NebraskaOut of highschool, Ricky Henry from Omaha Burke choose the Nebraska Cornhuskers as the team he wanted to play for.  Well bad grades hurt his chances of actually making it into UNL after his senior year of highschool so he went to North Dakota State College of Science where he played last season and got his grades up.  Henry does have one more year left at North Dakota State College of Science and then he will be on his way to Lincoln as long as his grades stay up.

He will have three years to play two.  It doesn’t look like the Huskers will take another offensive linemen in this recruiting class.  They were wanting to pick up a center, and that is the poisition that Henry more then likely will start out at.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team got verbal committments from a junior college linebacker and a highschool linebacker from Ohio over the weekend.

Shaun Mohler is the junior college linebacker from Orange Coast Community College in California.  He originally comitted to Cal six weeks ago but then said he was open and taking a visit to Nebraska.  He loved the facilities and the opportunity to come in and play right away.  Mohler will have three years to complete two years of eligibility. He’s on schedule to graduate from Orange Coast in May, he said.

The highschool linebacker to commit is Doug Rippy from Columbus Ohio.  He is 6-2 and 218 lbs right now and is a pretty dominate linebacker.  Ohio State fans say they would have been offering him a scholarship except they are on a really low scholarship limit for this recruiting class.  Time will tell if this is a steal for the Huskers!

NebraskaFreshman guard Mike Smith has decided to transfer away from the Nebraska Basketball team and attend a Junior College back in New York.  Smith is originally from the Bronx so the move could do him well.  He more then likely wasn’t going to get much playing time and that is what he needs to develope into a better player.

We wish Mike Smith all the best in the future with school and and basketball.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team picked up its 5th commit from the state of Nebraska today as Crete star John Levorson didn’t wait long to accept a scholarship offer after hearing he was being offered around noon today.

Levorson accumulated nearly 1,800 yards of total offense and earned first-team All-Nebraska honors by The World-Herald as a defensive back. He was the honorary captain of the Class B all-state team and also starred in track and field, running the 100-meter dash in 10.8 seconds and clearing 6 feet, 5 inches in the high jump.

Levorson is expected to start out as a saftey project but could also see some time in the linebacker position or wide receiver depending on how how he puts on weight and muscle in Dave Kennedy’s program.  Either way, a redshirt will be happening his first year so he can get quicker and stronger.

Welcome to the Husker Family Mr. Levorson!

NebraskaThere were a couple of changes to the Nebraska Baseball coaching staff yesterday.

First off, hitting coach and former Husker catcher Andy Sawyers has decided to resign from his hitting coach and recruiting coordinator job to pursue other jobs in the Midwest and did not rule out coaching baseball, but did mention of a job outside of baseball that he was interested in.  Coach Anderson will now take over as hitting coach along with being head coach.

The other move which is actually the bigger move in my mind is that Dave Bingham will not be the pitching coach for the Huskers next year.  He will be more of an assistant coach to Anderson and help out in all areas.

NebraskaA great in-state prospect has verbally committed to the Nebraska Football team.  Sean Fisher a hard hitting linebacker / safety from Millard North traveled to Lincoln yesterday afternoon to watch some film and he decided to go ahead and verbally committ while he was there.

His final two choices were either Nebraska or Oklahoma and he decided to go ahead and stay in the state of Nebraska to play college football.  Fisher mentioned there were two things he liked about Nebraska.  Lincoln being close so his family can come watch all the games, and that Nebraska is losing four linebackers after this next season so he thinks he can get some early playing time.  I would be suprised if he ends up redshirting just so he can add some more muscle to his frame.

Welcome to the Husker family Sean!

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team is losing on of their defensive backs today as Corey Young has decided to leave the team and head out of state to continue playing football.  He said his reasoning is nothing against the program, he just preferred to get out of the state and continue playing.

Could he be headed to Iowa where three former Millard North players are currently on the roster?  He didn’t say yes or no, other then his former highschool coach will be placing some calls to schools for him.

Young did play in 11 games for the Huskers last year.  Mostly on special teams so he will be missed in that part of the game for sure.

NebraskaThe Huskers once again have went out to the JUCO ranks and got a committment from one of the highly rated wide receivers.  Adrian Hilburn from City College of San Francisco verbally committed today and says he plans on taking his official visit whenever his bye week is with City College of San Francisco.  He played with Zac Lee there and says that is one of the big reasons why he choose Nebraska.

One nice thing is he will graduate with his AA Degree in Decemeber, and that means he will be able to enroll early at Nebraska and take part in spring practices.

NebraskaThree more players from the Nebraska Baseball team were drafted in the 2007 MLB Draft today.

Matt Foust and Tony Watson were both picked by the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Foust in the sixth round and Watson in the ninth round.  They are both excited about starting out in the minor leagues with each other.  Should help them with the nerves and everything else that goes along with the minor leagues.

Luke Wertz was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 13th round.

Good luck to you all as you will soon be starting a new baseball career!
