    Thumbs up Huskers after JUCO DE & WR From Iowa Western CC (DE NE kid)

    No offer yet, but the Huskers are interested in former Lincoln East DE Devon Nash who is playing ball at Iowa Western CC (in Council Bluffs)....has an offer from Kansas State...JUCO recruits have not yet been rated....good shot at being a 4**** once that happens....would expect him to be 'N' if offered....

    Wt:260 lbs
    Bench Max:365
    Squat Max:475
    Vertical:32 inches

    Looks pretty good on film....anyone remember from his high school days?

    What was his ranking coming out of high school? Were his grades so bad he didn't get any D-1 offers? Was he a late bloomer, and was a 6-3 210 DE at Lincoln East? Strange that none of our lincoln area Maxers have chimed in......

    His name does not ring a bell. Then again, Lincoln East football rarely rings a bell either.

    Looks like from research on him (Deon Long) on the web that he is well traveled....Played at WVU in 2009....transfered to New Mexico and sat for a year and then played at New Mexico in 2011 and is slated to play at Iowa Western CC in 2012....

    So it appears grades are not an issue....interesting....

    Sat out the 2010 season due to transfer rules after coming to UNM from West Virginia University...has four years to play four
    http://www.golobos.com/sports/m-foot...ng_deon00.html

    Based on this I would think he is a 2-2 guy having played at New Mexico in 2010 and Iowa Western this year....


    Had 47 catches for 809 yards and 4 TD with an avg catch of 1.2 yards in 2011 for a 1-11 New Mexico team....

    More on Deon Long from 2011:

    Long broke the school and Mountain West single-game record with 378 all-purpose yards in New Mexico’s overtime loss to Sam Houston State. Offensively, Long caught nine passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns, and returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown.

    Look like Long went to New Mexico as his HS coach became WR coach at New Mexico....

    Also looks like there may have been some issues with former WVU Head Coach Stewert....thus the first transfer...

    Lincoln East football hasn't mattered in so long even their own students don't go to the games much anymore.

    He didn't make a whole lot of noise coming out of high school. Just spoke with a class mate said that (long story short) discipline not talent was the reason for his choice to go JUCO. Says the kid was always a good athlete

    if Deon Long went to play at WVU, transferred to NMU, sat out a year, played a year at NMU, transferred to IWCC, and will play this year, won't he have only one more year to play? Math wasn't my major, though.
