The more then year-long recruiting dead period caused by the COVID-19 pandemic finally ended this month as the United State vaccine effort continues to cause new cases to plummet nationwide. With the end of the dead period brought a furry of official recruiting visits to Lincoln this month.
With that in mind, we have a helpful check-in courtesy of Rivals on who has visited or announced a visit thus far since June 1. With that is a brief look at their recruiting profiles. Hopefully some of them end up committing!
