Huskers Hope Depth Can Bolster Linebacker Position

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A couple days after defensive coordinator Erik Chinander announced that Blackshirts were handed out this week to the Husker defenders, Scott Frost named those players on Thursday.

Defensive Backs Deontai Williams, Cam Taylor-Britt, Marquel Dismuke and Dicaprio Bootle, inside linbackers Collin Miller and Will Honas along with outside linebackers JoJo Domann, Caleb Tannor and Garrett Nelson. On the defensive line, Ben Stille, Ty Robinson and Damion Daniels.

Frost did echo what Chinander said on Tuesday, agreeing that the Blackshirts should be earned not given.

“I don’t want this to become Halloween, where you knock on the door to get a piece of candy,” Frost said.

Frost also mentioned the Huskers appear ready for Illinois after a big win last Saturday against Penn State.

Nebraska and the Fighting Illini kickoff at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. You can watch the game on FS1. Channel 8 will have a “Husker Power Hour” special from 10:00-11:00 a.m. to get you ready for the game as well.
