After weeks of speculation over the future of Mike Riley and his staff in Lincoln, the ax came down and resulted in the hiring of Scott Frost. Since then, Frost and his staff, which he brought over from Central Florida, have offered approximately 30 new prospects while also establishing relationships with the former staff&#8217;s targets.</p> <p>The action has created a whirlwind in Nebraska recruiting. Although none of the new offer recipients have committed yet, and the current class has only eight members, the good news is that a solid foundation has been built with four 4-star commits and three 3-star pledges, plus a kicker. The class has not endured any scholarship de-commitments since the coaching change, which is a good sign. Nonetheless, Frost and the assistants will have their hands full to fill out the class and bring in a transition class that can translate to success.</p> <h2>Where the Nebraska recruiting class ranks</h2> <p>Because of the de-commitments during the season and the former staff&#8217;s inability to grow the class, Nebraska’s overall recruiting ranking in the Big Ten — and nationally — has diminished considerably over the last couple of weeks. Imminent commitments and the obvious increase in size of the class will raise the ranking, but as of Thursday, the Cornhuskers have the 14th-ranked recruiting class in the Big Ten and the No. 75 class in the country, <a href="https://nebraska.247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/Commits">according to 247Sports</a>.</p> <h2>Latest news for Nebraska recruiting</h2> <p>There&#8217;s been a lot of news in Nebraska recruiting this week.

That prospect might just be Wilson, who at one point committed to Nebraska during his initial recruitment. He flipped that pledge to Oregon, where Frost was the offensive coordinator, before transferring to Garden City (Kan.) Community College. Now, with Frost at Nebraska, the stars have seemingly aligned. The No. 2 JUCO dual-threat quarterback <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-recruiting-terry-wilson-scott-frost-official-visit">will take his official visit</a> to Lincoln this weekend. Will a commitment follow shortly thereafter?</p> <p><strong>S John Huggins, 3 stars, Daytona Beach, Fla. </strong></p> <p>Nebraska has been in the market for a safety this entire cycle and it looks like Huggins will fill that need. After receiving a Nebraska offer over the weekend, the former Florida State commit named the Huskers his leader. Another late offer from the new coaching staff at Florida, in addition to the Seminoles bringing in Willie Taggart, will give the Huskers plenty of competition to secure Huggins&#8217; commitment, even if they are his favorite. Huggins will take an official visit to Louisville this weekend.</p> <p><strong>RB Jeremy Banks, 3 stars, Cordova, Tenn.</strong></p> <p>With no running back in this class and room for a younger back with a chance for significant playing time on the roster, Banks fits in nicely for the Huskers. A large frame of 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds means he will project as a power back, and he has a running style that would conform naturally into the Big Ten. Banks seemed to enjoy his official visit on Nov. 4 so much that <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-recruiting-kalon-gervin-jeremy-banks-chris-bleich-official-visits-northwestern">he said he hopes to return for an unofficial visit</a> before making his decision.

