Nebraska coach Scott Frost is excited with how 2018 National Signing Day went for the Huskers.
Frost, who coached UCF to an undefeated season before taking over at his alma mater, could see Nebraska finish with a top-25 class. Frost talked about the recruiting class while on the Big Ten Network on Wednesday.
“We got in as a coaching staff late on this recruiting process, [but] being able to get kids on campus and seeing their reaction to what we have to offer and get the kids that we’ve got committed in such a short time. I’m excited about these kids in this class, and I’m also excited about the potential to get kids to come to Nebraska.”
On the recruits:
“We want great athletes. I think the kids that we’re signing are not just good football players. They’re good individuals. We definitely had some needs and holes we needed to fill. Safety was one of them. We feel like we signed as good of a class at safety as anybody. Caleb Tannor is a dynamic pass rusher and is going to be a great player around here for a long time. And there’s a lot of other guys that we’re excited about.”
On what’s next:
“We have a lot of work to do. There’s some things that have been done around here that I don’t think are necessarily the Nebraska way. We need to be strong, we need to be physical, we need to be tough. We’re going to get the speed and the athleticism, but those other things are things [we] have to have in a Nebraska football program.”
On getting the Nebraska program back and having seven early enrollees:
“It was important. I think we needed to add some players right away and get those guys some reps in spring ball. We’ve got some good players on campus and we’re looking forward to working with them, but there is a lot work to be done, and the more new talent we can infuse, the better off we’ll be.”
