    What a disappointment we are still closing weak with anyone remotely close to being a good sackman. And no backup plan.

    How do you know there is no backup plan?

    Granted he's a juco transfer and not exactly the same player profile as Guy Thomas, but I wonder why Andrew Van Ginkel wasn't a bigger recruiting priority. He's going to play for a rival now.

    Exactly, and Wisconsin is already loaded with good edge rushers

    I think he was a pretty high priority.

    So we are sitting at #20 on Rivals this morning. Assuming GT is gone, where does that drop us to?

    He is worth 105 points since he is a 5.8 and not in the Rivals 250.

    That would drop us to 1633 points and 27th at this very moment.

    I know there is lot more that goes on that doesn't get reported, but I barely heard anything about his recruitment. I believe he visited unofficially over the summer and that's about all we heard. Nebraska was a finalist along with Iowa, but he choose to play at Wisconsin. For a kid that played his juco ball so close to Lincoln (and with John Parella's son no less), I would have thought we'd make a bigger splash especially concerning what a tremendous need we have at that position. I can't help but think we got beat here.

    Btw, have we ever signed a player out of Iowa Western?

    I think at the time we Porcher and Thomas committed, so that's probably why we didn't press harder

    or he told the coaches he was going to Wisconsin to play as a 3-4 OLB. A scheme that better fit his skills than playing 4-3 weakside DE at Nebraska.

    Nah. Couldn't be that

    Kid was basically the only JUCO we recruited besides Buggs (Bama commit). He liked Wisconsin better, probably for the 3-4 base. Tough noogies, as they say.

    Are you talking about Guy Thomas or one of the wideouts? Not sure about the KW tweet in this thread.

    He landed 3 DL, D Thomas, Watts, and Daniels....losing out on 1 guy whose been on the fence for 5 months isn't a concern to me and I doubt Riley is concerned either especially with the switch to the 3-4. No way Guy was gonna be a 3-4 DE. He'd have to put on 65 pounds to do that.

    If he signs here good.
    If he doesn't, who the hell names their kid Guy?
    That guy has to be tired just from turning his head every time he hears his name.

    Especially if there a lot of people around who don't speak English very well.

    What tea leaves are those? I haven't seen any late fees going out, especially on the DL.

    If he comes here he won't be a DE. He weighs 205 lbs for crying out loud he would be a Cat or Dog outside linebacker. So regardless he wouldn't be a Parella guy anymore anyway

    Another board saying Vrzal was reporting according to his source, Guy Thomas is N. I didn't listen to 1620 today though, so I can't independently verify.

    Well if it's true then let me be the first to say his size is of no concern, we wanted him all along, and I smell Lombardi Trophy.

    If it's not true, then the opposite of what I just said.

    Guy Thomas sounds like a true signing day decision recruit. We'll know soon enough what his decision is.

    Believe he is to announce at around 6 AM or a little after CST. It will be nice to know one way or another that early in the day.... I predict he will be the first fax to Lincoln.

    Nate Clouse was on 1620 and heard him on my way home. He thinks he sticks with Nebraska. Hope we can keep the two that are wavering and add a few more with hopes of landing a surprise tomorrow too.
