JUCO Recruiting

I get what Frost is saying.  And I generally agree.

 

But it looks like we're only taking two at most here and it might end up at one.  

 

I think 2-3 per class is pretty handy.  Get a ready-made starter at a couple positions of need.  So I think in practice it will end up being about where we were at this year - would probably have taken an OT if we found a fit.

It also takes the pressure of the freshman to come in and perform right off the bat. Allows us to maybe redshirt some kids and get them in our strength and conditioning program. Especially all the O-lineman we took this cycle.

The staff seems active in JUCO, Transfer, and Gradtransfer markets on an as needed basis. I think that's what Frost was getting at. Overall, an emphasis on player development means there is less of a need going forward. There will always be attrition and that's were JUCOS and such come into play.

I like the way we attack the Juco market, but we need better results going forward. Last years crop is looking a bit dud ish thus far with Bell leaving, Woodyard and Williams doing next to nothing. The defenders didn't see the field much either though Deontai Williams was good in limited action and Honas was limited by injury. Hopefully we see more from these guys next season and we can get a bit more out of our Juco recruits going forward. I'm confident in this staffs ability.

He’s a walk on

Is it just me or did this come out of left field? I assume we are looking at him on OL not DL. 

 

Was Bland going to play Center. Thought he was a Guard. 

 

Still interested if we were to bring in Bland if grades work out.

He could compete though. Good news is they ran shotgun at IWCC so he's already got that portion down. Not that many teams run under center but doesn't hurt his chances to already be proficient at that.

 

HUDL looks like he might get a lot of holding calls based on his pancake/tackle blocks. Looks very physical though! Even if he ends up scout team, what an opportunity for our dline to go up against a more mature and experienced player.

 

Also doesn't hurt to FINALLY utilize IWCC and have that door open in the future.

I'm rather impressed by this: 1) the #1 JUCO guy at his position, 2) solidifying our relationship with IWCC, 3) adding quality depth to a position that was shaky last year, 4) not even using up a schollie for all this. Nice!

Rated the No. 1 junior college center by JCGridiron.com, the native of Algona, Iowa, will continue to recover from a torn ligament in his foot before arriving in Lincoln for summer conditioning.

 

Wegener said Nebraska encouraged him to wait to arrive until the summer because he could earn better academic scholarships. The 20-year-old prospect left Iowa Western with a 4.0 grade-point average this month.

Question - the two guys (Watt and Canty) who went Juco last year — do we have to reoffer (if there was mutual interest)?  

 

Basically yes.  It sounds like we'd take Watt back if he has things in order.  I don't think Canty really played this year and with the tackles we got in the 2019 class, if we're looking good with 2020 guys I'm not sure we'd still be interested.

from what you posted about Andrus Peat in the NFL a few weeks ago, we could use a 6' 5" guard to have a pro offensive line..... 

 

I wonder if we don't string some guys along a little bit, because I doubt Canty ends up at Garden City without our influence.

 

Just something to think about, obviously no real absolute knowledge.
