Expect Nebraska's RB Rotation To Continue

It looks like Nebraska could be in store for another rotation at the running back spot in 2016.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska head coach Mike Riley admits his offenses have usually featured a clear No. 1 tailback, but similar to 2015, Nebraska will likely have a rotation in the backfield this spring.

“Well we certainly liked the way (Terrell) Newby and (Devine) Ozibgo finished the season,” said Riley. “If they continue to grow and work, they should be players for us. We have liked the rotation we have used.

“Newby is going to be a little different than Devine, so that would be a nice combination for us. Now we are looking for different players…We are really looking to see what (Mikale) Wilbon does. Wilbon definitely has some ability. He showed some spark last year. I think he’s been working really hard.”

Riley also mentioned former four-star prep Adam Taylor is “now recovered” from his ACL injury in 2014.

 “We could develop into some really great depth at that position,” said Riley.
