Signing-day coverage
Bill Callahan hopes to cap a frantic 3½ weeks with a big finish in the hunt for players who will begin to give the Huskers a different look.
Callahan and his staff overcome a late start and sign an 18-member recruiting class that draws the experts' praise, if not a consensus top 20 ranking: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

NOTE: Nebraska had 13 commitments and a class ranked 14th nationally by Rivals.com at the time of Frank Solich's firing.
