Nebraska football coach Mike Riley says the running back position is wide open as spring drills progress. Senior Terrell Newby rushed for 765 yards in 2015 while sophomore Devine Ozigbo had 265 yards. Mikale Wilbon has shined this spring after appearing in four games as a freshman.
“I kind of expected what we would get from Newby and with what Devine did last year and how he finished I had a good feeling about that”, said Riley. “The pleasant part has been Wilbon. He fights right into the mode with those guys and I am excited about that.”
The Huskers return to the practice field on Tuesday. The Red-White Spring Game is April 16.
