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.
Fall camp is underway for Nebraska, and the schedule is a bit different than it has been in the past. The Huskers will follow a three days on and one day off type of schedule through fall camp, which makes things a little different than years past. It makes sense though with the tight timeline before Nebraska heads to Ireland.
Coach Scott Frost offered some thoughts on his team following the second practice of fall camp on Thursday. He shared that the team is having fun and is in great shape heading into camp. There’s still plenty of work and conditioning ahead, of course, but the coach seemed please for how things are going to start.

While all eyes will be on the team’s progression through fall camp, one area not to lose sight on is recruiting. It’s expected that we’ll see some recruits on campus for a Nebraska practice here and there through fall camp.
Nebraska’s 2023 recruiting class is nearly complete, but there are some final spots that need to be filled. Keeping the recruiting momentum going wouldn’t be a bad thing for the Huskers, especially when moving that momentum forward for the 2024 and 2025 classes. Getting recruits on campus for a practice and to meet with Frost and the Husker staff goes a long way, especially if Nebraska can get those recruits on campus a few times throughout their recruiting journeys.
There are also potential spots on both the offensive and defensive line to fill for the 2023 class, as well as running back. Could we see visitors from any of those spots between now and the time Nebraska leaves for Dublin? It wouldn’t be surprising.
One player to keep an eye on in is running back Dylan Edwards. He’s currently committed to Kansas State, but Nebraska has stayed in touch since he committed to the Wildcats. Could the Huskers convince him to reconsider? Anything is possible. He last visited Nebraska on May 20, so we’ll see if the Huskers can get him back on campus at some point. That’s really they key.
We’re also waiting to hear from 2023 edge Cameron Lenhardt, who has been on commitment watch for some time now. Is his decision tied in some way to whatever Ashley Williams ultimately decides to do? He committed to Nebraska a couple of weeks ago but is now set to visit Auburn. Could that mean a potential de-commitment for the Huskers?
All of this to say that as fall camp begins, recruiting will likely only ramp up for Nebraska. Who will we see at practice? Who is the next commit? Could there be a de-commit as well? So many questions, but it just means football season is truly here.
Let the fun begin.
