Falck arrived in Lincoln before the 2020 season after beginning his career at South Dakota. He had a solid career with the Coyotes, totaling 70 catches for 790 yards and two touchdowns from 2016-19.
Last season, Falck made four starts and caught at least one pass in seven of his eight games. He scored a touchdown against Illinois and made five grabs in Nebraska’s victory over Purdue. He also blocked a punt vs. the Boilermakers.
“He’s only been here for a year, but our other guys look at him as a leader because of how hard he works,” Lubick said of Falck on Wednesday night, via the Journal Star. “He’s kind of embraced that role, especially in the summertime when coaches, we’re limited in what we can do. He’s done a good job of organizing workouts with those guys and those guys listen to him.”
Liewer is entering his redshirt junior season and committed to the Huskers out of high school. He appeared in games for the first time in 2020, catching three passes for 22 yards and a score.
He was also Nebraska’s Scout Team Player of the Year in 2018.
