Klein (Texas) Collins defensive back Charles Jackson has seen his offer list double since last Friday. He picked up three big offers over the weekend and added another on Monday. He admits that a few schools stick out early. Where do the Huskers currently stand?

 

sounds like we are right up there in the lead for this kid...... strong offer list too

Any news on this guy?

Since the Whorns just got Josh Turner, and they already have Qunadre Diggs, Leroy Scott, and Sheroid Evans they are done with DB's. Now hopefully we can push this kid our way.

I hope us getting Santos could swing him our way, but this kid has a very impressive offer list and has alot of choices. Adding another top flight CB in this class could be huge.

 

It would also be nice to swipe Tevin and Charles right from under Texass's nose.

Rivals now lists his top 3 as:

 

Arkansas

Nebraska

Oklahoma

 

If we get Charles, would he be considered a "relevent recruit" that UT claims we can never pull from Texas????????????????

If Texas offers, then yes. Even if Texas claims they didnt want/didnt need him it still would be a huge recruiting vistory consider he has offers from Florida, Oklahoma. I read on shaggybevo that if they miss on AG/Jermauria Rasco then they will offer charles. Think about it EZ, Tevin Mitchel, Aaron Green, Charles Jackson those are 3 out of the top 20 texas porspects!

I know man. If we get him here on 10/16 our chances increase tenfold IMO. You forgot one though. Jamal Turner. We could possibly pull 20% of the Texas top 20 out of there this cycle. I would put money that we get at least 3... ;)

How could I forget Jamal :facepalm:

 

I'm with you, we get atleast three. If charles makes it to Lincoln, and he postponed his announcement last week to take visit. Then our chances sky rocket, especially if he comes with David Santos.

Probably truth to both statements. They are like Mack Brown's Nazi propaganda writers.

I like our chances then. The only team that scares me is OU. I think if Charles was going to get a UT offer he would have gotten it by now.

I agree, OU is worrying me. I hope he notices the amount of depth they got and notices the openings we will have.

The thing is that we have comparable depth. Hopefully he wants to come here and compete everyday.

corner is actually one of the positions that i feel like could be depleted (possibly a little over the top) in a few years unless we recruit well in the next couple of years. Prince is a senior along with Hagg and Gomes. Dennard will be a senior next year and could possibly leave after this year. If that happens who do we have? Middleton (soph), Mitchell, Evans, Green and who else? I might be missing someone but Blue is pretty much done with his second torn ACL. At this point nobody out of that group has done anything. If history has proven anything Sanders will have his unit ready but if one of those guys leaves or gets injured that leaves 3 corners on schollie. One more doesn't develop properly and we are down to 2. I'm not saying we aren't sitting in a good position or the position is in trouble, just that if we don't land a couple big fish in the next couple of classes we could possibly be in trouble going forward.

evans and green are supposedly looking pretty good. that said, we do need to get a couple good ones this year. shouldn't hurt that our secondary is getting some hype.

i believe dijon washington was moved to corner and looks really good.

Good to hear, friend. I was beginning to worry Washington would become a bust and just another guy that never works his way onto the depth chart. I know two years really isn't enough time to start judging a player, but having several freshman contribute the last few years has spoiled us. Washington was a four star recruit and I'm just really hoping he'll pan out and be a good one for us.

im sure with the younger defensive backs, its gonna be hard to stand out when you have 4 all americans ahead of you (yeah i said it)...but i think we'll be ok, although next year we will be sorta thin at that position

This would be a huge get if we can pull Jackson out of Texas as well. Two of,if not the top two DB's out of Texas. However, I think Boomer will be tough to beat out with Charles. Mr. Santos time to start chirpping in Mr. Jackson's ear. Hopefully a great showing by Prince and Denard will also help our case.

sounds like Santos has been in his ear, and he liked what he saw from Nebraska on tv last weekend.

 

he'll be in Arkansas this weekend

Well hopefully Bama can give them a good ol' shellacking...Arkansas scares me when it comes to this guy.

As much as I wanna win the recruiting game, I think Id rather see Bama lose so we can move up the rankings.

That would be nice. But if Arkansas beats Alabama, then Arkansas would jump us in the rankins. As long as we keep doing what we keep doing, we will move up the rankings and be there in the end. No worries with that as long as we keep dealing.

I don't care who does what. If the kid comes for the Texas game and is not impressed by our secondary he doesn't know football. I am going to beat our cohesive NU chest here: "There is no better secondary coaches than Marvin Sanders and Bo Pelini." There really isn't.

Amen to that brotha, me thinks even Hellen Keller would agree with that one.

Good thing he doesn't have a Texas offer, because I have a feeling he'll be pretty impressed with Texas's secondary as well. They've been winning games, not the offense. That D is very impressive. Fortunately we won't need to throw the ball more than 15 times like Texas will...our secondary will have a few more oportunities to shine than theirs. With Gilbert throwing away so many passes I can't wait.

Update:

 

On Rivals Jackson lists a top 3 as Nebraska, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

On Scout Jackson only lists a top 2: Nebraska and Arkansas.

 

There is a teaser on Scout that Jackson is going to make his decision soon to either a Big 12 team or an SEC team. I wonder if Scout is still considering Nebraska a Big 12 team (even though we will be a Big 10 team when he arrives in the fall).

 

I do not have any inside sources or any more info on which one of these schools Charles Jackson is planning on choosing, but it sounds like he is going to make his decision soon. I sure hope that teammate David Santos has been in his ear and that he has a good visit for the Texas game!!

said he'll probably commit shortly after a certain mid-october visit and decide between that team and Arky

I like our chances here... I like our chances here even more if it's a night game.

 

Doubt its a night game now that Texas has two losses. I don't think it would have been a night game anyway, because the schedule of events that night (Nascar).

I just really hope it's not an 11 game.. waiting at south stadium at 6 AM doesn't sound too fun..

 

2:30 seems most likely at this point.

:yeah My thoughts too.

 

Don't forget that last season Nebraska and Oklahoma played at night on ABC regionally and ESPN2 outside the region and both teams had 3 losses going into that game. Oklahoma was ranked 20th and we were unranked at the time. The other night games happening that night were #5 Cincinnati vs UConn and #12 USC vs Arizona State. Each of those games were shown on either ABC/ESPN, ESPN2 within their respective regions.
