    T.V. Williams of McKinney High School in Northeast Texas is one of the top targets for the Huskers 2014 class at the slot-receiver position. Williams has offers from teams residing in the SEC, Big 10 and Pac 12 conferences along with several other schools. Rich Fisher is recruiting Williams in hopes that he can join the 2014 class as Nebraska's slot specialist and an additional option in the return game. I had the opportunity to interview T.V. in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Gaelin Elmore of Somerset High School in Wisconsin is one of Nebraska's top targets at tight end for the 2014 class. Elmore is a three-star prospect and considered the best skill-position player in the state. Nebraska will likely only sign one tight end for this class, and the Huskers would prefer Elmore to fill the vacancy. I had the opportunity to interview Gaelin in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A: For fun I enjoy playing basketball, hanging out with friends and working out.

    Q: At what age did you start playing football?

    Early season neutral site games have been making a comeback in college football over the past five years, and, with the reality of a weaker conference schedule upon Husker Nation, Nebraska should consider jumping into the fray. The last nonconference neutral site game Nebraska played was in 1994 against West Virginia in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Even though Nebraska's slated to play Northern Illinois at Soldier Field in 2016 (which still could be canceled), it's ...

    Demornay Pierson-El is a versatile athlete from West Potomac High School in Alexandria, Virginia. He is being recruited to play multiple positions at the next level. Schools are recruiting him to play running back, wide receiver and defensive back. Nebraska likes his versatility and how his skill set would fit into their offense. With the struggles the Huskers have had the past few years in the return game, Pierson-El would also bring added value to their special teams units. I had the opportunity to interview Demornay in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A: I like to work out and hang out with my friends.

    Q: At what age did you start playing football?

    A: I started playing at a young age, like 4 or 5.

    Heading into the 2013 season, Nebraska's young defensive line is a question mark; most Husker fans can agree on that.

    But after more than a decade, will the offensive line finally become an exclamation point? That is the question.

    It's been a while since Nebraska had a truly dominant offensive line. There were signs of improvement last year, ...

    Kenric Young of Gainesville High is one of the better wide receiver prospects in Northern Florida for the 2014 class. Young, who already has numerous offers from schools in the Big Ten, ACC, Big 12, Pac 12 and Big East conferences, is currently one of the top targets for the Huskers' upcoming class at the position. With an estimated 18-20 available spots in their 2014 class, Nebraska may look to take 2 or 3 wide receivers. Tim Beck, who is personally recruiting Young, is hoping Kenric fills one of those slots. I had the opportunity to interview Kenric in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A: I just like to hang out with my team and play video games.

    With times set for Nebraska's first two games, I figured it was time to break down some of the factors in Big 10 scheduling and TV early in the season. The Huskers are in an unique position in that they are going to get on TV regularly enough that they shouldn't bend over backwards ...

    D.J. Foster of Lincoln Southeast is the top-ranked prospect in the state of Nebraska for the class of 2014. Foster, a consensus four-star recruit, is the highest regarded offensive lineman to come out of the state since Baker Steinkuhler graduated from Lincoln Southwest in 2008. Foster is one of the best interior linemen in the country and is arguably the top offensive line target of the Huskers for this class. I had the opportunity to interview D.J. in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A week ago, I drafted a post that forecasted Nebraska's TV schedule, not expecting that the Big 10 and ESPN would have to set their primetime schedule before the month of May was upon us. Please, Big 10: you don't have to announce your fall lineup before the four major networks announce theirs. ...

    A year from now, Husker fans will be watching the NFL draft and wondering where Taylor Martinez will be taken, and how he might be used in an NFL offense. Given his limited toolbox is as a passer, he's more likely to be used as wide receiver/kick returner/wildcat quarterback. Just stop, crazy fan -- ...
