NebraskaNebraska has added another commitment from a top prospect in the Phoenix area. This time it’s 6-foot-4, 310-pound guard Jaivorio Burkes, who said Tuesday he picked the Huskers.

Burkes turned down scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Michigan, Tennessee, Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado and a host of other schools.  His final two was Oklahoma and Nebraska and this time the Big Red won out over the Sooners!

He has a big frame and already 310 so with Kennedy’s work you can expect him to lose body fat and gain some muscle to the frame.

We just might get another player from Arizona if Multi-position prospect Prince Amukamara, the Arizona Republic player of the year in the state chooses the Huskers.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Baseball team will open the 2007 season ranked in the top 10 in at least one of the two major polls.

The Huskers are No. 9 in the Collegiate Baseball poll, which was released Friday.

In addition to the team honor, the Huskers placed two players on the Louisville Slugger All-America team. Pitcher Tony Watson is a second-team All-America selection and shortstop Ryan Wehrle is a third-team pick.

Watson, a left-hander from Grimes, Iowa, went 10-2 last season with a 2.78 ERA, striking out 69 and walking 24 in 1001/3 innings. Wehrle, a Papillion-La Vista product, batted .367 with eight home runs, 22 doubles, 48 RBIs and 14 stolen bases in 2006.

Stocked with four preseason All-Americans, Rice is Collegiate Baseball’s preseason No. 1. The Owls finished third in the College World Series in 2006, and they return seven position players and six pitchers.

NebraskaNebraska basketball coach Doc Sadler picked up two technical fouls and was booted from Friday night’s game with just over five minutes left in the first half. Probably just as well. He didn’t miss anything memorable. Hawaii jumped out to a big early lead, hammering the Huskers in the paint, and earned a berth in the Rainbow Classic final with an 81-72 victory before 4,537 at the Stan Sheriff Center.

NebraskaThe “Cowbell” keeps on ringing in Husker Land today as two more junior college players have comitted to the Nebraska Football team.  Shukree Barfield and Larry Asante have both committed and should be great additions to the Husker football team.

Barfiled is a defensive takle from Garden City Community College in Kansas.  He originally signed with Rutgers out of high school, and he chose the Huskers over them and additional offers from Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisville and South Florida. 

This season, Barfield had five and half sacks, and 41 tackles with eight being for a loss.

Asante is a great player that can play either linebacker or strong saftey.  Both positions that Huskers need some more depth at.  He is rated a 4 star by Rivals.Com and choose the Huskers over Clemson and Kansas State.  I would expect Asante to battle for a starting position right away.

NebraskaJunior Dan Hoch of Harlon, Iowa has decided to committ early to the Nebraska Football program.  Dan isn’t even 17 yet, but he is already 6’7 and 280 pounds!  He loves to play in the trenches and can’t wait to get started with the Nebraska program and coach Dennis Wagner.  Could Hoch be one of the fat nasties that we seen in the 1990′s?

Hoch picked the Huskers over Iowa State and Kansas State.  He said even if Iowa had offered down the road, he would be attending Nebraska.

NebraskaOn Sunday, the Nebraska Basketball team got a full dose of playing without center Aleks Maric.  In the morning shootaround, Maric’s balky left hip flared up again, leaving him limping noticeably.

With the 6-foot-11 junior and his 19.4 points and 7.4 rebounds on the bench, the Huskers went on to thump Alabama A&M 82-55 before 6,026 fans at the Devaney Center.

But Maric’s status for this week’s three-game Rainbow Classic in Honolulu remains unknown.

Nebraska coach Doc Sadler, before a question could be finished about how often he holds his breath on Maric’s health, blurted out, “Every day.”

“He has been practicing so well,” Sadler said. “It’s the first week that he had been practicing a whole practice, and I thought he had gotten into some better condition.

NebraskaWell a nice recruiting weekend for the Nebraska Football team after receiving three verbal committments from defensive players.  Joseph Townsend of Foothill (Calif.) College, tackle Terrence Moore of New Orleans and linebacker Austin Stafford of Hayward, Calif all committed to the Husker program after visiting campus this past weekend.

There is now a “dead period” where college coaches can’t contact recruits until Jan 4th so don’t expect anything big to happen until after the new year.

NebraskaPlaying in front of a record gathering of 17,209 in their home state, the No. 1 Huskers put together a 27-30, 30-26, 30-28, 30-27 victory over second-ranked Stanford to win their first NCAA title since 2000.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for this team,” said seventh year NU coach John Cook. “I think of any team at Nebraska, this might be one of the greatest seasons ever. This team definitely maxed out. The pressure they had to play through all season long – it’s just a tremendous accomplishment.”

Nebraska won it all behind an MVP performance from national player of the year Sarah Pavan. And Jordan Larson – who endured a horrific match when NU lost to Washington in last year’s NCAA final – bounced back with a fantastic showing against the Cardinal.
