Ronald Thompkins Named No. 2 Running Back

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Dedrick Mills is Nebraska’s top running back or “bell cow” as position coach Ryan Held put it during a Zoom press conference on Tuesday. We now know who will be taking the majority of the snaps behind Mills.

Held named Ronald Thompkins the Huskers’ No. 2 running back on Tuesday. The redshirt freshman missed all of last season with an injury he suffered while in high school.

Still, Held is confidence in Thompkins’ ability to make an immediate impact after his long journey back to the field.

“I know he’s really excited,” Held said.
