What do you like about this class? Stanton? Two 4-star running backs? The LB corp?

Speed rusher of the edge, with two first names
Everything except for ol (ask me after Wednesday) corner and the absence of a juco dt
All of the above
Love Bando Newby = BEAST
Johnny = fan favorite
Maliek Collins = sacks
Adam and Terrell = 90% run 10% pass
Gerry mcwilson singleton = KOs (I do hope the oppenent is alright when they come to)
Knevel Finnin and Hannon = flapjack
Gladney and walker (hopefully. He'll be GOOD) = first downs and occasional td when Johnny gets tired of handing it off.
I almost forgot Gregory! Mark my words!
HE WILL BE A MONSTARRR!
In conclusion I like our class very much and we need a corner.
Adam Taylor, Finnin, Natter, et al.
Nothing....oh wait everything.
NEBRASKA FOOTBALL= Great Players, Great Coaches, AMAZING PEOPLE
Above post continued...natter and suttles will be future ballers.
Can't forget the long snapper. His balls will be on point. CAN'T WAIT!!!! Wooo GBR
That I agree with nustudent ...
...It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.
W. C. Fields
To elaborate further
QB: A+ Stanton is a stud and fits what we'd like to do. Everything about him says leader.
RB: A+ Newby and Taylor are one of the top 2 or 3 tandems in the nation this year. Both are special players
WR: B+ Gladney and Walker are not dynamic players but they are very good. Dixon is also solid and gives you some versatility
TE: B+ Sandland would've made this an A. Hart and Carter are very very good players and allow you to do different things offensively.
OL: C+ Because of numbers. Finnin was huge. Knevel and Hannon are very good prospects. Landing Johnson certainly bumps this up. Kondolo + Johnson really bumps this up.
DE: A Stud JUCO DE recruit and two very good looking high school players that will allow you to do different things in your fronts.
DT: C+ Collins and Maurice have potential but still have to have some question marks. Very apparent we wanted a JUCO DT and we struck out big time.
LB: A+ Very good core group. Good players at each of the 3 LB positions.
CB: F We have no one.
S: A- Have 3 solid players right now, one of which enrolled early to get a head start, which we may need for depth purposes.
I would have to agree with your grades. Seem to be rite along with what i would put. If we could some how pull Willis away from Ucla, and get one more of the regaining db targets this class would be an overall A-. Only due to DT position.
I've give the WRs a B- or a C, the OL a B- right now, but otherwise your list is about right.
OL can't be a B or B- with only 3 guys in the class.
Good analysis. CB is still in play, hopefully, but is a head scratcher. Missing on a JUCO DT, is definitely hard to understand. I do think that Collins & Maurice are underrated, but we'll only know that in time. I do think they are precisely in Kaz's wheelhouse with his track record of developing kids.
I can't disagree with this at all... though if Dixon is brought in as a corner then I would bump CB up to a D
So overall class is a B then for you?
If signing day was today, I'd give it a C or C+. Lots of very good players but it's still incomplete. Hard to give it anything higher when you still have 5 open spots left in it.
If everything shakes out like I think it will. I think it will be an A- or B+ class.

Not nustudent but since I echoed his rankings and upgraded CB to a D this is how I see it:
On the ivy league grading system that's a B... too many misses at CB and DT IMO. Not sure about OL, if we get Johnson I would say OL goes up to a B, maybe a B+ IMO.
With Williams switching to Louisville, it is hard to see the CB becoming higher than a C. Even if Dixon is moved to CB....
My favorite part of this class is the high character of a majority of the recruits. Can't wait to see these guys hit the field as well, got some studs on O for sure
I never said OL was a B. I said B- (and you said C+).
You even quoted what I wrote. Curious how you got it wrong when you quoted me...
This is as simple of a question as you can get.
Answer: I like what we have, and I don't like what we dot have.
Give me extra credit cuz I went above and beyond
Teein' Off on Links
May want to read my quote again. I said B or B-. Curious how you got that wrong when you quoted me.
Haters gonna hate...
Oh, you forgot:
Long Snapping: A+
C+ = correct; a third of a grade higher = can't be!
