Nebraska had a dependency on junior college players under Bill Callahan, maybe to a fault, but there wasn't anyone that wasn't excited to get Ricky Henry back to Lincoln. A non-qualifier from the class of 2006, Henry was placed at Wahpeton (N.D.) North Dakota State College of Science and is set to once again become a Husker. Coach Mike Shafer, Henry's position coach, has high praise for Henry.

Junior college is what it is. For some it's an obstacle which they have to overcome and for others it's an opportunity. For former Omaha Burke standout Ricky Henry, it could have been both. But he's ready to get on with his life as a Husker.

The road wasn't supposed to be as long as it's been from Omaha (Nebr.) Burke to Lincoln as it's been for Ricky Henry. Out of high school, Henry missed qualifying with his 2006 class and was placed at Wahpeton (N.D.) North Dakota State College Of Science. It sounds like Henry though is ready to start making the turn back to Lincoln.

There's been some change-over on the North Dakota State College of Science's football coaching staff. Newly hired Chuck Parsons was promoted from defensive coordinator to take over the head coaching duties and he's hit the ground running. This year he has several talented players and one has become one of the most sought-after prospects in the country.

Nebraska has gone out and found a couple of very good lineman growing in their own backyard this year. Ricky Henry is a solid lineman from Omaha (Nebr.) Burke and is a standout on both sides of the ball. His future in college though looks to be on the offensive side of the ball at either guard or center.
