    Maybe this is just payback for all the Husker fans who said he took money from UK. :oops:

    All the fans on the UK board are acting like he's gone.

    PSA - don't go over to their board and post. You make us look like those idiots from Iowa and UCF.

    Either way, one school is being strung along.

    I still think it’s him vs. his families plan, but it is feeling more like he’s holding onto 2 girlfriends, hoping one will leave him so he doesn’t have to choose.

    Also, with him talking to Stoops tonight, I would guess he’s either reaffirming or cutting loose this evening.

    Wandale had actually committed to the NU coaches a few weeks prior and then supposedly Wandale's "handler" called and talked to Frost the night before he committed and they had a disagreement about something. Some have speculated that it was because the handler wanted a guarantee on a starting spot at JD's position and some speculated it was money(Jim Rose). It was also speculated that Frost basically said, "I don't know who the "f" you are" when the handler called and that pissed him off. Not sure what went down, but Coach Walters and Coach Held have been on the phone with him 24/7 and have visited him in home weekly since in homes were allowed to smooth things over. Sounds like it is working.

    Looks like NU's check finally cleared.(I kid) Ha ha.

    I really don't think any money was promised or given to him or his family. I think it's possible that the advisor may have been promised something if he steered him to Lexington, but even that's just speculation based on 1) there being an "advisor", that's frequently an indication of something shady; 2) Vince being involved. It's possible that the advisor is an honest guy, but that whole Kentucky commitment just seemed weird.

    Assistants get one in home per week and the head coach gets one in home total. I believe that Stoops was in home with him right after the open visit period started. Nebraska is saving Frosts visit until last minute.

    One report says his family is not yet on board, as they want him closer to home. Frost will have to,win over his family on the home visit to get their blessing and his signature Dec 19th.

    I think I heard Clouse say that Wandale’s “advisor” was/is Rondale Moore’s “advisor”.

    It seems like however that this is usually a problem after the head coach has already visited. This time it sounds like we may have more of a chance to win the family over if the visit goes really well.

    How would we be getting played if he's committed to UK? We all know its a long shot to get him but Frost and Co. Believe he's worth it

    Not saying we are necessarily getting played by him. He’s not closing the door completely and that is allowing Wiltfong and other recruiting analysts create a buzz that in all honesty, probably doesn’t have any substance. Suckers like me are hitting the refresh button every 5 minutes when in reality is all for nothing.

    Like others have said already, what is he supposed to say? He’s committed to Kentucky, how would it look if he suddenly stopped peer recruiting?

    If he flips, the peer recruiting will stop, and not before then. He’s still Kentucky until Frost gives him a reason to switch. If he does.

    He seems to be telling everyone something different. The Kentucky Rivals guy says he's flipping to Nebraska, the local media in Lexington say he's 100% to Kentucky. Here he's telling USA Today that he's still entertaining Nebraska: https://usatodayhss.com/2018/4-star...-all-american-bowl-recruitment-still-not-over

    Of course the issue is that Wandale wants to play in Frost's offense but his parents want him to be close to home. That's the source of the tension. And the outside handlers may or may not have their own financial incentives to push.

    Just seems unlike Rowland to put that out there unless he has reason to believe it.

    If we get him, great! He’ll be an awesome addition to the team. If not, oh well, moving on and best of luck to him. At least he’s not going to the stinkin Herks.

    hmmm, jimmies getting rustled enough to dictate a CB change..... perhaps he's come to terms with his original choice and the events since then and is going to do his thing for him, at least he has had time to see and compare. I hope he ends up with the education he looks to pursue.

    Yeah. He won’t throw out a crystal ball pick for nothing. I assume it’s news he had after WR’s call with stoops tonight.
