    Nebraska nose dived to end the season. It's no surprise that Calvin chose a different school.

    Go away troll. Anybody with a lick of sense knows we didn't have the depth at QB to compensate for injuries to our top 2 QBs. I highly doubt that figured in to his final decision. The QB depth chart looks a whole bunch different for spring ball.

    He doesn't seem to worried about the quality of program, just look at his choice....

    It's possible, but Nebraska completely fell apart and had zero momentum to end the season. That kind of stuff does make a difference with recruits.

    That had zero impact on his decision.

    Why would Calvin choose Oregon St then? They had a cappy season and weren't even in Calvin's top 4 in early December....

    Troll? Also, you should say trolls when referring to multiple posters.

    Nevertheless, I would be willing to bet you said the same thing last season. And the season before. I'm also willing to bet you trashed armstrong most of the season (at least the part of the season where we started getting blown out). And defending Fyfe, successfully, would be worthy if a Pulitzer.

    OSU had the benefit of being closer to home and being on the West Coast. When NU went down in flames to end the year maybe that was enough to give them the edge over the Huskers.

    The kid stayed where his relatives could reasonably attend a few games each year.

    Yes, that's why he picked the team that won 4 games.

    I would agree if Oregon St was in his top 4 at the beginning of December.

    Recruits and their families are increasingly seeing themselves as assets. And why shouldn't they? Everyone is making money in big time college football. I agree that we need to start playing the game.

    You know Archie, the more I think about it, the more I am coming around to your view that there is something very, very fishy about his OSU pick. OSU is a terrible team and a terrible program. They are recruiting tons and tons of wide receivers so there is stiff competition. Yes it is in the Pac12 with a few road games in LA, but it isn't as if Corvallis is that much closer than Lincoln to mom and dad. His position coach at OSU will be brand new and untested. The QB's he would have been playing with at NU will be much better than the QB's at OSU. He made it known in various ways that he was an NU guy all the way up until Friday. His only public explanation for his change is that he had "a change of heart". Well duh.... Finally, he did not appear happy with, or enthusiastic about, his OSU pick on TV.
    Yep... this thing stinks all over.
    But... life goes on. Next man up and all that stuff....

    Not to mention OSU wasn't even in his Top 4 last week, they were 116 in the nation in passing last year, they have 7 WR's commits and no position coach.

    Yes.. good addition to my list... OSU was not even in his top 4 last week. So you go from being totally out of the top 4 to top of the list in one week, due simply to a "change of heart"?? I am not buying it.

    Geez... so now we are recruiting against God?
    Not even TrueHuskerfan can put a positive spin on our odds of winning that contest. Winking

    Yes, and we beat you 15-7 two days before, so series split.
    Beavers are picked by Baseball America to be in Omaha for the CWS.
    Our last three recruiting classes have all been ranked in the top 12.
    Should be a great trip, if anyone is going, Don and Charlies in Scottsdale is a must for any baseball fan. I'll buy a drink for the first Nebraska fan I see in the bar.

    Yes sir. But you're right in with the next man up comment. Evern if he came back in the fold before signing day I dont think you could trust him at all. Bye. Have fun at OSU.

    I hope not. That type of kid would probably transfer at the drop of a hat anyway. Go after some of those other wideouts on their boardm

    They are going after several others as well. Also stated they've been working on USC commit Randal Grimes for a visit.

    So here's what some Nebraska fans have come to.

    - Nebraska loses a top recruit because of money.
    - Nebraska lands a top recruit because of the coaches ability to recruit (or whatever).

    You guys are telling me ______ unofficially visited Nebraska on his own dime? No outside help, whatsoever?!? His 7-on-7 coaches dropped their own money to see Nebraska? Come on man. I don't think this is a can of worms Husker fans want to open on a forum like Rivals, 247, Scout, or anywhere else that is accessible to the public, and that includes the scouting services paid sites.

    He has it backwards.

    Yah, sorry I should have read more closely. "Calvin and Nebraska have already been in contact since Saturday."

    He didn't say who contacted who, that was my summary error.

    The same Pernell that said "we wouldn't take a lower ranked RB"? Regardless, I'm not interested in what that guy has to say, maybe others are.

    Oregon State now has 8 WR commits. How can you have that many receivers in one class?

    Turns out the reason he was crying was because his dad couldn't make the ceremony because he was stuck in the Florida airport because of the shooting. He felt it was his biggest day in football and his dad couldn't share it with him, apologies accepted.
