    Akoy Agau

    Good example of the kind of guy that Nebraska absolutely needs to keep in state.

    Supposedly has offers from Creighton, Iowa, New Mexico, Nebraska, Tennessee and Marquette among others.

    Tra'Shawn Thurman, a central Sophomore, at 6'6" is garnering early interest as well. With guys like Gessel, the 7 footer that Iowa recently signed from S. City...the area isn't completely void of talent.

    Josh Jones and Akoy are tight.

    Advantage: Creighton.

    I'm surprised Texas is going after this kid.

    I don't get it. why is he better than any other 3 star kid that is equally ranked. Why is he more valuable to the program?

    Because if all other things are equal he IS a Nebraska kid. Time to change the LOCAL perception of this program. That's why.


    I could have just replied: "Of course you don't get it. What's new?"

    Maybe the new coach could have a conversation with Eric Behrens...maybe Eric is looking to get into the college game.

    Is this a serious question? Are you for real in not knowing why a Nebraska kid would be better than a kid who is equally ranked?

    Bet he would have been a decent player for NU. He got hurt down there and had some pretty good players ahead of him IIRC

    Assume that I am serious. Can you answer the question?

    HWJ,

    You know I've met and talked to John T Reed. I've never met a bigger blowhard in my life.

    I thought I was full of myself, until I met Reed and realized that I am quite humble compared to that egomaniac.

    This is quite simple, and I don't understand why you can't figure it out.

    Let's reference football recruiting. Assume a three star prospect with offers from LSU and Nebraska. Assume everything is equal in the recruits mind and further assume he's a Nebraska lean. But he goes to LSu. Why? Mom and Dad want to see their son play and keep him close to home.

    Geography is a huge advantage. It should be EASIER to recruit instate talent than out of state talent. So if we have an advantage, and we still can't bring in a recruit, that should tell you there's something wrong with the program.

    NU football wants to lock down a 500 mile radius of Lincoln. Why can't our basketball program try to use the same geography advantage?

    and how many DIV I prospects are there in a 500 mile radius of Lincoln? Not that many, IMO.

    No way am I going to look that up, but when you have metro areas of St. Louis and KC and Minneapolis plus everything else, ie 1.7 million people in Nebraska, it has to be substantial. Enough to fill several div 1 basketball teams.
