Recruiting: Nebraska nabs Ohio TE for 2013
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

Other than quarterback, tight end is Nebraska’s biggest need for the 2013 class, and the Huskers landed a key piece Wednesday when Dayton (Alter) Ohio adjuster Greg Hart committed to NU.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pounder — a three-star target according to 247Sports — will be the guy, he said, who replaces Nebraska senior Kyler Reed. He visited over the weekend.

“The academics, it really did impress me,” Hart told 247Sports. “They have 294 Academic All-Americans, and they’re hands on with players. It’s a good program with what I want to do which is business, and I think I’ll make a lot of connections when I get out of there. When you commit to them, they commit to you 100 percent and I’ll be able to reach my goals.”

Hart’s taller than Reed, and maybe a step slower. He looks more like a bulkier version of Mike McNeill. Hart told Huskers Illustrated he was NU’s No. 1 tight end target.

The seventh overall commit of the class, Hart had offers from several Division I schools, including Northwestern, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Virginia, Wake Forest and Boston College. In-state schools Ohio, Cincinnati, Akron and Kent State had also offered Hart.

    Oooooh. My goodness. What a coup for Bo et al.

    1. Jesus says:

      Obviously Mr. Meltdown is a miserable human being.
      If we wanted him… then GREAT GET!

      Go Big Red!

      1. Mr. Meltdown says:

        You’re right! I’m miserable and will be until Bo is gone and we get a decent head coach here. You all keep drinking the Kool-Aid, while those of us who want the best for the team keep expressing our opinions until he is gone…hopefully at the end of the season!!!

    2. CORNANGEL says:

      Congratulations Greg, I see where you went to a private prep school and that Northwestern recruited you. These are things that Mr. Meltdown could only dream about.

      There are many Huskers on the team that were recruited by the likes of Stanford, Notre Dame, Northwestern & Boston College.

      Please ignore the professional bloggers on this site who don’t understand what a quality kid like a Sean Fisher means to the program. Look him up, he is an Academic All-American with a 4.0 GPA.

      Also, since when did running a 4.63 in high school as a tight end equate to lumbering?

      Ok ok ok. I watched the kid. Very impressive as a TE. I will say that. Very good hands. Looks like he has the attitude for blocking to.. Very nice. BUT, Bo, were at 1 time even watching the QB who was throwing the ball???? That man was on the money!!! Plus he did an EXCELLENT option pitch. Damn, almost looking like Touchdown Tommie out there.Notice I said ALMOST. If I was Beck, I would aim for that QB to. If the kid is quick in running speed, as good as he throws the ball. Then if that QB got recruited by BO or Beck, TM = BENCH WARMER, and that other kid proves to be the REAL DEAL. I would put him in as a starting QB.I know he would be just a FRESHMAN, but so was Tommie, and so was ALOT of QBs OU used to kick NUs butt. Man, I hope Bo is studying that QB as well as that TE.

      1. n0 on3 says:

        I believe that QB’s name is Malik Zaire. He was recruited by Beck, had an offer from NU as well as Alabama, Arizona, Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Ohio State, Pittsburg, and Wisconsin. However he chose to commit to Notre Dame.

      2. somebody says:

        Zaire was NU’s top QB target for 2013, so Bo and Beck were a little bit ahead of you on that one Joey. Maybe you could show the coaches some film of Aaron Bailey, Matt Alviti, and J.T. Barrett while you’re at it. Should have made you recruiting coordinator.

  2. bam says:

    Ham gbr

  3. Steve Frye says:

    Seriously? the competition is second tier for this recruit. Does this mean that Bo is losing on recruiting to the likes of OSU and MU? I’m not sure this article is really flattering for our beloved program.

    1. herbie says:

      everybody needs to take a chill pill and just be happy for the kid. quit complaining about stars if he was a 4 star recruit you’d be complaining he wasn’t a five.

