Per a report by Gina Mizell of the Oregonian, two more of the Oregon State Beavers support staff under Mike Riley will be heading East to become members of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Ryan Gunderson, who was the Director of Player Personnel under Riley in Corvallis has joined the staff in Lincoln under the same role. He was responsible for coordinating Official Visits, incoming Student-Athlete tracking and most recruiting roles under Riley. He is a graduate of Oregon State, where he played for Riley as a Quarterback. Looks like he's already on the job too, according to his twitter.
Extremely excited to be joining @Coach_Riley at Nebraska, time to get to work! #GBR— Ryan Gunderson (@TheGundy) December 10, 2014
Those in the recruiting circles are very familiar with Gunderson and are impressed by him.
Football recruiting ops. One of best in country, IMO. Very cutting edge w/ social media & other techniques. @CourtMerrigan @HuskersGameday— Jeremy Crabtree (@jeremycrabtree) December 10, 2014
Hilary O'Bryan, who was on the Oregon State staff for 7 years and a graduate of OSU as well, joins the Huskers as Assistant Director of Football Operations. She will be working with Dan Van De Riet, who joined the staff a few days ago from Corvallis as well.
O'Bryan has already changed her twitter as well, and is already at work for Big Red.
Hey @Huskers, I'm fired up to be in Lincoln! I've heard there's #NoPlace like it. Is that true? #GBR— Hilary O'Bryan (@hilaryobryan) December 10, 2014
Furthermore, it looks like Van De Riet is making himself and his family at home in Lincoln.
My little fella reading up on the State of Nebraska. Can't get him to take off his new #Huskers jersey. #GBR pic.twitter.com/RuyloiWMtb— Dan Van De Riet (@dvdizzle) December 10, 2014
