Nebraska football recruiting continues to churn right along despite the fact that the Huskers do not have a full-time head coach yet. It’s been mentioned that the Huskers are going to have a pretty important recruiting weekend with Indiana coming to town. That includes at least one in-state recruit the Cornhuskers are going to try and steal away from a former rival.

Nebraska football recruiting never really stops and the Husker staff almost certainly understands that other teams are coming after the commits. After all, it wasn’t that long ago that NU commit Aidyn Doss announced none other than Indiana had issued him an official offer. This time around, the Cornhuskers are going after Iowa State commit Beni Ngoyi.

The Omaha World-Herald broke the news of Ngoy’s visit and it’s certainly a bit of a surprise considering that he committed to the Cyclones just a few months back. The wide receiver, who is rated as a 3-star prospect by 247Sports might have a couple of reasons to think better about his decision.

Nebraska football recruiting going hard after in-state prospect

Ngoyi is a star for Lincoln high and when it comes to Nebraska football recruiting, there has been a special focus on in-state prospects since Mickey Joseph took over the head coaching duties. Perhaps Ngoyi is getting a bit more attention now that Frost isn’t at the helm.

Of course, it appears that for now, even a visit from the wide receiver isn’t going to change things all that drastically. On3 currently still has Iowa State as the overwhelming favorite to land the prospect.

Of course, that’s before he comes to see what the Huskers have on offer when it comes to a full stadium during a night game. Should the Cornhuskers find a way to beat Indiana on Saturday night. Should they get that victory, it will likely equate to a few Nebraska football recruiting wins as well.
