Nebraska High School Players - Class of 2019

Recommended Posts

Burke LB

 

 

One of the best in-state talents in 2019. Dad played baseball at Iowa. If we want to be serious about this, we need to get moving.

Just to be clear:

 

Everyone would be fine with offering this kid this early and potentially securing a commitment with the possibility that we might have to turn down a higher rated player a year from now?

In a class that will be as big as next year's - yes.

Regardless of class size there is risk with offering an in-state prospect this early (unless they are Cam Jurgens). I'm not saying I disagree that we should offer him (he looks like a good OLB prospect)...but there are ramifications if we are full next year's class at his spot and a high caliber guy wants in.

 

This may force us to show our hand early and if so, so be it. Just can't expect to yank the offer or make it non-committable like you can other prospects.

What was Jurgen's rating when we offered him?

What was Jurgen's rating when we offered him?

Fairly certain he wasn't rated.

 

So, in other words, the same situation this kid is in.

 

It's pretty difficult for us fans to sit here and judge that we wouldn't give this kid an early offer...."Well, unless he is Cam Jurgens".

 

I'll let the coaches decide this.

Jurgens was ranked a top 100 national recruit before his Soph year of HS.

 

 

We'll all let the coaches decide, then half of us will complain.

What about this QB that's visiting Oklahoma this past weekend?

 

Don't know anything about him other than he's from Lincoln High.

Probably one of the better QB prospects to come out of Lincoln in some time. Yes, I realize that's not saying much. Probably not one who OU would offer ever but he's got a pretty good arm and can move around in the pocket well it looks like. Also, Lincoln High has had an astounding turn around and he's probably a big reason why.

LHS was a great feel good story this year.  I was hoping they would go deeper in the playoffs.  They have a couple dudes on that team that can runnnnnn.

Smart offer by Riley on his way out of Lincoln.  Who knows where Snodgrass will play in college, but it's worth offering a pure athlete who is a great leader.
