St. John Bosco junior linebacker picked up an offer from the Huskers on Monday and is in the process of planning a visit to Nebraska.</p> <p>&#8220;Still nailing down a date, but it will be in the the next 30-to-60 days,&#8221; Lytle told Land of 10. &#8220;The spring game would be perfect.&#8221;</p> <p>The spring game on April 21 will be a key recruiting event for the Huskers.</p> <p>Lytle plans to complete a majority of his visits during the spring. He has a tentative commitment timeline of making his choice sometime this summer.</p> <p>&#8220;Nebraska is a top program that I will strongly consider and will be among my top schools,&#8221; Lytle said.</p> <p>Offensive coordinator Troy Walters, Lytle&#8217;s area recruiter, extended the scholarship offer. He had talks with inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud before the offer.</p> <p>&#8220;The conversation [with Walters] was great and he let me know how I fit within their defense,&#8221; Lytle said. &#8220;He liked my versatility. I was communicating with Coach Ruud prior to the offer and then got a note to call Coach Walters.&#8221;</p> <p>The offer was a special one for Lytle.</p> <p>&#8220;I was extremely excited,&#8221; he said. &#8220;It’s a school on my short list that I really wanted an opportunity to play at.&#8221;</p> <p>Lytle said he knows quite a bit about Nebraska&#8217;s program.</p> <p>&#8220;I had interest in Nebraska prior to the offer purely based on their strong history and the new staff,&#8221; Lytle said. &#8220;It blows my mind that the spring game is sold out.&#8221;</p> <p>The fan response Lytle has seen on Twitter since he announced the offer has been &#8220;pretty cool,&#8221; he said.</p> <p>Lytle lived in Orlando, Fla., for five years, so he was familiar with UCF and had followed the program. What he saw from Scott Frost and the coaching staff there the last two seasons impressed him. It definitely helps the Huskers&#8217; case in recruiting him.</p> <p>&#8220;It&#8217;s definitely an influence,&#8221; Lytle said. &#8220;They’ve proven they can turn a program around in a short period of time.&#8221;</p> <p>Outside of Nebraska, Lytle holds 37 offers. On Wednesday alone, he picked up offers from Clemson, California and Vanderbilt. The other schools recruiting him hardest include Texas A&amp;M, TCU, Ole Miss, Arizona State, Nebraska, UCLA, Duke, Illinois, Pitt, Minnesota, Virginia and Utah.</p> <p>There are <a href="https://247sports.com/PlayerInstitution/Spencer-Lytle-at-St-John-Bosco-211152/CurrentExpertPredictions">two 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions</a> for Lytle at this time, one in favor of Minnesota and the other cast for UCLA.</p> <p>Lytle is the No. 33 outside linebacker and No. 490 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports composite. Walters has told him he fits nicely into what Nebraska wants to accomplish on defense, and recruiting edge rushers will be a priority for the Huskers.</p> <p>&#8220;I think the scheme fits my ability well,&#8221; Lytle said. &#8220;I played that all last year. I played in coverage, up on the line rushing or containing, to covering the tight end, slot or running back in man [coverage].&#8221;</p> <p>He also slid to middle linebacker when his team went with a nickel defense.</p> <p>Lytle&#8217;s favorite athlete is Carolina Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson.</p> <p>&#8220;Versatile player that can play any position on the field, a linebacker with safety speed and coverage,&#8221; Lytle said of Thompson. &#8220;He&#8217;s a commander on the field and a great leader.&#8221;</p> <h2>Greg Austin pleased with incoming line talent</h2> <p>Nebraska brought in two offensive linemen in the 2018 recruiting class, a pair of 3-star prospects: <a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/will-farniok" data-player="Will Farniok">Will Farniok</a> and <a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/willie-canty" data-player="Willie Canty">Willie Canty</a>.</p> <p>It&#8217;s no surprise that Austin sees Farniok, a Sioux Falls, S.D., native, as a inside guy. All three of Farniok&#8217;s older brothers played college football at the Power 5 level, which Austin likes, and Matt Farniok is a redshirt sophomore lineman for the Huskers.</p> <p>“Tough kid,” Austin said when describing Farniok. “He comes from a good lineage of brothers … Matt’s pushing Will day to day in the weight room.</p> <p>“Great, smart kid. He’s already in the fold working hard. Natural center ability.&#8221;</p> <p>Austin said his long relationship with Canty <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-recruiting-willie-canty-greg-austin-offensive-line-louisville">ultimately paid off.</a></p> <p>“A guy we’ve been on for a very long time,&#8221; Austin said. &#8220;We established relationships with him from our days back at UCF. A big, athletic, gritty kid.</p> <p>“In this offense as an offensive tackle, you have to do a good job on the edges,&#8221; Austin said, noting the need to continue developing tackle depth. &#8220;You’re playing some really good defensive end talent in this conference. We think he’s going to be a guy that can help us out here soon.&#8221;</p> <p><strong><em>Missing out on Nebraska recruiting?

