    the final push till NSD

    i heard josh harvey report that we have 13 committs today. from everything i have seen and heard we may be able to push the number up to around 20. by my account these are the names that keep coming up in no particular order.

    12-alexander...ATH
    13-whitaker...OG
    14-cross...RB
    15-valentine*...DT
    16-peat*...OT
    17-moore*...ATH
    18-ford...CB
    19-shelton...CB
    20-fuller...QB

    21-lambert...LB
    22-c jackson...DB
    23-curry...DT
    24-goodman...OL
    25-bourque...RB
    26-bush-loo...TE


    i placed a star by the ones that from the sound of things, seem the most likely. red said in another thread that we have told bush-loo(TE) that we have no spot for him. and the late push for goodman sure makes me hope we havent lost out on peat, but the numbers are getting awfully tight. any other names that i may be over looking as a possible husker?

    EDIT: updated for an easy overview of were we may be at...its all speculation on my end

    for peat sakes...(pun intended) i thought i had this thing narrowed down to at least the most likely to fill out the class, with this rutgers deal and who knows what else, you need drama, its all right here!

    14-peat
    15-ford
    16-shelton
    17-moore
    18-valentine
    19-curry
    20-goodman
    21-cross/bourque
    22-fuller
    23-lambert

    with the likely spots available around 6-7, we may very well be turning away some very good prospects. this hast to be more than we can take i would think. not sure who i would leave out if i had the choice. some are probable already silent so the options are even less for coaches to work with if they have a prefrence of 1 over another. having everything go our way is not likely so maybe thinks work out fine as 2 or 3 guys sign elsewhere...what are the chances we could squeeze a couple grey shirts out of a few recruits?

    From OP, I would take out Goodman and put in Fuller. And I'd say that would do it.

    Bo & Staff were at Goodman's house tonight....I wouldn't give up on him just yet...the fact that he let the staff visit after saying he was done gives us a shot....and yeah his brother goes to Arizona State so its going to be a real tough pull....but you never know....

    Also Peat to me is still only 75%....not a given....

    My apologies if my post came across as fact. It was purely opinionated speculation.

    It didn't and no apology needed... Just a discussion between two friends...

    One man's opinion. In looking at Peat I am very concerned. I have seen the projections from those who know much more than I do, but I am thinking he is going west coast. At one time it was between Stanford and NU, now USC has become a contender. I don't see us winning the trifecta with the Peat clan. Hope I am very wrong.

    I don't think its a slam dunk but the odds are in our favor more than most folks realize....the family connection helps....but as we know with the Manning brothers (Payton and Eli) its not always a given....sometimes younger brothers want to get out from under the shadow of the older brother....on the other the family (Peat and Moss families) loves Bo and his and staff....and Andrus is almost a lock to start as a Frosh at Nebraska...Stanford has commits from 5 OL already....four of whom are 4-star rated thus he would not have that guarantee their....yes the academics woudl be hard to beat....and perhaps in the end that is the decider....as for USC I just can't buy into the Peat family sending their son their....they too have a 4 and 5 star OL already committed....thus less chance of early playing time....

    So yeah I do have a few concerns....which is why I puts our odds at 75%.....can't take this for granted just because of family ties....but I like our odds a ton....

    Yeah you did....so I think our odds just went up in landing Andrus....

    We won Carnes and Todd Peat the last couple of years on NSD when most folks had given them up for the dead....so keep the faith....

    My bad. I must have read an old thread or something.
