— The Huskers were without Tre Bryant
, Bryan Reimers
, Mick Stoltenberg
, and Keyan Williams
— In Stoltenberg’s absence, Deontre Thomas
practiced at nose tackle with the top group. He was followed by Damion Daniels
. Peyton Newell
has worked a lot at defensive end this week, with Daishon Neal
dropping down to the third team.
— Offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh
was again unhappy with his group’s consistency on Thursday. In particular, David Knevel
, who Cavanaugh was a little disappointed by on Thursday. However, Cavanaugh was also quick to point out that Knevel has otherwise had a very strong camp at this point, but wants to see the senior finish it out.
— Tanner Farmer
is the No. 1 right guard at the moment. Boe Wilson
is behind him, though could potentially play left guard if needed. Matt Farniok
is also getting some work at guard.
— Brendan Jaimes has stood out to Cavanaugh among the freshmen. The tackle from Texas caught Cavanaugh’s attention on film as a high school because of his athleticism and that’s been as advertised thus far. He’s headed toward a redshirt, but the staff is pleased.
