    Crap - so he garnered positions 1-5 by himself? This guy should be damn good.

    It's not fair bringing professionals into the conversation.

    Great news for NU, but this kid has missed all summer workouts, 7 on 7's etc. Definitely gonna have to catch up with the rest of the class. Still excited as hell for him and NU!

    I'm sorry, I thought I was complimenting the guy. You owe me an apology.

    Plus I'm not into monkeys like my pal - that's a Wimberley thing.

    ...so you think he has been sitting on the couch eating donuts?

    He'll play early with the new freshman red shirt rule, and I think he will prove he can help.

    ...so you think he learned as much about the offense sitting at home as he would have taking part in 7 on 7 drills with Vedral calling in plays and offering insight? You think his workouts and nutrition regimen were on par with what NU offers? I think he will help too, but getting to NU earlier would have been beneficial was all I was saying.

    You guys convert Barrow to a running back yet? I know mush mouth in particular, and LSU in general, don't use quarterbacks.

    Huskers play Troy this year, wish us luck. We'll probably lose, like you guys did.Passive aggressive, like you fellas. Did I do it right?

    Came in damn light after not working-out for a while but the talent is shining-through. It was a coin-flip as to whether he'd ever get here but taking the chance paid-off this time. Kid is a stud, would have had everybody and their dog after him if he wasn't such a huge academic risk.

    He was the 10th best back in the composite. tOSU as an example signed the 3rd and 11th in the composite at the position.

    LSU would beat Nebraska by 3 TD's this year. Calm down.

    Little back story on the kid

    He is actually from Sacramento, Ca

    Moved down to Texas to play at Trinity Christian. A school that Deion Sanders is involved with

    Was a 3 star RB for a lot of the recruiting cycle.
    Played in this game with Deion as his coach and was then heavily recruited by Tennessee and Nebraska to fill out their rosters as the coaching changes had them short.

    Deion called plays to make the kid as well as his school shine

    Let's just say the kid was not consider a Top RB out of Texas before the game

    Especially when he went to camps in the summer of 2017.

    I guess offers from Clemson, LSU, OSU and USC can be sneezed at.

    Yet he didn't visit any of the schools
    He actually only visited Arizona St and Nebraska after the game.

    Top prospects love to visit schools cause that is when they party and get free stuff.

    Never look at the offers always the visits.

    That logic is not applicable for a guy like Washington. No one was willing to use an official on him because it was almost assured he wouldn't qualify.
