Sekona, a 6-3, 305-pound standout from Greenbrae Marin, had been trading messages with Nebraska about an unofficial visit before Tuioti came aboard. But the consensus four-star prospect has also known the new NU assistant for more than a year, having taken multiple short drives across the San Francisco Bay to visit Cal and sit in on D-line meetings and practices.

 

What Sekona noticed was how Tuioti never tried to oversell him. With the Cal players, Sekona saw someone who explained the whys behind the technique and has a love of teaching uncommon in a just-do-it culture of coaches.

 

“What sets him different from the other guys is his ability to coach you tough but be able to help you grow as a man,” Sekona said. “Coach Tuioti treats his players fair. It’s those who are willing to put in the work. He emphasizes that.

 

“He doesn’t care who’s the best player; it’s who’s putting in the best work and who’s going to help us do the job. He loves his job and is serious about it and wants to have a winning team with players who can thrive.”

This is about as dominant of film as you will see from a High school Dlineman. Jamar has a tremendous build and looks to be carrying very good weight. He is explosive off the ball, and shows tremendous agility for his size. If he were to come to Nebraska, I would pencil him in as an early contributor. He has everything you want out of that position. He appears to be physically mature beyond his years.

I don’t know what I like him more as a DT, or a guard. He looks like a monster at both positions. 


Easier to find OL than DL....we have one or two walk ons who will contribute as well going fwd.

My guess is in this recruiting cycle we need to jump into the 12-18 overall recruiting rankings, which means somewhere between 10-12 4* type guys (at a minimum).  For me, it seems when we come across a DL type guy as a fan base we seem to think about how we can move these guys to the OL.  I'm still of the mindset that we need the "big nasty's" on the DL!  What I'm hopeful for is that if we can only bring in 10-12 4* type guys that all of them on the DL or DE are 4* and projecting high and expected to contribute in the second year of the program.  All that to say, this guy seems more like the lower trajectory of what we really need at the position.  Don't get me wrong, love to get him ... just stating more of the "top" and "bottom" of what I think we the staff wants to get moving forward.

 

This guys comments of the Spring Game are quite the "sales pitch" of what you would want every recruit to experience and go back home feeling.  Hope he comes to the :bigredn: !
