Not sure if this is the right place to post this. But someone close to the program sent me this last night. Maybe graduate transfer?  

I think Jaylin Bradley is going to leave. With that loss, to go with Devine, Mikale, and Bell leaving early, ideally you would like to bring in at least three guys. So we have Deidrick Mills, Rahmir J

Someone who I don’t want to get into trouble. Sorry. But, they said it came from coach Held.

You have a source on that?

No but it has come full circle with him. Nebraska wouldn't entertain him if there wasn't a committable offer on the table. I know he isn't visiting until January, but I think he will commit before that, and the visit will serve as the icing on the cake. And he has already visited before.

I would kinda like the pickup. Redshirt and beef up to 220-225 to fill the ozigbo role in a year or 2 after mills carries that load

 How does he fit in numbers wise right now, what position do you drop a number off? 

 

I like him,  but  not sure I see him as a plan A with our numbers/needs.

I think Jaylin Bradley is going to leave. With that loss, to go with Devine, Mikale, and Bell leaving early, ideally you would like to bring in at least three guys. So we have Deidrick Mills, Rahmir Johnson, and Ronald Thompkins. 

 

So now let's break them down.

 

Mills

Two years of eligibility remaining, and had a really good freshman year at GT. He isn't a secret and will generate a lot of buzz when he gets on campus. Mills might not be a two year guy. If he runs for over 1,000 yards next year, the pros will come calling. That Freshman year really helps him in that scenario. Even if he does stay both, you have to recruit a RB alongside him always for balance.

 

Rahmir Johnson

Rahmir Johnson is going to be in more of a traditional RB role than people think. He might have instances where he plays the Duck R, but I fully expect him to take handoffs mostly. Also, I think he plays as a Freshman.  Rahmir isn't built to be a 25 + carries a game. 

 

Ronald Thompkins

Ronald is very talented, and has an excellent build for not being that big in stature. Blowing out both knees is a red flag, but a full year with Duval might help with those issues. He is the perfect RS candidate and could blossom tremendously because of it. If he does RS, Mills is either a SR or in the pros, Rahmir is a true Soph, Maurice will be playing his last year (because he's too damn talented to stay all four). 

 

Potentially Bringing In John Bivens

First thing, he's arguably more talented than the three I just previously mentioned. I have talked a lot about his ability and I think he is elite. So there is that. But what's nice is that you're getting a kid who knows it may be in his best interest to RS, therefore Nebraska gets a very talented kid who is low maintenance in that first year, and balances out the RB room, along with Thompkins.

 

What about Miles Jones and Wandale Robinson?

I fully expect to see both go 50/50 as a receiver/rb, but it gradually change as the years go by. Wandale will be more RB, and Miles will go more Wr. Miles is built more like JD, and I think they will gravitate towards that body type. 

 

What does this say about the near future of our offense?

I think Nebraska is looking to build up its RB room, so they can have more versatility in the flats, and in the option game. I also think they're more comfortable developing pass plays that get RB's involved, as opposed to 4-5 true Wrs. It gives you better opportunities for creative play calls, and less obvious formations. 

 

I could be completely wrong in all of this.
