Creighton Prep’s Easton Stick makes six: That is the number of Nebraska high school football prospects currently holding D-1A offers. The strong-armed pro-style QB picked up his first D- 1A offer from Mid-American Conference (MAC) member The University of Akron. The other Nebraskans holding D-1 offers are: D.J. Foster, OG, Lincoln Southeast, Luke Gifford, ATH, Lincoln Southeast; Harrison Phillips, DE, Millard West; Mick Stoltenberg, DE, Gretna and last—but not least—Kenzo Cotton, CB, Papillion-La Vista.
Cotton recently picked up his third known D-1A offer from the Big Ten’s Wisconsin. Of course, Bo Pelini still has not made an offer to Cotton. At this stage in the game, if Pelini does make and offer—I sure hope Kenzo goes somewhere else! Anywhere, please. Because while Bo Pelini is still trying to figure out how he got outcoached by the Badgers in the 2012 Big Ten Championship Game blowout (31-70), the Wisconsin coaches are busily out recruiting him in his own damn state!
In my opinion, if Kenzo Cotton decides to play college football, he will become at the very minimum an all-conference-type player at the college level, but most likely much more than that.
How in the hell does an in-state Big Ten coach not make the first conference offer to a kid who is physically a 6-foot-2-inch, bona fide purebred stud who smashed the Nebraska high school state records in the 100 and 200 meter dashes. There is no excuse for Pelini and his staff to let this happen.

Maybe the reason Bo has not offered Kenzo is because there are already too many Cottons on the team. You know, with all Barney’s boys and all. Just darn too many of them there Cottons!. Hmm.
Did you see the 2013 NFL draft results for the Huskers? Ha, that is Pelini’s five year plan at work. Those were all his recruits.
How long? Not long: That is the answer to how much longer Bo Pelini will be around Lincoln. I’ll have much more to say on the subject in Part II of. Bo Pelini Unleashed: Totting up the Head Football Coach’s Five Years at Nebraska.
