DE Kony Ealy

Recommended Posts

According to scout, appears that Mizzou is his favorite at this point. He said that he "feels at home" on mizzous campus, they are always pretty good, he really likes the family atmosphere at mizzou and when he walks around on campus it feels like a family atmosphere. hopefully we can get him in here for a visit otherwise I'd say he's mizzou's.

Plays TE and DE in high school but will definitely be on the defensive side at Mizzou.

 

Along with Sheldon Richardson (if he finally makes it to CoMo) and Aldon Smith, that will be one formidable defensive line.

This is what I would love to see our coaches doing with the up coming recruits like Rome. Have these kids do the recruiting for us. Rome is going to be a stud and we need stud DE along with him. What is lacking in the d-line is pressure from the corners, Allen and Turner are doing nothing, we need speed list Wistrom and Trev.

I am willing to predict a great year out of Allen and Meredith next year.

I also think Ankrah will push hard for playing time as well. Not sure what is holding Williams back, but maybe he makes a leap as a Sophomore and forces his way into the rotation also. I also like the 2-3 DE's we have thus far, Vestal, Ashburn, and Rome are a talented bunch, though Rome may end up on the inside after a year or two.

Part of the lack of pressure from the DE's is just scheme. Unless they're stunting the emphasis is on containment and pushing the pocket in where Suh and Crick can make plays.

 

Rome will definitely end-up at DT, dude is huge. Word is that Ashburn might end-up at DT too.

 

As far as Ealy goes Mizzou had the hole-shot and getting in on him late didn't help. I'm happy to have gotten Rome and Gabbert out of the state.

Kony committed to Mizzou this morning, 11-2-09

 

 

This guy is a stud we missed out on. Mizzoo will be more than pleased with this young fella. Nice find and get. Would have been a nice "bookend"!

It's not over on this kid. We have been the brides maids and not the bride... Travis Lewis, Gabbert, on and on. I want Bo and Co to steal recruits away and show them that playing in front of 86,000 is better than playing in front of a TX high school crowd. We need some help from Gabbert and Rome.

I think we need to get busy and win some games to keep Gabbert and Rome. If we fall on our face the rest of the way, I would not count on seeing Rome in Red. Although I don't think Florida is interested in him, he will have a lot of other schools to choose from. Seems like he is a little fickle on committments and if things look like they are falling apart here, I'm afraid he will jump ship again. If Gabbert's main plan is to hit the field early and Green struggles through the end of the season he might see that as an opportunity to compete for a 4 year starting career. On the other hand if the offense is really bad the rest of the way and Watson leaves, he may go elsewhere since that was the family connection. And if Green catches fire and looks great, Tyler may go somewhere else, probably Missouri but I wouldn't rule out KU.

 

Does anyone know how Rome is doing this year? I read on one of the sites that he had fallen off the Rival's national list. Is he hurt?

With how we are producing some tremendous talent at DL I dont see Rome going anywhere. Seeing Crick going off on Baylor only solidified his commitment IMO. Rome is a little bit ahead of where Crick was coming out of HS, and Rome plans to enroll early from what I heard. As with Tyler Gabbert: if Watson does leave we probably will lose him. But we cant keep Watson just because of one recruit he brought in. It goes without saying that we should sign a QB in this class though.

Billyball, maybe it's the pessimist in me ... but I'm with you. I see more of a chance that we lose Gabbert and Rome then we steal away Kony Ealy from Mizzoo. A debate could be made for all three recruits going to Mizzoo just as easy as they all come to the Huskers.

 

At present, our Huskers are just like in the movie Top Gun ... "we have a confidence isssue". We are not playing fundamental football, atleast on the "O" side of the ball ... and that makes for some embarrasing televised games. Kinda makes you wonder if you want to play OU on TV and if you want to make it the Big 12 Championship.

 

We need to get back to the basics and play with lots of heart!

I don't see Mizzou stealing either Gabbert or Rome. Gabbert, I'm sure, doesn't want to back-up his brother again, and an incoming freshman QB - James Franklin - is Rival's #7 dual-threat QB. Rome never wanted to play in Columbia. From what I've heard, his family moved there right before HS and he doesn't like the town and wanted out.

 

If Ealy doesn't stay with Mizzou, he would likely go to Ga. Tech - his first offer.
