He plays at Scripps Ranch high in the second highest classification in California. The second, 6’3 230 pound linebacker Chris Williams from Abilene, Texas. Williams was the Class 5a defensive player of the year as a junior and is ranked the 13th best inside linebacker in the country by Rivals.com
Back to our current corp of linebackers for this Saturday’s game at Iowa State. Head coach Bo Pelini said Cody Glenn and Phillip Dillard will play tomorrow. Also, cornerback Anthony Blue returned to practice for the first time since tearing his ACL in winter conditioning. Pelini said Blue’s recovery is ahead of schedule, and he should be full speed for winter conditioning and spring ball.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for assistant head coach and offensive line coach Barney Cotton. In between his stints at Nebraska he was the offensive coordinator for the Cyclones for four seasons. He helped them to an Independence Bowl win in his first season there. Cotton not getting too sentimental about the game. He said he make shake some hands, but it’s all business before the game.
