  1. Negative Recruiting?

    Probably unrelated to this, but Shaun King has some unfortunate, UNL related tweets going on right now and I saw an Oregon fan on twitter mentioned one of our recruits in one of them and then deleted it after a little while. I don’t know that it’s appropriate to post the tweets here.
  2. Wiltfong had always maintained that Ohio State didn’t have enough room for JJB, which is a major reason he had him coming here. If a spot opened up, it stands to reason that Wiltfong would flip his pick. I get what you are saying, but recruiting is so fluid. And it’s not just recruits (and their families) who change their minds, coaching staffs do as well.
  3. JUCO Recruiting

    I expect them all to play and likely start. Just that it might take until year 2 for them to be fully comfortable at this level of play. JUCOs add the benefit of being more physically ready to play than most freshmen, but they still have to adjust to the speed of Power-5 football just like freshmen do.
  4. JUCO Recruiting

    Some of these guys will still need a year to adjust to the game. I expect big production in 2019, when they’ve been in the system for a full year and are playing at full speed. Not that we can’t expect contributions this year or anything, just that it’s not panic worthy if it takes some time. It’s why JUCO transfers only make sense if you can bring them in in January in my opinion. Any later and it’s almost like wasting a year and a scholarship.
  5. S Jalen Catalon

    I recognize his last name, he has a brother or maybe two who played for TCU? Not the biggest safety ever but he has impressive film and a great offer list.
  6. QB Matthew Tago [Oregon State - Signed LOI]

    Following Tago’s recruitment, I think it’s pretty clear he has his heart set on offense. And I think he’s an intriguing prospect there. But I think he has next level instincts and frame for defense. After a RS year, and maybe a second year in the S&C, I think he’d be all-conference material at either OLB or ILB. Best of luck to him, but we have to be really picky with our spots at this point and it’d be a mistake to bring him in on offense and then have him transfer away if it didn’t work out and he didn’t want to switch to defense. I got you with some up-votes on 247 Matty, no idea why you got down voted.
  7. CB Trent McDuffie

    That’s not a 3-star offer list. Even the smaller offers like Colorado and Utah are great offers from a DB standpoint. Have to imagine he’s due for a big time ratings bump haha.
  8. RB Jordan Wilmore

    Love his film. Would take his commitment in a heartbeat.

  10. RB Darrin Smith

    Received a Florida offer today. Seems like a guy who can be a matchup nightmare and help our tempo since he can line up in the backfield or be motioned out into the slot.
  11. OT Reece Atteberry

    Works out at the same training center as Wildeman.
  12. DE Casey Rogers [Nebraska- Signed LOI]

    Fair posts all around. I like the Cal, Pitt, and Vandy offers. I think Rogers is properly rated, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. He needs to put on a lot of weight to play in a 3-4, but he has the length to really be disruptive and I trust that the coaches believe he has the frame to put on the weight. If he was 20lbs heavier, he’d probably be a 4-star and more ready to contribute right away. That’s not to say that he won’t be ready after a good RS year.
  13. Athlon: Early B10 Predictions

    Their DC was a stud, no question. I don’t think their OC has done anything really though and I’m surprised he got another Power-5 job as a coordinator. I didn’t realize they lost him but that might be an upgrade for all I know, they finished pretty low in offensive ranks last year. I don’t know enough about them to say definitively one way or the other. I do think they have a pretty good head coach - I knew about him back when he was coaching in California and I have been hoping someone else would hire him away so I could cheer for him again. That all said, I’m not trying to compliment Colorado as much as I’m saying it would be a good, early season win for our new staff. Looking forward to kicking their teeth in!
  14. OL Jarrett Bell [ASU -Signed LOI]

    Would probably be my favorite recruit after Honas and Martinez. Big time offer list and the G5 programs on it all know what they are doing with OLine. Very glad to hear that we are in the driver’s seat.
  15. CB Cam Taylor [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    Listed at 6’1” on Rivals and he has a really good offer list no matter what teams are still pursuing him. Love that we are recruiting him as an athlete. Seems like the type of guy who would have beat Auburn as a player for UCF this year.