      1. joey says:

        Not me Herbie. I welcome the kid. Just FIRE that BUM Barney Cotton. He’s a real set back to the fb team. TM got nailed how many times last season? 3 was in 1 bowl game, and it was right in a row. Hart looks really good. I noticed the attitude when I seen him block. That’s a BIG plus in my books.
        I just want to see a 4 star or BLUE CHIP OL COACH!!! It’s NOT the players ( well… in some cases )fault, it’s who COACHES them. Our OL continues to struggle, because they have a OL coach, that is NOT a ligit OL coach. What is it? 5 or 6 seasons later, and he still struggles? Can’t blame the players now, the OL struggles because of BARNEY, that is waaaaaay more than obvious.

  4. Billy C's "Good Football Team" says:

    Nice commitment. Despite what others will say good players have come from Pitt (Larry Fitzgerald) N.C State (the Q.B who torched us last year named Russel Wilson) Boston College (the best L.B in this years N.F.L draft) Norhwestern (a team that beat us last year) Kentucky (Randall Cobb). Mike McNeil was an effective target while playing at Tight End, but struggled blocking at times. If he can run routes like McNeil and block he could develop into a great player. Good Job Bo and Staff.

    1. Mr. Meltdown says:

      Yeah, but what do all the players you mention have in common??? They DON’T HAVE BO for a coach!!!

      1. CORNANGEL says:

        Suh, Dennard, Amukamara, David?

        Wasn’t Bo at the Heisman Trophy Ceremony with a Defensive Tackle?

        Is this a common occurrence for anyone to be up for this award on DEFENSE?

        Would it be a stretch to say that SUH was the BEST defensive player to every put on a Nebraska uniform?

  5. Terence says:

    Ohio? This kid sounds like a good get and will more than likely do fine at Nebraska. A question though is does Nebraska recruit anywhere other than Ohio or get coaches that have a connection other than Ohio?

    1. CORNANGEL says:

      Behind the state of Texas, Ohio produces the most CFB talent.

      Nebraska has had one B1G year under its belt and it is replacing Texas recruiting by going into the state of Ohio and getting recruits.

      How is going into Ohio and getting kids a negative?

      1. A Fan says:

        Wrong. Florida rivals Texas for the most CFB talent.

        1. CORNANGEL says:

          I stand corrected.

          Ohio is the most fertile in B1G country and supplants Texas of the Big 12.

          Nationally, Ohio is #4 in NFL player production.

          P.S. How exactly has all that talent worked out for Mack Brown’s 12 losses in the past 2 seasons?

          I’m sure there is some angle to bash Bo in there somewhere for ya.

  6. Savage Husker says:

    This is bigger than people give credit for. There aren’t too many hyped TEs any year, a solid 3* is a good building block. We haven’t had a TE in our last two classes and GH is a big boy who will get bigger in college. LSU didn’t see much in Debo Jones until after his senior year, Bo & Co are good at finding talent, it’s getting them here that is the challenge, any recruiting win is a win.

  7. HuskerRebel says:

    Get off Bo’s butt!

  8. NUCORNDEVIL says:

    Just so everyone is in the Know The NUCORNDEVIL who posted at 9:26 and 9:24 is a complete impostor, it’s obvious he is supporting Bo Pelini, which i will never do.
    Nebraska is on the decline in recruiting after that ‘poser’ introduction into the big slow. going from the Big 12 Championship game to winning the ‘Cornbowl’ isn’t an improving program in year 4, i know NU had injuries, NU is always the only team in the country who has injuries when they suck.
    The whole country watched T-Melt struggle in a glorified high school offense, this is definitely used against us in the QB, WR, recruiting war.
    I do appreciate all recruits that choose NU, i wish them all the best. Unfortunately it’s down hill from here until Oz or his replacement makes a splash in a coaching change, a la Ohio State.

    1. Colorado Springer says:

      Ala Ohio State? They haven’t played a game yet and you are ready to bow down to a coach that has created nothing but resentment and contempt with his typical SEC recruiting BS. The stories coming out of the Florida program are not complimentary. Is he bringing his QB coach along, the one that taught Tim Tebow to pass? If he returns the Ohio State University to its former glory, that will be comendable but certainly not amazing. How many top coaches are lined up to take Bo’s place? Do you see Lincoln as a Mecca? The difficulties in building a top flight program in such an isolated place really is an amazing accomplishment. We Nebraskans love it, but it is an acquired taste. Dealing with your arrogant posts where you speak as some supposed authority really is getting boring.

