Scott Frost didn’t mess around when he was asked about where his team needed to improve on this offseason. 

Developing depth. Especially at key position groups. 

Frost admitted throughout the season that wide receiver was one of those positions. 

However, the Huskers feel they’ve built great depth at that position in this year’s signing class, led by the duo of Darien Chase and Jamie Nance. 

“Yeah those two added with Wandale (Robinson), who’s going to be like a hybrid for us, I think is a really good start to adding to our receiving talent and depth,” Frost said. “Jamie had a great year down in Oklahoma. He can really run, I mean he can really go. I’m anxious to see what he can run a 40-yard dash in when he gets here because his 100 time is really good. He did kick returns in high school and played defense, did a lot for his high school team. He’s a great kid, we’re excited to have him.

“Darien we kind of got in on late. My first conversation was with his father, who was a special forces military guy, and we hit it off right away. Darien’s team won a state championship. I was actually at the high school the day they were having the get together to celebrate. He’s a winner. He’s playing basketball, he’s an athlete, tremendous ball skills, great kid. We needed to add to the talent depth in our receiver room, and I think we’ve had a really good start to it today.”
