Nebraska High School Players - Class of 2018

Would bet we do on Friday when I believe he's camping.

 

What's his story, was he born/grow up here?

 

I was wondering the same thing -- last I knew of York, Ne, their African-American population was pretty much 0. Here's a good article from Hail Varisty about his history:

Think Williams gets an offer eventually? He looks the part

That's a pretty big offer pretty early. You'd think that he'd have other FBS schools follow meaning probably a low 3 star at least? You'd like to think that he'd get one, but with our scholarship number being so low I'm not sure. He also would have to compete with the other big name guys were are going after at that position too. Seems like he might be a Brett Kittrell type that we let go. Not that he'd necessarily be locked N if we offered him anyway.

 

Seems like there are just too many names ahead of him when we only have spots for a few.

Man, this is going to be a tough one for the staff. You already have 1 in-state DT on the board and you have some other big names interested nationally. Plus the scheme change calls for less big boys up front.

 

Tough to see Maspry and Williams ending up huskers unless we wiff on Trout, Avery, etc...or one/both can play DE.

According to OWH Minny is also pushing hard. Iowa State regularly in contact also. UCLA sniffing around as they always do in this state. Huskers are in contact, just not as much as KState and Minny.

 

Grew up in Nebraska but moved to Illinois before moving back his Freshman year.

 

Did well at FNL last year. Parella started talking to him then.

Yeah, we may have worked ourselves into a tough spot here. Change of scheme put a crunch on the numbers and we may have jumped the gun a bit on Masry.

 

Reports are Williams is the better player now and probably a safer bet while Masry may have a bit more upside but is more of a risk.

Masry fits the scheme better IMO.

That's entirely possible. Definitely seems to be closer to the DT we need. Doesn't help the risk involved, though.

 

The other possibility is Willaims might be able to play DE. Which would make it a little easier to take both but still tough with short numbers.

Maybe I am off my rocker...but to me, quality/high caliber linemen (both O and D) should have a higher priority in recruitment than "skill" positions.

 

Not saying this kid is high quality/caliber, just saying all things being equal, take the lineman over the WR.

Still think he's a kid we regret leaving the state if he does. This isn't our typical "recruit more Nebraska kids" or "look, he at least has FCS offers" - not very often P5 guys come through Lincoln at any position, and we all know we need help in the trenches. I like him more than Masry.

I can't argue with any of that. The drive to put in that level of work alone is worth a scholarship to see what comes of it in 4-5 years at the University.

Trust in Parrella. We haven't contacted him for a while and Wilhite was the one that asked him to attend the spring game. Leads me to believe we are in pretty good shape with some much better prospects.

And that doesn't answer my point that, in my opinion, he's better than Masry. If we shouldn't take Williams because 1) we're in on better prospects or 2) we officially have too many Williams (lololol), then we shouldn't take Masry either IMO.

 

Could you imagine if we did though... Keith Williams, Donte Williams, Aaron Williams, Kieron Williams, Bryson Williams, Keyan Williams...

Again...no offense but I trust Parrella over a bunch of guys on an internet message board to evaluate recruits.

He must be pretty damn good then, because Masry's upside is significant.

I just noticed Williams has an offer from the Naval Academy. I am sure all kids think they have a shot at the NFL, but that might be his best offer in the long run.
