Is this kid a legacy?
Not that i'm aware of...
Got a little more information on this and it sounds like if he gets the offer he is looking for (a lesser football school but better academically) he will more than likely take it. So that could be why we aren't spending a ton of time with him. I do still go back to the fact that with social media and him being in Lincoln, it's about as easy as can be to speak with him and when he's around Nebraska fans every day it could potentially be an easy "flip." This school he grew up around may have been the best he thought he could get to in terms of football, and we could show him we want him. Conversely, what if we both offer and he chooses the inferior school? Then you have to hear it from people that have no clue on the situation.
Either way, from what i've been told he's a great kid and has his head on straight.
I thought I read he moved here in his teens and isn't as attached to the state school as other kids. That being said, could be he's saying that because he hasn't been offered yet. It'll be interesting to see where this goes. This could be another case where we undervalue a local kid because of the competition level. He may start to blow up after he attends camps this spring.
Moved here from Illinois but not sure when, so that may be why we don't have the best tabs on him. Like you said, he's not as enamored with Nebraska as someone that grew up here, but we could change that quickly i'm sure. Especially offering before his "dream school."
Article says he moved back to Lincoln when he was 14. Agree with everything you've said though. Parrella has shown that he is on top of things when it comes to his board, but this one is a little puzzling. At this point they obviously have quite a few prospects ahead of him but it never hurts to be in contact with the local guys, even if it means being straightforward and letting them know where they stand.

Ugh... added Iowa offer
Iowa should offer our next man/ borderline guy every year. Totally messes with us. We can't handle it.
And I lead the charge of not being composed about it
Add Iowa to the list of 'latest to offer' as of 4/1.
Few posts up from yours
TY, saw that after I posted.
State shotput champion!
I read this as he threw at 54'. The state meet record is the 64'
Either way beats what I could do by 10yrds....
