    We were recruiting both, and were willing to take both, a long time ago. I don't think we're in a position to be overly and picky and choosy over which format these elite receivers come in. Might have to get a big guy next year.

    Well its the dead period so it'd have to be by phone or text, maybe Facetime. From Tim's post, it appears Calvin initiated.

    I believe he is a composite 5 * on 247.

    Looks like he dropped from a 99 5-star to a 98 4-star, after his knee injury. Still, a 5-star talent, no doubt.

    I'm thinking the staff has been in a few guy's ears since this weekend. That's good. We need to close out this class in a strong way.

    This is interesting news. I am not going to get too worked up yet. We have been burned too many times before in these situations but it does seem promising. Winking

    Anyone know who else he's favoring? Oregon, USC?

    Edit: As I see it there 15/16 Crystal Balls for NU since early this AM.

    He got in touch with the staff after the AAA Game.

    It is my understanding that after Lindsey the staff will definitely take one more WR but would take two if they are the "right" ones...Hawkins, Holmes, Thompson, and yes, Calvin still in play (all are very fluid right now). Which ones the coaches consider must take, no idea.

    Because of my hype of Darnay Holmes only to look like an idiot afterwards. I am going to temper my emotion toward this one. To your question supposedly Riley will have an inhome with him after the dead period is over, and we are "Supposedly" the only player in this

    Imo it's going to be hard for a new positon coach to separate Williams and Lindsey

    They might, but it appears as of now to be a straight flip to NU at Riley's in home Friday.

    I might have misspoke here. I'm forgetting about Bryan Thompson who is a bigger body and still has his visit here. Another top choice as well.

    The connection with KW is too strong to overcome in this one. Coach Dubb really busted his butt this year and never gave up. Let's see what happens

    Tyjon tore his meniscus in his right knee.

    He was a 4-5 star depending on which service and when you referenced said service. Regardless, he is a top WR recruit nationally.

    Bookie is indeed his cousin and Bookie has transferred to IMG Academy in Florida and is a top 10 CB recruit.

    "Ideal/perfect" scenario would be landing Lindsey and Lewis. Having a slot receiver of Lindsey's caliber and then a 6'2" WR of Lewis' caliber and bolstered with Keyshawn and McQuitty. It would be a very formidable WR group.


    I would just like to know the reason behind the decommitment. Is he not liking the new OC? Martel and him get in a quarrel? Nebraska always weighing in the back of his mind?
    His last visit here he looked very unenthusiastic in the videos and even seemed irritated by KW touching his shoulders. Was that him perhaps trying to convince himself that he didn't like it here and that tOSU is better of the two (despite deep down feeling differently)?

    I think it was at the FNL (which I did not attend) but in video he didn't look happy and his mood during that trip was brought a lot afterwards.

    He was wearing a Calibraska shirt and having a good time before the camp. I think he was pretty pumped up to compete and that was just his game face.

    Maybe that is his "all business" face/game face and KW was trying to get him to smile?

    He looked very impressive in that video though!

    We have at least 7 spots left open; I think we'll take two more WR's depending on who wants in, and Lindsey would be at the top of our list. The thing is though, taking him and Calvin means we grab two slot guys in one class. McQuitty is not quite 6 feet tall, and Johnson is 6'1", sooo is that enough to cover all receiver positions? Just curious.

    The still image of that video is pretty hilarious; Coach Dub looks like he's about to cackle.

    Oh and remember, we're also slated to land the gigantic Kurt Rafdal at TE. My feeling is whoever our QB is in 2 years is going to have a wealth of options to choose from.

    I also believe he was in his game zone. Just trying to show off his abilities. His speed has to have KW drooling.

    IMO we'll be in it right up until NSD with Lindsey. As for the FNL video, it could have been his game face, it could have been OSU WR coach Zach Smith was in his ear negative-recruiting against Nebraska... who knows. Now that he decommitted, N needs to lock in on signing this kid. Even though bleacher report did not have Nebraska in his final 4 when he committed to OSU in December, he was quoted saying it was really between OSU and Nebraska. Nebraska needs this kid. He has a pep in his step that not many players do not have.

    I would hope everyone feels this way after AAA. No sure things in recruiting, and crystal balls seem to have a "reverse psychology" effect on some of these youngsters that want to do something unexpected. Sit back and hope for the best, but shouldn't start saying they are "N" until papers signed. Travis Lewis from OU says hello. That one hurt

    Adding players like Lindsey could really help speed up the transition to what Coach Riley wants to run on offense. This would be a fantastic flip, hope they can close him! Easiest way to shut up the naysayers is to win and successfully land big time players like this.

    It's not a hint either way but based on the meltdown Saturday on here when Calvin picked Oregon Stank. This is one of the weirdest recruiting cycles that I can remember.

    One website listed him at 5' 11" in April of 2015. (Would have linked but the website brought up a virus popup after fully loading and I don't want anyone to click on it.)

    This 247 website has him listed at 5' 11-1/2".

    An ESPN website has him listed at 6' 0".

    An dataomaha.com website has his listed at 6' 0" on the left side of the screen, but the second sentence in the article says he is 6' 2".

    This CFN Scout website lists him at 6' 2".

    Makes me wonder if he has been growing since a couple years ago or if he is 5' 11-1/2" and his high school roster fudged his height a little and some sites ran with it to claim he is 6' 2".

    It would probably be a shock if he doesn't sign with Nebraska at this point. It was always Nebraska/Ohio St and nobody else.

    If another team wants to sign him they have 3 weeks to get even close to the relationship he has with keith Williams

    I think this injury is why he dropped to a 4* on rivals but it's not a big deal meniscus tear that he is choosing to get repaired as opposed to removed make for a much longer rehab than the 1-2 weeks for the removal but the injury itself is not anywhere near as serious as am ACL etc. My daughter had it done and the rehab was slow to start but once it started it went quick with no ill affects

    I think he tweeted that he plans to run track this year, so I'm not too worried about the knee injury.
