The Husker football team hit the field on Saturday for the first time following Fan Day, which took place on Friday. Over 6,500 fans turned out for the event. The next day was all business for the 11th ranked football squad.
One of the main topics covered with head coach Bo Pelini during his media Q & A, was the status of freshman quarterback Bubba Starling. Starling was selected fifth overall by the Kansas City Royals in June’s Major League Baseball Draft and must decide between football and baseball by the Aug. 15 MLB signing deadline. Sean Callahan from HuskerInsider.com has more on Bubba.
True freshman Jamal Turner made many take notice, when he took some snaps at quarterback, but Pelini pointed out that Turner is a receiver first and quarterback second.
“Jamal is obviously a multi-talented guy,” Pelini said. “He’s receiver first, but we’re working him some at quarterback. Kind of the same plan we had with him during the spring.”
