Here's how the Huskers' head coach won over the mother of a recruit.

Caleb Tannor, a four-star defensive lineman, is one of Nebraska's top recruits in the 2018 class. He committed to the Huskers last week.

The elite recruit chose Nebraska over Auburn and Florida, among other programs. You can view his announcement here.

Nebraska landed Tannor in part because of how the program's new head coach, Scott Frost, acted around the recruit's mother. He won her over with his work ethic and manners while visiting her at her place of work, an elementary school.

From Huskers Illlustrated:

Frost stopped in to visit with Felicia about her son and Nebraska, but she was busy cleaning up the cafeteria.

Nebraska defensive backs coach Travis Fisher said Frost didn’t miss a beat. He started grabbing chairs and putting things away.

“Coach Frost goes into the school and his mom is in the cafeteria and he’s right there helping here stack chairs,” Fisher said. “They were just there stacking chairs. That won the mom over real quick.”

The list of reasons to love Scott Frost continues to grow. Nebraska got a great one.

Tannor, meanwhile, should be an instant contributor to the Huskers in 2018. The 6-foot-3, 223-pound pass rusher is ranked the No. 19 player at his position.

Nebraska's 2018 class is ranked the No. 22 class in the country by 247Sports.
