Ty Robinson ready to make impact on Husker defensive line

Robinson, a redshirt freshman, will likely play multiple positions for the Huskers this season. The Arizona native said he learned a lot while playing behind NFL Draft picks Carlos and Khalil Davis. 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Nebraska has a tall task in replacing three NFL defensive lineman. However, position coach Tony Tuioti is confident the Huskers can be even deeper this season with the young talent they already have.

Ty Robinson is a big reason for that confidence. Tuioti feels he’s ready to make a huge step forward after playing in three games last year.

“He’s hungry to come out and be able to play for us. Expecting a lot out of him, and he’s expecting a lot out of himself,” Tuioti said. “For him, it’s just the live experience. He’s got the talent, he’s got the size. For a big man, he can move pretty well. So when it gets in live game situations, he’s got to continue to grow and get used to that tempo and pace, because it’s hard to replicate that in practice.”

Robinson, a redshirt freshman, will likely play multiple positions for the Huskers this season. The Arizona native said he learned a lot while playing behind NFL Draft picks Carlos and Khalil Davis.

“It finally made me realize I wasn’t in high school anymore, playing against these grown men. And I also realized I can’t really rely on just my talent anymore,” Robinson said. “It’s a lot more technique, and knowing what’s going on and and what’s going to happen. It definitely helped me open my eyes up to see the bigger picture of what I needed to get better at.”

Robinson and the Huskers kick off the season at Ohio State on Oct. 24.
