Our 50 Huskers to Know series returns for the fall, as we count down the key players on Nebraska’s 2010 team. Check back throughout fall camp for the countdown, and scroll to the bottom for links to the whole list.

No. 2 Prince Amukamara, 6-1, 205, CB, Sr.

Nebraska’s most physically gifted player, Amukamara is the nation’s rangiest cornerback, a guy capable of making even more plays than he did last year if his confidence can match his potential. Blessed with giant hands, a long stride and impressive instincts, Amukamara – with the help of secondary coach Marvin Sanders – has transformed himself into a leader and spokesman despite his relatively soft-spoken, easygoing nature in public.

If he does his job this year, he won’t be thrown at very often, and he’ll funnel plays toward his safeties and linebackers. A capable tackler, Amukamara is also tough on a blitz.
