  09/23/20 - Luke McCaffreyrFr/2024, Nebraska, 6-2, 200 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  McCaffrey might not be in line to start at quarterback, but many are excited to see just how head coach Scott Frost and company decide to use him. Package player? Spot duty? One thing that's clear: McCaffrey is an explosive player and NU needs as many of those as possible. McCaffrey, remember, didn't play quarterback full time until his senior year of high school, which only adds to the intrigue considering now he has additional months to add strength and also to further immerse himself into quarterback play. - Lincoln Journal Star

  09/16/20 - Ethan PiperrFr/2023, Nebraska, 6-3, 300 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  Eight Nebraska football players announced Wednesday they have dismissed their lawsuit filed Aug. 27 against the Big Ten Conference. The news comes on the same day the conference announced it would attempt to start a football season on Oct. 23-24. The league postponed the season Aug. 11 amid concerns about playing safely during the coronavirus pandemic. The players' lawsuit sought a reversal from the league on its decision, claiming it harms their career development opportunities and has a direct and significant impact on businesses in Lancaster County and the greater Nebraska area.

However, in a statement released through their attorneys, the players said, "We cannot adequately express the gratitude we feel for the support we have received from Nebraskans and from others throughout the Big Ten Conference. We believe football is something that brings people together. It is immensely important to us that Coach (Scott) Frost never stopped fighting for us. "Although he was not part of this lawsuit in any way, we are proud of his efforts inside the Big Ten Conference to advocate for us and our team. We are proud to be in the Big Ten Conference and would like to thank everyone for standing behind us when it wasn't easy." The eight players in the lawsuit were Brant Banks, Brig Banks, Garrett Snodgrass, Garrett Nelson, Ethan Piper, Noa Pola-Gates, Alante Brown and Jackson Hannah. They were represented by Mike Flood of Jewell & Collins in Norfolk, as well as Pat Cooper and Mark Laughlin of Fraser Stryker Law Firm in Omaha. - Lincoln Journal Star

  08/22/20 - Oliver MartinrJr/2022, Nebraska, 6-0, 200 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Oliver Martin is on the move again. The former Michigan wide receiver has transferred from Iowa to Nebraska, according to 247Sports. Martin, who entered the transfer portal earlier this month, is currently listed in the Cornhuskers' student directory and will reportedly be a walk-on. The Iowa City native was one of three four-star receivers Michigan signed in its 2017 class. He redshirted as a freshman before appearing in 13 games in 2018 in a reserve role. Martin caught 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown but transferred to Iowa after the season. - Ann Arbor News

  08/09/20 - Oliver MartinrJr/2022, Nebraska, 6-0, 200 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Oliver Martin's transfer to Iowa and subsequent eligibility ruling was arguably the biggest Hawkeye football storyline of the 2019 offseason. One year later, the former 4-star wide receiver is on the move again. Martin has reportedly entered the transfer portal for the second time in as many years, according to reports from 247Sports and other outlets. The former Iowa City West standout ends his brief Hawkeye career with five catches for 28 yards and one touchdown. Following a heightened recruitment as one of the Midwest's top 2017 prospects, Martin hasn't found the same success in college. A Michigan commitment led to a redshirt season in 2017, followed by one active year in Ann Arbor and then a surprising transfer to Iowa. The thought was coming home would be a welcomed change for Martin. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  08/07/20 - Luke McCaffreyrFr/2024, Nebraska, 6-2, 200 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  There obviously isn't as much hype attached to Martinez this year. What's more, Nebraska redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey will try to push Martinez for the starting job after playing well in four games last season. "Luke's hell on wheels ...He just a bright young cat who has a tremendous work ethic," the coach said. "He's done really well in the offseason. Cleaned some things up with his stroke that we've been working on since he arrived. That's getting better and better and better. "The little bit that we were able to work together in spring ball, I was pleased with his development with regards at least to his stroke."

Verduzco clearly appreciates McCaffrey's enthusiasm for the sport, mentioning how well the Colorado native approached his temporary move to receiver late last season. "Hell, he was ready to do it," the coach said. "He knew all the routes, he knew all the combinations, he knew all the blocking patterns that were required of him. There were a few things he wasn't really detailed in. But for the most part, he was good to go. "I told coach Frost, 'Hey, coach, if you need any of these (quarterbacks) to play receiver, they'll be ready for you." - Lincoln Journal Star

  08/06/20 - Nouredin NouiliSo/2023, Nebraska, 6-3, 285 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  Nouredin Nouili is in the clear. The Nebraska sophomore offensive lineman is immediately eligible to compete after receiving an NCAA waiver, the transfer from Colorado State announced via Twitter on Wednesday. Nouili graduated from Norris last year as an exchange student from Germany. Upon arriving in the United States, he impressed on the football field to such a degree that he picked up several scholarship offers and eventually picked CSU. Nouili adds even more depth and potential competition for the interior offensive line spots up for grabs in Greg Austin's room. The Huskers have 15 scholarship offensive linemen plus Nouili and fellow walk-on transfer Ezra Miller, who joined the program this summer after spending his redshirt season on scholarship at Iowa. - Lincoln Journal Star

For his efforts, he was named the Tom Osborne and Brook Berringer Citizenship Teams in each of the past four years and was one of the Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Award winners in 2019. On the field, Stille has played 33 games as a Husker and has 80 career tackles, including 21 for loss, and 11.5 career sacks. - Nebraska Football

  07/26/20 - Nick HenrichrFr/2024, Nebraska, 6-4, 220 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  Nick Henrich has now been healthy for a while, and that's a very good thing in the mind of Nebraska inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud. Henrich, the redshirt freshman and former four-star prospect out of Omaha Burke, had surgery after an injury in the spring of 2019 and only got back enough to appear against Wisconsin on special teams in mid-November. Now, though, the 6-foot-4 linebacker is healthy and trying to crack a rotation for the Huskers that starts with the senior tandem of Collin Miller and Will Honas. "It was a big disappointment not only for him but for us, too, that he got injured in spring practice (in 2019) because you saw him really start to come on when he got hurt in spring," Ruud said in an interview on the "Husker Sports Nightly" radio program, noting that at least Henrich got to keep his redshirt season. "He's had a full year or so to really recover from that surgery and he's 100% full-go.

"He's gained 25 pounds since he's been here and he's a guy I've always been extremely high on, ever since watching his high school tape. He's as advertised and now it's just a matter of him continuing to push and continuing to develop." Henrich is one of several players trying to earn playing time. Ruud says often that he'd like to have up to four players getting regular snaps and can find roles for more than that at least situationally. "(Henrich) has all the tools needed to be a really, really good football player for a long time," Ruud said. - Lincoln Journal Star

  Nebraska inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud hasn't been shy the past year in saying how much he thought of walk-on inside linebacker Joey Johnson. It appears, though, that Johnson will be continuing his college career elsewhere. The Gretna native and sophomore's name is in the NCAA transfer portal as of Friday, a source confirmed to the Journal Star. Johnson rose to the No. 2 line at inside linebacker last year and played some against Maryland, Ohio State and Northern Illinois. With Johnson at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, Ruud liked his development arc and long-term potential. - Lincoln Journal Star