Grayson</strong></p> <p>Pappoe has preliminary plans to take an official visit to Nebraska during the fall for a game. There&#8217;s also a chance he swings by campus for a visit sometime this spring. Linebackers coach Barrett Ruud and area recruiter Sean Beckton, also the Huskers&#8217; tight ends coach, will go after Pappoe hard. However, it will be difficult to pry him away from Georgia, with Clemson also as a contender.</p> <p><strong>QB <a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/max-duggan" data-player="Max Duggan">Max Duggan</a>, 4 stars, Council Bluffs (Iowa) Lewis Central</strong></p> <p>There are several regional recruits Nebraska should capitalize on and Duggan sits atop that list. Quarterback will be a priority once again for Frost and Nebraska, and Duggan would be a nice fit for the offense. Mike Riley&#8217;s staff built a solid foundation with Duggan and it seems like the new staff has followed suit. Duggan is expected to commit during the springtime, so if Nebraska can continue to move quickly with him, it will be the favorite. The signal caller holds offers from top programs around the country, so the Huskers will have their hands full.</p> <p><strong>LB Nick Henrich, 4 stars, Omaha (Neb.) Burke</strong></p> <p>With two of the top four in-state prospects already on board, the state&#8217;s No. 2 prospect will also be key to add to the class.

Burke</strong></p> <p>Henrich&#8217;s teammate and the state&#8217;s top player in the 247Sports composite, Hickman also plays a key position in Frost&#8217;s offense. A tight end can basically function as a receiver, meaning Hickman will have plenty of opportunities to catch the ball.

Be sure to check out previous editions of <a href="https://www.landof10.com/collection/nebraska-recruiting-news-recruits-the-harvest">The Harvest here.</a></em></strong></p> <hr /> <h2>Nebraska offers 4 tight ends in 24 hours</h2> <p>Nebraska brought in two tight ends in the 2018 class: 4-star prospect Cameron Jurgens and 3-star prospect Katerian Legrone. Both offer slightly different skill sets. Jurgens can operate as more of a H-back in the offense, while Legrone can function better in the slot and as a pure receiving threat.</p> <p>It&#8217;s clear the Huskers are seeking diversity at the position in the 2019 class, too. In the span of 24 hours, Nebraska offered four tight ends. Let&#8217;s take a closer look at them.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/hudson-henry" data-player="Hudson Henry">Hudson Henry</a>, 4 stars, Little Rock (Ark.) Pulaski Academy </strong></p> <p>Henry is the No. 1 tight end in the class and the No. 43 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Arkansas is the heavy favorite to land the 6-foot-5, 225-pound prospect. Notre Dame, which hosted him for a junior day last month, also is considered a contender. Henry holds 21 offers, including ones from Big Ten programs Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin, where he took an unofficial visit last month. He unofficially visited Vanderbilt this month.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.landof10.com/recruiting/player/jalen-wydermyer" data-player="Jalen Wydermyer">Jalen Wydermyer</a>, 3 stars, Dickinson, Texas</strong></p> <p>The 22nd-ranked tight end prospect in the class, Wydermyer stands 6-4 and weighs 225 pounds. Miami and Texas A&amp;M are thought to be the leaders for his commitment. His recruitment has picked up quite a bit this month. Ole Miss and Georgia joined Nebraska in offering on Wednesday. The Aggies, Florida and North Carolina offered in February.