The article also talks about Dawson and his recruing of Ty Robinson.Being from Lincoln obviously helps Ruud with in-state recruiting, as does his standing as Nebraska's all-time leading tackler.
"I knew Barrett was big in Nebraska, but I remember being at a (Nebraska) basketball game last winter and they introduced all the assistant coaches and everyone else got a nice round of applause, and the whole Pinnacle Bank Arena erupted with the Ruud chant when he came out," Husker head coach Scott Frost said.
"He's the right guy to have in Nebraska. I thought it was a good year in Nebraska talentwise. If we can sign five scholarship-quality players from the state every year, that'll be a good start for us. Those five guys are going to be huge for us. I think they'll help be the backbone of the program we're building."
Frost says Nebraska coaches are as "honest as they can be" in recruiting. NU gave word to Ronald Thompkins, who injured his knee in the first game this season and missed the rest of the year. Huskers never wavered in commitment to the injured player, Frost said.
Frost says on his radio show Michael Lynn will project to guard.
>W. Robinson a little more versatile than Spielman.
>Hickman could be a “stretch the field” TE.
>Anderson and Fritzsche have “Sunday potential.”
