Does everyone still feel good about Omar? Why has it been so silent for him?
I know a lot of folks that like this kid a lot--I mean A LOT! Just saying.Somebody named Maureese Wren just got a Crystal Ball pick for NU on 247 Sports. He is projected at OLB. Was a Louisiana Tech commit in the 2018 recruiting class but then left La. Tech in August of 2018 and transferred to Tyler Junior College. Committed to Missouri as a wide receiver last June. Not exactly a who's who of an offer list.
He's like a poster child for what I want us to look for at ILB. I'm fine with having a bigger thumper in there as well, but we need a guy like him on the roster every year and ready to play.JUCO LB Eteva Mauga has verballed to NU. He is listed as an OLB but he will be an ILB here.
Pay no attention to the offers and lack of rating. There were some big boys trying to quietly make room for him. Our staff absolutely loves him and he is likely the reason we moved on from Hodges.
This will be a kid to look back on in a few years and see if he panned out as the coaches thought or not.
And I think more to come. Feeling pretty good about where we are right now. Just need to close it out.
