Nebraska: Brendan Radley-Hiles gets call from Scott Frost; Huskers basketball upsets Minnesota
Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.
A call and a visit
Former Nebraska commit Brendan “Bookie” Radley-Hiles has had quite the start to his week. After being bumped up to a 5-star cornerback by Rivals, Radley-Hiles also received a call from Nebraska coach Scott Frost and a visit from running backs coach Ryan Held.
Big win over Minnesota
Nebraska basketball got a big win at home over No. 14 Minnesota on Tuesday night, taking down the Gophers 78-68. Glynn Watson Jr. boasted an impressive 29 points for the Huskers in the win.
Coach Tim Miles even got in a joke about Frost after the game, saying there hadn’t been much to cheer about since Frost was hired.
WHAT A WIN!

Even more offers
It’s been a busy few days for Nebraska’s new staff on the recruiting trail. Even more offers have gone out and even more visits have taken place. On top of it, former Nebraska quarterback commit Terry Wilson is set to visit Nebraska this weekend.
Can’t get enough recruiting? The new Land of 10 Nebraska recruiting mailbag has debuted and is full of even more information on the busy week ahead.
Coach of the year
After boasting a 12-0 record with UCF, Frost is a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award. He is joined on the list by UAB’s Bill Clark, FAU’s Lane Kiffin, Army’s Jeff Monken, Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley, Georgia’s Kirby Smart, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Fresno State’s Jeff Tedford.
Moving on up
Former Huskers wide receiver Brandon Reilly is being moved from the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad to the team’s active roster. He’ll make his debut in Week 14.
Heading back west
Former Nebraska linebackers coach Trent Bray spent a little time as the Huskers interim head coach. Now that Frost is in place, Bray is ready to move forward and it looks like that next step will be back at Oregon State.
Pro Big Red
How did former Huskers fare in the NFL during Week 13? Huskers.com has the full recap.
Nebraska setter Kelly Hunter was named the AVCA North Region Player of the Year on Tuesday, and there were more honors for Nebraska volleyball. Hunter, Annika Albrecht, Mikaela Foecke and Briana Holman earned selections to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-North Region team. Foecke, Holman and Hunter are repeat all-region honorees, while Albrecht is a first-time all-region team member.
Can you feel it?
Before taking on Minnesota, the Huskers striped out Pinnacle Bank Arena and put on a bit of a light show. Whether you were there and want to relive it or were at home and missed it, the video is cool to watch.
