Assessing the talent:Had a chance to check out 2007 prospects Niles Paul and Phillip Bates tonight, and man oh man those guys are definetly worth the offers. Millard South gave North a little bit of a scare. North went into halftime leading 14-6 (North blocked the extra point). In the third quarter, North extended the lead to 20-6 (North missed the extra point). South came back with a touchdown in the third to narrow the score down 20-13 and trailing by a TD. After feeling the pressure, North scored it's final touchdown to take a 27-13 lead before South batteled back and score it's final touchdown of the game and losing 27-20

 

North improved to 6-1 on the season while South dropped to 5-2.

 

Niles Paul caught a 30 yard touchdown pass from Phillip Bates to score the first touchdown. Niles Paul also scored the second touchdown on a 10 yard pass from Bates. Phillip Bates was 8 for 12 i believe for about 109 yards and an interception to go with his 30 rushing yards. Niles Paul only had 2 catches on the night for 40 yards but those were both catches for touchdowns.

 

Niles Paul returned 3 kicks tonight on special teams as well. He has some killer speed on kickoff returns and could have ran back 2 of those for touchdowns had the punt and kickoff specialist from South not tackle him at the end of those returns.

 

Odds of becoming a Cornhusker: 80% Even though he’ll be looking around, as should every young man, eventually, I think, the Huskers should have a decent shot at landing this in state product. He will be having a new Husker recruiter as Downing will be leaving the staff.

That's good to know. Always good to pickup a few good pointers from an ex college and a current NFL player of what it takes to reach the next level

I saw Paul play basketball for North High School in the holiday tournament this year against Westside. He's not that big but he has some muscle to him. He looked athletic though and is a pretty good basketball player. Should be a good player for us in the future.

He's got a good frame, a big vertical and 4.4 speed. No doubt he's got the tools. I am excited that he wants to be in Lincoln and can't wait to see what he can do his Senior year at North. Just stay healthy!

That's certainly what he has...the tools. He'll be the top player or recruit in Nebraska next year, but remember theirs a long way to go and other teams will try and gun for him.

LJS: CB/WR Paul commits to Huskers for 2007

 

The Nebraska football team, currently in the late stages of filling out its 2006 recruiting class, received its first verbal commitment for its class of 2007.

 

Omaha North standout Niles Paul has selected the Huskers, North head coach Larry Martin said Tuesday.

 

“He was getting a lot of mail from every big school in the country — Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, everybody,” Martin said. “I think he just decided enough was enough.”

 

As a sophomore this past season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Paul, a wide receiver and cornerback, had 36 receptions for 632 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also averaged 9.8 yards on 13 punt returns and 25.6 yards on 16 kickoff returns.

 

“In my opinion, if you’re an in-state wide receiver, and you go somewhere other than Nebraska to play, you’re crazy,” Martin said.

 

Paul, a nephew of former Nebraska standout and Green Bay Packers all-pro running back Ahman Green, started his high school career in Hampton, Va., moving to Omaha 1½ years ago.

 

Rivals.com rates Paul among the nation’s top 100 juniors, while Martin said Paul “is the best high school receiver I’ve seen.”

“In my opinion, if you’re an in-state wide receiver, and you go somewhere other than Nebraska to play, you’re crazy,”

I couldn't help but be amused by that statement as it wouldn't have made as much sense just few years ago.

 

but...

"I've pretty much known what school I was going to go to since I was a little kid."

it sounds like it wouldn't have made a difference even then.

 

too bad we have to wait 1year+ for this guy! <_<

Thats ok, maybe we can get Kennedy to send a work out program too him to get him bulked up a bit and be an immediate contributer, allthough that may be against the rules, unless you called it a recruiting packet i suppose...

Is this kid going to play WR or DB? Or both?

 

Wait we have a year to speculate.

And I bet there will be a lot of it.

I've heard he is going to line up at quarterback and then just throw it to himself. Also, if we can't find a good punter next year, I think he's our man as well. :o;)

 

But really, I'm excited for this kid, even if he's not a "true" in-state kid it's great to see kids from Nebraska High Schools come in and be big contributers (of course we will have to wait and see for that)

Martin said Paul “is the best high school receiver I’ve seen.”

Pretty high praise, didnt Wilson Thomas go to North?? There have been some pretty fair WRs from NE that went to UNL the past 10-15 years.

 

Thats a darn early committment ;)

It's going to be a fun ride keeping him committed. Notre Dame, Iowa St., Iowa, KSt, KU are sure to offer. It depends on how he handles it. Does he welcome the offers or when coaches call does he take a stand and firmly declare he is going to be a Husker.

 

Ahman Green will keep him in line. ;)

Depends if we want a great WR or an average DB. I saw him play a few times last year and his defense will need much improvement.

I think that he is trying to imply that things are going to continue to be tough, and keeping Niles Paul will be extremely tough especially with next door states throwing everything they have at us.

I hope you are right BigWillie losing two top in state prospects would be a huge devastation, especially if one has already committed to us and he is relation to ahman green
