At Nebraska, junior-college transfer Randy Gregory has created a lot of buzz among fans hopeful he can strengthen the defensive line.
“It will be fun to watch,” Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini said. “He has a lot of talent, he has a good work ethic, and I think he’s a pretty instinctive guy who understands football. I like the prospect. He’s set up to have a good year. Is he going to be the finished product from day one? No, that’s a little unrealistic. But he could be a presence for us.”
Minnesota coach Jerry Kill said freshman Donovahn Jones could play a major role in his building project. Jones started out as a quarterback but moved to receiver when it became apparent he wouldn’t beat out Philip Nelson. Jones is 6-foot-3 and has a 40-inch vertical jump.
“He’s too good an athlete to not have on the field,” Kill said. “He’s been in the learning progression at receiver and we’re trying to get him coached up as fast as we can.”
