Heard he has 3 years to play 3 years which is huge. The kid was a big time target as a senior but lots of schools started to figure they couldnt sign him because of grades. It seems like right now he might be just a touch under the radar as most JC guys are or seem to be. On 1620 Crabtree said that he has not really been evaluated yet.

Love his size. If we truely want him I would bet that we can get him. He is at Fort Scott. Although we cant forget Jason Pierre-Paul, Sims has been very good to us.

As it stands now he'd be here for the winter as a 3 for 3 guy. If we had room and it was good with a Fort Scott staff we need to stay tight with then he could even be here this Fall as a 4 for 4.

Coach Sims has been very good to Nebraska. I though he tried to sway JPP our way on signing day, but I dont remember.

I heard that too. Supposedly they had JPP pretty much lined him up to sign with us, then when he changed his mind, Sims was pissed because he was trying to set up the pipeline from FSCC to NU.

That was the case. Sims was livid as well. Every time I saw JPP in the NFL combine I just imagine what could have been with him and Suh on the same DL.

nice to see a WR in the mix..... i can understand why we aren't WR-U but you'd think some guys would like to come on over and be legends... its not like we haven't thrown the ball when we've had the talent around (by the way how does that make our WRs feel now knowing that the OC has changed some our Offensive stratigy because basicly they suck.... :facepalm: exceot for you Niles :corndance and maybe you Kinnie)

It wasn't just the receivers that forced the change. They got plenty of help from the OL and the QBs.

yeah i know i was just labeling all our problems on the WR in a vain attempt at being overly simplistic..... the problems ran deeper as we know.......

 

but i think an improved OL will no doubt help our QB situation.. presumably hoping our QB can get ball from point a to point b in a reasonable relatively mistake free amount of time (never a given)....

 

so i do think the OL being better will spur better QB play which will hopefully flush out better WR play as well (unless they really do just suck)

Can you say Frantz Hardy? This guy reminds me so much of Frantz. Hopefully he'll pan out better though...

 

Personally I really really hope we get this guy, especially after I found out he's a 3 for 3.

If he is a Frantz Hardy type reciever then I want him bad. We need some recievers and he looks good.

I think this guy looks streets ahead of Frantz Hardy. Frantz "no hands" Hardy? :lol: Really? Maybe I tailgated too hard in college, but all I remember of him is dropping balls. Am I wrong? Anyways, this guy looks good and he would only benefit our squad!

:yeah

Hardy was blazing fast . . . but he dropped 2 out of every 3 balls thrown his way. I do remember a few long TD catches . . . but there were way more drops.

 

Edit: Also, we already appear to have Frantz Hardy v.2. I thought Gilleylen looked Hardy-ish outside of the Sunbelt games.

I laughed

Yeah dude me too. That was pretty good. Seriously, though, I would like to lock up Stanley. He seems like the next JUCO stud to me. I know we can't keep taking big JUCO WR's (Kinnie, Mo Purify) forever, but hell, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. By that I mean, it has worked well for us so far. Mo was an absolute beast his senior year, and Kinnie started to show flashes last year. He has two years left and I could definitely see him putting it all together and eventually becoming a solid, solid number 2 behind Niles this year, and then taking the lead next year, like Mo did. I don't know if Stanley is on their level talent wise, but he's got the measureables.

As it stands now he'd be here for the winter as a 3 for 3 guy. If we had room and it was good with a Fort Scott staff we need to stay tight with then he could even be here this Fall as a 4 for 4.

The bolded is the rumor i'm hearing as of lately.

 

people are sayin he's N.

Sorry for the info stealing as I hit this board and HI.

 

Don't think he'll count towards this class.

according to ljs blog:

Reciever plans to enroll at NU in July Just got off the phone with Stanley Jean-Baptiste, a JUCO wide receiver from Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College.

 

He said he has committed to Nebraska and plans to enroll in July. He redshirted this season at Fort Scott, meaning he has four years to play.

 

More coming.

... yes he graduated in 2009 in North Carolina, he was being heavily recruited by some of the major SEC schools but then they backed off because he had grade issues... he ended up qualifying at the last minute but by then most recruiters had backed off so he never got any offers... he decided to go to Fort Scott to try and get better, get more exposure and then get back in with the SEC schools... so he went a year, redshirted, and then was planning on playing this year as a RsFr at Ft. Scott and then trying to get on board with an SEC school next year (he's improved his 40 time 4.59 to 4.45, put on weight 194 to 203, and gotten his grades higher)... but Nebraska approached him and said that since he is qualified already and has proven himself,... he could come play for us if he wanted to come play this year... where most schools were looking at him for next year... so instead of waiting another year at Ft. Scott and hoping an SEC school offers him to play 3 years... he's opted to come to NU in July and play 4 years, beginning this fall. (we had an empty scholarship available, but i'm not sure if he will count for 2010 or 2011).

