    In a revised review of Nebraska's 2011 recruiting class, Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald notes that, as early as the summer of 2010, signs pointed to Bubba Starling choosing MLB over college football. Even though Jamal Turner was committed to Nebraska as a quarterback, ...

    Greg Simmons of Fort Pierce Central High School in Fort Pierce, Florida, is currently rated as a three-star prospect by all four major recruiting services. Nebraska continues to scour the country in search of linebacker help and the Huskers are particularly thin in the middle. There isn't a true middle linebacker on the current roster who isn't an upperclassmen. It is imperative for the coaches to find a couple inside guys in this class who they can plug into the system and have learn for a year under guys like Josh Banderas and Michael Rose-Ivey. The linebacker position promises to be vital in Mark Banker's Cover-4 scheme. Linebackers will need to be athletic and versatile. They will be asked to cover tight ends and running backs, while also needing to stuff the run and be effective blitzers. ...

    Quayshon Alexander of De Paul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey, is currently rated as a
    four-star prospect by 247Sports (#143 overall) and ESPN (# 269 overall), and as a high three-star by Rivals and Scout. When Mark Banker and Trent Bray arrived in Lincoln back in December and saw the lack of depth at linebacker, they quickly made the position a top priority for the 2015 class. The Huskers ended up signing five potential linebackers in February. Banker has said he would like to have around 12 scholarship linebackers on the roster, ideally, and that means it will remain a position of need in the upcoming 2016 class. Nebraska will likely sign four or more linebackers in this class as they look to restock the roster. Quayshon Alexander, who has offers from Michigan, Miami, Mississippi and others, is on top of their board

    A.J. Taylor of Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Missouri, is currently rated as a four-star recruit by Rivals (#128 overall) and Scout, and as a high three-star by 247Sports and ESPN. When Mike Riley took over at Nebraska, he laid down his recruiting strategy.
    Their recruiting game plan was going to be pretty simple - own the 500-mile radius. Location is ultimately the No. 1 factor for most recruits, thus Riley intends to address the teams needs by recruiting Nebraska, Kansas City, St. Louis, Colorado, Oklahoma, Chicago, Indianapolis and Minneapolis, first and foremost, and then supplementing the rest of the class with players from the power states. A.J. Taylor is exactly the kind of recruit Riley wants and needs to convince to stay local - and play for Nebraska. Taylor is the best player in the state of Missouri for 2016

    Noah Fant of Omaha South High School in Omaha, Nebraska, is currently rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and Scout, and is not yet rated by Rivals or ESPN. Fant will spend his senior year battling with Jared Bubak for top recruit in Nebraska honors. Fant is fresh off of an impressive performance at the Rivals Camp Series in St. Louis this past weekend, where he displayed tremendous burst and athleticism. Nebraska is looking to sign two or three tight ends and at least that many defensive ends in this class. While Nebraska coaches currently like him on the defensive side of the ball, Fant could come in and potentially fill a need at either position for the Huskers. I had the opportunity to interview Noah in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript ...

    Tremayne Anchrum Jr. of McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, is currently rated as a high three-star prospect by Rivals, 247Sports and Scout, and is not yet rated by ESPN. Anchrum, who holds offers from the SEC, ACC, Pac-12 and Big Ten, currently stars at left tackle for McEachern. At 6-foot-3, a move inside to guard may be in his future at the next level. Nebraska is set to take five, possibly six offensive linemen in this class and would like Anchrum to be one of them. The Huskers have spent the past couple years trying to create a bigger presence in talent-rich states like Georgia, Florida and Louisiana. As one of the best offensive linemen in Georgia, Anchrum is the sort of talent that Nebraska is trying to harvest from those traditional SEC states. Gaining Anchrum's commitment would go a long way towards ...

    I attended a small private college in Wisconsin, graduating in 2005. Over the years, I've talked to other alums who wish our school system was a bit more forthcoming about the debt most of us were incurring. Many of the people I ...

    Kentrell Love of Centennial High School in Corona, California, has not yet been rated by any of the four major recruiting services. Don't let that fact fool you, though. Love could be on the cusp of blowing up on the recruiting scene. The Huskers are very deep at cornerback, but will still be looking to add a couple in this class. The depth and overall talent level on the roster will allow them to be very selective. Kentrell Love fits the mold of what new defensive backs coach Brian Stewart is looking for. Love is 6-foot-2 with long arms, and his overall skillset is reminiscent of current Husker cornerbacks Joshua Kalu (6-1) and Chris Jones (6-0) - both of whom Stewart recruited while he was the defensive coordinator at Maryland. I had the opportunity to interview Kentrell in an attempt to gain some insight ...

    “It's sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.”
    - Henry Rollins

    Champions Club
    Lincoln, NE

    As I write this column, it's painful to think of Adrian Fiala in the past tense. Really strange. And terribly sad.

    But last Thursday, at the Champions Club in Lincoln, family members, friends, former high school classmates and a bunch of his former Husker football teammates showed up to honor Adrian who passed away April 13th.

    Hayden Johnson of Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and has not yet been rated by the other three major recruiting services. Nebraska has a glaring need for help at defensive end and are also looking to add a pair of tight ends with this class as well. Hayden Johnson is a versatile prospect capable of playing either position at the next level. Under Riley, Nebraska is making more of a concerted effort to focus on the 500-mile radius. He would like to foster a recruiting mentality that treats border states such as Missouri, Colorado, Kansas and Iowa like in-state recruits. Nebraska is the juggernaut University in the Midwest and Riley wants to capitalize on that fact on the recruiting trail. It's a great strategy ...
