Rahmir Johnson will perhaps have the most to prove. Again, it comes down to a crowded position group. With Wandale Robinson and Dedrick Mills also looking to make names for themselves, Johnson will have to stand out from the rest of the running backs.
There is no doubt that Johnson has talent. He rushed for 1,334 yards and 20 touchdowns. In total, he had 24 touchdowns on the year for Bergen Catholic High School. As college coaches will be quick to tell you, high school hype means nothing. Especially when there are two other running backs at the position that are equally as talented as Williams is, he certainly has his work cut out for him. Although he is only a freshman, this is a great opportunity for him to be able to make an impact in the running game. This is a situation where he could take advantage of an opportunity that could put them in a good position for the rest of his career at Nebraska.
This will be another battle that will be exciting to watch come training camp. This is probably the deepest to the running back position has been in quite some time for Nebraska football. Each of the three running backs on the roster could start. That is a great problem to have, as the depth should be welcome. Injuries or something else could derail one of the running backs and that will require one of them to step up. For now, Johnson needs to fill that role and prove to the coaches that he is worthy of a roster spot.
