Nebraska football target leaning towards the Huskers?

The Nebraska football team might have got its first sign that one of the recruits it hosted this weekend was a Husker lean.

Scott Frost and the rest of the Nebraska football staff had a big weekend. More than a few of the school’s top recruiting targets were in Lincoln, including running back Greg Bell.

While most of the recruits have been relatively quiet, Bell took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon and tweeted out one short message. That message was “change the culture.”

Considering what the culture of the Huskers was under Bo Pelini and Mike Riley, it’s safe to assume that message was some kind of endorsement of what Frost and his assistants are looking to do.

While Riley and his staff have largely been trying to get rid of the hostility and anger of the Pelini regime, it seems as if the prevailing narrative was that the Cornhuskers had become soft. The new Nebraska football coaching staff are looking to bring a toughness back to the team.

If their mantra has also been that they are trying to change the culture, it looks like Bell is buying in. Whether that means he’s going to be one of the first commits of the new era or not is yet to be seen.

We’ve never really seen what the new staff can do when it comes to hosting recruits. The group seems to have a real energy about the way it goes about trying to get recruits but we don’t know how that is going to play out with higher ranked targets.

Most of those same recruits, such as Adrian Martinez and Terry Morris are likely headed home or already home. Now it becomes a waiting game.

At the very least, it looks like the Nebraska football coaching staff made some kind of good impression on Greg Bell. Good news today would be welcome.
