Huskers lining up big early visits in Frost’s career opener
Nebraska has been playing behind the 8-ball since Scott Frost took over last winter chasing down high school commits without any official visitor slots available to them. They’ve done a terrific job of bringing in high school recruits on unofficial visits so far and now that the season is approaching their official visitor count has reset and a number of high profile kids are lining up visits to Lincoln.
This list will grow as the games get closer but this shows just how important official visits are and just how hard the staff has been working the last few months to build these relationships.
With an evening and afternoon kickoffs the first two weeks of the season, the Husker staff will push hard to get key visitors in those two weeks. Those game times mean that most kids can play their regular high school game on Friday and make the trip up to Lincoln on Saturday morning without running into scheduling conflicts
So far there are several talented recruits coming up and, as always, expect this list to grow and change over the next few weeks as kids lock in their official visit schedules:
Week 1 – September 1st vs Akron @ 7:00pm
4* CB Tiawan Mullen
4* OT Danielson Ike – (unofficial) Previous Visits – 4/7/18, and on 6/14/18.
