Ruud, Dawson Break Down NU’s Linebackers

Nebraska’s two linebacker coaches broke down their units during Sports Nightly Thursday on News Talk 900 KJSK. 

Two seniors, Collin Miller and Will Honas, are expected to start at inside linebacker.  Their coach Barrett Ruud said Miller is very intelligent and a good communicator, which Ruud said is “really essential” at that spot.  

Outside linebackers coach Mike Dawson rejoined the Huskers staff in the spring, when 13 of their 15 practices were wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic.  Because of that, Dawson said when walk-through practices start today, NU’s outside backers will have to take each rep they get “like a piece of gold.”