      1. NUCORNDEVIL says:

        Check Ohio States, for that matter, check Michigans recruiting classes.

      2. A Fan says:

        Well, Devaney and Osborne were able to build a powerhouse in an isolated place… and we stayed a powerhouse for the better part of 40 years. Getting tired of the excuses. If you accept that we can’t do this and that, then that’s the new measuring stick.

        1. NUCORNDEVIL says:

          Remember the ‘Parity’ excuses in the late 80′s early 90′s?

    2. CORNANGEL says:

      Don’t you want to take the time to explain to recruits who Tom Rathman is?

      You have been campaigning for Pelini to be fired and to bring in a career running backs coach who played football at Nebraska back in the 80s.

      Tom Rathman’s football coaching experience at the high school, college & NFL level:

      HC – O years
      OC – O years
      DC – O years

      1. joey says:

        Corn Angel?? Are you going to stop on the Rathman trip already? It’s gotten very old now. Hey if he comes to coach ANY part of NU football, he has my welcome. He’s DEFINATELY earned every bit of his respect in Lincoln. But the last time I checked,…… nope No Rathman on the coaching staff in NU fb. I mean you proved your point. But to carry it on EVERY SINGLE TIME YOUR ONLINE!!!! Is really REALLY getting rediculous. Hey, I take constructive criticism ok to. But when some drags out what I said 2 to 3 MONTHS ago. Then that’s NOT debating, that’s DWELLING ON THE PAST!!! So, please, let it go,…ok?

        1. CORNANGEL says:

          I will let it go when I don’t see the daily “fire Pelini” post from CORNDEVIL. He is actively trying to get a groundswell of support & I am reminding fans that he has NO sound plan after the firing. Tom Rathman is an out of left field see if it sticks to the wall solution. This pull the trigger first approach left Steve Pederson with getting stuck with Bill Callahan over Houston Nutt.

          I will be counting on you to hold him in check and reminding him that if he were a recruit and an article was written about him he would find a way to get to the article to see what was written.

          I will not post as long as my fear of losing the next Tommie Frazier is allayed. Hold him accountable you will not see me.

          1. joey says:

            EVERYONE has a right to their opinion. Even if we don’t agree. Soldiers died for us to have those rights. I may not agree with his choices, and maybe I will. But I respect his choices. NOT because of what he posted. But to the honor of those soldiers that paid the ultimate sacrifice for , so we ALL have these rights. I turned on Pelini, when he turned on the fans. Referring to them as KNOW NOTHINGS. Bo forgot 1 MAJOR RULE. Don’t bite the hans that feeds you. WE fans is the reason Bo makes the $$$ he does. With NO fans = NO $$$$. Not even Osbourne, Devaney, Solich, or Callahan stepped on on fans like that. They may refer to them as a little crazy. Because they are!!! But the players FEED of their emotions.
            But about this “pull the trigger ” idea of yours. Our former AD, just went and fired Solich, with NO meetings or discussions about. It was just HIS big power trip. NO DIFFERENT than the Chancellor of NU. HE is the one responsible FOR the hire of Bill C. Which is what it was then, is what it is now…. POLITICS. It didn’t do squat for this country, and the results will end the same for NU and what former players and coaches have built this university to be. Like I’ve saying for a LONG TIME NOW!!! End the politics, before it ENDS the univesity. Because like it or not, POLITICS destroys EVERYTHING it touches.

        2. somebody says:

          Yeah, cornangel is almost as annoying as corndevil.

          1. CORNANGEL says:

            For every annoying CORNDEVIL post, there will be a correspondingly annoying CORNANGEL post.

      2. NUCORNDEVIL says:

        Let me make something clear, something i think you may have missed, my point behind hiring Tom Rathman was based on the fact if NU was going to hire an under qualified HC, they might as well hire a well decorated ex Husker, who could grow into the position, someone Oz can tutor, someone who will put their heart into it, someone who would be dedicated, and actually believe NU is a destination.
        As far as football experience, its a push, Rathman would have the edge in loyalty.

