Perhaps the biggest news coming out of Nebraska’s fall camp is the performance of junior college transfer defensive end Randy Gregory. A lack of a consistent pass rush is the most pernicious of problems plaguing Nebraska’s defense recently, and Gregory has been heralded as one of the premier pass-rushing junior college transfers of the season.
But would he actually be able to perform as advertised? Early signs point to yes. As quoted by Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald, head coach Bo Pelini offered these words when asked about Gregory:
Randy's looked good the first two days. Obviously we are practicing in shorts — and obviously he's swimming in it a little bit mentally — but he can play. He showed up in shape. He hasn't struggled at all as far as his conditioning. He reported at 255 pounds and he's been ready to go. His attitude's been great. That's all you can ask.
Sure, it’s early. But if you are worried about Nebraska’s front four and pass rush in 2013, that’s music to your ears.
