Latitude of freedom?Not to pile on, but Raiola was at Nebraska for over 6 weeks before he made a scholarship offer to a 2023 HS player. He's still only extended a handful. I would have thought Nebraska's recruiting department would have had an extensive list of guys that they'd already vetted for him to review and get on the ball.
To be fair, I guess, Nebraska had gone stagnant with their recruiting in '22 and they were behind the ball for '23, especially after making staff changes, which is to be expected. The new guys like Joseph, Applewhite and Busch came in and really busted their butts. Nebraska was making offers to guys in December and January that they should have been already offering and recruiting in August and September. Most position groups will get caught up. Both sides of the line remain a concern, though, if you're a Husker fan.
Let Raiola grease his own wheels then put him in with the machinery?