    3. CORNANGEL says:

      Just so everyone is in the Know The NUCORNDEVIL who posted at 9:26 and 9:24 is a complete impostor.
      I had no idea what you blogging lingo meant so I looked it up on Wikipedia:


      Im postor – An impish blogging poser posing as a fan poster with the sole intent on ruining a college football program.

      A college program can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his husker banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of the blogoshpere itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a program, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the program, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

      1. NUCORNDEVIL says:

        btw…………..FIRE Pelini!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. CORNANGEL says:

          And hire ____________?

          You’ve got absolutely nothing but taking all the fans down another 5-7 “ESPN worst coach of the decade” Billy C. rabbit hole thrill ride.

          1. CORNANGEL says:

            Anti–semitic remarks aside, Osborne made a base salary of $150,000 in his last MNC title run in 1997. He makes $250,000 as AD of NU. For $ perspective, Deloss Dodds makes somewhere north of $600,000.

            You do have something in that Osborne doesn’t think the philosophy of paying someone “Mack Brown” money in Nebraska can be sustained for the long term or that those that come purely for the big $$ will be cut of the right Nebraska cloth. I thought Pelini is paid around $3MM which was up near the top of the B1G?

            BTW, how do you explain the 12 losses in the past two years by $5MM man Mack Brown? Isn’t he one of the highest paid coaches. Biggest budet, highest revenues, *****5 star McDonalds All American Blue Gray Bowl USDA Grade AAA recruits with a Moodys rating of AAA++++?

            Why don’t you campaign for Mack’s firing & maybe Pelini will leave opening up numerous coaching replacement suggestions.

            This speculation should occur after the regular season HAS ENDED. Not 24/7 365.

  9. Twauto22 says:

    Great Pick up, TE is a big need and hes a pretty darn good prospect!

    1. RoverBrian says:

      I’m with you. Great pickup with good size and speed. Kudos to the recruiters!! You are doing a great job.

  10. boggie77 says:

    Good pickup. Do we still go after another TE. I think we had at least one guy on our list that was rated higher, but is there room for another TE.

    1. Nick says:

      Yes, they are planning on taking another TE.

  11. Grady says:

    Alfonso Dennard, Jared Crick, Lavonte David, Prince Amukamuara were all 3 star recruits… I’d say they all turned out pretty good compared to the likes of Marlon Lucky, Chris Brooks, to name a few… Stars are not the end all be all in terms of production. They might be a good indicator but just as in life, nothing is guaranteed. So please, stop your complaining about stars and congratulate Mr. Hart to The Cornhusker State!

    1. CORNANGEL says:

      Congratulations Mr. Hart!

    2. CORNANGEL says:

      Other notable 3 stars:

      Eric Hagg, Roy Helu, Zac Taylor, Ty Steinkuhler, Nathan Swift, Adam Carriker, Matt Herian, Pierre Allen, Mike McNeill, Cameron Meredith, Kyler Reed, Dejon Gomes, Kenny Bell, & Ameer Abdullah,

      No stars:
      Matt Slauson

      1. Mr. Meltdown says:

        Great point! If we can just keep up recruiting players like you mention there will be 8 and 9 win seasons as far as the eye can see.

      2. A Fan says:

        You’re not making an argument in support of winning it all. Those guys you mentioned are all good football players, some of them are very good… but the Cornhuskers were what when they played? 8 wins? 9 wins? 10 wins?

        We have to recruit great football players. And a bunch of them. If we don’t do that, we are going to be stuck at 9 or 10 wins for a long time.

        1. Tripduz says:

          You must be under the age of 18 with this mentality. Good thing there was no internet back in Osborne’s day or we would have never seen the 3 NC’s in the 90′s with blowhards like you and corndevil. 90% of smart, loyal fans will take being “stuck at 9 or 10 wins” for a long time just to see that one year where everything falls into place. Teams like UGA have been pulling in top tier talent all of this century and guess what…? Their last and only NC was in 1980!!

          Get a grip you whiners! Grow a pair and support the team you claim to be a fan of…

          1. joey says:

            BUT NU started the season, and ended in the TOP 10.. NO excuses why they can’t be there now.

