    Things are definitely slow here today, I figured this would have had a bunch of likes and posts. Dudes a nice OLB prospect with some good size at 6’4 and he’s got some good speed, exactly what you need for an OLB. GBR

    I think it's what they are looking for in OLB's. Butler and Patyon are similar size.

    Does he thrive on violent head-on collisions?

    He reminds me a little bit of Sean Fisher.

    If memory serves...he was 6'6"??? I remember a quote from his high school coach about Stoops...and Stoopsy asked "Is he really 6'6""??? Or however tall he measured out to be.

    And does he thrive on running behind the person with the ball?

    This is always one of my favorite descriptions for a player:
    from Clouse- “ He plays with a great motor and a lot of enthusiasm.”

    Good question, not sure, but that's more easily developed than speed, quickness, and athleticism.

    Funny I was thinking something similar, but plenty of talented guys still get that description.
    Kid has a solid enough offer list for a tweener type who may not fit in all systems.

    Nebraska pretty serious about upgrading LB's. New coach and 4 verbals this year and 5 in 2020 class. Looks like 2 standards being applied so far...
    1) Upgrade speed inside
    2) Length on the outside

    Really like the pickup! Like when the offers match the scheme when looking at prospects for a 3-4 D in the front 7. When Cal has offered and being from Cali, that gives me a good feeling that he fits well for that OLB position.

    It's a recurring joke of mine when anyone compares a new white player to an old white player, often regardless of actual skills and athletic ability ("here's a tall white LB, he reminds me of the last tall white LB we had"). I find it funny, don't really care if anyone else does. Don't take offence.

    Second coming of Stewart Bradley would be a grand slam signing. That guy was a straight up dude.

    Ok ladies, we are up to 5 Crystal Balls for Latrell Neville. We got 3 more today (one Husker, one Texas Am, and one Texas insider) and things are looking very good for our Huskers with this 6’4 190 pound 4 star WR from Texas. GBR

    He’s making his decision July 4 and the way it’s edging right now, it appears our Husker will get its first 4 star WR this recruiting class.

    California vs South Dakota = not very comparable.
    But let’s just hope he’s fast.
