    Shawn Bodtman

    was just listening to 590 on the way home and heard the story of this 3 star olb that nebraska pulled the schollie offer from on january 15th. His high school coach was being interviewed and said he had interest from Pitt before committing to Nebraska last April. Is it possible Rhoads will be looking at him? Nebraska apologized to him and said it was due to a numbers crunch. He was Nebraskas second commit of the year. Ouch. He has to find a school in a hurry.

    Numbers crunch? That sounds fishy. Is there some behind the scenes stuff with this guy?

    Or he might not be as good as they thought, that's pretty cheap, looks like he's Maine bound now.

    Re: Shawn Bodtman

    I read on Tim Griffin's blog that he was hurt a few times during his senior year and that is why people think his scholly was pulled.

    Re: Shawn Bodtman

    People complain about recruits not remaining faithful to their word... Sad to see any coach do this to a kid during such a critical time in his life. Shame on them.

    Re: Shawn Bodtman

    coaches have not said anything yet as they cannot until after signing day.

    the likely explanation is that he was hurt this fall and never fully recovered after losing a lot of weight.

    i probably would not have waisted a scholly on him either if that is what in fact did happen, but that has not been said yet......




    In the deed the glory..........the glory is above!

    Re: Shawn Bodtman

    1620 in Omaha suggested that the coaching staff tried to contact him several times to get updates on his injuries and status but he did not respond. After failing to get a response or any update on his health they decided to pull his offer. Not sure of the details but that is one story out there.

    Re: Shawn Bodtman

    LINCOLN — Nebraska has pulled its scholarship offer to linebacker Shawn Bodtmann in the final days before the signing period opens for football. Bodtmann had been committed to NU since April.

    He learned the Huskers were no longer interested last week, according to Mike DeAntona, his coach at West Scranton (Pa.) High School.

    Commitments are non-binding until Wednesday, widely known as national signing day.

    "When he committed to Nebraska, the type of people we are, we commit," DeAntona said. "We stopped his recruiting. He had other options then, but now we are in a tough spot. This is very disappointing, and to me it's unethical, particularly to do it to a kid who's been committed that long."

    Nebraska coaches are prohibited under NCAA rules from commenting on prospects until signing day.

    Bodtmann, after a senior-season injury, lost weight and struggled to match his level of play from a year earlier. In addition, the Huskers face a numbers crunch to accommodate a sizeable class of newcomers and deserving walk-ons like place-kicker Alex Henery after losing only 16 seniors on scholarships.

    NU coaches have worked extensively to help find Bodtmann a scholarship elsewhere — so far, without success.

    "That and a couple dimes will get you a cup of coffee," DeAntona said. "I always respected Nebraska and what they stood for. But obviously, there's a big question mark in my mind now, and there should be in other peoples' minds, too."

    DeAntona said Bodtmann did nothing to lose Nebraska's trust.

    "He's an all-star player with a 1,050 SAT, a 3.7 GPA, and he's never in trouble," the coach said.

    His departure leaves the Huskers with 20 known pledges.
