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. 23 Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa

Why did this kid burn his redshirt as a freshman? We're still trying to figure that out. Apparently, it was important for this California native to get a year of seasoning so he could prepare to start in 2011. Considering how rarely Enunwa played last year – and the fact that Tim Beck is changing the offense anyway – Ted Gilmore and Shawn Watson may have effectively created another Niles Paul situation. Paul should have been a senior this year – if Bill Callahan hadn't chosen to burn his redshirt in 2007 catching a few stop patterns. Enunwa will have the same dilemma.

His measurables – 6-foot-2, 215 pounds – are pretty enviable. His hands – at least in the brief glimpses we got last year – aren't so much. Perhaps that changes in 2011. NU *should* throw the ball more. Enunwa could be the team's No. 2 target – or its No. 5 target. That's up to wide receivers coach Rich Fisher to figure it out.

See all 50 Huskers! No. 50, No. 49, No. 48, No. 47, No. 46, No. 45, No. 44, No. 43, No. 42, No. 41, No. 40, No. 39, No. 38, No. 37, No. 36, No. 35, No. 34, No. 33, No. 32, No. 31, No. 30, No. 29, No. 28, No. 27, No. 26, No. 25, No. 24
