Didn't start getting offers Til late. Originally he was a basketball kid but has started to draw some big time football offers. We played them in 7 on 7. Very good athlete has a high ceiling.

It means reorganized. Back in the 50s they reorganized some small school districts. Nixa is now a 5A school which is the 2nd largest class in missouri

Visited for the BYU game. We picked up our recruitment in the last month or so.

 

Visited Minnesota last month. Looking to visit Michigan and Iowa State in addition to Nebraska.

Do we really need another TE?

I think a couple of big time TE's could pay dividends! We have been TE poor for awhile, Reed was our last true threat at TE but then the coaching staff forgot he even existed. A legit TE can be a matchup nightmare, not to mention if we want to get to a true power running team (or the Stanford model everyone is currently saying we should become) we need to be able to line up in 2 TE formations that are capable of running the ball down the other teams throat, but also capable of exposing a weak LB in pass coverage against a stud like this kid or others could be.

Dead period update. Not a lot has changed but a couple different names on and off the list.

 

Priority:

DT - Not much that is known.

DE - Unfortunately the same as DT.

OT - We're in really good shape at OG but are in dire need of tackles.

WR - Two small burners. Need at least one big yet.

 

-----------------------------------------

 

My guess at the number for each position. Commits are capitalized in red - others are targets.

 

QB - 1 - PATRICK O'BRIEN

RB - 1-2 - TRE BRYANT, Kingston Davis

WR - 3-4 - JD SPIELMAN, DERRION GRIM, Desmond Fitzpatrick, Isaiah Simmons

TE - 2-3 - JACK STOLL, Tony Poljan

OT - 2-3 - Matt Farniok, Alaric Jackson, Stewart Reese, Royce Newman

OG/C - 3 - BRYAN BROKOP, JOHN RARIDON, BOE WILSON

 

DT - 2-3 - Amir Watts

DE - 2-3 - BEN STILLE, Mykelle McDaniel

LB - 4-5 - QUAYSHON ALEXANDER, GREG SIMMONS, David Reese, Cameron Goode

CB - 2-3 - DICAPRIO BOOTLE, Maurice Chandler (JUCO), Lamar Jackson

S - 2-3 - MARQUEL DISMUKE, JoJo DOMANN, Brandon Drayton, Eric Burrell, Nehemiah Augustus, Markell Simmons (JUCO), Tony Butler

 

P/K - 1 - CALEB LIGHTBOURN

 

Carry on, we do want another TE. Would love to add Chase! Need that type of height as a receiving threat. Red zone situations will be lobs all day.

I suppose Carter was, but didn't seem to get used until later in the season. He had an ok season 24 rec 329yds and 2 TDs but I'm thinking more like Hunter Henry, the kid from Arkansas. 46 rec 647 and 3 TDs. Yes I realize he only had 1 more TD than Carter but he was more of a factor in their offenses as a whole, and defenses had to really game plan to stop him.

 

If we have a TE or 2 who the defensive coordinators really have to worry about then that would mean a lot more 1 on 1 coverage on our stud receivers. That would really improve our passing game and offense overall

Little late in the process. Don't see this one happening.

There are players we have offered a week before signing day that have committed sight unseen. Never too late in the process.

 

He will be visiting after the dead period, or so he said.

He is a 4.0 student with a 33 act score who wants to major in engineering. Smart kid. He will learn fast and has the athletic ability to do the job. I love this prospect. Academics will be huge for him. Does Michigan have a better engineering program than Nebraska? Or does Minnesota? That will be where he ends up... Best engineering program. I don't think he'll go far from home to fl state.

Minnesota and Michigan probably have a better engineering program than we do if you count all the departments. We definitely have our strengths, such as mechanical. But, Minnesota and Michigan are very very good engineering schools. Don't think that rules us out necessarily however.

 

Just speaking from experience as I'm currently in the ME program at UNL and considered all three universities.

I know but those are usually on players where we are their best offer and they are our backup recruits. This guy has FSU and Michigan offers that have probably been recruiting him for awhile. Not saying we don't have a chance, but it's a pretty big long shot if you offer these type of recruits less than a month before NSD

Thats because he was injured at the beginning of the season.

Visiting Michigan this weekend.

 

Langsdorf will be in-home on the 14th. Oklahoma State coach in-home that day as well.

 

Has basketball games the weekend of the 22nd so not sure if he can take a visit that weekend.

 

Looking at Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Nebraska for visits. Also considering Minnesota, Iowa State, Florida State and Missouri.

Reed was our last true threat at TE but then the coaching staff forgot he even existed.

 

 

He had two more receptions his senior year than he did his sophomore year.

No other visits planned after his trip to Michigan this weekend. Says basketball makes it tough.

 

Thinking he commits on his visit.

 

We are stopping by today along with Oklahoma State and Missouri.

Great to get him on campus. Wonder if he is a plan B for Michigan?

They're waiting on Asiasi. Couldn't care less about Chase. Hope he (and other recruits) start to realize that.
