Scott Frost has many alluring qualities as a recruiter. He has an undefeated season on his resume, he’s young, he’s energetic and he just landed a job at his big-name alma mater.
But it might have been a completely different aspect that tipped the scales of the recruitment of 4-star defensive end Caleb Tannor in Nebraska’s favor. That might’ve been Frost’s eagerness to help Tannor’s mother at work.
According to an article from Mike Schaefer of 247Sports, Felicia Tannor was impressed with how Frost helped her out as she was cleaning up at work at an elementary school. Frost was stopping by to speak with her as he made a visit to Tannor’s hometown of Lithonia, Ga.
“He helped with all that stuff. He just happened to be there at the time they were cleaning up,” Tannor’s high school coach, Justin Larmond, told 247Sports. “He just pitched in and did everything. He picked chairs up, helped take out the trash. All that stuff.”
Tannor, a one-time Georgia commit, ended up pledging to Nebraska on National Signing Day. Tannor is the No. 19 weak-side defensive end in the class and is one of six 4-star commits in Nebraska’s class.
If Frost can keep landing commits like Tannor, he’ll have Nebraska back in Big Ten West contention before long.
