Breaking Down Week 3 of Husker Camp

There has been several things coming out of camp this week. Nebraska will only have one more week of fall camp. The majority of the week will be game prep for the upcoming first game against Southern Miss. Here is the break down from week 3.

*The defensive backfield is as deep as any group on the entire team. Andrew Green currently has one of the corner back positions locked up at this point. The other spot is still somewhat up in the air. All though sophomore Joshua Mitchell has impressed, and has openly admitted  his lack of game film study hurt him in the past. Mitchell said he is learning how to better study game tape under new secondary coach, Terry Joseph.

*Junior college transfer cornerback Mohammad Seisay injured his ankle in camp. Seisay has been limited, and is still a little nicked up, but is expected to be back to 100% by kick off against Southern Miss.

*Bo Pelini said that he expects everyone to be available against Southern Miss. on Saturday. The Huskers have seen a few minor injuries in camp, but will be at 100% for week one of the season.

*Justin Jackson is the clear cut No. 1 center, for now. It looked as if redshirt junior Cole Pensick had the center position locked up at the end of last week. Jackson, a former walk on, has taken that top spot from Pensick at the end of week 3. This battle may go all the way till the end of camp.

*Auburn cornerback transfer, Jonathan Rose and true freshman Jared Afalava have both been cleared by the NCAA, and have arrived in Lincoln. Every member of the 2012 recruiting class has arrived in Lincoln, and are eligible.

*True freshman Alonzo Moore is seeing time at wide receiver. Most people expected him to play defensive back.

*The first time Nebraska did any prepwork for Southern Miss was Thursday.

*Avery Moss, Aaron Curry, and Imani Cross will all see playing time at their respective positions against Southern Miss acording to head coach Bo Pelini.

*One thing Pelini has said continuously this week, that he has not said a lot in the past,  he feels like his team is ahead of schedule in some areas. He did say they still need to work on some things in other areas. Pelini said last Saturday that he feels good about where the offense, and defense are at this time.

*The coaching staff has placed a lot of younger guys in rolls where they could be in a starting position just to see how they respond. The coaches have said that a lot of the true freshmen have responded well.

*True freshman, Tommy Armstrong and redshirt sophomore Brion Carnes are in a battle for the No. 2 quarterback position. When asked if Armstrong would redshirt this season, Pelini said if he is good enough to play he will play this year.
