Nebraska spring game enhances recruiting efforts

Nebraska recruits mingle on the sideline of Memorial Stadium prior to the Huskers Red-White Spring Game, April 15, 2017 (NTV News)

The East sideline at Memorial Stadium was crammed tight like a can of sardines Saturday for the annual Red–White Spring Game.

Amidst the photographers and other personnel, a swarm of Nebraska commits, potential Huskers and kids Big Red is gunning hard for.

When the game was completed, Riley was ear–to–ear because he felt so many were eye–to–eye with what he sees for Nebraska's future.

"I am energized at this very, very moment about this weekend in total," said head coach Mike Riley.

Not to mention a couple of recruits saying they were "N" with Mike Riley and his staff.

"It is so much fun. We are now seeing young men really understand and see what this place is about and what it can be and having our vision that I have," Riley says. "It's exciting. There's been a lot going on, and I thought the football today was great, so I am really pumped up about all this."

Brendan "Bookie" Radley-Hiles stole the show with his announcement prior to spending his weekend at Nebraska, and fans were quick to jump on board and take pictures with the next defensive back for the class of 2018.

Riley also scored the verbal commitment of Tate Wildeman, a product out of Parker, Colo, Sunday morning via Twitter.