</p> <p><strong>Elijah Mojarro, no rating, Orange (Calif.) Lutheran</strong></p> <p>Mojarro has measurements comparable to Henry and Wydermyer, checking in at 6-4 and 225 pounds. The Huskers became his fourth offer Wednesday, joining Duke, Fresno State and Northwestern. He can be a factor in the passing and running games. Mojarro is a 3-star prospect on 247Sports, but does not have an industry-generated composite ranking yet.</p> <p><strong>Brayden Liebrock, not yet rated, Chandler, Ariz. </strong></p> <p>Another big body, Liebrock is 6-5 and 230 pounds. He held 10 offers before Nebraska jumped in, with Notre Dame, Texas and Ohio State involved. Arizona and Arizona State also have offered. The Huskers have taken an interest in Arizona high school prospects in the 2019 cycle, and it will be interesting to see if they can land a few.</p> <h2>Huskers offer trio of JUCO ofensive linemen</h2> <p>Offensive line will be another priority in the 2019 class. Running backs coach and junior college recruiting coordinator Ryan Held has been busy recently, offering three JUCO tackles. The expectation here is that if a JUCO lineman does wind up with the Huskers, he would be able to make an immediate impact.</p> <p>Here&#8217;s who was on the receiving end of those offers:</p> <p><strong>Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, Henderson, Nev. </strong></p> <p>Aumavae-Laulu does not have a composite rating, but 247Sports has him as a 4-star prospect and the top junior college tackle in his class. Southern California is the favorite for Aumavae-Laulu, who attends Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas. Aumavae-Laulu has a massive frame at 6-7, 365 pounds.</p> <p><strong>Corey Luciano, Danville, Calif. </strong></p> <p>Luciano, 6-4 and 265 pounds, holds seven offers. Minnesota, Syracuse, USC and Maryland are among the interested schools. He is playing his JUCO ball at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Calif.</p> <p><strong>Anthony Whigan, Great Mills, Md. </strong></p> <p>Whigan attends Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pa. He is 6-5 and 290 pounds and holds offers from West Virginia, Cincinnati and Maryland. Whigan plans to check out all three schools this spring and hopes to attend Penn State&#8217;s spring game.</p> <h2>Wrapping up other offers</h2> <p>Nebraska also offered a running back, a wide receiver and a defensive end this week:</p> <p><strong>DE Justin Eboigbe, 4 stars, Forest Park, Ga.</strong></p> <p>The Huskers appear intent on wrangling as many pass rushers from Georgia as possible. Eboigbe is the No. 9 strongside defensive end in the class and the No. 117 overall prospect. He&#8217;s an impressive physical specimen, at 6-5 and 260 pounds. Eboigbe has taken unofficial visits to Georgia and Tennessee.</p> <p><strong>RB Kenan Christon, 3 stars, San Diego Madison</strong></p> <p>Nebraska became Christon&#8217;s seventh offer. He&#8217;s a small, shifty back who is 5-10 and 185 pounds. Christon does not have a composite ranking, but 247Sports sees him as a 3-star prospect. Southern California is considered the favorite for him.</p> <p><strong>WR Drake London, 3 stars, Moorpark, Calif. </strong></p> <p>Scott Frost&#8217;s offense favors speed, but there&#8217;s also a necessity for size among the receivers. That&#8217;s where London, who is 6-4, would fit in. He is the 72nd-ranked receiver in the class and the No. 558 overall prospect. Arizona State, Oregon, Southern California and Virginia are all in contention for London.</p> <p><strong><em>Missing out on Nebraska recruiting?

