^^^ His (Logan Wilson) pinned tweet is rather interesting.  Just curious how "close to trouble" that pic is for Frost & Co ... as this is a "part of his resume".  It doesn't necessarily bother me ... just curious if this sort of thing is weighed out or a concern.

 

It wasn't on Frost's list of stuff, and if it was it would probably rule out 95% of 17-18 year old football players.

I am extremely unhappy about the dead period at this point. No one is posting anything on here and it forces me to pay attention to work issues while I am at work. FML.

Came here to ask who the heck this kid is?

It looks like maybe an OL from Fork Union Military school, which is a prep school in Virginia.

I would assume walk-on obviously.

First: who uses AOL anymore?

Second: if it was April 1st, I would think this was a prank. His highlights are pretty bad and several of them are holding or him getting his butt kicked...

Thanks again for these Mav! I believe we will only take one NT this year and that will be Tony Fair. Why do I say this? Well, for 2019 we will have the transfer from Utah, Fair, and Daniels as an RSoph. We could also move Khalil to the Nose or one of those DT to Nose as some played it last year. 

 

Here is my breakdown of how many we land at each position

QB-1 - Officially done at this position. 

RB 3- The only reason we recruit this position is in case someone is looking around still. 

WR- 3- Potentially four if we get our targets and Pittman wants in you do not turn that talent away. 

TE- 1- Going all in on Hickman and will probably not target anyone else until the staff feels that he is wavering. 

OT- 3- Need to get a few at this position, Austin really likes Ike from the KC area and we need one more if we get him.

OL-2- Already got Bland and now we need another inside lineman for this cycle. 

Offense- 13

 

NT-1- Fair is our main guy and we are sitting well with him. Although, it has been relatively quiet on him lately. 

DE- 2- Ty Robinson is the top target and if we don't get him we will get Newsome.

LB-5- Need to get Henrich and then Jermaine Johnson would be our next top target. If we get those two we are done at the position for 2019 with 5.

CB-2- Javin Wright is high on us and now we need to land a big fish here.

S-2- One will most likely be a true Safety and the other may slide to corner if need be. If Domann is done with football two true Safties will be necessary here.

 

Defense-12 

Total- 25

I think we need to take a freshman NT and redshirt him because three of the NT that you listed are going to be seniors.

Thank you for posting this. It is really good information.

Yea we could do that, but it feels like the staff isn't pressing the need for a Nose so that is why I said we are most likely only going after Fair. It would make sense to take two but we could take two in 2020 and still be fine. If we do go after another guy for 2019 he will replace one of the freshmen in the depth chart as a soph or RSfresh. Four is the ideal number to have with one guy as a potential Nose but truly a DT in the 3-4 sort of like Khalil Davis.

Fair- senior

Grew up a Husker fan.  Has a family member that attended Nebraska.  Said he had some FCS opportunities and other walk-on opportunities.

So I believe Henrich is supposed to commit this month. I thought I have seen a few other kids we have a shot at are committing this month. Is there any list out there like a watch list for kids who will commit by months end? With dates? 

 

Something to look forward to in dead period month.

If Henrich commits this month and Washington passes his test and becomes eligible this will be one good month.

I agree - but we probably won't find out about Washington until the first or second week of August.

That was me and we just got my son's test scores back from a test taken in early june.  So somewhere between 4.5 seconds and 4.5 weeks - sorry for the broad timeline.

It's absolutely ridiculous how long it takes to get back.  With technology on computers now days, they should be able to get the scores almost instantly.

Completely agree. I know they take time to analyze the results to determine if certain questions were worded poorly and missed by a majority of test takers. They will sometimes throw those out then, but it still shouldn't take more than a day or two.

The ACT has an essay portion that is manually graded by two graders. Combine that with the sheer amount of kids that take it at once and it will take some time to get it done. Even if that is only a day or two for a given kid,  I think they are trying to get everyone their results at the same time so they don't have to deal with a constant barrage of questions from people wondering if theirs had been done yet.

Our top two OT JuCo targets are from Garden City CC. Also, Canty is going there, so one of them will have to be on the inside as that is a very talented group of lineman for a JuCo to have.    Kadeem Telfort and Olaseni are the ones I am talking about.

@Mavric I'm not convinced the two recruits that aren't on campus make it either although it sounds like they're committed to Washington no matter what.

 

Got any guesses as to who it might be?

 

It's hard for me to imagine Gebbia staying if he's not the starter. 

 

I could see some guys that just aren't going to get any playing time being given 'the talk' as well

Yeah, that is also true about the two other guys.  I'd like to be more confident in Washington but I'm not holding my breath.  I guess I don't really have a feeling one way or the other about Watt.  Nate Close said yesterday morning (before Canty's announcement) that he thought all three would make it but 2 out of 3 was a safe bet.  So even he doesn't have any real idea.

 

If I had to speculate about other early departures, Jalin Barnett would be at the top of the list.  I don't see him ever contributing.  And there would be a couple other guys who might not come back for a fifth year if they're not really  in the mix this year (Neal, Ferguson, Alex Davis and Avery Anderson would be in that group).  I think some of those guys WILL be in the mix this year but if it ends up not working out, they wouldn't surprise me.  Then you'd be to the younger guys who don't like how the depth chart is shaking out.  Pernell Jefferson (though we'll need some ILBs), Quayshon Alexander, Tony Butler, Marquel Dismuke and Gebbia could be in that category.  Plus there always seems to be a couple guys who you'd think would have time to work their way up but jump ship early.

 

Obviously I hope things work out for most of the guys I just listed.  But I'm sure it won't for all of them.

Avery Anderson is perplexing to me. Kids looked legit as a recruit.

 

Barnett makes sense.

 

I thought Dismuke was one of the few guys in our D last year that looked willing to hit people but it is so hard to tell anything from last year's D.

 

TBH I'm for as much turnover as possible in these first couple classes.

With the talk of not having to sit out a year, or if Gebbia transfers out he could apply for immediate eligibility like Tanner Lee, or he could be on a fast track to graduate in 3-3.5 years and grad transfer out.

 

I have no insider knowledge or preference one way or the other, but just throwing out possibilities.

From what I'm told on the "buy in" we are on the "cusp" of a National Championship.  We win it all next year ... at least that is what the red kool-aid folks seem to say.  :-) 

 

I'm all :bigredn: on Frost ... just a bit more realistic on the timeline and how all this relates to recruiting and building back the OL's and DL's.  I've bought the stock and will carry it long term.  I'm glad I have him in my portfolio.  I think I'll like the return on investment and expect a 12-15% return annually and can see this stock being the next Google or Amazon.
