    247 has predictions for the following uncommitted guys:
    Michael Onyemaobi 100% NU
    Damion Daniels 91% NU
    Kurt Rafdal 92% NU
    Isaiah Johnson 100% NU

    These four guys get us to a class of 21. Those guys would get us to an estimated rivals ranking of 20-22.

    Blades and Calvin put this class inside the top 20.

    Few things...

    1. Isaiah Johnson is only happening if we don't get Damion Daniels

    2. We will know more about Rafdal after we find out where Robinson chooses to go. If he chooses Nebraska we don't get Rafdal. If he chooses Memphis or Central Michigan we most likely have Rafdal. If he chooses ASU we could be in trouble and get neither.

    3. I personally think we have a very good shot with Blades and Lenoir. If we get them I don't believe Onyemaobi will be coming to Nebraska

    My predictions change by the day... Right now I feel our class is going finish with the following 6 with an outside shot at Lewis and Johnson

    Daniels
    Rafdal
    Lenoir
    Blades
    Verdell
    Thompson

    If you would of asked me on Saturday it would of looked like this

    Daniels
    Rafdal or Robinson
    Calvin
    Onyemaobi
    Blades

    I do not believe we are currently recruiting Johnson. These are the remaining targets that I know of.

    WR (1-2):
    Lewis
    Calvin
    Thompson
    Hawkins

    RB (0-1):
    Verdell or bust

    TE: (1)
    Rafdal
    Robinson

    DT: (1)
    Danniels or bust

    DB: (1-2)
    Johnson
    Blades
    Lenoir
    Oneymaobi
    Wallace

    Of course you will go over or take more at a position for guys like: Johnson, Lewis, Blades and Lenoir.

    Anyone I'm missing?

    Has there been anything indicating Radfal is looking at what Robinson does? Robinson is being recruited as a big WR and/or TE. Just because he wants N, doesn't mean he'll play Radfals position.

    And if Radfal was really worried, he could commit before Robinson does, which is another 3 days.

    Robinson seems kinda flakey at the moment, he moved his commit date up before his visit with us, so I would assume we are out atm.

    Onyemaobi recently got a crystal ball for TCU. In looking at his predictions, there is one non Homer and he's picking us though.

    I tried picking our recruits last year and failed miserably. I like reading the predictions, but I'll sit this one out.

    I saw an article that said he really liked his TCU visit and it was a tossup between TCU and Nebraska. With Nebraska getting the last visit, you have to like our chances. Unfortunately, the exact opposite is going on with Lewis and Johnson as they both say Nebraska and USC are tied and they are headed to USC this weekend.

    I think these guys are in:

    I think it's looking good for Daniels, Rafdal, Calvin, Blades, and Thompson. Those 5 would put us at 22.

    I don't know if he's cancelled or what, but I don't see how he visits if he's committing on the 25th.

    He's either really N, or writing us off.

    Anyone know who this "Athlete" locking in an official visit this weekend is? It's on 247 Sports but it's VIP...

    I miss the Pelini years where there was no pins and needles drama at this time of year. Just that sinking feeling and a general sense of blah.

    I miss convincing myself that they were just 'under the radar' or 'diamonds in the rough.' The cognitive dissonance was fun.

    You got issues if you're bringing up old coaches in a thread about this years recruiting (especially a couple years in on the current coach)...

    Excited to see the finish of this class. GBR

    Are we still in on Nick Robinson? The Omaha World Herald Recruiting Big Board has removed his name as a target but he is also not listed as one that got away...

    http://dataomaha.com/huskers/class/2017/bigboard

    Oversight by them or no longer interested?

    Robinson is announcing tomorrow and didn't visit Nebraska. Guessing he is going elsewhere probably not a huge stretch

    Mora the used car dealer at it again. Guy should go into politics, he is good at convincing people that he can turn dog$hit into gold.

    Probably a good decision for Harley. We have slot of other WR on the board with only one or two spots left.

    I like Thompson a lot... I think Rivals has his ranking right. ESPN is smoking crack on where they have him

    I think we get:

    Rafdal at TE
    Jamire Calvin at WR
    Thompson at WR
    Daniels at NG
    Elijah Blades at CB

    We still have a shot at Greg Johnson too!

    I would be happy with that finish,if we keep Guy Thomas too, but I'm not so sure about Blades. What about Michael O?

    I was wondering why the map of where the coaches were going each day just stopped being updated daily... I could believe this to be true.

    Although DW tweeted about going to 4 cities in one day last night.