He&#8217;ll be leaning on Nebraska legend Tom Osborne, but Frost isn&#8217;t getting into specifics on the coach&#8217;s role.</p> <p>&#8220;Coach was in here this morning and I’m going to lean on him for wisdom and advice,&#8221; Frost<a href="http://www.omaha.com/huskers/blogs/shatel-scott-frost-sheds-light-on-patience-physicality-hard-work/article_2d489d8a-32a4-5cfb-a208-8fbfcc412186.html"> said in an interview with the Omaha World-Herald&#8217;s Tom Shatel</a> . &#8220;We’ve got to be careful with how we use Coach because there are rules against someone who has been with the university helping coach on certain things. Any possible way we can use him I will. He’s been up in the office quite a bit here. I’m thrilled that he’s coming in. He looks happy that he’s able to come in and there are people in the offices that he’s comfortable being around. Makes me happy for Coach.&#8221;</p> <div class="subscriber-only"> <p>Frost has mentioned Osborne often early on in his tenure at Nebraska. It&#8217;s easy to see why the coach has rubbed off on his National Championship-winning quarterback. <a href="http://www.omaha.com/huskers/blogs/shatel-scott-frost-sheds-light-on-patience-physicality-hard-work/article_2d489d8a-32a4-5cfb-a208-8fbfcc412186.html">Frost tells Shatel </a>that patience was an attractive quality from the university, one that should aid in his attempts to bring Osborne-level quality back to Nebraska.</p> </div> <p>&#8220;That’s honestly one of the reasons why our coaching staff decided this was the best opportunity,&#8221; <a href="http://www.omaha.com/huskers/blogs/shatel-scott-frost-sheds-light-on-patience-physicality-hard-work/article_2d489d8a-32a4-5cfb-a208-8fbfcc412186.html">he said in an interview with Shatel</a>. &#8220;We knew that we would have unanimous support here with the state of the football program as it was, with our familiarity with the state, this is one of the few places where they would be patient with us and let us build it the right way.</p> </div> <div class="subscriber-only"> <p>&#8220;Building it here is not going to be as simple as going out and recruiting 15 five-star players and putting them on the field as freshmen and watching them play. It’s going to be through culture, through hard work and development.

At the time of his Nov. 17 official visit to Washington State, the rumors were louder than ever about the future of former Nebraska coach Mike Riley. Despite having been committed to the Huskers since April 16, Wildeman wanted to be sure the decision was right.</p> <p>The visit to Washington State — as well as the one to Colorado State on Dec. 1 — created some buzz. Wildeman remembers being misquoted that he would even flip to Washington State from Nebraska after his visit. That wasn&#8217;t the case.</p> <p>&#8220;I was definitely waiting to see what was going down in Lincoln before I flipped,&#8221; the Parker (Colo.) Legend High star told Land of 10. &#8220;It wasn’t like I was just going to do that without seeing what was going to happen.”</p> <p>Wildeman&#8217;s visits to the Cougars and Rams, as well as Nebraska&#8217;s hiring of coach Scott Frost, ultimately confirmed everything Wildeman already knew: Nebraska was where he wanted to be. He wasn&#8217;t the only one, either, as other remaining members of the Huskers&#8217; 2018 recruiting class did the same.</p> <p>“We went out and saw other facilities, and everywhere is kind of the same with the tours and the academics but it’s really where you feel comfortable and who you feel comfortable with,&#8221; Wildeman said. &#8220;In the end, those visits verified for me that there wasn’t another place I wanted to be except Lincoln.”</p> <p><em>Here’s the rest of the Q&amp;A with Wildeman:</em></p> <p><strong>What school came in second? Could it have done anything differently to persuade you?</strong></p> <p>“I would say Washington State. The biggest thing was being close to home, though. Lincoln was the closest place to me to still have my family come and be able to watch me.”</p> <p><strong>I forgot Washington State was high on your list. What did you think when Bill Moos left Washington State to become the athletic director at Nebraska?</strong></p> <p>“To have that happen, it really solidified how good Nebraska is for me. The fact that he clearly wanted to be in Lincoln said a lot.”</p> <p><strong>What was the most creative thing a school or coach did to get your attention?</strong></p> <p>“I don’t know if this is most creative, but I feel like there are a lot of false promises. They’ll tell you that if you come to their school, you’ll start right away. I think that was the biggest thing, because you can’t really guarantee a kid that he’s going to start. You’ve never seen him in a college environment or what they’re doing physically. All they have to judge is from high school film.”</p> <p><strong>What&#8217;s the biggest secret you kept during the recruiting process?