I think that is kind of a ridiculous assumption to make, especially with regards to 16 and 17 year-olds who are capable of tremendous physical development between now and their final year of eligibility in college...

 

We have no idea what kind of QB Cody Green will be at the college level. All we know is that he is a tremendous high school player and a great athlete. The same goes for Jacoby Walker.

 

Also, it's apparent we want Jacoby to be a Husker, as we were the first to offer.

With QB being such an important position schools usually take at least 1-2 QB's each year regardless of who they already have. You never know what will happen and it is nice to have capable QBs on the team. Another thing is that I am glad to see Nebraska going after great athletes at the QB position!

:yeah Always want to take at least 1 QB in each class. The coaches are going to try and get the best possible player to fill that slot regardless of who they have in house already. To put all of your apples on a young man who may or may not play regardless of how highly ranked he was is a mistake IMO.

kansas? wth?

Meh.

Jacoby Walker names a leader

Quarterback Jacoby Walker told ESPN affiliate Web site TheShiver.com, "I would say Kansas is my early leader."

 

Walker also stated the other programs recruiting him, "Right now I have offers from Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Kansas. I think I will get offers from Missouri and Northwestern soon as well."

 

Last fall, Walked completed 66-percent of his attempts for 2,087 yards, 20 touchdowns and eight touchdowns.

Not over yet, but if he goes to Kansas, then we'll be an ideal destination for Blake Bell.

id take walker....hes faster (i like dual threat QBs)

I would take Walker over Bell as well

 

Have you guys seen him play? Just curious :dunno

 

Going by the offers, and the fact that rivals has Bell as the number 1 qb/dual threat qb, i would think Bell would be the clear prefernece at this stage. Once again, not knocking your opininons. I know the rankings can be rather skewed to say the least ;)

This was Blake's first season as a quarterback. The previous year, he was a starting wide receiver for his team.

I'd say that makes him a dual threat!

Latest From Husker Journal:

 

APRIL 5, 2009. PREP STAR

JACOBY WALKER, QB, 6-2, 190, 4.7, SPRING (WESTFIELD), TEXAS

 

Jacoby has offers from Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma State

 

Kansas Leads For Walker

 

“Right now with the offers I have I’m leaning towards Kansas.” Walker said, “I like Kansas because they are in the Big 12 and it’s a competitive conference. They do a lot of things on offense and is a team on the rise in college football.”

 

“I’ve haven’t been to Kansas yet, but I plan on going to their spring game next week. I’m excited about it because being in Texas I’ve never been far as the heartland.” Walker said

 

“I don’t search Kansas on the Internet. I watch Sports Center 24/7 so…….I’m watching a soccer game now.” Walker added

 

“Nebraska was the first team to offer me,” Walker said, “They verbally offered me after my sophomore year. By my junior year Nebraska and Oklahoma State offered me in writing.”

 

Huskers Put Up Big Numbers

 

“I know a lot about Nebraska, I watch them on TV. They put up a lot of numbers. The last two quarterbacks put up a lot of points on the board. Nebraska is always four wide on offenses like some schools. At my school were kind of balance. I kind of like pro style because I can read defenses.” Walker said

 

“I still hear from Nebraska,” Walker said, “Coach Watson talks to me about the spring game. I’m not sure if I will make it for the game.” Walker added

 

“I don’t hear from Oklahoma State as much because I think they have commits from two other quarterbacks. I’m still being recruited by them but having two quarterback commits I don’t know where I would play.” Walker said

 

Video Game Numbers

 

“I like how Oklahoma State uses their quarterbacks. They like to run the ball a lot and they use different schemes on offense for the quarterbacks. Oklahoma State system puts up video game numbers. Ridiculous numbers. They are one of the teams that go under center and spread it out, real versatile.” Walker said

 

“I plan on making my decision early in the summer so I can focus on my senior year. I want to wait after spring ball to make sure everything is on the table. I’m not looking at depth charts or anything, that’s not my main reason. I still have to compete for a spot.” Walker added

attended Kansas' Spring Game

next to the 18 fans that showed up

Yeah, we should get as many recruits that went to the Kansas spring game to Lincoln this weekend, and show them what a real football school is like. KU will sell out the midnight madness basketball scrimage every year, yet no one goes to the spring game. KU will always be a basketball school first.

i think he clearly sees all the quarterbacks we have. We have Green who will have 4 years of eligibility after his redshirt, Spano a redshirt-freshman, Washingtion who might redshirt, and Zac Lee who is only a junior this year. Would he rather come here or go to Kansas where he as a MUCH better chance of starting after Reesing leaves. If it was me, I would be in love with Kansas because of their qb situation.

would be surprised if he didn't end up at Kansas

 

 

 

So is KU willing to take more than one QB then? What about Gabbert?

More than likely they are doing the same thing we are, have a list to top targets and work them all until one becomes a solid verbal.

"As expected, Spring (Texas) Westfield quarterback Jacoby Walker has decided to attend Arkansas instead of Kansas or Utah.

 

Walker, 6-2, 210, 4.59, visited Arkansas this past weekend. Walker was offered last week by the Razorbacks and now they become the third school he has given a commitment. He committed to Kansas on June 6, but started having second thoughts once the Jayhawks made a coaching change."

 

and my favorite quote...

 

""My strength is my intelligence," Walker said."

 

I'm glad we didn't get this guy...
