Wednesday Frost Flakes: 2020 Recruiting Stagnation

New, 83 comments

The 2020 recruiting class is going to have to pick up soon.

NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska’s recruiting class currently sits at 13 commits for the 2020 class, which actually is not the lowest in the B1G. Poor Illinois is at 8 and Rutgers is at 10. Those may not be surprises but Nebraska only having 13 commits going into our second to last game is now very concerning. What is happening is a combination of missing on almost all of our linebacker targets and our other targets wanting to wait until signing day - either the first or second - to make their decision.

Are we doomed for a failed class? Maybe not.

Originally, Nebraska was going to have a small class of around 18 members but with attrition, Nebraska is looking take a full class in the mid twenties. Going from 13 as of right now to 25ish by the second signing day is going to interesting. I am not sure how the staff is going to do it while not reaching on anyone.

GBR always.
