Nebraska Recruiting: The Strategy Behind Camp Season

May 30, 2019

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.

Camp season is back. Starting tomorrow, on May 31, Nebraska’s staff will begin hosting and attending camps around the country. Per NCAA rules, a staff is allowed 10 camp days. That doesn’t mean they can just attend or host 10 camps though, which is why you’ll see them double up on some days and split the coaching staff. 

Friday is a good example of that. Nebraska will host its first camp this summer which is an individual camp. The camp is designed to teach the fundamentals and techniques of football. The campers will be broken down into groups by position and grade level to receive as much information and instruction as possible.

Also, on Friday, the Huskers will be at the Lindenwood mega-camp in St. Louis. That camp is known to be one of the best and biggest camps going. There will be a lot of talented players there from the region and new names pop up on the radar yearly from that camp. 

The weekend of June 8 is another double-duty time for the staff. 

There is a camp hosted by South Florida that the Huskers will attend. Meanwhile the Huskers youth camp is the same day and Nebraska’s 7-on-7 Camp is Sunday, June 9. In its second year of existence, Nebraska’s 7-on-7 Camp has been expanded from 15 teams to 32 teams. The camp is under the guidance of tight ends coach Sean Beckton.

There is a strategy behind which coaches are at what camps and when. By doubling up a few times and splitting the staff, Nebraska will be able to maximize the time allotted and get as much evaluation in as possible.
