The #Nebraska Football team hasn't been shy about going after some of the best recruits in the country since Mike Riley and company have arrived. While the team has lost out in a lot of those battles for the best of the best, they've won a couple too. Like anyone else, even one win here or there fuels the coaching staff to continue to set their bar high. Among those who have been swayed to the Cornhuskers' cause, the usual explanation for why they chose to come to Lincoln is because of the relationships they established with the coaching staff. If they win over one of the top receivers in the 2018 class, relationships is why they'll do it.

When you are talking about grabbing a player that has more than 50 scholarship offers, a school is always going to be looking at that one thing that can set them apart. When you're talking about Lincoln, Nebraska, that one thing isn't going to be warm weather and sunny skies all year long.

That can be a detriment when going up against schools in California and Florida. For the Huskers, the secret weapon in recruiting has been an approach where the Nebraska football team attempts to lock up marginally less sought after, but still talented teammates. For Joshua Moore, that teammate could be someone like defensive tackle Josh Walker. Walker has already stated he loves the idea of playing for the Huskers. Can he help rope in one of his most talented teammates? It's a start.
