New Husker receivers coach Matt Lubick inherits bare cupboard for first spring
By Evan Bland / World-Herald staff writer Mar 2, 2020 

 

Scott Frost tells the story that when he arrived at Nebraska in December 2017, he and his staff inherited just four scholarship receivers. They prefer to carry 10 or 11.

After Monday’s announcement involving JD Spielman and Jaevon McQuitty, the Huskers again stand at just four scholarship receivers   LINK

 

=========================================  

 

10 or 11 scholie receivers?   Wow, that seems like a lot.

One of those freshman is a 5 star talent and one of the guys we are bringing in is a Jr.

So just curious:   how many Frost scholarship WRs since he started have we given?   Seems like he has to have more than just 4 meaning quite a few have left in just 26 months?

Manning and Betts better be ready to rumble this fall 

 

Yep. Bottom line.

 

If they are we could potentially be just fine. But if they're not...

Ooof. I can imagine the meltdown if those two didn't qualify.  I read this week that Manning was really close with Walters also, thought that was interesting.  More work for Lubick there.

I will add Atlanta to this mix.  If he will meet his own desire and expectation then this isn't an issue.  I will throw in McCaffrey here as well.  Let's see these guys step in a fill the void ... rather than crumble under the first sign of adversity in this season.

Do we know if there's some kind of legitimate ongoing concerns about Manning's eligibility for 2020?

I don't know of anything concrete no, just assurances from his JUCO HC that he is on track to make it sometime this summer.  What is that guy really going to say though if he isn't? Haven't heard a recent update on Betts.

Without JD, Wandale is the only returning WR to catch a TD on the entire team...Manning needs to come in with that beast mode mentality

There are some decent options in portal right now, but with the potential change in transfer rule that could come in April, it's probably best to wait until after Spring. There will be more players looking to transfer at that point anyways.

but, but , but....look at our recruiting rankings :facepalm:  Seriously, you have to develop young talent.  If guys were that good and that good right out of HS, they are probably not showing up on our rosters anyway.  In year 3 to not have anyone at WR is a bad situation.  Hoping (and praying) some true freshmen step up and step in is KooL Aid tainted glasses talking.  What about our TE's ?  I thought this offense was supposed to utilize the TE's and I have yet to really see it.  We have a boat load of them, but never really used them.  Austin Allen in the slot is a match up problem for most LB's but we don't go to it.  Might have to stop trying to pound that square peg into the round hole and figure out how to utilize what we do have better than we have.  But, I'm no coach and Im sure the staff has it all figured out already.  Could make for an interesting Spring Game to have the same 4 guys playing on both offensive groups.
