There are two big stories on National Signing Day for the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska fans knew that their team would be getting a shot in the arm with a recruiting class loaded with talent.
What they didn’t expect was a letter of intent from defensive tackle Todd Peat, Jr. to show up on a Lincoln fax machine.
Peat is regarded as one of the finest prospects at his position by all major recruiting services.
Things got a little more interesting across Husker Nation as the afternoon wore on.
Rumors started to swirl that Indiana secondary coach Corey Raymond would be on Nebraska’s coaching staff for the 2011-2012 season. Those rumors were later confirmed.
Two questions arise as a result of Raymond’s hire.
What will his coaching duties entail and if he’s going to take over guiding the secondary, what does this mean for current defensive backs coach Marvin Sanders?
Head coach Bo Pelini would not comment on whether or not Sanders still remains a member of the staff during a teleconference held Tuesday regarding Nebraska’s 2010-2011 recruiting class.
"I'm not talking about anything but recruiting today,” Pelini said. "We really haven't had staff changes to this point."
UPDATE 2/2/11 8:42 P.M. CST:
From the Lincoln Journal Star's Blog:
"Ted Gilmore, Shawn Watson and Marvin Sanders.
I think it's becoming clear what to make of that.
By the way, Bo Pelini isn't there, either.
Rest of Huskers' full-time staff is in attendance."
