Nebraska hosts second recruiting junior day; Huskers offensive install nearly complete
Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Another big day
Nebraska hosted its second junior day in two weeks on Saturday and the reviews were just as good as the first. Thomas Grayson, a 3-star running back from Oklahoma, was one of the recruits in attendance and he spoke highly of his time with coach Scott Frost and running backs coach Ryan Held.

Offensive coordinator Troy Walters shared the good news after practice No. 7 that the Huskers are nearly finished with an offensive install. From here, it’s all about cleaning things up.
With that said, Walters also has no intention of Nebraska being average under his watch.
What we learned
Nebraska’s second full week of spring practice taught us plenty more about Frost’s team, including which inside linebackers are standing out and how far along the defense is.
A small improvement
Wondering how improved Nebraska will be in 2018? According to CBS, Frost and the Huskers are looking at a two-game improvement over the four-win 2017 season.
A home for fullbacks
Curious where fullback Ben Miles and the others on Nebraska’s roster might fall? Look no further than special teams, where players may find a new home.
A teacher at the core
Frost may be the head coach, but he’s also a leader and a teacher. His role as a teacher is especially intriguing as he works to turn around Nebraska.
