    Kid also loves attention on Twitter. He was just looking for clicks.

    We don't need any more of those attention seeking kids. They can all leave. Be here because you want to win not because you want followers.

    Seems like a good kid, would love to have him. Don’t fault him for looking around and will wish him well wherever he ends up.

    This is not what I've been told about this kid. From what I've heard he is the most level headed kid you will ever meet.

    if bookie wants to come here great, if he wants to go elsewhere that is fine also, if he doesn't want to buy into the program then let him go, pretty sure this staff has the shit together to overcome and adapt.

    So he'd want to play for shitty coaches on a losing team but wouldn't want to play for one of the hottest coaching staffs in CFB? That makes sense to me.

    Which is absolutely ridiculous....recruiting is important but it's not all about stars and there are too many DB's focused on the stars...

    That tune will change. Guaranteed. Banks will be labeled a "good kid" and "smart".

    He may be level headed, but judging by his Twitter, he loves the clicks. He knows by tweeting Frost, Husker nation is going to react.

    We aren’t even in Bookies new top 5.... Oklahoma, Clemson, Florida, USC, UCLA. He didn’t want to play at Nebraska, he committed to Riley and that’s fine. Best of luck to the young man where ever he lands.

    All these twitterers grovelling at the feet of players who are so full of shit....and themselves. They were never committed to the N on the helmet, their future teammates, the University, or the very fans worshipping them. They were committed to a suitcase coach, living in a hotel, driving a car with Oregon plates...hell, the coach was even 100% committed.

    I was not talking about that tweet I had heard somewhere that was his new top 5. Perhaps that was where it was heard from however? I should have not said anything if I wasn’t sure just figured it was true... you know what happens when you assume though.

    Damn. You sound angry.

    Let it all out. Frosty is aboard. Breath in a deep one......, and when you feel OK, just breath naturally.

    He de- committed while Riley was still coach. He could see that MR staff was not going to be a winning program. He moved on and so should we.

    Yep, this is why I laugh when some say he would still be committed if Riley was the coach. He de-committed when Riley was the coach, when Riley needed him the most he de-committed, and rightfully so. He is a smart kid and looking at our defense I have no doubt that he decided he did not want to play here for Riley.

    Last I knew, he was free to make whatever decision he thinks is best for him. I am guessing there are many "adults" on this board who have agonized over a major decisions and picking a college may be one of them


    What I don't get is all the negative name calling, petty bitterness, and crazy remarks. Who looks more immature when that happens? The 18 year old or the adults in the room?

    It's his wife's car and their main domicile has always been in Oregon. That car was operated primarily in the state of Oregon therefore by law it needed to be licensed in Oregon. People wondered why he rode a bike to work? His wife's car was in his garage in Oregon. I have a friend who has a leased Navigator sitting in the garage of his house on Omaha Country Club and a leased Escalade sitting in his driveway in the state he actually lives in most of the time. People do have multiple cars licensed in multiple states.

    Rest assured, Frost's car does NOT have Oregon plates.

    The narrative of the attention seeking, disloyal recruit whose character flaws kept him from choosing NU while we simultaneously conclude his moral fiber wasn't good enough for our school anyway, is getting really old. We've seen it a million times.

    Bet right now it has Florida plates. It sounds to me that he will retain the Florida residence, so he will probably have a car licensed in Florida. Former ISU Dan McCarney had a residence in Florida while coaching in Iowa. I guess when you make $5M, you can have the luxury of owning multiple homes in multiple states with cars licensed in multiple states.

    He also saw what everybody else in America saw, that Riley was not going to be retained. As someone else said, he’s a smart kid.

    cmon man. It's just the way lots of kids communicate now. I would welcome him to NU in a heartbeat and I can almost guarantee you he is going to be a great teammate no matter where he ends up.

    This thread could and should go down as one of the most useless threads in HOL history. Let this kid be and worry about kids that are coming on board.
