I really believe Reed will be a husker when its all said and done. I'm not sure how close he and his brother are but you have to think that helps a little. With the way NU is playing and the hype that we are getting and the proximity bt him and NU one would think it won't be long and he will jump on board.

I think Kyler being a focus of the NU game plans can only help also. Kyler should have nothing but positive things to say about the staff.

A little bit of inside info here. He got offered by UCLA a couple days ago and from what I have been hearing instead of playing RB in college he might be playing DB. Very athletic and might be even more athletic than Kyler. Just doesn't have the size Kyler has.

What I have been hearing is that Bo wants him as a safety.

May have to make it to the BV West vs. Aquinas game this year as we have a prospect from each side.

 

Speaking of KC teams, did Gardner go 6A this year? Gardner-Aquinas is always a great game, I hope they still keep it on the schedule. Bubba Starling (Gardner) is probably a KU commit assuming he plays football, but Lucas Powell made it up for the Iowa State game...not sure what came of it. Probably nothing considering the performance/outcome. Boomer Mays from Eudora was with him. 160 tackles as JR. Haven't heard anything about him either.

As far as I know, Gardner is still 5A. I think they're trying to make the jump to 6A though.

Gardner I believe is staying in 5A but they are moving into the EKL.

Does anyone know whats going on with this guy? I really would have thought he'd be on our commit list by now and he even still is showing just one offer, from NU. Is he waiting for other offers, have we backed off, are his grades not that great?

I was thinking the same thing about a lot of the recruits not too long ago...then I realized...it's still only May. We got some time to go still. I figure when the summer camps start, we'll see more action. Hopefully, we can get a lot of these guys in for an official in the fall!

From Husker Journal:

 

DAGAN REED, RB, 5-11, 200, 4.5, OVERLAND PARK (ST. THOMAS AQUINAS), KANSAS

 

“I just have just one offer and that’s from Nebraska. I’m not hearing much from others schools.” Reed said

 

“I’ve been to Nebraska before my brother plays for them now. I don’t know if I’m going there I’m going to give it some more time.” Reed said

 

“I haven’t heard from Nebraska for awhile now, I know they were recruiting me as a defensive back player.” Reed said

Had a nice catch and run for 80 yards against Starling's team. Ran over a kid then outran the rest of the defense. Was the only play of his that I saw(didn't see the whole game) that stood out. Nice athlete, but didn't appear to be that special. There is no way this kid should be the fall back plan if, god forbid(no pun intended with AG) Green goes a different route. We could do better, probably why we are looking at him in the defensive backfield.

He didn't have a good game at all. Normally he breaks one or 2 a game for TD's but tonight the o-line for Aquinas played pretty bad.

He did have a couple nice catches out of the backfield. One was a TD called back in the 3rd I think. That was a pretty difficult environment for anyone in HS. Games like that aren't something that occur regularly around here. St. Thomas is normally much more dominant than that. I wouldn't base too much of your opinion on this 1 game.

Any news on Reed? He still only has one offer. Was he not that special his senior year?

He had a decent year. It is more the fact that he is not near the athletic specimen that Kyler was coming out of high school. If NU was in dire needs for a safety I could have seen a late push at Dagan, but alas the need wasn't great. He will end up somewhere, and who knows maybe he will blow up, but he just didn't fit the specific needs that Bo and the staff are looking for to fill out the class.

Is it injury or something? I thought we were hearing VERY good things about Reed's athleticism and such earlier in this process.

I heard it was grades that were keeping people away.

 

 

Given it appears he's fallen off the map, not even nonBCS and/or 1AA teams offering, it wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Dagan will likely walk on to NU this fall chuckleshuffle

 

for as much attention as recruiting 4 and 5 stars get, convincing a targeted walk-on to pay for his own education over scholarships elsewhere is a pretty impressive measure of recruiting ability. great pick-up by the coaches. it'll be interesting to see whether he starts out at safety or on offense.

Honestly I don't think there were a whole lot of D1 schollies there for Dagan. Think this was his chance to play at the D1 level at a place where he was comfortable. I heard grades were one scaring point for schools, but he didn't exactly tear it up last fall either.
