Ndamukong Suh Signs With Nike

“The 2009 college National Player of the Year Ndamukong Suh has signed a deal with Nike. The company based out of Oregon announced Suh, a Portland native, signs with the hometown company via a press release.

Suh is expected to be the top player selected in the 2010 NFL Draft. Here is the release from Nike:

NIKE BUILDS ON ITS OUTSTANDING FOOTBALL HERITAGE, SIGNS TOP PRO FOOTBALL PROSPECT SUH

Standout Defensive Lineman Ndamukong Suh is Newest Nike Athlete

Nike today announced a partnership with 2009 AP National Player of the Year and top NFL prospect Ndamukong Suh. One of the nation’s premiere collegiate defenders, Suh is projected to be drafted at the top of the first round of the 2010 NFL draft this summer.

Suh will join selected Nike football athletes participating in a webcast Friday, February 5, kicking off the 2010 Nike High School Combine Tour (Players will be available to media during webcast  — press alert to follow). Various Nike athletes will be attending the combines, which are open to high school football players at any level across the country, free of charge.

The 6-4, 300-pound Suh was one of the most dominating defensive tackles in recent memory while starring at Nebraska. At the conclusion of the 2009 season, the Huskers senior was recognized for numerous accolades and awards including a consensus first-team All-American selection, Defensive Player of the Year honors in addition to being named a Heisman Trophy finalist. Suh also became only the second player in Big 12 history to earn both the Defensive Player and Lineman of the Year awards in the same season.

Suh tallied 85 total tackles (24 for loss), 12.0 sacks and 1 interception during his senior campaign. Many analysts are predicting Suh will be the top overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Born in Portland, Ore., Suh was a prep star at nearby Grant High School, so his teaming up with Beaverton, Ore.-based Nike is a natural homecoming.

He joins a top roster of football of NFL Nike athletes, including: LaDainian Tomlinson, Troy Polamalu, Adrian Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, Tom Brady and Brian Urlacher.”

Husker VS. Texas Tech Preview and Prediction

 

Mike’s Husker Preview
Written By: “Mike”, the man-in-motion, giving us a running start on Saturday’s game.

Last year we played Tech so close because we kept their offense off the field.  I can’t remember what the time of possession numbers were, but they were largely slanted in our favor.  I haven’t seen enough consistency out of our offense to make me think we can do the same thing this year, at least not to the same degree.  I’m sure our coaches will call a similar game-plan to hopefully do the same thing this year and limit the time Tech has with the ball.  Personally, I think the success of our offense will determine the outcome of the game. 

Defensively, we are worlds better than we were last year.  Although I don’t anticipate many sacks, our front four should be able to consistently collapse the pocket and put their quarterback into tough situations.  Our secondary is playing with far less breakdowns than last year at this time and tackling a lot better too.  Tech will have lots of completions and yards, but not nearly as many big plays as a result.  With that said, I think our defense will do enough to slow their offense down and give us a chance to win.

Prediction –  If Lee and the offense struggle, it could be a long day and possibly a loss.  If Lee plays better than he did against both Virginia Tech and Missouri, and Watson calls a good game, we’ll be fine.  I’m betting on the latter.  NU – 34, TTU – 24
