Brock Minert-Husker Corner

Monday Mailbag (5/12/14)

Hey there Husker Cornerians. Well, the NFL Draft’s over, free agents have been signed and you know what that means. We’re officially entering the harshest dead period when it comes to football. The good news is that Nebraska is excelling in other sports and fans are certainly taking notice as you’re about to see.

Do you think Nebraska baseball will host a regional and if not, how many wins do they need to get an at-large bid? – Timothy Triton

Brandon: I felt a safe number was 35 prior to the Michigan State series. I still think that’s enough, but I maintain they need to take the Illinois series. A total of 38 wins would be a comfortable mark.

What do you think will happen with Jordan Cornish? – Steve Thompson

Brandon: Recruiting’s recruiting and it’s hard to say. I can without bias that I believe Nebraska gives him the best opportunity to shine immediately. He could make an impact that would give the Huskers another player to smack the Big Ten in the mouth with.

I can’t help but feel UNLV’s up to something considering they have no scholarships and are still bringing him in for a visit. We’ll all find out shortly.

When can we expect some more football commitments? – Barry Dunlap

Brandon: It’s not odd to me that things have slowed down a bit. We’re going to see some camps and likely commitments come out of those, if not a week or two after. June and July should see some positive results.

You mentioned in a recent article that you don’t see Randy Gregory going pro following this season. Why do you think this is the case? – Eddie Hirsch

Brandon: Gregory’s obviously a terror as is, but his weight is a constant question mark. Obviously, I have no idea what the science behind it is, but he has to find a way to put on more pounds or he’s not going to be a true threat in The League after his junior year.

I think it’d be an overall benefit for him to stick around, get the practice, take care of the weight questions and then move on to the big time.
