      One of the things that was lost in the board upgrade is the way we used to give users the "Donor" tag that showed up below their user info doesn't work the same way anymore.  I have a new tag set up that will go to anyone who donates going forward.   I should get a notification when you donate but it is only tied to your email, not your username.  So if I don't get your tag on right away either PM me or send an email to Admin@HuskerBoard.com.

Nice find Chuck, I'll call my friend whose son plays with him at Mounds View. Should know sometime tonight.

 

Found this from his Select Club site:

http://www.blizzardelitebaseball.com/

 

Seems he's a very athletic LHP with a fast ball that has been clocked at 90 mph. He is currently leading the team in rbi's and according to my friend's son, is well liked and respected. Did say he has kind of an ego though but what HS D1 player doesn't? Now to find 3 more like him. :)

Thanks nexus. It's much easier to follow and keep up with a thread rather than a separate post for each commit/prospect

Went to Nebraska city tonight to watch the district game between neb city and Hickman/Norris because my team gets to play the winner. Watched Byron and Jackson as the battery for Hickman and I was very impressed. Byron was hitting low 90's late in the game and Jackson was very quick behind the plate with a cannon attached to his right shoulder. Needless to say I get the privilege to take the mound against these kids tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it. I see why they were one of the top teams in high school baseball this year, the lineup was pretty stacked from top to bottom. Just hope I can have a half way decent showing tomorrow.

Saw today that new Husker baseball RHP recruit Josh Roeder was selected to the 1st team All-Great Lakes Summit Collegiate League. Very Nice!!! Good stats. Looks like he's picking up right where he left off at Louisburg CC in North Carolina, this time against D1 players (including other Big 10 guys). Looks like someone who can come in and help out right away. Can't wait for next season.

Sweet. We need a guy that fits the closer role and it sounds like Josh will do that.

Here's a link to Josh's GLSCL player profile. Check out the ERA and SO to BB ratio! Also only 1 hit in 16 innings pitched.

 

http://glscl.bbstats.pointstreak.com/player.html?playerid=318685

 

 

Also, just checked out the NJCAA website (JUCO NCAA site) and found his stats at Louisburg College in NC. Had 50 SO to 8 BB. This guy throws a ton of strikes, which is awesome because we don't need to be letting guys get free passes. I think our defense will be much better in '13, as pretty much everyone is back - except Kale Kaiser & Stock, both sound D players. Hopefully Pritch will be back defensively and available in the outfield to fill the gap left by Kale. Just put it over the plate, get some K's and let the D do the rest. Offense will be even better with another year under Coach Erstadt and crew.

Always nice to get a guy with ties. Colorado sure has been good to Husker baseball.

Yes, CU's decision to drop baseball years ago has sent multiple talents to God's country...........

No clueMatt Lothrop (@MattLothrop8) tweeted at 3:31 PM on Tue, Nov 13, 2012:

BaseballAmerica ranks Nebraska baseball recruit Ryan Boldt as 9th best prep prospect for 2013 Draft. Not sure he'll ever see Lincoln.

(

Had no idea Boldt was rated this high. Would be nice to stop losing recruits to the draft.

Only, Edrington and Boldt all signed LOI's today.

 

Happy to see these two signees. Edrington might be able to help us this year! Ryan Boldt will have one more decision to make. We probably won't find out his status until next August. Hopefully, Mr Kelly will be a positive influence. :)

 

Jake Wimer is an official. Can't find much info on him... but glad he's in the fold. I think Erstad&staff have a good eye for talent.

Thanks for the new info on Wimer. I'll add him to the 1st post.

 

BTW, Only is a player too. I noticed you said "two signees" so you probably read it wrong. My bad for wording it that way. :P

 

Grant Gamble just submitted his LOI as well.

:LOLtartar OOOPS! My bad! That's actually pretty funny how I read that wrong. Good thing we didn't get a firstbasemen by the name of Who.

 

I forgot about Bryce. Only should be a great 3rd baseman. Thanks for clearing that up and posting the other signees. chuckleshuffle

Boldt won't put the red on... he'll be taken in the draft early and probably getting a max bonus...

There are two other kids being recruited from Minnesota right now that are also MLB prospects...

So, I'd completely agree with the statement that Erstad and Company have an eye for talent and what is kind of scary. When Erstad offers it also sends signals to MLB scouts. There's a reason for this and I'm hoping it leads to more Boldt type players coming to dear old NU to develop. Time will tell :)

Boy Nexus your on the ball. Thanks for the info. I knew about King but not Engelken

 

It'd be a heck of a lot easier to follow recruiting if perfectgame.org were situated like Rivals, 24/7, etc. (FREE searches) so that I could navigate by school and see who has offers? LJS, OWH, Rivals and 24/7 have done a good job in getting commitment info. out though.

According to 24/7 and Rivals, NU secured a new 2014 commit. He doesn't have a perfectgame.com profile yet though. I found this little tidbit about him:

 

Unknown to us before the workout, but leaving a lasting impression, was RHP Reece Eddins (Blue Springs South HS, Class of 2014). The lanky 6-foot-5, 180-pound righty has a deceptive delivery with good rhythm and a free, easy delivery topping at 85 mph with some late arm side movement.

That quote is way off, says 88 mph on Rivals. :sarcasm Has a 12-6 curveball and change-up as well.

Good stuff Hacker.

 

Oh and just to clarify, I didn't find the other stuff, I am just sharing what I read on another site so there can be discussion here in which I can participate. The discussion here is good and the debate respectful. Also the mods don't modify and delete individual posts here. (Those are the 2 reasons I don't post at the other sites anymore) Just want to relay my intent as I know posting info read from other sites can aggravate some people.

Seen mostly as a Catcher Prospect but does have some interesting pitching skills. Lacks velocity (78-79) but throws a 11-5 curve and a change up that reaches 63.

A right handed pitcher that throws an 11-5 curve ball must be something to see!

I thought the same thing when I read it... figured it was a typo but it's what the article states and I've personally not seen the kid throw so..... just quoting the writer.

 

edit:

Nearly posted the exact quote but smartly (yea me!!) checked first to see if it's premium.

and... unfortunately it is, I can't post a quote as it's a premium site :(

I have a hard time believing that he'll end up in school if he gets drafted high enough and gets enough money. You won't hear anything else out of friends/families mouths until he's signed a contract for what bargaining power they can use, but money is hard to turn down.
