Nebraska offers put focus on wide receivers; Scott Frost’s Florida connection

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.

Focusing on wide receivers

Nebraska coach Scott Frost and his staff haven’t slowed down on the recruiting trail. In doing so, the Huskers have shown an interest in wide receivers with the latest round of offers. It’s a position group that needs a lot of attention, so it makes sense.

The Sunshine State

Frost has recruiting ties to Florida now after his two years with UCF. Will that pay off for Nebraska? So far so good when looking at the Huskers’ 2018 recruiting class.

The big plays

Running back Greg Bell and wide receiver Jaron Woodyard may claim not to be a package deal, but the Huskers don’t mind either way. The two junior college athletes from Arizona Western want to make big plays quickly for Nebraska, which is exactly what Frost and his staff want to hear.

What’s next?

What’s next for Nebraska on the recruiting trail? Land of 10’s Chris Bumbaca took a look at where the Huskers are now and offered his thoughts in the latest Nebraska recruiting mailbag.

All the history

For better or worse, the Omaha World-Herald looked at 125 years of Nebraska coaches. It highlights everything from the arrivals to the departures, and it’s a fascinating look at Huskers’ history.

Straightforward approach

That’s how the Nebraska staff handled the recruitment of safety Deontai Williams. It paid off, too. Williams committed and then signed early with Nebraska.

Birthday wishes

Nebraska wide receiver De’Mornay Pierson-El celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday. He got a lot of love on Twitter, including this series of photos from teammate Keyan Williams.

Here’s hoping it was a great day for Pierson-El!
