    Bryce, Wilcher, Keon, WB, and Nets is an incredible group of Freshman this fall. Jury is always out till we see what they have on the court but I think Matt is living up to his reputation at least going by rankings.

    Nebrasketballer reacted to Norm Peterson in Keon Edwards is N   
    When he reclassified from the 2021 class to enroll early at DePaul, he was dropped from the Rivals and ESPN rankings. He still carries a rating score from ESPN, though, of 86.  In the 2021 class, of which he was a member, that would place him somewhere between 34th and 47th on the ESPN top 100.
     
    Robin says he climbed as high as top 25 and a 5-star for Rivals, but I'm not sure he held that ranking when he reclassified. Still, outstanding player and a huge recruiting coup for us. He had some big boys involved in his recruitment, including FSU, Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Arizona St. all in the mix.

    I would say, with this commitment, that you can basically guarantee Thor and Shamiel are gone.

    Fred. Is. That. Dude.
     
    This kid can play the 1-3 IMO and will end up being a very valuable defender.  
     
    I’m caring less about the true PG thing with every 6’7” SG who signs up.  Good grief we’re going to be better and basically every kid we’ve signed can shoot AND initiate the offense.

    Holy crap...i pause for a second and bam...another top level prospect.  Goodness!!!  Great job coaches.  
     
    We have ourselves some position battles.
     
    And oh yeah, check out his various shoes and the variety of colors.  He will fit right in.

    When they were coming out of high school, Trey was listed by Rivals as a PG and the #83 player in the class of 2017.
     
    Dalano Banton was listed as a SG and the #80 player in that same class.
     
    While Kobe shot better to end the season, I'm not sure he has quite the firepower to stay ahead of Keisei. And Banton kicking to Keisei in the corner could result in a lot of treys.
     
    I see that 2nd string looking more like Dalano (or Trey) at point with Keisei at the off-guard and probably Edwards at wing.
     
    Still, a strong group of players. Two strong groups.

    Keon Edwards was a 2021 recruit. But he decided to enroll early at DePaul and reclassify to the 2020 class. I'm not sure that he had a Rivals rank after he reclassified. If you look at his rating on ESPN, though, it would put him in the top 50.
     
    So, for 2021, we have 4 players that are or would have been among the top 100 players in the ESPN rankings for the class of 2021.
     
    We have the horses to compete at the level of teams in the upper half of this conference. Granted, they'll still be young, so, if not this year, then certainly next.
     
    It's all on the coaches now. Ain't no excuse to finish in the bottom 1/3 of the league with this crew. Probably no excuse to finish in the bottom half.

    I know we're fine with not filling our scholarships I think we'd take both of those guys.  Not sure if Edwards commits if TGF does though.

    Feels like the same level of kid we were looking at with Kansas transfer TGF but is a Fr. instead of a Jr.

    Let this sink in, we have 2 to play 4 year top 150 transfers.  A very promising top 200 7 ft center, a top 5 judo player a top 25 player and another top 100 player all in same class...pinch me I’m dreaming.

    I think you'll see Bryce start because he'll be too much of a combination of skill and readiness not to start him.

    Robin generally just passes along information that someone on the staff tells him. Of course, the players will compete for starting spots and playing time and will have to earn it.
