    That’s great that Yusef Wade received a walk-on offer from NU. Does it look like that’s the offer he’ll take if he doesn’t get another D-IA offer? It may not be a scholarship, but he’d be on the team and he’d be given the chance to play and earn a scholarship eventually. Can’t ask for much more than that!

    Wade will have a tough decision to make if no D-1A offer comes his way–and time is running short. How he feels about the coaches and environments at the D-1AA or even the D-2 that he visits over the next few weeks will help to make up his mind.

    Wade will have to weigh a free education and easier playing opportunity and being a big fish in a small ocean to being at home in Lincoln, the hardships and bruises–mentally and physically–of a walk-on scout team player. But the rewards he would reap if he endures could be tremendous. The Huskers are back, a lot big bowl games ahead and maybe a national title game or two within reach during his next five years. Graduate and live right–being an ex-Husker can play huge dividends in his post playing day career.

    No right or wrong decision here.
