LINCOLN, Neb. - The Nebraska spring game will be held this Saturday, putting an end to the Huskers 15 spring practices.
So who's stocked soar the most? Big Red Report publisher Josh Harvey breaks it down in the video above.
Tanner Farmer, OG - The redshirt sophomore set an offseason game plan after a discussion with offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh. It included a return to the sport of wrestling, meaning he would slim down. After losing 40-pounds, Farmer is looking more like the high school All-American we expected coming out of high school. As of late Farmer has been receiving first-team reps and we fully expect him to be starting this fall. Whether that is over Dylan Utter or Paul Thurston remains to be seen.
Khalil Davis, DT - The redshirt freshman received first-team reps during the Huskers' scrimmage last Saturday with the absence of senior Greg McMullen. Davis was a three-star prospect coming out of high school, compared to his twin brother Carlos, who was a four-star player. Most figured Carlos would have the quicker impact in Lincoln, but right now it appears Khalil is closer to PT. The Missouri product said he felt he grew more as a player in the spring than all last year.
