Richardson is rated higher than Sibley. Ellison is not, but it seems the staff sees a bigger upside to him.
I suspect the lack of recruitment by us created a little chip on his shoulder and he didn't want to wait any longer. Best of luck to him at Kentucky.
Stefon Diggis, Mike Gieseke, and Dorian Johnson if we're talking guys who had us in our final two or three, but went elsewhere. Each made or are making their mark.
In an alternate universe, where people go to museums, read books, and have conversations, Harris's approach to recruiting that does not take into consideration the feelings of followers of recruiting websites seems pretty damn normal and healthy.
Apologize? That is awesome.
If you remember, Noah Brown was an "athlete" coming out of NJ. Harris is much more traditional WR, which fits better with our current personnel.
Jordan Howard was a two-star, then B1G first-team, then second in NFL in rushing to Zeke.
Funny. I worked at The Pub. Loved their happy hours. Was no stranger to The CI or Tony's, either.
Union PIzzeria- great food and drinks; live music space in back (called SPACE)
Bangers and Lace (college crowd mixed with younger locals)
Temperance (tasting room, but cool Portland-like vibe)
Yessir. Evanston also makes my list of favorite places.
OK, I'm an Ohio alum and Athens could be my favorite place on Earth, but if Ohio State offers...
I kind of suspected this kid would eventually get an offer. Has "sleeper" written all over him.
Not gonna lie; if that's the case, I will crack the fuck up 'cause that's ridiculous.
Confused here. We want Martell to be this great leader and, in fact, recruiter, but now that he's singling out a player that lit it up at the all-star game (Thomas), it's a shot at Lindsey? Oh, brother.
Oliver Martin is his name.
Some kids he knew in Cali that are committed to Nebraska. Ended up visiting there a few times and formed connection with the WR coach.
I'm with you Bulldog. I think we need a guy who just wants to get open every possession and not just the ones where he can catch the home run ball. Martin really excelled at the Opening. Is quick and has great hands. Hate to use the Renfrow reference, but it would seem apt.
Yeah, but it's also pretty realistic. If he feels like he's been in Martell's shadows all this time (especially this year when he couldn't play) and if he and Tate are not friends anymore, maybe it's something he can't overcome right now and it's for the best if he goes someplace else.
Wow. This is big. Let's see if we can keep this O-line healthy.
Lattimore's is such a great lesson for blue-chip recruits who come in and don't play, don't start, or have to battle through injuries: work hard and your patience will be rewarded. When you look at six DBs going pro in such a short amount of time, our recruiting haul this year looks pretty realistic in terms of supply/demand.
I'm honestly not sure that Lindsey doesn't come back into the fold. I think that, given his injury, he's been out of the spotlight for too long and, given the all-star games where there were other recruits getting all the love, he needs some attention. It could just be a case of having the need for coaches to give him that type of affirmation. Is this a bad sign? Maybe, but remember that he's a teenager.
I think the question the staff will soon answer (if they visit him as reported) is whether this is a situation that can be or should be remedied. There's no crime in letting him walk away if it's just avoiding an issue that will have to dealt with later. Best of luck to him, whatever his decision.
He arrives tomorrow.
I thought of Thomas, too. I also think a guy like Oliver Martin would thrive in our system. He probably doesn't grade out as high as a lot of other guys, but he's shown out at camps and catches everything.
Virtually impossible to wade through all of the conjecture now, but hopefully a clearer picture will emerge regarding Lindsey's decision. Seems like an incredible amount of time to pour into a recruitment (on both sides) to pull back for trivial reasons. Thanks to all the posters who've taken the high road in this thread and not trashed the kid with "Next" and "Go lose at Nebraska" comments.
Best of luck to him.
