Nebraska special teams coach Ed Foley remains aggressive on the recruiting trail. The second-year Husker coach has been making visits to high schools all across the state of Nebraska.
Recruiting never stops, even after a player commits to a school. A coaching staff has to remain in constant contact with prospective recruits and committed players.
In their first year under Foley, Nebraska’s kickoff return defense was ranked No. 42 in the nation, surrendering 18.19 yards per return while ranking No. 14 in kickoff returns with an average of 23.92 yards per return.
The Cornhuskers punt return defense ranked No. 64 in the country while giving up 7.58 yards per return. The unit that struggled the most in 2023 was the punt return game, which averaged 3 yards per return for a national ranking of No. 121 overall.
