The 2010 Husker Football class is set. And, while the Huskers may not have a nationally ranked Top 10 class, they did fill obvious needs. Sure, it would have been great to land Owamagbe Odighizuwa the great Defensive End from Oregon. But The Huskers got some true gems in Cory Cooper (Safety) and Brion Carnes (QB). Both were very highly recruited and somewhat of a surprise signing day decision for the Huskers. The Huskers also got a highly rated speedster running back, Braylon Heard. But to me the biggest addition is that of Jemarcus Hardrick (OL) or “Yoshi” as he is known. Yoshi is a huge man at 6′7 and 315 lbs and plays with an attitude. I expect him to be more of an immediate impact than any other player in the Huskers 2010 class. You can see a complete list of the 2010 Huskers here
Now I know many of you will think this class must not be great because the national pundits give the Huskers no love. Not so fast my friend, National Recruit Rankings are based on total points accumulated. So, the Huskers with a small class this year really had little chance of reaching a Top 10 ranking or even a Top 25. And, before any Callahan apologists try to stake a claim about his Top 10 class of 2005 remember he had about 30 recruits that year compared to 21 for the Huskers this year. AND, more importantly every single one of these recruits WANTS to be a Husker and play for Coach Pelini. You can BOLIEVE this class will leave a lasting impression on you!
