Nebraska Early Enrollee Derrion Grim Is Focused Early In His Career At Nebraska

Nebraska wide receiver coach Keith Williams gave Derrion Grim some advice going into his senior year of high school. It paid off.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska hasn’t even practiced 10 times this spring, but Nebraska freshman early enrollee Derrion Grim has impressed the Huskers’ coaching staff.

Grim, a three-star wide receiver out of California is already taking first-team reps with the absence of wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp (groin) and Stanley Morgan (groin).

“He’s a focused young man. He reminds me a lot of Stan (Morgan) in terms of his focus and attention to detail,” said Nebraska wide receiver coach Keith Williams. “He’s focused here everyday, he doesn’t joke around, he’s in his playbook. I’m really excited about him.”

We shouldn’t be surprised. Production doesn’t always translate over to the next level, but in 2015 Grim had 1,928 receiving yards and 34 touchdowns, both California single-season state records. 

Grim credits a lot of his success his senior year to Williams. The second-year wide receiver coach at Nebraska didn’t have advice that was too difficult.

“Quit being tackled.”
