After reading discussions on some other sites, people seem to think that the world is ending since this kid committed to Notre Dame. It's not the end of the world. There have been top recruits out of the state that went to school elsewhere and we did ok. We get our share of top recruits from other states (Iowa for example).
Sure it would be nice to have this kid playing for the Huskers, but that's the way it goes. Good luck to him.
Being a top recruit doesn't always mean success.
