The Nebraska football team has been shifting into overdrive when it comes to the close of the 2019 recruiting cycle. They have sent out a ton of offers over the last two weeks. To some degree, those efforts came to a culmination on Saturday morning when they hosted several of their remaining top prospects for the contest against Michigan State.

The weekend and the game became even more important when the early kick-off put visits in jeopardy for some players. It appears that a few players not being able to make the trip might have been a blessing in disguise.

It appears the smaller group of recruits allowed the current players and the coaching staff to give those who did attend more attention. Several top prospects voiced their reaction to the visit after they got back home.

Lloyd Summerall on his Nebraska football visit

It's always interesting to note that some of the prospects that come check out the Cornhuskers have never seen snow. They come from all over the country and more of a few of them hail from warm weather states like Florida and California.

Lloyd Sumerall is a defensive end from Lakeland, Florida who got his first real taste of winter weather in Lincoln. Sometimes that can stand out for a recruit. The Huskers certainly hope it does. Summerall is a 4-star defensive stud who is ranked as the 15th best defensive end in the class by 247Sports. Most of the rest of the schools going after this player are from the Southeast.

Maybe weather quite a bit different from his hometown can be a lure.

Monroe Mills

Monroe Mills is an offensive lineman who took his second visit to Lincoln on Saturday.

The offensive tackle is a 2020 prospect and received an offer from Kansas. He's also clearly a smart cookie, which is something that can be a bonus for an offensive lineman. The Columbia, Missouri native should be getting more interest as his class takes center stage in recruiting.

Travion Ford

Travion Ford looks like he's going to be one of the top targets of the 2021 class when things are all said and done.

He came to Lincoln on an unofficial visit and left with a scholarship offer. Ford is another defensive end out and yet another player from the state of Missouri who decided to take in the sights. He's already got offers from Kentucky, LSU, and Tennessee so it's no wonder the Nebraska football team decided he needed to get an offer from them as well.

Dru Mathis

Dru Mathis stood out from the bunch of Nebraska football visitors because he's coming to Lincoln from the JUCO ranks. An inside linebacker from Moorpark College, he's considering the Huskers, Illinois, and Baylor. It appears from his reaction to being on the Memorial Stadium turf in that Cornhusker uniform that he liked what he saw. Clearly, Scott Frost and the rest of the coaches have liked what they've seen from the Junior College star.
