Moore's growth continues

Wide receiver Alonzo Moore looked good in Nebraska's spring game. It sounds like he's even playing better this camp.

LINCOLN, Neb. - If Nebraska assistant coach Rich Fisher word's are true, a lot of fans are going to be excited to see redshirt freshman Alonzo Moore this season.

After impressing in the spring game, Moore is supposedly looking even better this camp.

"I would say with a guy like Alonzo, the growth between spring football and now is astronomical," said Fisher. "Not so much physical, but just the understanding. The game can slow down for you a bit once you understand what's going on and you see the big picture. When you play with that tunnel vision and really only focus on what's going on in front of you, you really don't understand exactly what's going.

"He's really applied himself. You can tell. You come out, study the information, you know the information, and you can let your athleticism take over."

One of the biggest question marks with Moore's recruitment, who decided to go with Nebraska at the very last minute, was what position he would play.

With him likely making an impact this year at wide receiver, it appears the coaching staff picked right.

"Ultimately at the end of the day, everything we do is as a staff," said Fisher, who lobbied for Louisiana native. "We sat down and looked what position was best for Alonzo to help our football team.

"As you can see we are pretty deep in the secondary. We are pretty talented at wide receiver as well, but we are going to need a lot of guys on the perimeter helping us play. I like to rotate quite a few guys. He's in the mix to get on the field if he keeps preparing and keeps working like he is.

"He's long and fast, he's physical, smart, and makes plays. I can live with that."
