Saturday Flakes: Nebraska’s Impressive Recruiting Weekend - Time to Win Games

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

This past week my wife was at a work convention in Florida and I have decided that that is reason that I forgot to publish a Friday Flakes. Yep. I will put all the blame on her.

So here’s a Saturday Flakes!

Big Recruiting Weekend

That is just the beginning as there are a slew of high profile recruits coming into Lincoln this weekend. According to On3’s Bryan Munson, he said that this crew is the most impressive weekend event at Nebraska that he has seen in his 24 years of covering the program.

He said 16 out of a total 26 confirmed visitors are either 4-star or 5-star prospects.

That’s impressive.

Now hopefully Nebraska can just figure out how to win games. That should help.

I have not seen this. Is it worth my time?