          2. Tripduz says:

            That was a different time, when we played in a Big EIGHT conference which routinely had one maybe two other teams ranked. We also played 3 non conference games then and usually only one vs a formidable opponent/2 cupcakes. We also had no scholarship limitations and could stockpile walk ons (now those guys are going to start at other universities instead of waiting in the pipeline).

            Face it, the times have changed and UNL fell behind. Osborne warned us not to take those mid 90 teams for granted. We wasted 4 years under BC trying to adapt to the teens NFL mentality and that brought us two 5 win seasons. Didn’t you all learn your lesson then?? Apparently not!

          3. Tripduz says:

            And don’t get me wrong Joey, we are close to being a top 10 team consistently. There are just a few breaks we need here and there…mainly if we clean up penalties and turnovers I think we could have one/two less losses the past 4 seasons. Our margin of error is small. A few hillbilly pseudo fans are trying to wreck that continuity by parading a fire Bo campaign. ..that’s ridiculous!

            Last year nebraska’s strength of schedule was top 8 in the nation. I guarantee you it was never rated that high in the 90′s… Any one of you geniuses want to take that bet???

          4. RICK says:

            great comment! Perfectly articulated.

  12. TommyG says:

    Very glad to hear this. Welome to N, Greg. Looking forward to seeing him play on Saturdays with Armstrong running the helm in a few years. Dual threat QB with tall, Y type TEs can be a beautiful thing…

  13. Mac says:

    Welcome aboard Greg! You will love playing for Nebraska. We have high quality coaches, very good players, and except for the trolls, great fans. All the best as you take the next step.

    1. joey says:

      Umm Mac Barney Cotton is anything BUT high quality. NU had to hire other men to help Barney out. To get at least mediocre OL players. When Bo could’ve saved NU some$$$$ and just hire a LIGIT OL coach…yea?

  14. Nick says:

    Good pickup, as the TE prospects were few this year. You don’t see many highly rated TE prospects ever. The more in-roads we can get into OH the better. Word of mouth is the one of the best recruiting advantages. Decent offer list and it was growing as Miami was rumored to be offering before his commitment.

  15. Matt says:

    He’s the 19th rated tight end in the country, look at the list people. I guarantee you he would have seen offers from the likes of MI and tOHS down the road. Great pickup, plucking him away from other big 10 schools is a nice additional plus. Welcome to Nebraksa, Greg!

    1. RoverBrian says:

      Like your comment. He is a great pickup.

      1. public hair says:

        Yeah, but I was looking for more of a SUV or crossover.

  16. HuskerDave says:

    Welcome to Nebraska, Greg!

    Ignore the haters on these blogs. Husker Nation will overwhelmingly welcome you to our fair state and our flagship school. I hope you do well at “Good Ol Nebraska U,” and hope you have success on the football field, as well!

    1. A Fan says:

      The mediocrity of the small town mind.


      1. Debbie Downer says:

        The trolltastic thoughts of you.

        No class.

      2. CORNANGEL says:

        A Fan of what team?

        1. NUCORNDEVIL says:

          Your obsession of me is clear, i sometimes wonder if i started posting positives remarks about Pelini if you would actually debate them?
          Pelini is an ignorant hot head, when he begins to get out coached, he has only two responses, stand there and looked perplexed, or scream and holler at people, and players.
          We should have recognized the red flag when he ran onto the field and got in Bill Snyder’s face in 2003.
          Bill picked apart Pelini’s defense like a master chess player and it absolutely enraged Pelini.
          The unfortunate part behind this revelation, Pelini is so stubborn, he will never hire an assistant he truly feels has more intelligence than himself. Pelini will continue to replace his assistants with sub level personnel.
          If Pelini could learn anything from Osborne, something ALL of us TRUE Husker fans waited a long time for, and that is, surround yourself with brilliant people.
          This is obviously something Brady Hoke has done by default, because of his loyalty to the Wolverines, Hoke understands it’s not about him. This i believe is what Tom Rathman would do, Pelini is building a resume, explains all the claims he is being talked to by other schools, coaches let this happen to enhance the current contract, much like the Houston Nut debacle, Houston nut was NEVER in consideration for the NU job, he led his own propaganda parade to bolster his current contract with Arkansas. It is CLEAR Pelini is about Pelini, and his moonies!