 

IF he is as talented as suspected... there's a good chance he could come in as a back up in the fall and then start next year in Niles place after Niles graduates... He is DEFINITELY needed at NU and his commitment eases my concern at the WR position... with Paul, Kinnie, Enunwa, and Jean-Baptiste, we should have some great talent at WR over the next couple of years... not to mention all the guys like k. Cooper, k. Bell, Gillyean, a. Bell, w. Henry, etc. who could break out at any moment... oh yeah and the WR that will come in 2011 that haven't committed yet...

oh yeah the news is getting super good today.... i am really stoked about this guy and coming in with a 4X4 potential.... he could who knows really push some of these guys and perhaps even make an immidiate mix... plus the FSCC guys i'm sure will make the transition easier... big thanks to their coach... in my loss of blood to my head i forget his name.......

So if he is coming in July, is he still counted as part of the 2011 class? How does that work?

I believe 2010

 

yes, he'd be part of the 2010 class. this is great news, but i wouldn't expect a ton out of him as a freshman, no matter how talented he is. this offense just doesn't lend itself to first year receivers. perhaps by late in the year he can work his way into the rotation.

 

in any case, another great recruit.

Interesting...

 

So, 2010 class, burnt his RS at Fort Scott, which means he's got four for four starting right now.

 

Now let's see what Gilmore does with him.

Unless there is reason to believe that the offensive line wasn't giving adequate time or passing lanes to a QB that was already playing at a high level, then an improved offensive line isn't likely to make an impact on QB play. There are times, especially with quarterbacks that don't move around in the pocket well or whom don't throw outside the hashes well, when an offensive line giving up 2 seconds or less will have a direct impact on QB play. However, contrary to traditional thinking, many stats often attributed to lineman in that regard have a far better correlation with the QB himself. Sacks are the most common statistic in that regard. Even when QBs change teams, their sack rate tends to hold rather steady. Traditionally we place the blame on the offensive lineman for a sack, when in actuality the QB controls most of the factors that would lead to a sack.

 

If a QB showed high aptitude when given time, then the improvement of the offensive line would allow him to showcase that more consistently. However, most of our QB issues are independent of the offensive line. Our QBs are slow in the pocket. Their drops are too slow, their reads are too slow, and they tend to hold onto the ball too long (talking specifically Cody and Zac......Martinez has his own issues). I know a lot of people have changed opinion on Zac since the injury revelation, but I'm not one of them. My notes from the Florida Atlantic game are full of things that Zac really didn't do well. His stats look good because of the level of competition. The passing windows were huge and he often had 4 receivers open. He missed the proper window more times than not, often throwing players into zones and out of bounds. It is a classic example showcasing that completion percentage does not equal passing accuracy. His completion percentage may have been high, but he was not putting the ball where it needed to be put, when it needed to be put there.

 

That said, I'm of the opinion that despite the injuries, Zac improved as a QB as the season went on. He still has a lot of work to do, however.

 

None of that means the offensive line doesn't need to improve, because they do in a huge way. Where we should see improvement there and indirectly help the QB is in areas like not committing fouls and in the running game. So, so often last year we were a block away in the running game. Often poor technique just killed us. For example, I can think of at least two personal foul calls last year that were a result of poor cut blocking. One was against OU (iirc) where an interior lineman was attempting to block a LB, whiffed, and his moment rolled him into a blocked defender. The other I can't recall the game at the moment, but a missed cut block caused an inadvertent leg whip on a defender. We use a lot of cut blocks in this offense, particular on backside zone blocks and our execution of those blocks really needs to improve. That's just one example, of many. The plays were often there, though, but the execution did not always follow.

 

More experience, a deeper, healthier unit, and dare I say a potentially more talented offensive line should indeed help the offense as a whole. I expect a big turnaround in this offense this year, not the least of which being what should be an improved offensive line. There's really no reason that this offense can't get back to the 425-450 yards per game level.

Man, brophog, that's dang near a book. But a good read nonetheless. A little off topic, but a good read on the offense. Now I myself am a little ADD, so I'm kinda surprised I could concentrate long enough to comprehend all that, but good job.

 

As for Jean-Baptiste, he's got the measurables to be a good one. Good to know he grew up in SEC country, hopefully that mean's he's a baller. He's got a sweet name, and if he can be as good as Mo was or I think Kinnie will be, it'd be a great catch, especially considering he'll be here a full four years. Let's just hope he picks up the offense and, to get on Gilmore's good side, KNOWS HOW TO BLOCK! :) . This eases some of my concern at WR, although I'd still love another gamebreaker-type.
