Are Bivens, Parker and Houston all announcing on signing day? Thanks!
No because we counted 5 back to 2018 we would be at 22 in 2019 if we finish at 27
Houston is on NSD
Parker will announce after his visit to Kansas on either Sunday or Monday
Bivens I have no clue but would think once he has the green light would think would be onboard. He may not get the green light
I hear Monday
With all of the changes...two signing days, the portal, etc I think it wise to hold some scholarships into Spring and Summer. You also have deserving walk ons to consider.
That is my assumption too. Gets home later on Sunday of course the Super Bowl game and discusses it with thr family and pulls the lever on Monday
Agree unless you find four more can't pass on elite prospects. Looks like we are down to Houston and Parker as 4 star and maybe Bivens. I think Bive s chances get even better if Parker commits elsewhere
28 I think is where we end at best
I think its Houston and Bivens only.
And despite the knee issue, the kid sat out an entire year, so he should be ready to work. IMO...You dont ever pass up on a kid with this much talent and upside. You've got the spot...take a chance...even with Thompkins coming on board.
Hell...they will both redshirt anyway unless Bivens blows them away with his recovery.
Certainly get your point, I would be curious what the conversation is with Thompkins and what it would be with Bivens. How long are we giving them? Putting them on medical makes them retire, and you don't want to be the school that forces that on a kid.
You’re both right, it would matter. Right now we’ve signed 26 guys (counting D. Daniels). 5 count back towards 2018. So we’ve used 21 of 25 spots for 2019. If we only sign Houston, that leaves us at 22 used for 2019.
So, you’re correct, in 2020 we could then in theory sign 28 initial counters. Counting 3 back to the 2019 class. But we still have to remain under the 88 and then 85 rules.
Right now we’re at 16 scholarship seniors for 2019 (that number will obviously change with attrition). If we’re at 85 scholarships with 16 seniors our 2020 number would be 19 (16+B1G3).
It gets confusing with multiple scholarship limit rules. 25 initial counters and 88/85 overall total.
But if we bring in any additional transfers, those would also count towards the initial counter numbers.
LMAO! I simply asked who everyone thought we might end up with and maybe two people answered and the rest of the thread turns into a numbers game...…...
Well then, Houston and Bivens
Lets hope Suh and Rex ball out and get a few “Nebraska” mentions on the biggest stage
