Samori Toure ready to prove himself with Huskers

"I've always had that chip on my shoulder coming out of high school that I knew I could play against the best of the best at a big school," Toure said. 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Samori Toure isn’t a guy that likes to jump into a new situation and “start bossing people around.” He wants his game to do the talking.

“You’ve got to build relationships first and you’ve got to prove yourself first on the field,” Toure said on Monday.

Toure is a decorated wide receiver. He had 155 receptions for 2,488 yards and 20 touchdowns in three years at Montana at the FCS level. But now, as a grad transfer with the Huskers, he’s ready to make a splash at the biggest stage.

“I’ve always had that chip on my shoulder coming out of high school that I knew I could play against the best of the best at a big school,” Toure said.

He’ll have his chances. Nebraska’s wide receiver woes have been well-documented. And with the departures of Wan’Dale Robinson and Kade Warner, there’s very little experience returning to Lincoln in 2021.

Still, Toure is going to be patient. He’s ready to let his ability shine on the field.

“I’m here. I’m excited to show that I can (play).”
