Nice.  Lots of solid offers.  Would love to have him :bigredn:.  Have we landed recruits from IMG?  I am thinking not and now have some Florida connections on staff.  (Please no Bookie jokes and he was CA when we recruited him).

Broc Bando - although he was born and raised in Lincoln.

Does anyone know if he plays? I find it hard to believe that anyone who actually steps on the field at IMG is rated a .83

If it makes you feel better, he is currently rated a .86. At 6'4", he may be a littler under-sized for OT. Maybe he would project higher at guard.

And Broc Bando was an 84 in 2017

Updated his profile.  Interesting that he got a big upgrade from Rivals and a big down-grade from 247.

Depends on how accurate that measurement is. The NFL routinely uses tackles in the 6'5" range and they're a lot pickier on such things. Granted, at that level it's more likely a right tackle, but they're people, too.:P

 

There is actually a trend toward smaller lineman, partly due to the rise in collegiate schemes that don't require mountains to run behind, and partly because all that extra weight just isn't healthy. Players that can move, especially in Frost's scheme, are invaluable.

Hey, nice video from the young lad.  I imagine he has tons of drive to make a life better for his family.  All the best to him.
