The 50 Huskers to Know returns for the 2011 spring season! We count down the players you absolutely have to watch heading into spring football, culminating with No. 1 during NU's spring break.

The spring list, remember, is about players who are currently in the program, with an emphasis on redshirt freshmen and sophomores who might not have played much yet; in the fall, you'll see a list with more projected starters and incoming contributing recruits.

Not included on this list is wide receiver Khiry Cooper, who spends the spring with the Husker baseball team.

No. 22 Linebacker Sean Fisher

This junior out of Millard North has battled several different injuries since his arrival at NU in 2008. Fisher flashed glimpses of his considerable potential at times during the 2009 season – when he was a redshirt freshman – but a broken leg and torn ankle ligaments suffered in 2010 fall camp create a question of health. Has Fisher just been unlucky – or is he injury-prone? We'll see. Fisher said he's not quite 100 percent yet because of rehabbing the ankle.

If healthy, Fisher could be one of the Nebraska's more versatile defenders. He's still 6-6, 235, after all, and playing linebacker. Folks who question Fisher's speed are mistaken; he's plenty fast, especially in lateral pursuit. He needs to take on blockers and ballcarriers with a lower center of gravity so he doesn't get knocked back. Ultimately, he could be a very interesting outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Of course, Nebraska doesn't run that.
