  1. Clemson is a much better fit for him than Bama. The 4-2-5 quarters allows him to close in the open field rather than read and react like he’d have to under Saban.
  2. I like his feet, like his frame, and like his aggression. If he trusted his size and quickness a little better then he could be a little less grabby and sit down on his blocks better.
  3. You just named two of the three things that fans have direct control over. Donations being the third.
  4. We finally have some junior film from the New England spring league and, as we already knew, Martin's a thumper with good eyes, good hands, and a willingness to take on blockers. I can see why people might worry about his agility and top end speed. Worst case, he's a multi-year starting LS. Best case, he's a hash-to-hash run stuffer and interior blitz threat.
  5. I don't think we should be too surprised that Sanford is doing so well in these since he's a track guy. You don't win four gold medals in a single year for not being a great athlete, even if it's Class C.
  6. Seeing how he averaged 12 yards per carry, I was expecting Gaston to be a guy that just runs to open field against overmatched opponents and there's plenty of that in his highlights. I certainly wasn't expecting a decisive between the tackles runner that makes guys miss and punishes defenders at the end of runs. It's always so much fun to watch high school running backs that understand the blocking scheme in front of them.
  7. I agree that Kanak has a higher ceiling on defense. His offensive film is mostly him being bigger, stronger, and faster than everybody where he just flows so much better on defense. He's the same sort of athlete as Nate Gerry or Quincy Enunwa, I just hope he's wearing Husker red at the next level.
  8. He does have a strange throwing motion. The only high level guy I can think of that has that sort of off arm tucked like that is Dan Marino however Marino kept his off hand high and really committed his body into his passes to get velocity. But it's like they say, every high school QB is a project (except for Trevor Lawrence and Tommie Frazier).
  9. He looks like a real match up nightmare. Watching his film gives me flashbacks of Todd Blythe at Iowa State.
  10. I do agree that there is a bit more opportunity in Omaha to look elsewhere but I don't see it as anything too much different than the rest of the state. Most guys want to play at Nebraska with some Notre Dame fans thrown in the mix but even then I see it as parallel fandoms. Not to rehash old stuff, but I think that Pelini did a poor job managing the state of Nebraska generally and overlooked Omaha specifically. He'd rather take a fringe guy from Youngstown Cardinal Mooney than Omaha Central. Look at his in-state recruits; Omaha: Bronson Marsh, CJ Zimmerer,
  11. They do at some point. Team improvement across the board in strength & conditioning reflects a competitive effort and that players are holding one another accountable. Damian Jackson's leadership over the winter has been really valuable to this team. He's an extra coach wearing shoulder pads.
  12. Yes, they are the same measurements and captured with the same electronic tools to the best of my knowledge. They didn't include the 40 yard dash in those 2016 measures. I imagine that Khalil Davis would have scored really, really well in that metric. These are the old records from 1980-2003; 10 Yard (Points) 40 Yard (Points) Pro Agility (Points) Vertical (Points) Performance Index Total Hang Clean (Points) Squat (Points) Strength Index Total
  13. Under Frost, Omaha contributes about the same number of players as the rest of the state. Omaha Metro Area: Thomas Fidone, Teddy Prochaska, Koby Bretz, AJ Rollins, Zavier Betts, Nick Heindrich, Chris Hickman Rest of Nebraska: Cam Jurgens, Garrett Nelson, Garrett Snodgrass, Ethan Piper, Issac Gifford, James Carnie, Henrich Haarberg We've made mistakes of slow playing guys (Harrison Phillips), recruiting them at positions they don't want to play (Noah Fant), and just missing them completely (Easton Stick). I don't see those mistakes with Dickerson, Woods, Jack
  14. Boyd Epley used the vert, agility, and ten to create his index score. There were a few numbers that they worked off of to evaluate team athleticism. 900: Walk-On that could contribute 1500: High-level contributors 1800: Pro-level athleticism Our scores were pretty good this year. Damian Jackson (2288) Cam Jurgens (2248) Deontai Williams (2043) Chris Kolarevic (2009) Cam Taylor-Britt (1797) To put this all in a bit of perspective, in 2016 our top five scorers were Khalil Davis (1790) Zack Darlington (17
  15. With that CB for us, here are his highlights from his sophomore year. His team went 1-7 last year and I couldn't find any season stats on him.
