The Nebraska football coaching staff has been busy handing out scholarship offers. Bryson Williams, an in-state player who has been committed to Wisconsin was one of the newest targets.

The Nebraska football team’s newest coaching staff has wasted zero time trying to get as many top targets offered as possible. Starting last night, coaches like Mario Verduzco started contacting as many recruits as possible.

The group stayed busy on Sunday night, as Twitter lit up with a number of players who got new offers. Among that group was one Nebraska kid that Mike Riley and company never really paid much attention to.

Bryson Williams, a three-star defensive tackle from Lincoln Southeast has been a Wisconsin commit since July. It appears as though Frost and company believe they can poach one from the Badgers.

Poaching has been the name of the game since the former UCF coaches became official employees of NU. Most of the players they’ve offered this weekend are committed to other schools.

Williams is a bit different because the school he’s committed to has a head coach. The other players have been committed to Tennessee and Florida State.

During his introductory press conference on Saturday, Frost made it clear he wanted to keep in-state players … in-state. Williams will be the ultimate test for the new head coach.

It’s going to be hard to pull a player away from a school that just finished the regular season 12-1. Perhaps Frost can pull from his own experience when he chose to go to Stanford over the Huskers originally.

If he can plumb the depths of what he was feeling when he left the state, he might be able to use that to keep Williams closer to home. As it’s been rather obvious that Scott Frost has been paying attention from afar, he’s probably seen the damage done to the Nebraska football team when in-state players come back to have big performances against the Huskers.
