50 HUSKERS TO KNOW: No. 28
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. 28 Quarterback Brion Carnes
He's taken the old No. 15 jersey of his uncle, Tommie Frazier; if this 6-foot-1, 190-pounder can have half the career, Nebraska could add a couple Big Ten titles to its wall pretty soon. Carnes comes billed as a better-than-average passer with elusive skills as a runner. He's not a 80-yard-run type of guy like Taylor Martinez, but Carnes can scramble and buy time to make throws.
We haven't seen much of Carnes since a handful of fall camp drills when his motion and delivery had a bit of a loop in it. If he's shortened that delivery and grasps the new offense coordinated by Tim Beck, Carnes can throw his name in the ring for QB in 2011.
