LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska football team completed their fifth practice of the spring on Tuesday.
After the two-hour session, defensive coordinator Mark Banker spoke with the media.
“We are still pretty much on page one and page two. Everything has been really basic up until now,” said Banker. “Good progress. I think a number of guys have developed consistency.”
Banker was asked about the development of redshirt freshman safety Avery Anderson, a former four-star prospect, who moved from the cornerback position to safety this offseason.
“It’s coming slower than I would personally like it,” said Banker. “He needs to just consistently work on his eye discipline. That will help him out a ton. Each practice there are fewer and fewer eye discipline mistakes that he’s making. He’s great in meetings as far as learning and understanding.”
* Nebraska defensive end Alex Davis has added nearly forty pounds to his frame since hitting Nebraska’s campus last summer. Davis said he took his official visit to Nebraska weighing just 215 pounds.
* Defensive end Freedom Akinmoladun says he clearly knows he’s not the best defensive end in the Big Ten, but is working for it everyday and feels he’s a lot further ahead of where he was last season. Last year, the redshirt freshman at the time was adjusting to a new position at the college level.
