Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Hail Varsity is here to recap all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.


As recruiting analyst Greg Smith posted about in a notebook last week, Nebraska has partnered with Adidas to host a 2019 National OL/DL Pipeline Camp in Lincoln on June 15. There’s a lot to like about that camp on its own, but it’s not the only camp on Nebraska’s schedule over the coming months.

Looking at HuskerCamps.com, Nebraska is set for a busy few months. That’s not a bad thing either. However, there isn’t a schedule on the site that shows every camp in relation to one another. Let’s break that down, shall we?

Worth noting:

  • Frost has made critical comments of former coach Mike Riley in the past, but let’s not forget that he has also said that "not everything they did here was terrible.” One of those things? The Friday Night Lights camps. Started in 2015, Riley and his staff created the high school camp that quickly became popular among recruits. It’s not hard to see why either when thousands of Nebraska fans show up on a June night to catch one-on-one drills and more. This summer will mark the fourth year of the Friday Night Lights camps, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.
  •  We’ll have to talk more about that OL/DL pipeline camp in the coming weeks, but let’s just start here: The event looks awesome. Considering Nebraska has traveled over the years to various satellite camps, it’s a big perk to get the nation’s top offensive and defensive linemen on campus in Lincoln instead. Since HuskerCamps.com has partnered with Adidas, other Adidas programs will be in attendance. But again, Nebraska isn’t going to have to travel to see the talent for this one. The talent (and the other interested programs) are going to have to come to Nebraska.
  • Inside Husker Football 101 and 202 look interesting. It’s always a fun experience when Nebraska fans can get an inside look and expand their knowledge with something like this. Expect both to sell out quickly.
  • Don’t let the note on the Specialist Camp about registration opening soon fool you. Registration is open. You’re welcome.

 

Recruit Watch

>> This could technically fall under the ICYMI section, but let’s put it here instead. Greg looked at the storylines to watch on the recruiting trail for Nebraska in 2020. (Premium)

>> Montra Edwards, a 3-star defensive tackle from Holmes County Central in Lexington, Mississippi, received an offer from Nebraska on Saturday. He has other offers from the likes of LSU, Mississippi State, Louisville and more.

>> No one tell him about the blizzard.

But seriously, don’t let him talk to Tony Butler.

>> Nash Hutmacher, a 2020 defensive line target for Nebraska, won his third straight A-285 title in South Dakota over the weekend.

 

ICYMI

>> How good can the Huskers’ offense be in 2019? Nebraska has two key factors working in its favor, according to Brandon Vogel.

>> Jacob Padilla checked in with 2021 Nebraska target Hunter Sallis, who doesn’t pay much attention to recruiting rankings but he appreciates when his hard work is recognized. (Premium)

>> Well, Game 4 was a pretty good summary of Nebraska baseball’s series with Oregon State. The Huskers dropped Sunday’s game, 8-3, and ultimately the whole series.
