Right. Again, i'm not sitting here trying to say every single local kid has to be at Nebraska. But there's been a constant issue(s) the past two years with this staff in regard to local kids (mostly Omaha) that has crept up again with this PWO situation.Honestly, I was surprised he had no D1 offers. I agree, he should have been offered a PWO immediately. I think he has a real chance to be a starter for mizzou and has great blood lines. I think he'll work his butt off. Look at what Clester Johnson's kids have done, the first one was overlooked and did pretty well, the 2nd one was overlooked and has done pretty well and now the third one we really wanted still had a bad taste in his mouth about Nebraska (not Frost's fault). As I've said many times, if we're going to sketch a little bit, let's do it with a local kid that we are highly confident will stick it out. I think Isaac could have been someone who put the work in and maybe be a contributor/starter by his junior year. Now we'll never know.
Some of the things that are told to me from either the recruit, or from their coach make my head spin on how we can be paying what we are to coaches and still have the things i'm being told happen. It really sucks when you watch some coaches at South Dakota State or North Dakota State with basically zero support staff and a quarter of the salary just doing things better. Those ones don't burn you many times, but when the FBS guys are doing it, it sheds a lot of light into why we are having our issues.
The only thing that boggles my mind more is the "he's not a fit" response from fans when our staff offered him. If that's really happening we have way bigger issues than what I am referencing.
