Higley football player Ty Robinson meets with 11 coaches from Nebraska on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2018 during a recruiting visit.

How badly do the Nebraska Cornhuskers want Higley High School (Gilbert, Arizona) defensive lineman Ty Robinson?

They sent 11 coaches to his home Thursday on the last night coaches were allowed to make home visits.

"You have 11 full-time coaches who are allowed to come out (to recruit)," Higley coach Eddy Zubey said. "They all came by the school and hung out with Ty all night."

Zubey said that Nebraska head coach Scott Frost pulled out all the recruiting stops on the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Robinson after hearing that Alabama coach Nick Saban visited Robinson last week.

"Coach Frost said he never did this before," Zubey said. "They've done nine, but not 11. They stopped recruiting everybody else in the nation for one day.

"They said he was their No. 1 priority. This was set up before. Scott Frost was going to come out. But when they found out that Nick Saban was going to be coming back, I think it became all 11."

Zubey said that USC came in on Monday to sell Robinson with five of its coaches. But all 11 from one school was a first that Zubey said he had ever seen.

He said his office got too crowded with all of the coaches that they had to find a bigger area.

Robinson is pretty even-keeled, but even this had to unbelievable.

"Ty knew they were coming, but it was still kind of overwhelming when they're all in there," Zubey said. "They were super nice, had good conversations.

"Last night was the last opportunity to do home visits, before the dead period. When this first started, they said they wanted to walk up last night and be the last ones in his house."

Robinson keeps a poker face about his recruiting. He has narrowed it to five schools: Nebraska, Oregon, USC, Alabama, Stanford.

He won't announce his decision until 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, during the early signing period for high school seniors.

"He's' got his five and he will sit down and figure it all out," Zubey said. "It will be interesting."
