Defense wins the first day of Huskers fall camp

Huskers fall camp

The defense has its way on day 1 of fall camp

It’s a pretty tight day for media access but we’ve been able to pull some bits of information from different places about how the first day of fall camp went, and it wasn’t great for the offense.

According to linebacker Mohamed Barry, the defense was the squad that won the day with multiple turnovers. That’s par for the course in fall camp as the offense typically lags behind especially when you’re dealing with a scheme for the first time and adding a slew of new players into the mix. The takeaway? Don’t read into it on day 1 of camp.

We also heard that the intensity for the defense was full-go which coincides with what Frost echoed yesterday as an expectation from his team during fall camp.

I haven’t been able to confirm it, but from watching videos some believe that Cam Jurgens and Tre Bryant ran with the top teams today. There’s really nothing to that at this point as players are going to be mixed and matched all over the place by the staff during the first few days of camp.

That said, we’ve talked to multiple people who are quite high about the return of running back Tre Bryant so keep an eye on him as camp progresses. Frost mentioned yesterday that they may look into a redshirt for Bryant moving him to a sophomore as he only played 6 quarters of football in 2017.

If you haven’t done so already, watch the short video linked below from Huskers.com. You’ll see one heck of a one-handed catch by tight end Autin Allen who should be a factor at TE this season.

    Frost actually said that he didn’t think k it could happen for tre Bryant …he would need 2 seasons of injury to get another redshirt. Don’t fakenews us!!!

      That’s not what was said. Frost wasn’t aware that Tre Bryant only missed two games and commented that in order to get a 6th year a player needed to miss two full seasons. The reporter who asked the question informed Scott that Tre never used his first redshirt. Frost wasn’t aware of that and let reporters know it was news to him and to follow up with him as it would be something he would look into.

      As it stands today, Tre is TRUE junior and should be eligible to petition for last year as a redshirt year and be moved from a true junior to a redshirt sophomore. He would then also be able to apply for a medical redshirt in the future (a 6th year of eligibility) if there was a reason to do so.

      The article is correct that Tre could get back last years eligibility if he applied for a standard redshirt since he has not used one.
