Nebraska has and always will be able to recruit nationwide. Nebraska is a football brand that is known well outside it's own conference footprint. That's one of the reasons we were invited to join the Big 10 in the first place. NU has recruited on both coasts on a pretty consistant basis and last time I checked none of the conference schools were ever located on either coast. NU is on national tv enough that a kid who plays football has seen our games and knows the name.
