Scott Frost guessed that he and his staff hit on about five of seven players if they got the prospective recruit to campus.

Some of that is flipping the perception of Lincoln.

And to a T, recruits often came away with the similar reaction: "This is not what I expected."

"I think the perception out there is this is a football stadium in the middle of a cornfield and it’s always cold," Frost said. "I can’t tell you how many kids when I met with them on Sunday after their official visits told me this is nothing like they thought it was going to be like. So it’s going to be important for us to get kids to campus, but Lincoln, Nebraska, is no colder than a lot of schools in the Big Ten, in fact it’s warmer than a lot of schools in the Big Ten and kids are going there.

"There’s no reason why we can’t get them.”
