Nebraska Head Coach Mike Riley introduced his first Husker recruiting class on Wednesday. The 2015 signing class includes 20 scholarship players that hail from 13 states.
Riley was hired at Nebraska on Dec. 4 and he and his staff quickly put together a class that includes seven offensive players, 12 on the defensive side and one specialist.
Riley said selling the University of Nebraska to recruits was a rewarding experience for him and his staff.
”I think kids also, and especially parents who have input, look at the big picture of going to college and what does this university have to offer. This is where Nebraska is off the charts. The resources for young men here, academic support, life skills, nutrition, just go down the line in all of those things and it is at a high, high level. So they’re joining a place that really knows what it is talking about when it is talking about student athletes and what you can accomplish here. That part of it, that is pretty easy.”
