After finishing its season at 4-8, Nebraska football missed out on a bowl by two games. Scott Frost's staff is looking to take advantage of the situation on the recruiting trail.

Huskers coaches are going to be all over the place over the next few weeks. From the Omaha World-Herald:

“Ryan Held plans to hit at least five states the first week. Greg Austin doesn’t think he’ll need to leave the country, but his passport is handy just in case. Barrett Ruud knows he won’t see his wife much in the next couple of weeks.

Ask any Nebraska coach where they’ll be the next three weeks and they laugh. Everywhere, hopefully, as they aim to close the 2019 class and continue to search for difference-making talent wherever it might be.”

Nebraska's class currently features 21 players, and ranks No. 22 in the country. The staff isn't done yet, either.

This weekend, the focus will be in Lincoln, with a number of big Nebraska football recruits coming to town.

Three-star defensive end Jamin Graham out of Alabama recently hosted Frost. Now, the Nebraska staff will return the favor.

He is the headliner of the visits this weekend. From 247Sports:

The Alabama defensive end or outside linebacker is coming up to Lincoln just days after hosting the Nebraska head coach. Graham wants to see Lincoln and get a feel for the community, the football program and the coaching staff.

Nebraska likes Graham because he’s an athletic outside linebacker with good upside and he’s got very unique measurables. The defender is considering Nebraska, along with Southern Miss, where he’ll visit next week and he’s been hearing regularly from Ole Miss and Virginia as well. It’s not a given that Graham decides to commit and sign in December at this time.

Junior college defensive back Tony Wallace, a former Nebraska recruit out of high school until he signed with Arizona, is back involved with the Huskers as well. After Rich Rodriguez's dismissal, he opted to head to community college.

The team will also bring a number of current commits back to campus, which can definitely help solidify their decisions heading into the Early Signing Period, which begins on December 19, and help recruit the uncommitted players coming to campus.
