Nebraska staff visits RB Maurice Washington; Huskers spring game update

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.

Making a visit

Nebraska’s staff would love to secure a commitment from 4-star running back Maurice Washington in the 2018 recruiting class. That’s why it was no surprise coach Scott Frost and his staff made the trek to Texas to visit Washington.

A spring game update

Are you unable to make it to Memorial Stadium on April 21 for the annual Red-White Spring Game? Don’t worry, because it looks like the Big Ten Network will carry the event live.

Getting through it

Iowa football is more than familiar with rhabdomyolysis, having 13 players suffer from the condition seven years ago. With that in mind, former Hawkeyes defensive back Jordan Bernstine knows the Huskers suffering the same condition now will get through it OK.

Appreciating it all

Former Nebraska defensive back Nathan Gerry isn’t taking his Super Bowl opportunity with the Philadelphia Eagles for granted. Instead, he is appreciating it all.


While Nebraska’s recruiting class is being finalized, Huskers fans are curious about the offensive line. With only one offensive line commit in the class so far, could there be more by National Signing Day? Land of 10’s Chris Bumbaca took a look at the situation.

Taste test

In another edition of ‘Tastes Like Home,’ the Nebraska basketball team tried kangaroo jerky. The reactions are as entertaining as ever.