Moos had also spent the previous few weeks meeting with any and every media outlet that requested time. If someone wanted to talk to Moos, he would make it happen.</p> <p>That all changed Nov. 25. It wasn&#8217;t because Moos suddenly disliked the media; he just knew what was ahead.</p> <p>&#8220;I’ll be very busy,&#8221; Moos said the day after the regular season ended. &#8220;This is an amazing media core, which is why I wanted to answer as many questions as I could today. The next time I’ll be available is when I introduce our next coach.&#8221;</p> <p>Sure enough, Moos was available one week later — on Sunday, Dec. 3. He was set to introduce new Nebraska coach Scott Frost.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">*** *** ***</p> <p>Moos has a blueprint for hiring coaches. He&#8217;ll talk about it if you ask, which <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-mike-riley-fired-scott-frost-bill-moos-coaching-search" target="_blank" rel="noopener">he did with Land of 10</a> in early November. To start, he&#8217;s a big believer in &#8220;the right fit.&#8221; Trying to understand how Moos goes about finding that fit for any school, his best example is the hiring of Mike Leach at Washington State.</p> <p>“Every place doesn’t have the same right fit,” Moos told Land of 10. “It doesn’t take long to get a feel for the culture upon my arrival at all of my stops, and sorting out in my mind what would be a good fit, and that leads to who I’m looking at and so forth if you’re going to have turnover in the head-coaching position.</p> <p>&#8220;With Mike Leach, he was such a national personality, a proven track record in regard to his body of work, a national coach of the year, and he runs the air-raid offense that he really helped design. I thought at Washington State that while we were struggling terribly, we could entertain the fans while we were building the program. That was a right fit there.”</p> <p>Getting Leach to Washington State could have been a challenge for Moos. Leach was expected to be a hot candidate for quite a few programs six years ago, so Moos didn&#8217;t waste any time. He bypassed search firms and paid his own way to a meeting in Key West, Fla., in November 2011.</p> <p>Moos is all about the work behind the scenes. He told Land of 10 about working closely with a network of people he trusts to make a hire happen. As that network starts vetting candidates, he works alongside them.</p> <p>At the surface, things may seem quiet, but it&#8217;s an entirely different story below it.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">*** *** ***</p> <p>Moos&#8217; blueprint followed him to Nebraska. Much like he did with Leach at Washington State, he found a network at Nebraska and put things in motion behind the scenes. A key component of that network was Matt Davison, Nebraska&#8217;s new associate athletic director for football.</p> <p>The connection began with former Nebraska coach and athletic director Tom Osborne. Moos was a sponge, absorbing Osborne&#8217;s wisdom and advice. He was also looking for Osborne&#8217;s thoughts on the coaching situation. That&#8217;s when Frost&#8217;s name came up.</p> <p>As the <a href="http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/planes-trains-and-airport-hotels-how-bill-moos-landed-frost/article_4315b804-ebe3-5667-95ea-b81b52c1470c.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Lincoln Journal Star reported</a>, Osborne could have told Moos about Frost himself. Instead, he directed Moos to Davison, who was a close friend of Frost. Fifteen minutes later, Davison was in Moos&#8217; office and the network had been created.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">*** *** ***</p> <p>There was speculation Moos had <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-mike-riley-fired-scott-frost-bill-moos-coaching-search" target="_blank" rel="noopener">made a quick trip to Philadelphia</a> the weekend Nebraska played Penn State. Moos was noticeably absent from the university&#8217;s charter plane to State College, but he offered a reason.</p> <p>“I was trying to buy a condo with my wife,” Moos said. “That consumed most of my day, so I did not travel with the team, and I got there later.”</p> <p>That seemed fishy, so he was pushed on whether he was really in Philadelphia. Moos opted to compliment the city&#8217;s sandwiches before pivoting quickly away from the topic.</p> <p>Once Frost was hired, the truth became known: Moos met with Frost in Philadelphia on Nov. 17.</p> <p>Just like Moos had done six years prior with Leach, he privately made his way to meet a potential new coach. He and his wife, Kendra, chartered a flight from Lincoln, while Davison joined them by train from New York (he had been in Queens for Nebraska men’s basketball matchup with St. John’s).</p> <p>The meeting went well, and Moos knew Frost was &#8220;the right fit.&#8221; Frost still had a decision to make, but Moos was confident he was the guy for Nebraska.