Marquise Doherty open to Nebraska now?

One of the top players in the radius that Nebraska has failed to make an impression on is two-way standout Marquise Doherty. Will staff changes make a difference?

Marquise Doherty from Kansas City (Mo.) Winnetonka is one of the top players in the K.C. metro area. When the talented, two-way athlete announced his top five it crushed some Nebraska fans when they were omitted.

It's a new day in Lincoln though. Nebraska has a new head coach in Mike Briley and a new linebackers coach in Trent Bray. Will that make a difference with Doherty?

"At this point," Doherty said, "it's kind of late."

For some recruits it might make sense to pick up interest in Nebraska after they were recruited by the old staff at Oregon State. Oregon State has never recruited Doherty.

"I haven't heard from the new staff and Oregon State wasn't recruiting me before their head coach went to Nebraska."
