It's official now. Newman (Louisiana) HS RB Kendall Bussey has flipped his commitment. It's kind of a shock actually.
To say that Mike Riley and the new staff tried would be an understatement. Riley visited, Ron Brown visited.. and in the end, it didn't matter.
On to the next one. Who should Nebraska target at Running Back? We have a few ideas...
Bradrick Shaw: Out of the MTV famous Hoover High in Alabama, Shaw isn't the worst kid you can get. He's a Vandy lean, but if Nebraska comes calling, he may take a visit and see what Lincoln has to offer.
Angelo Garbutt: The Oregon State verbal wouldn't be the worst thing to take for Running Back for Nebraska. The offer sheet is kind of light, but with some quality ingredients.
Chris Warren: This would be a flat out coup if Riley gets Warren. The kid is a stud and Texas and Alabama are battling for him. I mean, Riley and Gunderson have been aiming high... why not?
I wish I could give you more targets, but it's the dead period where Nebraska can't reach out too much. Things will be better after the bowl games.
But, for now, Nebraska has fallen down to the 39th ranked class by 247 National, while being ranked 5th in the Big Ten. It will get better.
