Interesting. Looks like we'll be tapping into the Ohio pipeline more than usual? We'll see how this develops.

Said it would be an honor to play for Bo, wants to get into a chemical engineering programs..and said that he has heard that Nebraska has one of the best engineering programs in the countrys..said that will play a big part in where he ends up. Is planning on coming to the Spring Game and possibly a camp in the summer. Feels he would fit in with our D and that his mother is very high on academics

Sounds like the kind of kid that we want here at Nebraska.

Springfield (Ohio) junior defensive tackle Kevin Williams is one of the top prospects in the 2011 Ohio class. Williams, 6-foot-3, 275-pounds, just completed an outstanding season, one which led to his first offer.

 

"Nebraska was the first school to offer and I can't tell you how great that felt," he admitted. "Nebraska is a great school and a great football program, and it's an honor to be offered the chance to play there. I watched several of their games and I love their aggressive defense. I plan on going out to Nebraska for their spring game, and while I plan on going through the recruiting process, my thoughts on Nebraska are strong."

 

The fact that the Cornhuskers featured what many people feel was the best college football player in the country in 2009, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, certainly won't hurt Nebraska's chances of landing a commitment from Williams.

 

"Ndamukong Suh is an amazing player and I like to pattern my game after him," Williams said of the Nebraska star. "I look up to him so much, and he's a player I'm trying to be like on the football field. Maybe I'll be his successor some day at Nebraska, you never know."

Nice. Thats great that he wants to model his game after Suh...why not do it at Neb. Does anyone else think we can tap the Ohio recruiting market? There are a lot of players here that want to play at OSU, but I think if we keep our momentum, we could definately get players.

It helps that Bo is a former OSU alumnus. It also helps that Coach Bo, Carl and Tim Beck are all from Youngstown too. So I expect them to tap into the Ohio pipeline more in the future.

Scouting Ohio has film. Apparently the competition isn't the best. Getting him into camp would be great, but he will also likely camp at tOSU. Have to figure tOSU and Notre Dame are the main competition (if they offer). (Not sure what Cinci will be like with Kelly gone.)

Good film. Thank you Ohio Pete.

 

At 6ft3 270 you have to like his size. He is athletic enough at that size that they line him up at DE sometimes too.

 

Like the height. That was one thing that they (rivals evaluating staff) said kept Jay Guy from being a 4 star kid was he is only 6ft1.

 

I really hope we can get him down here for the spring game and a summer camp.

While historically we don't do much in the Big10 states the Pelinis do have connections in Ohio and our D has become big news. I can see defensive recruits like this kid taking serious interest.

New up-date on Kevin For the Arizona game he had a little game party, he has the huskers on top at this time. He likes the D and believes it suits his style. Growing up he cheered for ND. Kevin will make a decision in the spring. Looking for a team which he can fit into their style, wants to major in engineering and will commit to a school who graduates a high rate of their football players.

Will attend the spring game with all of his family.This sounds promising :koolaid2:

Notre Dame ranks 2nd in the nation at 93% GSR (Graduation Success Rate) in football while Nebraska ranks tied for 12th (with 4 other schools) at 78% GSR in football.

 

On the flipside, Nebraska ranks 1st in the nation in CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in football with 98 followed by Penn St. with 53 and Notre Dame with 52.

When you watch his film it is hard not to see the comparisons to Suh IMO.

 

I dont mean to set the bar too high for this kid if he does choose to play at NU.

Reading the up-date Kevin sounds like he wants to come to Nebraska. His head coach and Bo are good friends and after a phone meeting he was offered.

Anyone here have a scout insider account and care to paraphrase that article on him?

Doesn't look as quick and elusive as Chase Rome and Jay Guy. But he's definitely aggressive, gets off his blocks well, and chases down who he needs to chase down. Seems like he finishes well and keeps that motor going. I'd like to see him put on about 20lbs of muscle and get a little quicker... if he can do this I think he could be a great asset to our team.

He'll be at Nebraska's spring game in April. He also said that he wants to make a decision of where he will commit by the end of spring. He's in the process of narrowing down his choices. Lastly, he plans on graduating from HS in December so that he can enroll in college early.

I know a lot more goes into it, but if he is making his decision this spring then I find it hard to believe he'll be able to discover an atmposphere that can rival ours in the spring. Game day is spectacular, but it's pretty darn good at other schools as well. Spring however - we stand head and shoulders above 99% of the others.

He sounds like Nebraska is offering everything he requires. I'm assuming he will commit at the spring game or shortly after. Hell he wants to bring his whole family to this game. :thumbs

Him wanting to make a decision by the end of spring plays in our favor. He will be at the spring game where he will be exposed to the best spring game atmosphere in the nation. :woo

B/c he has been high on us for a long time. I've yet to read anything about Williams giving high praise to any other school but Nebraska and Michigan. I'll give an update from the article when I get home from work this evening.

Rivals Article summary:

Williams is going to make his decision after visiting for the spring game!!! He is down to Nebraska, Wisconson, Michigan, and Stanford. About NU, he said that Nebraska is very high on his list because of Coach JP. He will be visiting with pretty much his entire family...Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, two little brothers, and a little sister. Distance is NOT a factor with him either.

 

Looks promising guys... potential :star:star:star:star:star
