Not a surprise here, as Ace said in the recruiting roundup he doesn't really know the current coaching staff at Nebraska well (as he wasn't recruited by them).  Could very well be the first recruiting pick up of Harbuagh era.

Man I can't help but think there's going to be a crazy, rapid succession of UM commitments coming soon. I hope Ace has already gotten started on some "Hello" post templates or something.

JMFH is an absolute machine, and I get the sense that all the coaches know his expectation is that they will bring the same intensity and work ethic each day. Fun times!

I would argue that the class is not really taking that much time, it has only been 1 week since the dead period ended. I think allowing people at least the time to visit campus once or meet the coaches once is totally fair. I think the class will have 2 or 3 members by this time next week.

Looks like Riley was at Jones' house tonight in a last ditch effort to keep him.

I wonder what a coach is thinking at that point after Harbaugh was just there.

What is interesting here is that this dragnet of sorts that a newly assembled staff has thrown out there is apparently on its way to hopefully producing some interesting results, even to the point of this and having players decommit from other schools. I fully expect them to recruit some kids up to NSD, but when you hear that someone has decommited and will visit Michigan, you start to wonder if there is indeed a "Harbaugh Effect".
