Pickering gets third star for rivals rating. Which seems to me to be a little low given what he was rated by the Kohl's kicking camp.

By my limited research, a 5.5 3* is actually the highest rank Rivals awards to kickers. So they're essentially "maxing him out" already.

He totally should have used special effects in his highlight video.  Like the ball exploding when he kicked it or flames coming out of the back of the ball.

Those are actually the Composite numbers.

 

247 hasn't rated him.

Husker commit ranked No. 1 at position
Nebraska's kicker commit gets No. 1 ranking.

Nebraska is off to a tremendous start with it 2018 class, holding commits from several elite defensive backs and wide receivers.  Add another spot to that list: kicker.
 
Nebraska kicker commit Barret Pickering is now the No. 1 kicker in the country according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.

Here's the article about that.  We've had a lot of great kickers over the years.  Barret may be the most highly ranked one coming out of high school.   :thumbs

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

I think Jordan Congdon was rated as the #1 kicker in the country when we got him and Mauro Bondi was pretty high too but I don't think as high.  I'm actually embarrassed by my kicker recruit knowledge so I'm going to stop now.

Yeah, that's right.  I forgot about Jordon Congdon.  Funny that most of our best kickers haven't been rated nearly as high as Congdon or Bondi.

Kunalic was pretty highly rated wasn't he? I know C******n recruited him after going for it on 4th down vs. Auburn, because he didn't have faith in Congdon's leg.

Recruiting has to be a lot better now that we have the number one overall player at a position! This guy will start as a freshman and may have some growing pains but inside 50 this guy should be really good.
