Young recruiters giving the Big Ten a boost

Six Big Ten teams are in the top 20 of the 2018 recruiting class rankings, and a big reason is the infusion of youth in the assistant coaching ranks.

Big Ten freshmen who could make an immediate impact

Michigan's Donovan Peoples-Jones looks ready to make an instant impact, but he's not the only one, as the Big Ten's incoming freshman class is strong.

I'm told that Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp is headed to Bucs rookie camp on a tryout. He had 2,474 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns in college. Suffered a knee injury during bowl practices, missed his pro day and only had clearance to begin training about three weeks before he worked out for teams.

Nebraska is currently holding on to the No. 10 ranked recruiting class in 2018. Coach Mike Riley and his staff have four ESPN 300 commitments, including receiver Manuel Allen, athlete Eric Fuller Jr., Brendan Radley-Hiles and tight end Cameron Jurgens. The four ESPN 300 commitments already in the 2018 class is the same number of ESPN 300 commitments Nebraska had in the entire 2017 class.

In light of Nebraska's recruiting success this weekend, it's easy to imagine a sideline at the spring game next year full of official visitors, on track to be allowed in April through June 2018. Look for coach Mike Riley to limit numbers, though. With no chance to sign visiting prospects until the following December, Nebraska plans to primarily host spring official visitors only from whom it feels a good chance exists to get a commitment. "You're going to have to know the player real well," the coach said this week. If a recruit leaves Lincoln undecided after a spring official, Riley said, "that's not a good situation."

Freshman stars: Tyjon Lindsey

The lack of depth at receiver in Lincoln combined with Lindsey's electric ability in the return game provide a great opportunity for him to become a playmaker next season.

Les Miles, speaking at Nebraska, says he "is probably a better coach today than when I left LSU" in September. Miles reiterated that he still wants to coach in college.
