Scott Frost explains Nebraska's approach to recruiting from transfer portal
The transfer portal has become a new recruiting outlet for every coach in college football. Some are more reliant upon it than others, but just about every program in the sport has seen a benefit in some capacity.
That includes Nebraska and head coach Scott Frost.
Speaking on Sports Nightly this week, Frost discussed Nebraska’s approach to the transfer portal. During the offseason, the Huskers have landed some big players, including former USC running back Markese Stepp and former Montana receiver Samori Toure.
“That’s just the world we’re living in now,” Frost said during the show. “The best thing you can do is be light on your feet.”
Frost mentioned that Nebraska is not the only one taking advantage of the portal. And he’s certainly correct, as a number of B1G programs have landed big-time players because of the transfer portal over the past few seasons.
So far, Nebraska has welcomed in a handful of big-name guys to the program this offseason. The two guys Frost seems most excited about are Stepp and Toure. He described Stepp as a “big and fast kid,” who will allow the younger Huskers backs time to develop in the offense.
As for Toure, Frost says he loves that the receiver comes in with “a ton of catch, a ton of yards and a ton of experience.” The Huskers certainly could use all of that production at the position.
Last year, the Huskers closed the 2020 season with a 3-5 record. Nebraska has yet to post a winning record under Frost.
