    Sounds promising for the final Husker push and getting the first picks, leaving no extra scholarships this weekend.

    My thought too....the fact that Derrius picked Ohio means the class must be full or they are thinking it will be thus, no scholarship for him...17 now and add Marsh (grey shirt) in and we have room for 4 perhaps 5 more commits...

    Derrui swill be a good fit at Ohio and should do well their...

    To me, this implies that NU has that scholarship locked up with a recruit that has yet to officially commit. Is that the way you read it RR?

    yeah also maybe he decided he really wanted a shot to play QB, at NU his chances of that were slim to none. Hope he does well, it will be fun to watch him at Ohio

    Phillip Bates from Omaha. He's playing QB already and got quite a bit of work this year. #2 rusher, #2 passer and #2 in total offense on the team in 2010.

    Boo Jackson graduated, so Bates looks like odds-on to start. They have another JR QB on the roster but he didn't have any stats in 2010 and a FR that likely redshirted.

    Vick will be stepping into a situation where he will probably be able to compete for a job in a year or so.

    Vick wasn't real high on NU's charts nor was NU high on Vick's. Vick wanted to play QB. Has always wanted to. A year ago he wasn't sure if basketball or football would help him most. I think the deciding factor for Vick was what we were recruiting him for (ATH most likely ending up at DB) vs what Ohio was recruiting him for (QB). While I want to jump in on the "this tells me the other recruits are a go" conversation, I can't say that I honestly feel that way according to Vick's situation. Vick would have had to compete hard to play QB with the guys we have coming in (Turner, possibly Starling), as well as the guys we have on campus (Martinez, Green, Carnes, Kellogg), as well as Marsh who was also a pretty decent talent his last year in HS. So, he most likely would have moved to DB. And I think it would have been just as rough competing to see the field there with the talent we have and coming in. Ohio was probably his best option. Good luck to him.

    Nebraska liked Vick as a safety prospect but not sure if he would have gotten an offer. Given next year's ultra-small class, a greyshirt was probably not a good idea. Timing just wasn't there.

    Meanwhile, Ohio seems like a good fit to his abilities at QB.
