    Exclamation Huskers offer QB Damian Williams from Louisiana

    Brand new offer....3-star rated dual-threat QB out of Louisiana....does this mean we take two QBs or does this mean Aaron Bailey is not a silent commit as most folks think?

    Watching him on film this kid is under the radar big-time in my opinion....might be a steal if we can move in and get him early before he picks up offers....

    Yeah I know too many questions...

    Only other offers are K-State and FIU....being recruited by LSU....no offer though and I would not expect one unless somthing else falls through....


    Brian Perroni[/QU@bperronAccording to his coach, Rummel (LA) QB Damian Williams has been offered by #Nebraska #Huskers and #FIU this week


    He has a great arm...some omph in it....really good mechanics....appears to be very football smart...and great footwork....also looks alot bigger than 6'1".....would assume Terry Joesph is recruiting him....

    A teaser on Scout:

    Archbishop Rummel (Metairie, La.) QB Damian Williams didn't enter the Elite 11 competition with as much name recognition as some of the other signal-callers, but Williams -- a rare four-year starter at the 5A level -- put on an excellent performance and made the finals.

    Not blazing speed, but has some good wiggle in the open field and avoiding the rush. Looks good in red and white. Me likey.

    Want! I see lots of poise and athleticism there. That's a great statline from week 7.

    Not a flashy runner but great passing mechanics. Looks like he can make all the throws. Kind of reminds me of a Wisky QB from this past year.

    Great poise thats what we need. He doesnt get all shaky when things break down, just stand in there and fires away.

    One school of thought, to some folks I have spoken to, is that we may just do that....I can see a need this year....Bubba going baseball and Turner to WR makes a good case for it....with only one skollie QB on the books over the past two years....Armstrong....

    Great looking QB prospect and he does look a lot bigger than 6'1. I'm sure he'll get many more offers. Hopefully, Terry Joseph can get him signed.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing re: RW.

    As long as this doesn't mean that Bailey is going else where, I like it. I like this kids film but Bailey I think is a better prospect for this offense. I could understand taking two QBs as someone mentioned already that Bubba moving on and Turner at WR. Get them both in an redshirt while Carnes and Armstrong push each other for a 2-3 years. Martinez will have graduated by the time they see the field.
