Saw an interview he did with scout. And to quickly paraphrase, went to a bball game and was gonna be a sun devil. On the way home a car with Nebraska plates was in front of him, and it was then he knew what he had to do

I just thought everyone should know I'm flapping my arms up and down like a slightly slow but excited Angry Bird because we landed this kid.

 

Good thing there aren't any of those damn Green Pigs around...

Boehm will be tough to get. Lots of offers and strong connection to OU.

 

I'd love for it to happen.

 

I thought Peat would be a long shot...but family ties can never hurt.

Welcome to Husker Nation, Todd. Couldn't be more thrilled to see you donning Scarlet & Cream.

 

Hey EZ, remember when we first discovered this kid's video before NU offered him? Talking about how nice it'd be to have both Peat & Williams anchoring the line together? We called them Suh & McCoy clones. Funny how things worked out, huh?

 

BTW, I'll gladly eat crow since I predicted Peat to ASU. I'll cherish eating my fill.

Thanks to Coach brown for keeping him interested, and HC Pelini and for closing the deal.

Meltdown, big time. Pages 6 and 7 are just hilarious.

Is there truth to the stuff about Peat seeing a Nebraska license plate on the car in front of him and thinking it was a sign from God, changing his mind then and there to be 100% Husker? Edit, found the post from the ASU thread:

 

Huskerillustrated's write up on Peat and why he chose Nebraska.

 

"I went to talk to my girlfriend about the whole thing and asked her if she was alright with me leaving. Having that conversation with my girlfriend, she told me she was all right with me leaving but I felt that she wasn't.

 

"I left Mountain Pointe [High School] thinking I'm going to go to ASU. I'm driving down the street and I pull up to the stoplight. I'm totally spacing out, not paying attention to anything. Something catches my eye, and it's the license plate of the car in front of me. It's a Nebraska license plate. I've never seen a Nebraska license plate in Arizona in my life. I'm just like, 'This is a sign, and I've got to go to Nebraska.' After a lot of praying about it, and asking God to send me a sign, that's what happened. I decided that's 100 percent where I need to be."

As it should be. How many of the top recruits in Arizona went elsewhere? Pretty much ALL of them. It reminds me of sCUm last year failing to sign any of the top 15 recruits out of Colorado last year.

It sounds like Bo made up some SERIOUS ground in the last week or so.

 

Big kudos to our head coach for atoning for the recruiting drop-off late in the year, and making up for it in a big way, literally, with Todd Peat.

 

Class is still smaller than ideal, but Peat is a great surprise. If only he were #22 instead of #19. But with nabbing Peat and holding on to CJ and Ameer, this class finishes solid with a cherry on top, when at one point it looked like potential disaster.

Apparently we really, truly officially received Peat's letter at 1:30 today. So it really, really is official. :bigredn:

I can't believe he said he's never seen a Nebraska license plate in Arizona before!? I went down there a few years back for a 3 month rotation and I saw tons of Nebraska plates including mine. Hell, I know over 10 couples just from my small area that go to Arizona for the winter. That just blows my mind.

 

The only thing I can think of is he didn't notice the old plates because had colors similar to arizona, but he probably saw one of the new hideous plates with yet another bird on them and that probably did it. So, thank you Nebraska for making the new ugly ass looking plates!!!

1:57 p.m. -- License plate steers DT Peat to Nebraska: Todd Peat Jr., a defensive tackle from Corona Del Sol High School in Tempe, Ariz., chose Nebraska over Arizona State this morning. His official announcement will come later today at his elementary school.

"I was down to ASU and Nebraska," Peat told 247Sports. "I was pretty much going to choose ASU, but was driving home last night and saw a Nebraska license plate, something I'd never seen before and took it as a sign that I should become a Cornhusker." LINK

 

This license plate thing is WILD. When Peat becomes the next great Blackshirt DT we're gonna look back and count our lucky stars that some Nebraska snowbird was driving around down in Tempe on NSD.

My favorite part of his interview is when he said that NU and their staff would be able to transform him into a great player and person. Things that a lot of us on the board cited as reasons he should choose NU over the closeness to home that was ASU. I love it.

It's easy being a fan and observer though. The stress and pressure of recruiting on these kids, particularly the ones who choose to drag it out until NSD is a whole other animal. Thankfully Peat was classy about it the whole way through by all accounts. I'm not really one to throw kids under the bus for choosing against Nebraska though. So long as they remain professional throughout the process then it's all good.

 

BTW, loved that he threw the bones at the very end of the broadcast.

This kid's gonna be a beast. Possibly the second coming of Ndamukong Suh. He's already got a perfect last name to carry on the tradition. Just imagine 85,000+ cheering "PPPPPPPEEEEEEAAAAAAATTTTTTT" after every play he makes!

Also forgot to mention that I thought he handled the Suh question quite well. He basically said he's going to be Todd Peat, not Suh, and hopes to be better than Suh when it's all said and done. It's a lofty goal, but gosh darn it I hope he reaches it. I certainly won't be mad at him for trying. ;)

This kid is very well spoken and his mannerism's sure remind of another great DT that played here at Nebraska. wink.gif Not to mention he has a killer 3 technique! headbank.gif

 

I started listening his commitment video with the video minimized and I swear I thought it was Suh at first. Their voices are eerily similar
