Bid Red Report:

 

Assessing the talent: Short in stature but big on heart. Looks like Fabian W., and will come up and stick someone in run support.

 

"the kid is supposed to have close to nil body fat and is mostly athletic muscle, so ive been told. Also been told he has great hips and can change directions fluidly, this is coming from my buddy in fort worth who says he has seen his team play, FWIW. anybody else with a rivals subscription can fill you in on the rest,

 

edit: im not tryin to say my friend is the ultimate judge in talent, hes just an IT guy for a small business, but at least he's a football fan, and he if he claims he has seen this recruit's hs team, i believe him. " - pigsonthewing

 

Odds of becoming a Cornhusker: 80% Ted Gilmore did a wonderful job with Blue in the recruiting. Now we must hold on to him.

“It’s just the academic support, the graduation rate, and they get all of their players taken care of with school first and then athletics are second. My dad really liked that.”

our coaching staff's forays into Texas is finally starting to pay dividends. I think we have oral committments from Texas this year than we have in a long time.

 

edit: just got off the phone with my friend kevin, he says Blue's team played in 5-A, and that they have several d-1 prospects, with 2 already going to Baylor. He said he will try to give me updates, i told him to join the website so he could give updates himself :D

I read in the paper that his time in the 200 meters would tie the existing Nebraska state record! Sounds like a burner.

actually Blue would own the state record. Blue=21.4, state record=21.53

Then the world herald was wrong! I bet this kid ends up playing corner. Especially with what you say about his lateral quickness. According to the article, he is going to be matching up each week against the opponents' best receiver. Another great CB in the making.

I read the actual paper today. I didn't recall reading that part in there. They either changed it, or I need to get some cold medicine. :woo

posted this in witts thread, but there is an interview with Blue, on here also.

 

wednesday jun28s interview.

 

 

http://www.huskers.com/AudioArchives.wvx?D...E_AUDIO_ID=4239

Blue's interview is around one hour, 15 minutes into it, Witts interview starts around the first 10-12 minutes, the audio is crap because of the size of the file is reflective of the quality, if it was cd quality this 2 hour clip would be over 1 GB in size.

That had to be the worst highlight video ever. I have no idea how he did in it. The "video" was horrible. Who ever taped it, sure didn't get a highlight type video. Most of the time I couldn't tell which was him or even what happened at the end of the plays. :(

:yeah

 

Looks like he has good closing speed, but was out of position a lot. Hopefully, that can be corrected and maybe he can grow an inch or two.

 

 

Worst "Hilight" video I've ever seen/heard, but then..I've only seen this one and my Nephew's

I just realized that Blue has been subscribed to my YouTube channel for quite a while. I'd like to think I was the reason he decided to come here. :)
