Nebraska's new head coach has been killing it on the recruiting trail.

Scott Frost has been Nebraska's head football coach for about two months. It hasn't taken him very long to start having some real success on the recruiting trail.

When Frost took over as the Huskers' head coach in early December, the program's 2018 recruiting class was one of the worst Power 5 classes in the country. It wasn't close to sniffing any top 25 rankings.

That has since changed. A lot.

Frost and the Huskers gained another big commitment this weekend. Four-star safety Cam'Ron Jones committed to Nebraska over Ole Miss, Baylor, UCLA and others.

"He’s just a winner," Jones said of Frost. "Everywhere he’s been, he's won. Same as me, I’m trying to win. I think he can win at Nebraska and get it turned around."

Jones is the 14th recruit to commit to Nebraska since Frost took over. The Huskers now have one of the best classes in the Big Ten.

Nebraska's 2018 class is now ranked the No. 22 class in the country, No. 4 in the Big Ten, by 247Sports. It's even higher on's rankings.

That's a pretty ridiculous improvement since Frost took over. The class was closer to being ranked below No. 100 than it was to the top 25 before he arrived.

Nebraska has gotten a good one in Frost, that's for sure. We'll have to wait to see just how good, but it wouldn't surprise anyone if he's great.
