The Nebraska Football team completed its fifth practice of the spring on Tuesday. Head coach Scott Frost said it’s the best one he’s seen yet.
Frost has made it a goal for this team to get better every day they’re on the field, which makes their work for the rest of the week a little more challenging.
When it comes to pointing out specific improvements, Frost said he’s seen growth across the board.
On Tuesday, four players who came to Nebraska in January from the junior college ranks spoke to the media. Frost pointed out all eight of the early enrollees as players who have made a splash this spring.
Sophomore safety Deontai Williams came over from Jones County Junior College in Mississippi. Williams said just one season at the ju-co level has prepared him better for what he’s doing now.
Junior receiver Mike Williams came over from East Mississippi Community College, and that experience has made him value the sport football even more.
Another player with JUCO ties is junior linebacker Will Honas, who came over from Butler Community College in Kansas. Honas has already stood out as a leader both in the weight room and on the field, despite being new on campus.
Frost says Honas has shown all of the necessary physical traits of being a star. All, but one.
Nebraska will practice again on Thursday.
