NebraskaJunior running back Marlon Lucky came out and officially said that he will be back for his Senior season next year.  This is a great decision for Lucky in our opinion.  There were so many good running backs that entered the upcoming draft, that there was no way he would be a first or second round draft pick.  Spending one more year in the program, getting stronger and faster will only help to be drafted higher in a littler over a year.

Lucky said he is excited to play for Coach Pelini and thinks they will do great under the new coaching staff.  I would expect to see Lucky have a monster year in 2008!

NebraskaJosh Williams, a defensive end from Texas had commited to the Nebraska Cornhuskers earlier in the recruiting process and then de-commited once the coaching staff changes were made.  Well now after taking another visit to Lincoln this past weekend and talking with the new coaching staff, Williams has decided to commit back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers!

Williams mentioned that he always liked Lincoln and the school and always wanted to be there but with the coaching staff change he had to look at other options and that is why he commited to Colorado a few weeks back.  He says he is done with recruiting and is glad that it is over.

Welcome aboard Mr. Williams!  GO BIG RED!

NebraskaOmaha Westside running back Collins Okafor who verbally commited to the old Husker coaching staff has once again verbally commited to the Huskers.  Okafor was strongly considering going out to Stanford to play and get a great education, but has decided on the Huskers.  Word is that the Stanford coaches were at Westide this morning to get one last word in with him, but that couldn’t even get him to switch!

Welcome aboard Collins, can’t wait to see you in a Husker uniform!  GO BIG RED!

NebraskaDan Hoch who has been a Nebraska commit for over a year has decided to switch his commitment to the Missouri Tigers and follow the path of other ex Husker commits.  While it is a tough pill to swallow losing Hoch, the Huskers did replace his scholarship with another offensive line prospect out of the state of Texas.

David Grant of Killen, Texas accepted a scholarship offer by the Huskers today.  Grant measures in at 6’6 and 280 lbs right now.  Grant was an Oklahoma State commit first off, and then an Iowa State commit before saying yes to the Huskers.

NebraskaAnother Ohio guy is coming to the Nebraska coaching staff.  Tim Beck was announced as the running backs coach today at the University of Nebraska.  Beck has been the wide receivers coach at Kansas the past three seasons. 

Beck also went to the same highschool that Coach Pelini did in Ohio.

What do you think of the hire?  Beck seem like a good fit?  Can he recruit the top notch athletes that Nebraska needs?  Time will tell…

NebraskaKody Spano once was an Oklahoma State recruit, but after de-commiting (wow we have been saying that a lot), and taking a visit to Lincoln this past weekend, he has said yes to the Nebraska Cornhuskers scholarship offer.

One thing that is really nice about Spano joining the Huskers is that he graduated in December from highschool.  Graduating early will allow him to enroll at Lincoln next week and begin classes for the spring semester.  It also means that he will be able to take part in spring ball which will be huge for him.

One other thing nice about picking up Spano is that his dad is an assistant high school football coach in Texas.  Any time you can get the inside track on some players from Texas it will help out in recruiting.  Hopefully Kody enjoys his time in Lincoln, and we can possibly get more players from the same area that Kody came from!
