The Nebraska Cornhuskers finished their three week Friday Night Lights in style this evening, with the biggest turnout of the month & some glowing statements from the participants.
Mike Riley on the third FNL camp and all the fans: "I've coached over 40 years and I've never seen anything quite like tonight."— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 25, 2016
First and foremost, the crowd. The crowd was SOMETHING.
We're not even talking about practice.— Nebraska Football (@HuskerFBNation) June 24, 2016
Fans are lined up to watch some Friday Night Lights Camp.
Word from the street says over 2000 people came. For a three hour camp.
While there, they were treated to the fanfare that was touted to arrive. One visitor that I didn’t include yesterday (due to seeing nothing confirming it) was Anthony Payne, who goes to the same HS as Jaevon McQuitty.
Payne & McQuitty sounds like they are splitting town early though, but only for a 7 on 7 tournament that’s in Kansas City tomorrow.
Speaking of Kansas City, sounds like a Mizzou verbal arrived unexpectedly tonight, and turned some heads. Remember, it’s on his own dime.
Another kid - who just showed up - was 2017 Mizzou WR commit Da'Ron Davis. Very good. Deep speed. 4-star guy. Watch him.— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 25, 2016
But, it sounds like the person who stole the show is 2018 CB Calabasas prospect Brendan Radley-Hines. He shined big time.
The best guy tonight? I gotta say, it's just one camp but...2018 prospect Brendan Radley-Hiles - goes by Bookie - looked "the guy" tonight.— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 25, 2016
Joseph Lewis beat him Bookie once. But, I'll tell ya, Radley-Hiles can *really* cover. Physical. Good ball skills. Great timing. Stud.— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 25, 2016

It sounds like Bookie went hard against fellow Calibraska guy Joseph Lewis and they shared their fair sort of wins.
And... THIS OH MY GOD THIS.
So, what to make out of all this? Well, the fanbase support, as well as so many stars had to impress a lot of folks both on the field and in the stands observing.
I would suspect that Nebraska will see the benefits of these past 3 weeks more and more in the not too distant future. But, take the words of the participants for yourself.
Thank you for EVERYONE coming out for the camp. Husker nation is the best damn fans in AMERICA— Keyshawn Jr. (@keyshawnnnn) June 25, 2016
