  1. Ed Chang

    Haven't heard anything yet. I'm guessing we'd know if he left the workout with an offer.
  2. Ed Chang

    FWIW, as far as I know Wingett's only offers since reclassifying are Iona, Illinois-Chicago and Delaware State. His best offer before that was South Dakota State.

    Nebraska is a lot more interested than Creighton. The Jays' "contact" was mostly a courtesy call. Creighton already has a similar yet better player signed in the class.
  4. Ed Chang

    They recruited him for 3 years then let him go to Washington is probably more accurate. It's not like Washington won a fierce recruiting battle for him.
  5. Ed Chang

    Shoot every time you touch the ball and not make enough of them. He's been the same player for three years.
  6. Ed Chang

    Staying at Papillion-La Vista wouldn't have affected his national ranking. That's based off AAU play and he was already trending down before his senior season.

    I think the writing was on the wall when he didn't sign during the first period. Washington recruited over him. Apparently Oklahoma State sees something, though. I think the Cowboys still have three scholarships to play with.
  8. Kenya Hunter

    Assistant coaches leaving are a different case than many of these, but when schools refuse to release kids it is usually written about by national writers and not in a favorable light. Forcing a kid to go somewhere he no longer wants to go or else face a stiff penalty is going to be held against your program, especially on the recruiting trail. If Xavier doesn't want to come to Nebraska any more, you let him go. If he does want to go to UConn, that just proves Kenya was the reason he signed with Nebraska in the first place. If Xavier tells Kenya he wants to follow him, is he supposed to say no? Saying yes doesn't make him a bad guy.

    I've posted a few times this month. Is there something in particular you'd like to hear form me?
  10. Current Husker Most Likely To Play In The NBA

    I don't see Palmer's game translating to the NBA. He has excellent size and length, but he's not particularly explosive and he's not nearly a consistent enough shooter from the perimeter. Add in that he can get to the rim whenever he wants but can't always finish, and I'm not sure what he does for you at that level. He doesn't look like a plus passer, rebounder or defender, so he has to be an efficient scorer and he's just not. Isaac Copeland isn't anywhere close from what I've seen. His tools aren't anything special at the NBA level and he has three years now of not being able to shoot after one year of shooting well at a lower volume. Isaiah Roby is the best bet based on his physical tools and potential skill set, but he has a ways to go. He's not really great at any one thing offensively. His shooting, ball-handling and ball-security all need significant improvement (although he's already done some of that). His defensive potential alone and solid-looking stroke should be enough to entice some NBA scouts down the road but he has the potential to be more for sure. As for running plays for him, if Roby could be a No. 1 option Miles would be doing just that. He's not there yet, both in skill level and in mind-set. He's still young. Give him time.
  11. Roby was 0-4 on dunks against Illinois

    Isaiah told me they measured his max vertical at 42" or 44", which is insane. Whether it's hand size or not, he has shown some issues holding onto the ball. Some of those turnover issues have to do with him fumbling the ball or not being able to hold on when another defender digs in. That will have to improve.
  12. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    Numbers I saw were 15, 14 and 10. They haven't posted their official box score on MaPreps yet but impressive either way. He did have five triple-doubles as a sophomore. Jimmy, he doesn't have stone hands by any means but they're not super great either. Average to a little above-average I'd say. Touch is a little iffy though.
  13. Rumour du jour: Possible Jordy Transfer

    Brady was 6'10.5" in shoes when we measured him this summer but his wingspan was only 6'9.5". He was 197 pounds at that point. Maybe he's put on some weight, but it's also hard to do so and keep it when you're in the middle of a season. I've watched him play since he was 15 years old and seen his development. I 100% think a redshirt season would be in his best interests. His shooting isn't close to refined enough for him to rely on that part of his game and his lack of length will hurt him as a shot-blocker at the next level despite his excellent instincts. He needs to get a lot stronger. Perhaps Jordy's struggles have something to do with having to be thrown into the fire right away despite probably not being ready. I'd rather not see Brady go through something similar.

    Here's the full quote on the small lineup: “Isaiah Roby is tremendous. I just don’t think it’s in his best interest or even Isaac Copeland’s to battle with the big guys like Dererk Pardon who’s an all-conference-type player and Isaac Haas who’s having all-conference-type numbers, to go in there and think he’s going to play them for 30 minutes and not foul and not get worn out or whatever. Now, certainly I’m going to get that lineup on the floor at important times.”

    Minor correction: I don't believe Haarms is a Kansas transfer; he was a post-grad recruit from Sunrise Christian Academy, which is in Kansas. He committed to the Boilermakers and joined the team for the second semester last year, using his redshirt. He's a more mobile big option than Haas and is a better defender.
