On Monday, Nebraska football recruiting director Tom Burdick said he had talked to a recruiter from the US.
“I just asked him if he was interested in going to the US and he said he was.
He’s a good guy and he’s been around here a long time,” Burdicker said on Fox Sports Nebraska.
Burdicks comments come as a reminder that Nebraska will need to recruit players from across the US if it wants to keep the program afloat.
The program is in a difficult position.
While Nebraska has been a perennial contender for national championships in recent years, it’s been losing in the Big Ten East and Conference USA.
Last season the Huskers went 3-8 and ranked dead last in the conference, but the team made the Final Four and lost to Duke.
On the flip side, the Husker offense is loaded with talent, with running back Justin Thomas, linebacker Alex Anzalone, wide receiver Tyler Boyd, and defensive back Darnell Hall all being first round picks.
The Huskers will be looking to make an impact at quarterback in the coming years and Burdack says he’s hoping to see a QB take advantage of the opportunities he’s given him.
“I know he’ll do the best he can,” Burt told Fox Sports.
“He’s the one that has the biggest upside in my opinion.”
Burdickers comments came after former Nebraska quarterback Chase Daniel said he has seen the Nebraska staff recruit in the US for the past three years.
“It’s a big market for recruiting, so if I can be a part of that, it makes it even more special,” Daniel told FOX Sports Nebraska’s Mike Davis.
“We’re really close.
I’ve been there for three years now, and it’s definitely a huge market for our program.”
