Husker Football: Ameer Abdullah - Cover Boy And All-American

As if Husker football hasn’t gotten enough love on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, running back Ameer Abdullah and defensive end Randy Gregory have been named to Dave Bartoo’s College Football Matrix’s All-American team.

Abdullah and Gregory both also make first team All-Big Ten appearances as does safety Corey Cooper and Kenny Bell plays a dual role as a wide receiver/kick returner.


Linebackers Michael Rose and David Santos grace the second team list.

Abdullah’s featured inside the digital magazine throughout audio and written previews of Husker football’s upcoming season, but the Heisman candidate apparently also has a mug perfect for the cover.

The spotlight isn’t new to Abdullah this preseason as he was dubbed a second team All-American by Athlon Sports and Sporting News while Gregory earned a first team spot in the latter publication. The Homewood, AL. native was also named college football’s best running back prospect by NFL draft guru Mel Kiper.

If you’d like the opportunity to check out ave Bartoo’s College Football Matrix’s digital previews, they’re available for your perusal.

Husker fans should really enjoy the content provided by audio previews of the Big Red by BTN’s Gerry DiNardo, The Bottom Line’s Mike’l Severe and former Nebraska offensive lineman Matt Vrzal. There’s also Bartoo’s systematic guide to the Big Red’s win total and yours truly runs down the positional summaries.
