I had a chance to watch him in action against Northeast this year and from what I saw, he could be a pretty decent player for us. The only downside to the game I saw him play, was that the coaching staff didn't use him enough! Whenever he got his hands on the ball he looked like he could score. I think he had less than 10 rushes that game and didn't even start.

 

I'm still not sure why he went to Northstar....if he's as good as advertised, he should have played for Southeast or Southwest. I hope he doesn't fear the competition! :hmmph

 

I see him following his blackshirt heritage and playing safety for the skers. GBR!!

From what I've heard from my homies back at The Star (that's what we call it... In my head), Mike chose LNS because of the coaching staff.

 

That's just what I heard through the grapevine, so don't take my word for it!

Why hasn't the staff offered? If they do offer,would they prefer him at DB or RB?

I believe he'll be at CB or S in college.

 

This. A month ago in a Huskers Illustrated interview, Minter said that he really wants to play DB. This was after the MSU game when our DBs played lights out.

This is one guy that I really want to see become a husker. I hope that we stay on top of him and make it known how important it is for him to follow in the tradition of his dad.

 

On a side note...... Crap when did I get so old that those I watched playing before, now have kids coming to play college football!!!! SMH!!!

I can almost gaurantee that Jr will be signing with NU in 2013. SR is as about a bigger kool aid pusher that you'll find.

 

You don't move your kid halfway across the nation to play his final two years of high school football in the same city your alma mater is for nothing. Must also mean he trusts in Pelini and where the program is headed

Mike Sr. Has said as much about Bo. Plus he loved his time here in Lincoln and wanted Jr to be here. Like Banderas, offer=commit.

 

He honestly could play RB here, but gotta love the fact that he wants to follow his dad's footsteps and become a Blackshirt.

He will probably commit as soon as we offer. We have told him that we will offer him, we just don't know when. (Doesn't make sense to me, but hey, I'm not a coach). Oregon and Tennessee are pushing on him big time he says.

I will begin getting nervous if Minter and Banderas are not committed after junior days.

No need to worry, both their Dad's played at Nebraska. In MIchael's case he actually moved here to Lincoln to be closer to the program. Color me not owrried about either kid.

I was just thinking the exact same thing... Man I am getting old.

Says if we offer, he commits on the spot. He's just waiting for the offer. Coaches want him to gain weight though... he's only 175 right now and needs to put on weight.

He's only 16 right now, there is plenty of room to grow. He could easily bump up to 180-185 before his senior season starts.

Of the 2 I am more worried about Banderas. Just seems like we haven't had a lot of luck with in-state kids that don't commit early. And I really want both of these kids.

Kudos to whoever is in charge of the Husker breeding program! I see Mike Sr. was 5' 10". Keep up the good work finding suitable mates!! Anyone have the Banderas measurables for comparison? chuckleshuffle

No one. He is just trying to make it sound worse than it really is.

Here's the thing with Mike. There have been some, let's say maturity issues off the field. They want him to tighten those things up before fully excepting a commitment from MM Jr.

 

He just tweeted the same more or less

They have a lot of space this year, best bet is to get him now, and worry about any maturity issues if they crop up. We need to keep D1 players in state whenever we can. They can always take it away if he doesnt keep his nose clean.

This is true, but Mike is the closest thing to a lock we will see this cycle. He wanted to commit, said so last week he probably would. I think this is good for him actually. Show the staff his head is on right and by the time the Spring Game rolls around he's N.

The staff may take it before who knows.

Mike is still only 16 I believe, so without his Sr around all the time to keep him in line, I believe this will only help.

 

And sorry, no I will not go into details

I think this is a very fair approach with this conditional offer. If there is some concern with maturity establishing ground rules is a great approach. It's good for these kids to have goals & motivation and to communicate the expectations.

Robinson comitted early and then decomitted. So... others? The only instate recruits that NU misses on are the ones that gets offers late in the process (prater bros.) or there's a coaching change. Not sure when Harland Gunn was offered in the process but he may be an one exception.

Gunn was offered fairly early in the process but I think he just wanted to get out of NE.

Robinson stung. There haven't been many get away, just like to see these 2 locked up before other schools start sniffing around.

If i remember right Harlan Gunn moved to NE from somewhere else and wasnt in the state very long and wasnt that high on staying in the state anyway.

That's right. Although, the said some pretty tasteless things about NU on his way to 'South Beach'.

We HAVE NOT offered Minter. He knows what he has to do on and off the field to get the offer ---Bo Pelini

On the field...Hopefully this means in camps this offseason and not like on the field his senior year in October...?
