A lot of reasons to love this kid. Art Briles built prolific offenses by recruiting these types of 3* kids out of Texas with speed. Anxious to see our offense develop in years to come.
Thank God he isnt a 3* lineman out of Texas.

Anyone have stats for baseball? Can’t find any.
I am still looking but here is a tid bit about playing baseball

Also a talented outfielder, Nixon said he has Frost’s blessing to try out for and play on the Husker baseball team as well. He won’t enroll early at NU so he can play on his high school team again next spring.

Saw he was trying to play... it just takes an extremely gifted athlete to excel at both in college. That's why I was curious his stats. Pelini gave his blessing one year to an absolutely awful baseball player, Hunter Dale, who hit .246 as a junior and it was really frustrating to see.

I'm sure this is a different situation tho.

I agree with you 100%

I have been able to find his schools web site and his baseball head coaches twitter deck etc. but no stats. May be tough to find but I will keep looking

Khiry Cooper comes to mind too. If I recall, he was drafted pretty high out of high school and then proceded to do absolutely nothing in either football or baseball here.

Lots of names/bodies, but not a ton of production outside of Spielman, Stoll, and Noa (at Cal). I'm sure some on the list will step up this year, but we could still use some difference-makers.
