The Nebraska Cornhuskers linebacker corps would benefit greatly from a healthy Nick Henrich and so far that’s exactly what he is heading into fall camp.

Nick Henrich is one of those names that Nebraska Cornhuskers fans might briefly forget about when discussing the players that are going to need to make a massive impact in 2023. However, if the football team is going to get to where Matt Rhule wants to take them, the linebacker is almost certainly going to need to be a part of it.

It’s good news then that Henrich was told he’s “full go” two weeks ago. Just 18 days before Nebraska football fall camp officially starts, Henrich joins guys like Thomas Fidone on the list of players that could be incredibly reclamation projects under Matt Rhule.

Henrich was injured in the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ seventh game of the season against Purdue. Now he’s coming back and told On3’s Steve Sipple that he’s just grateful for where he is in his situation.

"“My teammates and everyone have been so supportive. It’s been great. The road to recovery has been a lot of time to just work and grind. My knee feels really, really good, and I’m itching to get back out there during (preseason) camp later this month.”"

The Nebraska football team is going to need him.

Nebraska Cornhuskers hyped about the receiver room

Speaking of guys the Huskers are going to need in order to find success, there’s been a lot of talk about Garrett McGuire and his receiver corps in 2023. According to Hail Varsity, the receivers’ coach the talented group is matching his energy and that bodes well for the coming season.

Big Ten Media Days on the horizon

The Nebraska football camp opens on July 31, just four days after media days wrap up. In addition to Matt Rhule who will speak at noon on Thursday, July 27, the Huskers are sending offensive lineman, Ethan Piper, linebacker Luke Reimer and new starting quarterback Jeff Sims.

Former Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball pitcher signs with Braves

While a handful of Husker baseball players were drafted in this past week’s MLB draft, one pitcher is going the free agent route in order to try and keep playing baseball.

Former relief ace Shay Schanaman reportedly signed with the Atlanta Braves and will try and show he belongs in professional baseball. Obviously, it’s a little more difficult to go this route, but Schamanan is going to give it his best shot.
