With all seven top linebackers returning for the Nebraska football team depth at that position is not an issue.
One of this pushing for more playing time is junior Chris Weber. The native of Omaha says he has added more weight in an effort to handle the grind of a season.
“I felt like I was underweight last year and it is the Big Ten and you have got to be able to withstand a season”, said Weber. “A lot of teams are running the football so you have to be able to stop the run and I needed to gain some weight and muscle in the off season.”
Weber began his career as a walk on and made four starts during the 2015 season while registering 49 tackles.
The Huskers conduct their third workout of spring drills on Thursday.