  17. Max says:

    Like i saIdwe get 30th best tight end in country not one of top 10 prospects and wonder why will be ranked 20 to 25 next year with as always 4 losses while michigan and ohio state get top 10 prospects

  18. NUCORNDEVIL says:

    Can he throw?

  19. Big Beef says:

    Listen, everyone who loves the Huskers hoped Greg Hart is the next Mike Ditka.

    Just curious why Ohio St, Michigan, Penn St and Notre Dame have not offered. They farm Ohio bigtime too.

    Greg, show em they are all wrong, and Bo is right.

    1. Debbie Downer says:

      Duh. Nebraska wants to be just like those other schools? You, sir, are the worst kind of troll with your passive-aggresive meandering thoughts.

      Gosh darn these multiple trolls are frustrating.

    2. CORNANGEL says:

      Big Beef needs to sell his Skybox and his membership to the Nebraska Beef Club.

      Heard his is a major player in the Big N booster club.

  20. Max says:

    Hh Bo recruits defense probably have this guy playin defensive line hopin Cotton has some cousins that they can sign…fact 3losses and 2 walk ons startin on the offensive line..great kids…hard working…no chance when rushed by 4 and5 star d linemen…i have a relative on the coaching staff ..I lettered at Nebraska. And if you met these guys you could see why they cant recruit..they are like your pe teacher 30 Years ago..and Bo is paid like a CEO. But acts like a teenager with temper tantrums

    1. Tripduz says:

      Some of the best coaches ever were anything but gentleman like on the sideline. Bob Devaney comes to mind and you being in such direct contact with the university tells me you should know this! Nobody got busy with the refs like Devaney! But he changed the shape of NU football so what good was he huh?

      I do so happen to know Bo, caddied for him in Augusta and go stand on the sidelines for a game every season now. He is an awesome guy that is down to earth and very easy to relate to. He will recruit for Nebraska just fine if some if you would just get off his back and let him do his job. If not, by all means, submit your application and win an NC yourself!!

      1. Max says:

        And i have referees that are freinds along with donors …he is an embarrasment and comparing his demeanor to Devaneys is a joke…4losses every year and blow outs in games that count…remember the K State game. Most embarrasing defensive effort in history and Bo chasing down a hall of fame coach…think about it

          Combining the 1967 & 1968 seasons , Bob Devaney beat one ranked team. #17 ranked Minnesota.

          He also had quite a temper that was diffused by former NU assistant coach Jim Ross. Devaney and Ross were inseparable all the way back to their high school coaching days in Alpena, Mich., where Ross assisted Devaney in football and Devaney assisted Ross in basketball.

          “The thing that stuck out about Jim was he was a balanced person,” Osborne said. “Bob trusted Jim a lot because of their long history together. Whenever something came up that was a big decision, Bob looked at Jim pretty heavily for advice. Jim was always kind of a stabilizing force. Bob had a good sense of humor and liked to laugh, but he also had a temper and occasionally got upset about something. Jim was always the first one to calm the waters when that happened.”

    Max, Bob Stoops throws them worse than ANYONE I’ve ever seen. Which means more to you? Setting good examples? Or winning titles?

    Joey what happen ??? not so critical today ?? todays it’s world peace, soldiers being killed in war = Joey’s rights to speak his mind,,? What does that have to do with anything this article was talking about ? and Bo bashing fans for having a lack of knowledge ??? kind of like… someone I will quote above, but I will allow to remain nameless, ” NU should be looking at that QB who was throwing to the TE NU just signed…. hum ” ? Bo coaches, were fans and don’t have the knowledge to criticize on things we don’t know…. kind of like the QB NU should look at that was throwing to the TE we just signed…. but anyway….

      Don’t be so hard on Joey! He’s not a KNOW NOTHING, he discovered Malik Zaire!! Only a couple of months too late. If only Joey had alerted the Husker coaches so they could have started recruiting him earlier as their top QB target……oh, wait………….
