A quick glance at the list shows Nebraska-Omaha picking up two players already for the 2009 season. Let us remind you that those players are probably 15-16 years old. How much is a verbal commitment worth at this stage of the game? Is it really worth anything if the player turns into a blue-chip recruit and bolts for Minnesota, or if he bombs out and the team doesn’t want him anymore? Or will all teams just start establishing their entire rosters four years in advance and Nebraska is just getting a head start?
