NebraskaIt appears that Nebraska head coach Doc Sadler has finally got a recruit to come to the Univesity of Nebraska and play basketball.  Eshaunte Jones a 6-foot-4 guard who spent last season at Hargrave Military in Virginia, will enroll at Nebraska at the end of the summer, according to his travel team coach Eric Vaughn.

After the whole Roburt Sallie incident (who has now signed with Memphis) Coach Sadler really needed to get sign a player for the upcoming season and it looks like Jones is that man.  Jones has said that he got along well with the coaching staff when he visited and he really liked Lincoln.

Kentucky, Pittsburgh, and Baylor were also rumored to be in the hunt for Jones.

NebraskaNebraska football and baseball recruit Khiry Cooper as most people know was drafted last week in the 5th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Los Angeles Angels.  Cooper is still unsure if he will sign with the Angels or stay in Lincoln and be part of the Huskers.

Right now Cooper is in Lincoln but has dropped his summer classes that he had planned on taking.  Once a player is enrolled in a division one school, he would not be able to be drafted once again until after their junior season.  Right now it is a waiting game between Cooper and the Angels.

Cooper has to decide if $125,000-$150,000 is a big enough signing bonus to pull him away from Nebraska.  He has said that he hopes to have a decision in the next week or so.

So what do you think? Will Cooper be a Husker or an Angel?

NebraskaNebraska tight end Hunter Teafatiller was charged with DUI early Monday morning as he was stopped near 11th and Cornhusker Streets in Lincoln.  Teafatiller’s blew a .2 which is more then twice the legal limit.

Head coach Bo Pelini has talked with Tafatiller about his problem and made him aware of the internal discipline he will face throughout the summer. Further discipline regarding Hunter’s playing status for the 2008 season will be determined as the case is resolved through the legal process.

I would not be suprised if he is actually kicked off the team to be honest.  This is third time for the same problem in the last year.  You would think he would have learned by now…