</strong></p> <p>“I was definitely very upset when Nebraska was having all of its struggles last season. It was really tough to see them lose, especially considering all of the hype around them and our recruiting class before the start of last season. To see the guys in my class start to lose faith and jump ship was tough to see. When everyone left, I think there was only a few of us left that were still there and still solid. It was hard because we had to stay together and keep it together as much as possible.”</p> <p><strong>Your class looks a lot different today than it did originally. What have these last two months been like for you?</strong></p> <p>“It’s been great meeting a lot of new people. I’ve also become the main recruiter. Before, it was a lot about other recruits who had the spotlight. I’m not a big spotlight guy and I don’t really care about all of that jazz, but I had to kind of lead the recruiting and help get guys on board. It was nice to meet new people and I’m very confident in their abilities.  I feel like this class with the guys we’re getting is even better than it was before.”</p> <p><strong>What is the funniest thing any head coach said to you during the entire recruiting process?</strong></p> <p>“When [Washington State coach] Mike Leach came over for dinner one night for a home visit, everything that man said was really funny overall. There wasn’t anything specific, but just that dinner was really funny. It’s also funny to see how fast his head is turning and how he’ll go from one thing to the other and be completely off topic but then he’s back to talking about football before he’s off on another topic that’s not even closely related to football.</p> <p>&#8220;But he’s a really good guy, and a really funny dude.”</p> <p><strong>What was the funniest story from one of your recruiting trips?</strong></p> <p>“It was probably with Coach Leach. He has a lot of things in his office. It’s like a museum. He has a stuffed cougar in there and a stuffed pirate. He loves pirates. He talked about that a lot and it was really funny.”</p> <p><strong>What was your biggest regret during the recruiting process?</strong></p> <p>“I wouldn’t say I have any regrets. I think I played it pretty well. I feel like I could have gone on a couple more visits just to solidify my decision even more. I would have liked to have gone to Notre Dame and Oklahoma State for visits, but I felt really confident and I wanted to sign early. I really wanted to sign during that early signing period because I could then help get more guys on board if they could see I was all-in. That was the biggest thing.”</p> <p><strong>Which school disappointed you the most during recruiting?</strong></p> <p>“The University of Colorado definitely disappointed me. They came in really early in the recruiting process my junior year. They were sending me a bunch of stuff, I was visiting almost every single weekend and then they just altogether stopped talking to me. They never offered, they stopped talking, nothing. That happened in January of last year, so a year ago.</p> <p>“Parker isn&#8217;t that far from Boulder. It’s definitely more like the hometown school. And I actually talked to [Lincoln (Neb.) Southeast defensive tackle and Wisconsin signee] Bryson Williams about that. He got offered by Iowa, Wisconsin and many others, but not Nebraska. He was like, ‘What happened?’ It had been his dream forever. I really felt for him. I don’t really know what was going through the mind of the old coaching staff on that because I’ve seen his film and he looked like a beast to me.”</p> <p><strong>If you were in charge of the NCAA, what&#8217;s the one rule you would change with respect to recruiting?</strong></p> <p>“I wish we could get some free gear. I wanted some gear, because I love that stuff. I remember at my official to Nebraska, they gave us these sweats and I kept thinking I could keep it but they said we had to give it back. We were upset about that, so that’s the rule I would change.”</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-recruiting-tate-wildeman-lincoln">Nebraska signee Tate Wildeman: &#8216;There wasn’t another place I wanted to be except Lincoln&#8217;</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com">Land of 10</a>.</p> Bracketology: Penn State ahead of Nebraska on bubble in ESPN projection https://www.landof10.com/big-ten/penn-state-nebraska-basketball-bracketology-ncaa-tournament Land of 10 urn:uuid:e6619085-2076-d299-4530-b32cf1947535 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 11:23:37 -0600 <img width="400" height="211" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/cmgverticals/image/upload/c_crop,g_north_west,h_627,w_1191,x_4,y_0/f_auto,q_auto/h_211,w_400/v1519319763/PSU-Nebraska_aorugu.png" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="penn state-nebraska-basketball-bracketology-ncaa tournament" style="display: block; margin-bottom: 5px; clear:both;max-width: 100%;" /><p>Nebraska and Penn State meet on the hardwood Sunday afternoon in a game that could be a make-or-break contest for both teams&#8217; NCAA Tournament hopes.
