He was the one that just flipped and it was supposed to be a surprise. I never have even heard of this kid, but he looks like a good OL commit.

This is a great pick up. I love having Dan, but I was really hoping for Senat :)

 

We needed to kick off our OL class though and this is a great way to do so.

The measurables of this kid are exactly what Chryst was taking out of high school and molding into monsters at Wisky.

 

Now people time to freak out because he is only a three star with not much video out there.

Good pickup, but always makes you wonder...when will he change his mind again?

Getting an offer to play for Nebraska CAN change anybody's mind. We always worry that some 'other' offer can 'steal' our recruits. Maybe it's our turn to start doing the same!! Great job staff!! Welcome to Nebraska!!

Funny story. I think I saw this kid on a recruiting visit Saturday. I was walking my Dad around the stadium showing him the construction projects, and we noticed some folks over at the football practice fields east of the Hawks center. I took a picture, then zoomed in digitally and I could easily pick out Barney Cotton. There were maybe four or five other folks standing there, including a couple of player-like guys.

 

I discarded the picture, so don't ask me to post it. Recruits and guys on recruiting trips need to be left alone by the fans.

 

But having read this story, I'm just about positive it was Samuelson and family. It didn't even occur to me when I posted this yesterday that the guys I saw might have been this kid and his folks on a trip, but when I read the article about the timeline, it's about certain it was him.

After reading the article in the OWH i dont think we need to be worried about him switching commits. Was offered and made an unofficial in one week, and it sounds like him and his family did everything the right way. There was high intrest in NU and he jumped on the offer after visiting, he notified Pitt staff before visiting us that he was going to check us out and had nothing but good things to say about Pitt, good family that handled the situation right. Hes here to stay, and can play anywhere on the line. Welcome Dan.

You are absolutely right!!!!!!!!!!!!! A kid from Indiana with no ND offer throws up red flags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need to keep using ND as a measuring stick because they have had tremendous football teams for years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kinda shocked by the lack of posts/bitching in this thread so far.

 

I think back to Whitaker in the last class when watching Dan's film. The kid finishes blocks and makes sure anyone he locks onto/hits is not going to be making the play. I'll say it again, the first guy I thought of was Ricky Henery and the second was Corey Whitaker.

 

This kid has a frame to build on and as been said in other interviews, the staff has told him they could see him at any of the three OL spots. Meaning they love his power, footwork, speed and technique. When Paul Cryst likes a kid, it should say something,

I think the Whitaker frustration came out of the fact that we were being so selective with our class last year and a few of us felt that scholarship could have gone out to a better prospect. Looking back now though, it was crucial that we added an OL that could play outside and he was the only for that class, so I'm ok with it.

I would love to have a couple of Henry's on the line. It will be interesting to watch what teams come calling as more tape becomes available. Perhaps he won't let his coach send it out.

Chryst and Rudolph obviously know O-line given their success at Wiscy and they wanted him. Not a big pick-up but as with Whitaker last class he seems like a solid sleeper pick-up that fits our O.

That is if they could keep the personal fouls and false starts down. ;)

I thought of Whittaker too, except that my thought was a little different.

I absolutely loved Whittaker signing last year. That kid was a monster: down field, second level, his feet, power, and nasty attitude... Every kid I've watched since, I compare to him. I watch DanSam film (as well as others) and I see a dominate player who crushes his opponent. But Whittaker was on his feet almost every play, not on the ground, he was in second level hitting safeties.

I like DanSam so far, he's a good one, but i wanna see him on his feet hitting 2-3-4 guys in the same play. Glad he's N.

Now crush em!

Michigan offered him on Friday and he almost visited. Garrison talked him out of it, hinting that we would view it as a decommit if he decided to visit. He is now 100% solid after rethinking it. It was Garrison's first trip, so that shows how important he is to us. He also got bumped up to the highest 3 star on 247. Michigan, Alabama (Knevel) and Arkansas are going after our lineman, thats a good sign.

Need to hold onto him. I already think O-Line seems a little thin so far this class, losing Samuelson would of been bad. Kudos to Garrison.

I might be a little concerned if Chryst gets the Wisconsin job.

 

A 100% solid commitment isn't what it used to be.

 

 

Kids these days. . .

Both Alvarez and Chryst have said that he isn't a candidate for the job.

Staff might be really upset about that. Unless he is still truly solid. But regardless, they don't believe in OVing while under commitment.
