OL Recruiting

Recommended Posts

Hmm.

Looks like we could be gaining a lot of steam here.

 

4* Benhart getting CB’s and visiting this weekend.

4* Danielsen visiting this weekend unofficially.

4* Concoran visiting this weekend unofficially.

 

Next weekend, the Twin Towers From Texas in the 2021 class are visiting. Both 4*. Foster & Conner.

 

Would be fun to land a couple of these guys.

You’re right. I overlooked it while we were getting the skill guys.

You could go blind.

 

As to the subject, I still believe we have the physical talent to play much better than we are.  There still needs to be a rebuild of the line.  Players need to be with these coaches for longer than they have been to see the improvement we want.  That very well could need to be the new recruits coming in.

We aren't going to be able to just rely on development either.  They are going to need to find some OL that can compete to start as a true freshman because they are that good.

Good luck with that philosophy.  There is probably about 10 to 15 true Frosh OL that are physically ready to play at a high P5 level and those guys are going to Bama and other powerhouse schools.  So for now it is getting good solid frames with good athleticism and developing OL in our program is probably the route to go.  

 

JUCO could be a route that they look at for another interior player for next year.  Bland will be very good inside.

You haven't followed the history of NU linemen over the past 40 years - have you?

Yes - we have started one true freshman ever at OL, Tyler Moore, and the dude was a total wuss who transferred. 

 

Next question

Funoti started on the OL as a true freshman.  He was 2 time all conference and was a 2nd round draft pick.

 

 

Alright, party pooper, I'll be more specific. SPH said we need to recruit kids who can compete to start Day 1. 

 

The Huskers have had one true freshman ever start Day 1 - Tyler Moore, and he was a total wuss who transferred. 

 

Better?

We need O linemen who develop into animals as upper classmen so that we don't need true freshmen to come in and start.

 

If you are starting a true freshman on the O line, you have major issues.
