Nebraska's head coach, Bo Pelini just completed a busy offseason of recruiting. Although not a top 25 recruiting class, the class is still one that Cornhusker fans can be excited about.
Nebraska wasn't able to get a 5 star recruit in the 2010 class, but I believe Nebraska's top rated recruit, Corey Cooper, of Maywood, IL is by far the best corner in the nation. Cooper weighs in at 200 lbs and runs the 40 in 4.45 seconds. He was ranked the twelth best corner by Scout.com. He has some of the best hands for a corner I think I have ever seen. At 6'2" and 200 lbs Cooper may have a distinct physical advantage over just about everyone. In addition to his size, Cooper also posseses a great burst of speed coming out of his breaks.
Nebraska's top rated Quarterback, Brion Carnes, commited to Nebraska being fully aware that he might get a chance to help the Huskers. Brion has great arm strength and running ability. Carnes areas of weakness are accuracy and field vision. He is the 47th ranked quarterback by Scout.com, but is only a 3 star.
Andrew Rodriguez, at 6'6", 300 lbs is our best offensive lineman. Andrew is very agressive and a good run blocker. He is inconsistent at pass blocking and is slow off the ball. He ranks 13th at his position and is the third ranked Husker. He was projected to start by his junior year.
Overall, the Huskers had an exceptional year recruiting but were disapointed by taking a big fall in the defensive line, although a jump in the o-line. I guess that when this class are seniors the Huskers will be 10-4 and win the Gator Bowl.