</p> <p>After the meeting, Moos made his way to Penn State and watched the Huskers give up 56 points to the Nittany Lions. Frost&#8217;s UCF team, meanwhile, defeated Temple 45-19.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">*** *** ***</p> <p>Moos has long said he doesn&#8217;t fire coaches midseason. He stayed true to his word in how he handled Nebraska&#8217;s situation. Riley was not fired until Nov. 25, the day after the Huskers&#8217; 56-14 loss to Iowa.</p> <p>Within 48 hours, though, everything was taking shape. Frost signed <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-cover-scott-frosts-buyout-ucf-huskers-offer" target="_blank" rel="noopener">a memorandum of understanding</a> with Nebraska, and his UCF team defeated Memphis 62-55 in double-overtime to claim the AAC Championship. Frost later broke the news to his UCF team before getting on a flight from Orlando with several of his assistants. The group landed in Lincoln about midnight.</p> <p>Twelve hours later, Moos had kept his promise to the media and the blueprint was intact. He was ready to talk once again, this time with Frost at his side.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-bill-moos-scott-frost-coaching-blueprint">Nebraska: How Bill Moos used his hiring blueprint to land Scott Frost</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com">Land of 10</a>.</p> Frost's whirlwind Thursday includes recruiting, interviews and an awards show http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/football/frost-s-whirlwind-thursday-includes-recruiting-interviews-and-an-awards/article_5e33c88b-f006-5121-8880-d9981a146ded.html Search Results - JournalStar.com urn:uuid:bf25af63-dc90-d7f9-7305-46e0cf7430e7 Thu, 07 Dec 2017 14:00:00 -0600 Scott Frost has been in the homes and schools of many Nebraska football recruits in his first week as the Huskers' head football coach.

The new running backs coach has been on the West Coast and has now traveled through Texas and the Midwest on behalf of the new Nebraska coaching staff, checking in with longtime targets from the previous staff and introducing new targets to the program.</p> <p>Early Thursday, he checked in with junior college offensive lineman Levon Livingston, who signed with Kentucky before transferring to Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/CoachRHeld?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@CoachRHeld</a> came thru <a href="https://t.co/P8JdFxmfKH">pic.twitter.com/P8JdFxmfKH</a></p> <p>&mdash; leeglizzy (@BigDC202) <a href="https://twitter.com/BigDC202/status/938776942945456128?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">December 7, 2017</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>Livingston was listed at 6-foot-7, 230 pounds in high school but has since gained some weight. He was a member of the 2015 recruiting class, meaning he likely has two seasons of eligibility remaining. He was a 3-star prospect in high school in Washington, D.C., and was the No. 84 offensive tackle in the country, <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Levon-Livingston-36284/high-school-59795">according to the 247Sports composite</a>.</p> <p>Livingston is the latest example of a recruit from the JUCO ranks the new staff is targeting.</p> <p>Sticking with the offensive line, the Huskers offered another lineman Thursday morning in 3-star prospect Hamilton Hall from Atlanta Chamblee Charter. The new staff has stuck with its Southeast roots in this recruiting cycle and seems intent on filling this class with such products.</p> <p><a href="https://nebraska.forums.rivals.com/threads/new-2018-offer-out-in-georgia.197766/">Chad Simmons of Rivals.com</a> reports that an official visit with Hall is in the works. He also writes that Indiana is the likely front-runner for him right now. UCF was one of Hall&#8217;s first offers, so the staff has established a level of familiarity, which why this is moving quickly.</p> <p>Hall is the No. 120 offensive tackle in the country, <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Hamilton-Hall-46038779">per the 247Sports composite</a>, although it&#8217;s likely his 6-5, 315-pound frame entices his future coaches to move him inside. He has an official visit scheduled for Oklahoma this weekend and one at Ole Miss on Jan. 26. His Nebraska visit will come sometime between those two dates, maybe even as early as next weekend. He&#8217;s not expected to commit until late January or early February and sign on the traditional signing day.</p> <h2>More offers go out</h2> <p>As stated above, the staff is singling out the commits of teams in the middle of coaching changes, as is the case with two offers doled out Thursday.</p> <p>One offer went out to <a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/robert-cooper" data-player="Robert Cooper">Robert Cooper</a>, the No. 4 defensive tackle in the country, <a href="https://247sports.com/player/robert-cooper-82463">per the 247Sports composite</a>. He is a top-100 prospect and a supreme talent at 6-foot-2, 377 pounds. He is from Snellville, Ga.
