The rest of the story- Number of players with a high 3 star rating or higher:

Iowa - 3

Illinois - 2

Minn. - 1

Iowa St. - 1

Wisconsin - 7, but 5 are from the home state.

Kansas St. - 1

now this is more important than the tweet was, this has more bearing imo

I think we should branch out more. Tap into the European, African, Asian and Australian markets. Bunch of untapped potential. We could start doing satellite camps there and the hopefully in a couple years we're getting around 15+ players from overseas

This graph means 0 unless they want to use % and base it off population #'s - however, for anybody that has an agenda - I guess it is pretty nice

Out of at least 276 scholarship offers Nebraska extended to high school recruits this year, less than 10 percent — 27 total — went to players within that 500-mile radius. Only one-third of the class, which features 18 commits as of Friday afternoon, comes from inside the 500-mile radius.

 

That’s already the lowest percentage of the last four classes, and depending on how many recruits NU ends up landing, that percentage could drop as low as 25 percent. Only two classes since 1989 have had 500-mile radius recruits comprise less than a quarter of the final total.

 

An increasing focus on California combined with a lack of talent nearby has contributed to this. There were 13 recruits in the Rivals250 from within the 500-mile radius this year. That’s the lowest total since at least 2008, and that number has decreased each of the last three cycles.

I'm not too concerned about this year. It was a low year for production of players in the 500 mile radius. Let's wait until there are high 3, 4 and 5 star players in our radius and we don't go for them. The balance was good this year and MR is trying to establish some inroads to pay off in future years.

And there is already proof that we will go after the in 2018. Already two commits and a bunch more offers in the radius.

So much talent in the radius in 2018, the state of Missouri in particular. Alot of highly rated players in the St. Louis area as well as KC

Been thinking about this for awhile but finally got around to really looking at it.

 

Crazy how down Class A in Nebraska has been for several years now when it comes to producing legit Power 5 prospects.

 

Here are the top five prospects from the state according to the 247 Composite and which class they played in high school.  Players the Husker got are highlighted red.  Players are crossed out if they didn't go to a Power 5 school (Marsh originally walked-on at NU then transferred).

 

2018 - Jurgens (B), Williams (A), Mapieu (B), Schlager (B)

2017 - Allen (B), Walker (A), Bradley (A), Strom (A), Kitrell (B)

2016 - Fant (A), Bubak (C), Stille (B), Manchigiah (A), Cromer (B)

2015 - Neal (A), Decker (A), Holtorf (B), Johnson (A), Strong (A)

2014 - Foster (A), Phillips (A), Stoltenberg (B), Gifford (A), Rose (A)

2013 - Banderas (A), LaCouture (A), Minter (A), Bazata (D), Sayles (A)

2012 - Bender (A), Ott (D), Cotton (A), Rahmings (C), Grigsby (A)

2011 - Reeves (B), Sterup (C), Davie (B), Fisher (A), Lampkin (A)

2010 - Rodriguez (B), Evans (B), Dietz (A), Cotton (A), Marsh (A)

2009 - Lechner (A), Sellers (B), Zimmerer (B), Pensick (A), Davis (A)

 

So in the last 10 classes, only 11 class a players have signed with the Huskers and two of them (I believe) were walk-ons.  Six from Class A went to other Power 5 schools though LaCouture shouldn't really count.  

 

Over that same timeframe, Class B has produced 9 Huskers (two walk-ons).  So Class A has only produced two more scholarship Huskers over the last 10 years than Class B has.

Along with the misses in the 500 mile radius, I still hate how we lost our ties to so many good NJ and TX schools.
