Recruiting Roundup: First Week of June Husker Updates as Dead Period Ends

June 01, 2021

Recruiting is fully back.

The NCAA-mandated dead period officially ended on June 1. Now a number of prohibited activities are allowed to resume. Prospects can take official visits to college campuses starting this week. Schools are allowed to host camps as the Huskers will do starting June 4 with the return of the Friday Night Lights camp. Assistant coaches are allowed back out on the road to work satellite camps as well. A new wrinkle this summer is that schools are allowed to work out prospects for one hour privately.

Recruiting activity is off and running. We’re going to keep track of it all here.

Tuesday, June 1

>> Hail Varsity has confirmed that running backs coach Ryan Held will be in Florida on Tuesday. Held will be at the FIU camp in Miami. It’s the first day camps are allowed to operate and the Huskers are hitting the ground running. That camp is open to prospects in grades 9-12, plus junior college freshmen and sophomores.

>> Nebraska will also host a local prospect for the first private workout of the summer. Lincoln Southeast athlete Jake Appleget will work out for Nebraska on Tuesday. Appleget (6-4, 210) has an important summer ahead of him. He does a bit of everything for Lincoln Southeast but he’d project as a linebacker type for the Huskers with good athleticism.

>> Update: Appleget’s workout went well enough for him to earn a scholarship from the Huskers on Tuesday afternoon.


>> This month will go a long way toward settling Nebraska’s quarterback board. Texas quarterback Richard Torres (6-6, 210) is the only player at the position that has a known official visit on the books for the Huskers. He announced his busy June schedule Tuesday morning.

>> It wouldn’t be recruiting season without running backs coach Ryan Held positing a picture of food from the road. He’s back at it with a nice seafood lunch.


Keep it locked on this space as we will update the latest information on a busy recruiting week.
