Recruiting: Husker walk-on event draws large response from in-state prospects

December 14, 2017 GMT

Nebraska sent out invitations and used the hashtag #HomeGrown to bring prospects to its walk-on event on Wednesday night.

There was a large response as the Huskers hosted over 40 in-state players and potential walk-ons. The evening program consisted of meeting the coaching staff, financial information (cost and benefits), a Husker player panel and a tour of the facilities.

The group includes a large number of All-Nebraska players and players that committed to walking on at Nebraska and the former coaching staff led by Mike Riley.

Three players in attendance have been offered a scholarship at the FCS level. Four-time All-Nebraska selection Moses Bryant (North Dakota), Lincoln Southwest linebacker Anthony Banderas (South Dakota), Omaha Central wide receiver Jalen Harris (Tennessee-Martin, Campbell). The majority of the attendees have Division II or NAIA offers.
