This class has me jazzed. I think we have now a terrific core of players, from '15, '16 and '17 classes, from which to build.

 

We're probably not ever going to be able to recruit at the level of Alabama or Ohio State consistently. But as long as we're in the top 20, and get great coaching, I think we'll be fine.

 

The skill players on offense in this class are on paper outstanding. Our lineman recruits on both sides of the ball I think are drastically under-rated.

 

For example, DT Deontre Thomas just might be the stud of this class.

 

Mike Riley has proven we wants to win, and win at an elite level. I think it'll happen.

2019 may be an exception with some highly rated in-state guys, but for the most part, Nebraska kids are going to drag the average down.  Frost has said multiple times he wants to keep Nebraska guys home, and maybe he'll do it mostly with the walk-on program, but the guys that deserve scholarships are still rarely going to be above a 3-star average.  I see no problem with this unless your goal is to get highly ranked classes.  Give scholarships out to the ones that deserve it, try to get a bunch of walk-ons, and then go get the best players you can from anywhere in the country.  500-mile radius is fine, but recruiting hotbeds where the coaches have ties works just fine too.

I don't doubt one bit that Mike Riley wanted to win and win at an elite level.  He just showed that he couldn't surround himself with a staff that would allow him to do it.  Or hold his players to a regimine that would allow them to do that.  Or gameplan and make adjustments that would result in it.  Or....
