Don't ask Leon Jackson how much he likes being back at his original position of running back. You are likely to get nothing but this big old grin. Yes, he's happy, perhaps as he has ever been since he arrived in Lincoln. Now, it's a matter of getting everything down. Enjoy this spring edition of sound bytes with running back Leon Jackson

Some say the move was inevitable. Leon Jackson to safety just seemed to make sense. Ironic then that it was he, a recruited running back was the one that went and asked to be moved to that side. It wasn't about a change of heart, rather him sticking to one thing he wanted to do more than anything else: Get on the field his first year.

Before the fall even arrived, people were speculating about the nation's best group of running backs for the class of 2005. Marlon Lucky, Cody Glenn and Leon Jackson, all considered to be potential stars at NU. Fall camps only started two days ago, but conversation was already gearing up. Not on who was going to beat who, rather who had yet to arrive. Fortunately for fans and I am sure to the relief of the coaches, the final piece of the backfield puzzle was cleared and practiced today.
