Meanwhile, 6 of the 7 (way too) early 2010 top 25 lists have Nebraska in the top 10, with 2 of them ranking the Huskers as high as #5. The outlier places them #13.
I've never looked at Scout, I've always followed Rivals. I've been following that site for years. And yes, while it is inexact, it is relative. When you continuously recruit highly rated players AND combine that with good coaching, then good things will happen. (Ok, most of the time. )

And hey, having a small class can be a good thing. That means you have tons of returning players.
