 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Changing positions on the fly is never a simple proposition. Nebraska redshirt freshman linebacker Nick Henrich is doing just that as camp proceeds and game preparations take shape for Saturday's season opener against Ohio State. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder has been working at outside linebacker for a couple of weeks at least and, according to his coaches, he's picking it up quickly. The reason for the late switch is two-fold: NU has question marks outside and is a little bit more settled inside with seniors Collin Miller and Will Honas, and sophomore Luke Reimer forming a likely three-man rotation. Not only that, but the staff feels like it needs Henrich involved, plain and simple.

"I think, first off, he's a smart kid that can take coaching, and just overall he's a football player," defensive coordinator Erik Chinander said. "No matter where you put him, no matter what position you're going to put him in, he's a football player. He understands spacing, he understands leverage, he understands assignment and he's a tough kid. "He loves Nebraska, first and foremost, he loves the game of football, so he's going to do whatever he has to do to get on the field. Whether that's learn a new position midweek or study it from the day he got here. Inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud said that Henrich was on pace to have a significant role last year as a true freshman before he was bit by the injury bug. The Omaha Burke graduate was limited to one game - he played primarily special teams against Wisconsin in November - and continued to deal with some injury issues this offseason. - Lincoln Journal Star
