The recruiting machine churns all week. Join us Sunday through Thursday nights when we recap Nebraska recruiting news, offering analysis and context.
Nebraska held its final spring practice before the school’s break Thursday, meaning next week will be a heavy recruiting week for coaches.
But before the Cornhuskers coaches hit the recruiting trail, they extended offers this week to a handful of players.
Nebraska’s most recent offer went to Asa Martin, a 4-star running back from Decatur, Ala.
