The brunt of the work came in the current recruiting cycle. Nebraska added five players to its 2022 class. In chronological order:
* Tight end Chase Androff (Lakeville, Minnesota).
* Quarterback Richard Torres (San Antonio).
* Running back Ashton Hayes (Reno, Nevada).
* Wide receiver Grant Page (Boulder, Colorado).
* Outside linebacker Jake Appleget (Lincoln).
That quintet joins the first two pledges in the class — inside linebacker Ernest Hausmann (Columbus) and wide receiver Victor Jones Jr. (Orlando, Florida) — as an early foundation for what is currently expected to be a much smaller class.
Who did Nebraska not get?
Among the 20 class of 2022 players that officially visited Nebraska in June, three have verbally pledged elsewhere: defensive lineman Nico Davillier (Maumelle, Arkansas) committed to Arkansas, offensive lineman Ashton Craig (Lawrenceburg, Indiana) to Notre Dame and wide receiver Landon Samson (Southlake, Texas) to South Carolina.
Who has decision dates coming up?
Defensive back James Monds III (Fort Pierce, Florida) and running back Justin Williams (Dallas, Georgia) are set to announce their college decisions Sunday and Monday, respectively.
