Two pieces of transactions today on the Nebraska recruiting trail today. First, something that was completely expected and just a matter of time:
I can confirm that Jason Hall has decommitted from the #Huskers. @SBNRecruiting— Brian Towle (@btbowling) July 5, 2013
Since we live in the same city, I asked Hall myself about the de commitment and he confirmed it. It was just a matter of time till Hall let go of the Husker verbal, as once Oklahoma and Texas offers came, it wasn't a matter of if.
Look for Hall to get on board with the Longhorns come NSD.
However, the Huskers did get one verbal this evening to keep it even at 11:
#Nebraska nabs commitment from Larenzo Stewart from Spring (Texas) Klein Oak. Stewart has 4.36/40 speed. #Huskers— Bryan Munson (@BigRedBryan) July 6, 2013
Larenzo Stewart, from the Houston area, is a Running Back with a few offers from different local schools. Interesting that he happened to take the one farthest away from Southeast Texas. Looks like a lot of people thought he would be going to Baylor, so this again is a surprise. (Notice when the guys who picked Nebraska voted. THAT'S CHEATING!!)
4.36 40 is fast though. Kenzo Cotton is fast too, where's his off... wait, stay on task here.
One would think this could, quite possibly, be a Hall situation where once he gets more offers, he'll stay closer to home. Then again, maybe not.
This does keep the count at 11, which again is roughly half of what you should expect Nebraska to sign on National Signing Day.
The day's activities brings Nebraska down to roughly 40-ish in the National Rankings by both Rivals and 247 (they don't get recalculated till the morning) and approximately 8th in the B1G in each listing also.
