Since Matt Rhule took over the Nebraska football program, the efforts and approach to recruiting has been noticeably better. Even while the Huskers' 2025 class doesn't look all that impressive yet, Rhule's staff has a chance to pull off some very big coups in the next few months. 

According to one of the Nebraska football program's top targets, a big reason why the Husker staff is having so much success on the recruiting front is because Rhule isn't "playing fair," in the way he's pursuing recruits.

When Michael Terry III took to social media and posted a video making that claim, he didn't mean that the Nebraska football head coach was cheating. He's not pulling some of the stuff that Rhule has accused other coaches

Terry, the 4-star wide receiver out of Texas who is considered the top athlete in the 2025 class according to 247Sports, is already considered a bit of a Huskers lean. But it looks like his recent trip to Nebraska was better than he could have imagined.

Terry came to Lincoln for the Nebraska spring game and Rhule definitely rolled out the red carpet. The video that the talented athlete posted showed just how much the Cornhuskers head coach and his staff did to make the Texas star feel at home in Memorial Stadium.

That's why what Matt Rhule is doing isn't fair. It stands to reason that Terry feels like maybe the Nebraska football team is outpacing the other schools that are after the athlete with their approach that it's "not fair."

What is clear is that the Cornhuskers continue to do a very good job in pursuing a player who has offers from some of the biggies in the college football world. 

Oregon, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Texas, USC, Utah, Colorado, Alabama, Missouri, Ohio State and Clemson are just some of the dozens of Power 4 teams coming hard after Michael Terry III. 

Should Nebraska football win that race, as it appears they are currently doing, It's a safe bet those other coaches won't think the Huskers are playing fair either.
