mostly for CWSooner.............

Nebraska commit Sevion Morrison eclipses 4,000 career rushing yards and breaks the school rushing record at Tulsa Edison set by Spencer Tillman.
And Edison beat hated rival Tulsa Memorial 67-0.  Memorial has about a 2:1 advantage in this series that dates back to the 1960s, but not last night.

Nebraska added a big commit to its 2020 class on Thursday in Henry Gray.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound cornerback out of Miami (Fla.) Central announced his commitment to the Big Red via social media. Gray picked NU over finalists such as Miami, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan and had over 25 total offers to his name. Gray becomes the 11th known verbal commit for Nebraska's 2020 recruiting class.


Out of Miami Central High School, Gray is rated 201st among all recruits in the 247Sports composite rankings, and 32nd among all players in the talent rich state of Florida.

Gray becomes the third commit from Florida in the 2020 class joining DB Tamon Lynum and RB Marvin Scott III. The Huskers' lone 2021 commit, DE RJ Sorensen, also hails from Florida. That's an important factor considering NU didn't sign anyone from the Sunshine State last year and they want to continue to recruit the state hard in the future.

PA LB Preston Zachman committed to the Badgers last night.

He'll probably be a hybrid S/LB in the Badger system.

Nebraska added commitment No. 12 on Friday when Rodney Groce Jr. announced for the Huskers nearly a week after he took an official visit to Lincoln.

Groce, an inside linebacker, joins the Huskers following a rough loss to Ohio State, but what was a strong visit weekend overall for the inside linebacker.

The three-star from Pleasant Grove told Husker247 that he was blown away by the atmosphere in Lincoln and the people. Whether it was coaching staff or fans he met during his three-day experience in Nebraska, Groce enjoyed seeing and hearing from them.

“What mainly stood out about the visit for me is the coaching staff and the loyal fans that Nebraska has,” he said. “That really caught my eye.”

Nebraska's struggles in a 48-7 loss to Ohio State didn't deter Groce either, as he said his belief is in Nebraska's staff, because of the relationships he's developed over time with defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud. That relationship, along with belief in the staff, had Groce saying he felt like the Huskers would adjust and move on from the ugly defeat.

The Huskers are looking to put together another class of 20-plus recruits in the 2020 cycle. Groce comes to Nebraska as an important addition, given the Huskers quest to add linebacker depth to the linebacker group that has thinned considerably over two cycles. Last year the Huskers made some important additions at the inside linebacker spot with Jackson Hannah, Nick Henrich and Garrett Snodgrass, as well as preferred walk-on Luke Reimer, but the Huskers have yet to play the initial three and they could be headed toward a redshirt season. Mo Barry is the lone senior, so the Huskers conceivably have plenty of options going into next season at the position.


Groce would also be another addition from Alabama, giving the Huskers a pair from that state, joining quarterback commitment Logan Smothers. The state has been one the Huskers have pursued fairly heavily since the Scott Frost staff took over in December 2017.


Nebraska added Cam Taylor-Britt in the 2018 class and then followed that up with Jamin Graham in the 2019 cycle. This would be the third defensive player from Alabama, and hardly the last as the Huskers are also pursuing Smothers' teammate and Alabama commitment, Jackson Bratton, heavily in this cycle as well.

Nebraska continues to slowly pull its recruiting class together, as Groce becomes the second in-season commitment, joining Henry Gray from Miami, a defensive back who jumped on board with the Huskers after visiting for the Northern Illinois game in September.

Here's a story on your Tulsa recruit, Fearless.

High school football: Sevion Morrison, Edison get it rolling against Bishop Kelley
By Ben Johnson For the Tulsa World
16 hrs ago


Edison running back Sevion Morrison (right) runs out of an attempted tackle by Bishop Kelley’s Owen Heinecke on Thursday night at LaFortune Stadium. Morrison rushed for 225 yards and four touchdowns in Edison’s 33-14 victory. IAN MAULE/Tulsa World

Sevion Morrison was bottled up with nowhere to run. Early on in the critical District 5A-3 matchup, the Nebraska commit had only a handful of yards on 12 carries.



Then he broke loose.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound tailback took off on a 64-yard gain down to Bishop Kelley’s 1-yard line seconds before halftime arrived. He punched it in from a yard out one play later, and that was all Class 5A No. 5 Edison needed for a boost en route to a 33-14 victory over sixth-ranked Bishop Kelley on Thursday night at LaFortune Stadium.

“I knew it was coming,” Morrison said. “I’ve been working for this all week, so I knew it was coming eventually. I didn’t know exactly when, but I knew it had to come.”

Morrison finished with 225 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries. His 39-yard TD run early in the third quarter gave Edison (4-1, 2-0 5A-3) a 14-7 lead, and the Eagles turned it on from there.

“It just took a little bit of time,” Edison coach Tony Daniels said. “Took a little bit of time to get things revved up because they’re Bishop Kelley. But to score right before the half, that was huge.”

While Morrison was zigging and zagging his way through the Comets defense, Daniels greeted Morrison at the 1 to make sure the Eagles were still in good shape to score a TD. With the stadium scoreboard inoperable during the game, Daniels wanted to clarify with the side judge that Morrison escaped out of bounds.

“I just wanted to make sure the clock wasn’t starting, and that he got out where he was supposed to,” Daniels said. “We just didn’t want to miss an opportunity.”

The Eagles cashed in and claimed all the momentum headed into intermission.

In the second half, Edison quarterback Rhazjon Green collected 84 of his 97 rushing yards on a TD run that gave the Eagles a 21-7 advantage. The Eagles’ final two TDs — runs by Morrison of 24 and 5 yards — put Edison in control at 33-7.
The Eagles finished with 364 yards rushing and 443 total yards, and their defense limited Bishop Kelley (2-3, 1-1) to 225 yards of offense.

Kelley went 65 yards on its opening possession, capped by Stephen Collins’ 9-yard TD pass to Cori Lewis. But the Comets wouldn’t score again until Collins’ 2-yard run in the fourth quarter.

“Felt good to get a win versus Bishop Kelley and get us over the hump,” said Daniels, whose team snapped a four-game losing streak to the Comets. “It puts us at 2-0, but we keep telling the kids we’re still 0-0. We just have to keep grabbing that axe and chopping that wood.”

I hate the unis those teams are wearing.  Edison's colors are green and white.  Kelley's are red and white.

Get the butt-thug-ugly black off those uniforms!

And get off my lawn!

Yeah, no clue, but I'm guessing his re-rank will be quite a bit higher than a middling 3* with WSU and MSU as his presumptive leaders.  I'm always wary of guys shooting up based on how they look in shorts, but MSU already missed on their 1-a and 1-b targets at QB, so as a third option, I suppose they could do worse, I just don't see a guy with the options he should have now, playing across the country in MSU's trash offense.
What's his name? From your posts it sounds like his offer list still hasn't grown. Maybe it won't.
C.J. Stroud.

And yesterday Ohio State offered, so...
