50 Huskers to Know: No. 14
So here’s NU’s equivalent of a big free agent signing, a giant, tough, hard-driving right tackle who can anchor the running game and provide a key, immediate dose of depth. It helps that Hardrick is considered the best JUCO tackle recruit in the country. Nebraska is hoping for its own version of Phil Loadholt, frankly, who anchored Oklahoma’s right side and was a key catalyst for the Sooners’ success in the running game.
We haven’t seen Hardrick in NU practice, so we won’t bestow too many hosannas on the kid, but his JUCO video shows an angry sort who can move pile - if not always with the best technique - and seems to play the position with a chip on his shoulder. Bo Pelini especially likes kids who play like they don’t know where their next meal is going to come from.
