Another visit

Fan Day date

For those hoping to meet coach Scott Frost, Nebraska has officially set the date for its annual Fan Day. The event will take place Saturday, Aug. 18, with more details forthcoming.

Top 5

Chris Akporoghene, a 3-star offensive tackle from Florida’s IMG Academy, announced his top 5 on Monday. Nebraska made the cut.

Reporting for duty

Former Utah defensive lineman Vaha Vainuku is now a member of the Huskers, and he made it officially official when he arrived on campus over the weekend for summer conditioning.

Georgia talent

The Nebraska staff would like to keep finding talent from Grayson High in Loganville, Ga. If all goes as planned, it could become a pipeline of talent for the Huskers.
