Nebraska Recruiting: The Impact of the Huskers' Best Asset

July 22, 2019

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.


Since coming back from vacation, I think I’ve caught up on all the big storylines from Big Ten Media Days in Chicago. Huskers handling the hype heading into the season, the defense being ready to break out from the shadow of the offense and Adrian Martinez’ arrival on the national stage were just a few of the key points. 

However, one of the things that stood out to me was Coach Scott Frost talking about Nebraska’s best asset during his breakout session.

“We have a lot of good people,” Frost said. “I say it all the time, but Nebraska’s best asset is its people. The thing I’m as proud of about our program as anything is the type of men that are on our staff. Not just good coaches but good people. I think people attract the same type of people, so I think the coaches we have are going to attract the right type of kid and the kids that we want, they work their butts off.”

Through talking with prospects and current players, I would certainly back up what Frost said about his staff. I also wonder if that particular set of skills from the staff will take a couple of years to really show. It’s tough to measure team chemistry and how hard players are playing for coaches that they like and respect. Perhaps we won’t see the tangible results of that until more wins occur.

Frost went on to further compliment his staff’s efforts in evaluating and offering as many people as anybody in the country. Since the Huskers offer so many prospects, they are also in as many schools as anybody in the country. The outlook for the future of Nebraska recruiting is bright, according to Frost.

“Recruiting’s going to be great,” he explained. “I think the biggest thing for us is getting kids to Lincoln because when they get to Lincoln and see what Lincoln’s like and what Nebraska’s all about and the type of people that are in our building, we’ve got a great chance to get them.”
