Nebraska Recruiting: What Can Husker Coaches Do on Spring Break?

March 19, 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.


I was asked on a recent radio appearance what the Nebraska coaching staff is allowed to do this week during spring break. That topic has come up a couple times this week, so let’s go ahead and break it down. 

While some coaches on staff will use this time to recharge their batteries, others may be wanting to use it to recruit. However, there is a limit on what they can do when it comes to recruiting. We are currently in a “quiet period,” meaning the staff can't go out on the road to recruit but they can communicate with recruits through social media and take their calls if the prospect initiates it. 

The “quiet period” runs through April 15, so it’s very strategic that Nebraska’s spring game is April 13. The spring evaluation period then runs from from April 15 through May 31, allowing assistant coaches to hit the road and see prospects (but not in-home). Head coaches are not allowed on the road during that time. 

Official visits are also allowed now starting April 1 of a prospect’s junior year through Sunday, June 23. While it’s possible that Nebraska could host unofficial visitors this week, it’s unlikely. Once practice starts again next week, the visits will resume.

All in all, it’s a quiet week but it won’t last long.
