Nebraska NewsGood afternoon Husker fans! I haven’t had a lot of time to blog this week but thought I would throw something up now before I leave for a weekend get away to Denver. All in all it has been a pretty good week for Husker athletics with the football camps going on, football commitments, the baseball draft and Tom Osborne staying on indefinitely as athletic director.

I’ll kick things off with the big news of Osborne saying on as athletic directory indefinitely.  Originally, the agreement between Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman and Osborne stated that Osborne would serve as athletic director until June, 2010. This is big news for Husker athletics as he has really got things going in the right direction. We will just have to remember at some point, Osborne will have to step away from the University and a successor will be hired. I expect that to happen in the next three to five years.

The football camp has been going on at the University with players from all around the country attending. The economic crisis has limited some players that would have normally attended but all reports I have read have been good about the camp. The Huskers even picked up their first commitment for the 2011 class as instate prospect Ryne Reeves from Crete gave his verbal commitment after being offered by the coaching staff. Reeves could be a great player for the Huskers in the future!

The Major League Draft has also been going on this week. Even though the Husker baseball team didnt’ have the season that they wanted, they have seen some players get drafted so far. So far Mike Nesseth (10th round – Angels), Jeff Tezak (24th round – White Sox) and Adam Bailey (38th round – Yankees) have been drafted.

I hope everyone has a good weekend and we hear more football recruiting news soon!
