Nebraska Staffer Reveals Team's Recruiting Mail For Top 2017 Prospects

Mike Riley and his Nebraska staff are looking to improve upon a 6-7 campaign in 2015, and of course, they're hitting the recruiting trail hard to try to get more talent on campus. Thus far, it's been working - as the team has commitments from three four-star players - Tristan Gebbia, Avery Roberts and Keyshawn Johnson.

The past few weeks, staffer Todd McShane has been tweeting out photos of the recruiting mail they've been sending prospects. Most are postcards with notes about Nebraska's accomplishments over the years. He's included the destinations, too, which makes it easy to figure out who they're going to. Some of the players on the list appear to be wideout Tyjon Lindsey, cornerback Darnay Holmes and running back Kylin Hill.

Nebraska's coaches also joke about not playing for "Jake from State Farm" - we'll let you speculate who they're referring to. We'll see if these tactics work.
