hello, joseph townsend decision b/w NU & wa st is difficult for him, because he gave his pledge to wa st out of hs, yet his brother larry townsend played for NU during the '90 (& both NU & wa st have offered):

townsend came to the NU/ks game as an unofficial, & was very impressed w/ the game & atmosphere - I predict that he officially visits wa st & NU before making a decision b/w the 2

Do you think he might possibly be able to make an imediate impact?

 

I think that he will be in the rotation next year and could possibly start. It will depend on how he picks up the defense and if he can beat out Steinkuhler and others (I think Suh has the Nose Guard spot).

HUGE pick up! DAMN this D is going to be down right scarry! Coz will NOT have any excuses next year!

 

 

I don't think that these recruits will just jump in and start. There's a system to learn and get comfortable playing in. I hope for a better defense also but it won't have much to do with the new kids at first. Bowman was a 4 or 5 star and it took him almost the whole year to live up to the hype, but I'm with you Coz has the players coming back that should be ready to have an impact next year.

 

 

GBR!!!

maybe, maybe not......looking around the college ranks these days and you will see lots of freshman starting, even at the skill positions

They might not come in and be every down contributors but if they can come in and play nickel back, pass rushing lineman, or coverage linebackers that can excel in certain packages would greatly help the defense.

Why Not...It seemed to work for OU. They were one of the teams that started the most Fresh and Soph of any top 20 ranked team this year!

Anyone know what the deal is with this guy. I see he hasn't signed a letter of intent yet rivals states him as being a Dec. Grad. Are grades an issue, or does he just need more time to sign. About 2 weeks left until classes start.

There was discussion on this guy in another thread, and I asked the same question. Apparently, he is a spring grad and Rivals is incorrect. This info is third-hand, so take it for what it's worth.

I don't have the link to the story, but Townsend was quoted saying he will be at NU in the fall.

i dont know if Townsend was a Dec grad or not. It would be nice to have him on campus in january but as long as he gets qualified and in fall camp that is all that we can ask for.

now a :star:star:star:star on Rivals.

 

 

Edit - Sorry - looks like he always was a four-star. We now have 12 four star players per Rivals, but I can't figure out how we went from 9 yesterday to 12 today.

Yep, that's right.

 

 

 

He was a four star per Scout, but only a three per Rivals.

 

Yep, can't believe it took this long for him to get upgraded.

I was on another site and he said that he has four years to play three and that he was going to play the base defensive end position. I thought that he was a junior without a redshirt. I was just wondering if anyone could confirm this or was it just an error by the other site.

He's a 4 for 3 guy. I believe they said that on Big Red Wrap Up.

WOW. I didnt know that, I thought he was a 2 for 2 guy. Well that makes me feel a lot better about the future on the d-line than before. I know Crick is very capable but Smith is an unknown and it will take Crick at least a year to adjust to college speed. Townsend is built in the same mold as Carriker, I am not by any means saying he is, rather he has the potential to be very good. That gives us a very solid d-line for at least the next two years with potter, turner, townsend, suh, dixon, barfield, jensen, davis, yancy, and crick.

He was trying to graduate early IIRC. Word is he'll redshirt this fall to concentrate on grades, enroll at UNL in the spring, and have 3 years to play 3.
