Most athletes in Nebraska outside of the Lincoln/Omaha metro will not have the chance to play in front of recruiting gurus. They therefore will not receive the hype that athletes in metro areas receive. An athlete cannot help where his parents choose to live. He just goes out and plays ball.
Many athletes in the United States do not live in metro areas, and therefore are "under the radar." There is no way to objectively measure the potential of a high school junior or senior.
