Rice is a hell of an academic institution and it's in Texas, so I can see why he'd be interested, but if you go there you essentially give-up on playing big-time college football. I can also see why he'd decide to evaluate all his options before making a final call.

no doubt rice is awesome... they used to be in the WAC ( i think....) or they just used to come over the hawaii often... but anyways like you said i dont blame him.... unless he is still set on being a rocket scientist (not likely....)

Evidently this kid is smart enough that he's skipped two grades, he hasn't even turned 16 yet. Kid is smart and he hasn't even grown into his body yet. Redshirt him a year to catch him up and kid could be a monster.

Wow...maybe a grayshirt + redshirt, too. Gets him that much more time to mature and develop. And that much more time around the program. TWO spring and TWO fall camps before he is a redshirt freshman. That'd be sick.

If it is true he skipped two grades, there's no way he is sitting out two years and putting his education on hold. Also, it doesn't make sense he wouldn't get looks from more academic programs, IE: stanford / the ivies, etc.

per a scout interview, he did skip two grades.

 

also enjoyed his visit very much

 

You do know at SEC schools if someone graduates on time they call it skipping two grades. It normally takes SEC athletes 7 years to complete college.

This kid is interesting. Hard to imagine a 16 year old playing college ball.

Imagine Amobi Okoye, he was drafted into the NFL at 19.

I like GMP, he is obviously a very special kid. I think getting him so young would be a gift, he has a lot of room to mature and grow.

New Rivals teaser on him, if he wants in would we still accept him?

 

Given that things don't look that hot with Hobbi I gotta think we'd take him. He's still committed to Rice at this time but he was impressed on his visit and we're in the hunt.

i wonder how things got so bad with hobbi........ i mean we were supposed to be pretty high up and now we have no shot.... i guess the only conclusion is we never really had much of a shot and we just got around to figuring it out.....

 

 

personally i think we are still in it with hobbi,.. no real infor just a feel (which most likely is wrong) but still a feeling

I'd love to get Hobbi, but I also love this kid's character and would feel good about Givens Mordi Price.

2 things....

 

What happened with Hobbi? Two words, distance and snow.

 

If Givens wants in do we take him? If Hobbi doesn't want in we take Givens... coaches want 5 OL this year. Givens is quality and has been overlooked. He's a kid with a ton of upside. Give him a redshirt year and see how big he gets. He's only 17 when he graduates high school... he's still got a baby face.

IIRC Toniu Fonoti was 17 when he got here.

Looks like Hobbi might not be husker after all. Anyway welcome Givens, and congrats on your choice (a good one)!

Hard to believe Givens is only 16 years old. Wow! Incredible potential. His shuttle time 4.49 what you’d expect from a DE or MLB. Must be very agile.

Bryan Munson just talked about him on 1620 and said he is 15 and doesn't turn 16 until next week. He said he was blown away by how mature and intelligent he is for his age.

 

edit--Munson appears to have been mistaken since the OWH states he is currently 16 and turns 17 next October.

I really like this kid's upside. He's damn smart and pretty dang impressive for a guy that should a sophomore. This guy would be a 4* if he hadn't jumped a couple grades. I think he was a steal.

just think how bo will get a chance to mold this kid directly with college level coaching and development from such a young age... by the time he gets older and bigger he is gonna be a beast.......

There's only one problem, Bo will not be molding him, Cotton will and that isn't good. He'll have alot of potential but will lose it quickly because of Cotton's coaching. Thankfully for him he's smart and can fall back on his academics.

You know when I think about it, I think it would be a good thing to have the O-line and D-line especially, along with whoever else wants to take some leverage classes. I'm not too up on these, but I would think something along the lines of judo, jujitsu, wrestling, grappling, etc would help with footwork and leverage. I would think these would be good things for linemen especially and help out alot. Anyway, sorry for going on a tangent.

our OL has improved significantly since cotton got here, including a pretty big step up this season. it's certainly not where i want it yet, but now that we're starting to have some depth and competition, i expect it will continue to improve.

We might be building depth and competition, but I don't think our offensive line has gotten better under Cotton. We can do better for an OLine coach. Too bad he has NU ties... makes it so hard to let him go. We've shown flashes, but no consistency. One awesome pull block for a huge touchdown, followed on the next drive by totally inept pass pro leading to a sack.

Spot on, one area they definatly have imporved on is pass blocking. In the CCG there were 2-3 plays were Martinez had 7 seconds or more to throw the dang ball. That is more than sufficient time to either check down, or throw the damn ball away. Run blocking is so hot and cold with this line it drives me to drink heavily on gamedays.

Good call, Speed. The most damning evidence that we can't just line up and run block our way to a win when we want to... SDSU. We had those guys beat on talent in probably every position, and definitely on the offensive line. While we did have a young QB trying to force things in his fourth game, there's absolutely no reason we shouldn't be able to line up and run up and down the field on that D. It should've been like moving the sled on the practice field, and yet, we failed to open up any good holes. They did have a lot of fight, and heart, that is admirable. But NU should've plowed straight through those guys.

 

On a lesser note, we also failed to take over the ISU and KU games, both defenses I have the same feeling about.

Thats the most sickening part, with the move to the Big 10 we will need to slow the game down against the likes of tOSU, Northwestern, Michigan, etc. Those teams can score, and will score, with any resemblence of a power running game we should be fine. But the only time we have seen that type of attack is at most 4 games this year.

we have a top 10 rushing offense. we might be the second team ever to have three 1,000 yard rushers. that didn't happen by accident. considering our OL was a joke three years ago, your claim that we haven't improved under cotton is just plain ridiculous.

 

is it where we want it to be? of course not. i want to be able to grind it out against anyone. and i wasn't all that impressed by the play of our OT's, particularly in pass pro. i don't expect a reincarnation of the 94-95 pipeline (and anyone that uses them as their measuring stick is delusional), but i think we can and should expect quality line play. this season was the first time in years that i felt the OL was getting closer to consistently delivering that. now let's see if he can coach up the young kids enough to replace the best pair of guards in the conference.

My guess is Barney is a better run blocking than pass blocking coach, which makes sense because he played in Osborne's power running scheme back in the day. I've mentioned in another thread that if Barney does struggle at coaching up pass blocking, then perhaps Bo should look into hiring another OL coach who specializes in pass blocking? Both Devaney and Osborne had 2 OL coaches on their staff. One specialized in run blocking while the other specialized in pass blocking.

 

Hypothetically if Watson were to leave, my guess is he'd take Gilmore with him. In that scenario if I were Bo, I'd have Ron Brown coach both WR & TE like he did during the Osborne and Solich eras. Then I'd hire another OL coach for pass blocking and let Barney focus on run blocking.
