He's an amazing kid, a born leader, friends with every type of kid and a over 4.0 GPA kid that scored super high on the ACT.

 

The flat earth thing is a running joke around Burke right now.

 

He committed to Notre Dame for the relationships and networking after college because he is aware the chances of making it pro are low and wanted to set himself up for the rest of his life.  Not because of what brand of uniform they wear.  He doesn't care about those type of things.

 

You guys don't know the kid.  This was a miss, no doubt about it.

 

 

Any other running jokes going around Omaha high schools we should be aware of?

Dude, if you had any idea how ridiculously dumb these kids are these days...

 

Sorry I was a little defensive, I've had him in class and coached him. I'm not his dad, but if any of you ever met his father you would be blown away by his story.  It is really inspiring.

 

X is exactly what I wish every other top tier athlete would be like.  I do know that Betts may have more measurables and better testing numbers, but I also don't believe he will ever wear a Nebraska uniform (or any uniform above JUCO).  I hope I'm wrong.  For those that asked who I'd remove from this class to add X, it would be Betts.  From conversations had from Burke football coaches and Nebraska's football coaches, they felt the same way.

 

I'm glad he chose Notre Dame, not because of football reasons.  I would obviously have loved to see him at DONU.  It was the reason he made the choice and his motivation to be the best student he can be.  I'd never blame anyone for taking a scholarship to Notre Dame, Stanford, or some place like that.  You can't put a true value on what that degree would mean.

A bit unfair to the kid after he worked his a$$ off to qualify no?

He hasn't qualified yet, they believe he will.  I hope to hell he does.  He is an amazing athlete and I love Nebraska Football and want him to be a game changer for us.

He wouldn't have been allowed to sign if it was a concern. He has been working hard on his grades and as long as he continues to do what he has been doing all year he will be fine. You think he's gonna blow it with a semester left? A bit unfair if you ask me. Maybe you should have kept that thought to yourself

Was only ribbing you, but I totally believe you. 

 

The Betts thing is a little disheartening (and this isn't just your take) but the first top 50 ish skill player in State in however long who worked his tail off to eligibility and several fans question him ever getting on the field. Guys like Watts need those (few) like Betts to succeed to build a reputation of impact players in the state of NE who don't have a back story involving cattle and corn.

100% agree with this
