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.
Back in the 2018 recruiting class, Nebraska signed ten players that hailed from either California, Florida or Texas. In particular, the Huskers got signatures from five players from Florida. Between that and the staff coming from UCF, it was assumed that the Sunshine State would begin to lead the way for the Huskers.
That didn’t exactly materialize in the 2019 recruiting cycle. In fact, just one player who signed with Nebraska this last class was from one of the “Big 3.” Brant Banks, the defensive line early enrollee, is from Texas. Surely, the lack of players in the class from California, Texas or Florida represents a unique circumstance, right?
Well, let’s see what the 2020 scholarship offers tell us so far about Nebraska’s efforts in these states:
Texas is the state that Nebraska has offered the most scholarship in for 2020. Florida is second. California is fourth behind Georgia. Based on the 103 total scholarship offers in the “Big 3” states, Nebraska will make a significant push to change its fortunes from the 2019 recruiting class.
