fact, the Huskers officially kick off fall camp on Wednesday, July 27.

But first, Nebraska will head to Big Ten Media Days in Indianapolis on Tuesday, July 26. In a bit of an unconventional schedule of events, coach Scott Frost and Nebraska’s three player representatives will speak at the individual podiums at 8:15 a.m. CT in place of a typical afternoon slot. Frost will address the media from the main podium following Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren, who is scheduled to speak at 10 a.m.

Why are the Huskers taking on Indy so early on that Tuesday? You can thank fall camp for that. Nebraska will likely be on a plane back to Lincoln by afternoon, as Nebraska officially reports for camp that same day.

The Huskers will also welcome fans to Memorial Stadium on the 26th too. Nebraska’s annual Fan Day festivities are scheduled for 6 p.m. CT.

As Nebraska’s summer comes to a close, recruiting takes a shift. While parts of the summer are considered quiet periods—or when recruits can have in-person contact with coaches but only on campus—there is also a portion that is a dead period. We are currently in a dead period—a time when coaches are unable to have any in-person contact with recruits and their parents—but that comes to an end July 24. We’ll then enter a quiet period to end July before August rolls around and things shift again.

The month of August is considered a dead period, but there are some exceptions to the rule. Per the NCAA, programs must abide by the dead period rules except for “forty-eight hours before a home contest (on the institution’s campus or in a facility normally used for its home games) that occurs in August or on Sept. 1 or 2 through 48 hours after the conclusion of the contest.”

Nebraska will be on the road for its first game against Northwestern—in Ireland, no less—so it’s essentially a dead period for the Huskers until the team returns to Lincoln for its home opener on Sept. 3.

Until then, summer is slowly coming to a close for the Nebraska football team. The season—and all of the recruit visits that come with it—will be here before we know it.

>> Nebraska made an offer to 2023 defensive lineman Jamarious Brown, a 4-star from Moss Point, Mississippi.

>> It’s a tackler twofer at No. 4 on our most intriguing Huskers list for 2022, as it’s hard to talk about Turner Corcoran without talking about Teddy Prochazka and vice versa when considering what Nebraska’s o-line looks like.

>> Fred Hoiberg called Derrick Walker the rock of the Nebraska basketball program, and the veteran big man is back to fill that role for one more season.
