The scouts talk Husker commits

BRR reached out to various scouts on the network to get their thoughts on the Huskers commit list going into the 2014 season.

LINCOLN, Neb. - features more recruiting analyst and reporters than any other network in the industry – allowing us to see more kids live in-person. Big Red Report decided to take advantage of it earlier this week

We reached out to members of the team to get their thoughts on Nebraska’s commit list going into the season. What they liked about each player and what they thought that played needed to work on going into the season.

WR.) NeKyle Lundie – (No. 73 S in the country)
“Could play either side of the ball on the next level. Still needs to really improve on the little things. On offense, his route running, quickness out of breaks, and consistency in traffic are areas he can improve on. He is long and he has deceptive speed. On defense, he is a safety who can come down and make a play against the run. Playing the alley, delivering the hit, and being an extra man in the box are strengths now. He still has a lot of room to develop in coverage, reading the quarterback, and not being too overly aggressive. One of the raw said with real potential.” - Chad Simmons, national recruiting analyst

OL.) Mirko Jurkovic – (No. 31 OG in the country)
“I think he can play both inside and out. I could certainly see him playing right tackle in college and also swing inside to guard. Jurkovic moves very well and has terrific feet. I really like his game and upside. Once he fills out and grows into his frame I think he has a chance to be a very good offensive lineman in Lincoln for the Cornhuskers.” - Jamie Newberg, national recruiting analyst

DB.) Aaron Williams – (No. 160 CB in the country)
“Versatile defensive back who could play corner or free safety. Solid short-space quickness and can flip his hips in coverage. Supports the run better than some expect with his size. Can play physical. Can improve his man coverage and his jamming bigger receivers. Solid short-space quickness in coverage with good awareness.” - Chad Simmons, national recruiting analyst

DE.) DaiShon Neal – (No. 71 DE in the country)
“A lengthy player who could shoot up some by showing some more consistency. Moving on to Nebraska preps action you'd like to see a player with his size and skill set be able to dominate at times and take over games.” Greg Powers, national recruiting analyst

OL.) Michael Decker – (No. 6 C in the country)
“Decker is very consistent on the field and is a mauling run blocking specialist at this point in time, but the one question mark may be how is he as a pass blocker. That question likely will not be answered until he gets to college as his team pounds the rock.” – Greg Powers, national recruiting analyst

DT.) Carlos Davis – (No. 19 DT in the country - ****)
“There are not a whole lot of gaps in his game. Nitpicking a bit here when breaking down his skills, but I would like to see him uses his hands a bit more and implement or work on some of those small intricacies of the position.” - Greg Powers, national recruiting analyst

DT.) Khalil Davis – (No. 29 DT in the country)
"It is not necessarily a skill set, but maybe his senior season will tell the final tale of whether or not Khalil is a guy who can play on the edge some in college or will definitely be used on the inside." - Greg Powers, national recruiting analyst

OL.) Christian Gaylord – (No. 48 OT in the country)
“Gaylord is a player who I think has the skill sets to be able to get on the field early on in his career once he adds some more strength. He has a nice frame and good feet and once he gets the power he will have the well-rounded skill set that every one covets.” - Greg Powers, national recruiting analyst

DB.) Avery Anderson – (No. 27 S in the country - ****)
“Anderson is versatile enough to play corner and safety and just needs to continue to loosen up the hips more and get a little more fluid. He’s already a physical presence in the secondary with good length.” - Brandon Huffman national recruiting analyst

RB.) Kendall Bussey – (No. 57 RB in the country)
“Overall Bussey is a good back, but not ideal size in height category, but compact and strong. Good balance, not great wiggle, but good cut-back ability. Has good top end speed. Not a back that is going to carry a team and be a workhorse for four quarters. Solid hands for the backfield.” - Chad Simmons, national recruiting analyst

DB.) Eric Lee – (No. 18 CB in the country - ****)
“Already a top-tier corner, both stout in run stopping and, more importantly, pass coverage, just needs to continue to bulk up while not losing his flexibility and closing speed.” - Brandon Huffman national recruiting analyst

*** With quarterback commit Kevin Dillman's situation and his recent transfer, he was not included in this report. He was also hurt his junior year.
