Enunwa not content

He's having his best season to date, but senior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa isn't satisfied.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Senior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is in midst of his best season ever at Nebraska. Through four games, the California native has 202 yards and five touchdowns, proving to be a threat in the red zone.

But don't ask Enunwa if he's satisfied with the increase in production.

"Knowing what I can do, I wouldn't grade myself very high," said Enunwa. "There are some things still left out there. Stats wise, I've done better than I have in the past. But based on my performance on the field and things I can fix up, I wouldn't grade myself very high.

"I can change up different things in my routes. Definitely blocking-wise there are some things I need to work on. There's nothing that I've perfected at all, so I can work on just about everything."

Speaking with reporters on Monday afternoon, Enunwa was asked the differences between catching a pass from senior quarterback Taylor Martinez, compared to his backups Ron Kellogg III and Tommy Armstrong Jr. Martinez is questionable this weekend after missing action against South Dakota State two weeks ago.

"A pass is a pass. When you go out there, you don't think about that kind of stuff because then it starts getting into your head," said Enunwa. "I go out there and if the ball is in the air, it's my ball. I don't want to be worried about it being from this guy or that guy. Ron (Kellogg III) throws the ball harder than the rest of them, and I used to think about that too much. When you start thinking that he's going to throw it really hard and he throws it soft, it's unexpected. I just go out there and if the ball's there, I'm going to catch it, regardless of who's throwing it."

Through four games, Illinois is giving up 24.8 points per game and over 270 yards in the air. The Illini can be thrown against, but Enunwa sees a formidable foe on Saturday.

"I've watched every game they've played this year. Their defense has some athletes out there," said Enunwa. "They play different types of coverage. It's going to be a fun game for the offense. Obviously, I don't know about the defense, but the offense will do what we can."
