The Nebraska football team has had quite a bit of success when it comes to recruiting talented wide receivers to Lincoln over the last few years. Scott Frost and company are hoping that will continue into 2019 and beyond. Now it appears part of that success is going to be trying to get North Carolina wide receiver Nolan Groulx to be a member of the Cornhuskers' 2019 class.

Offered recently, the Cornhuskers going after Groulx might stand out more than most because he just recently became a "free agent." The Cornelius, North Carolina product committed to the Wisconsin Badgers in January and had appeared to be a pretty solid commit.

Then, just shy of a week ago, Groulx decided he wasn't ready to be done with his recruitment.

The receiver, who is a 3-star prospect according to Rivals, announced on his official Twitter account that he was going to be looking elsewhere, but that he still considered the Badgers his top target. Then, Wisconsin fans let him have it with both barrels. There were more than a few truly terrible comments thrown Groulx' way. Now some recruiting experts consider Wisconsin out of the running. That's despite the very unfair fact that the Badger coaches didn't have a say in whether or not the fans behaved that way.

Nolan Groulx is certainly not out of options even if he's not headed to the Dairy State. In total, he has 10 offers with another nine he's taking a good hard look at. There's also no shortage of Power Conference teams in on the receiver, who is considered the 40th best player in the state of North Carolina according to Rivals' rankings.

Among the teams in on the wide receiver is Duke, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, and West Virginia. It would certainly seem as though the Huskers have to be at least among the teams that are the ones to beat. Clearly, both Duke and North Carolina State have the inside hand considering they're located in his home state.

On the other hand, Groulx was committed to Wisconsin. The recruit has shown in the past he was not worried about leaving home and heading halfway across the country. Is the Big Ten enough of a draw to get him to leave the ACC region? The Nebraska Football team appears it wants to find out. With the stable of receivers on offer and on the roster, the coaching staff isn't making an offer like this lightly.
