The Huskers were able to have recruits in the building for the Red-White Spring Game but in a roundabout way, of course. We are still in an NCAA-mandated dead period so the recruits had to attend the game as fans after purchasing a ticket. The team was able to get several 2022, 2023 and 2024 prospects at the game. A handful of 2021 commits were also in attendance.
It appears that a good time was had by all who attended. Check out some of their posts from the game on social media. We’ll have coverage at Hail Varsity all weekend bring you reaction from recruits that made the trip to Lincoln.
