Gabe Ervin Jr. began his freshman season in 2021 as a key piece of Nebraska’s backfield. Unfortunately, that season was abruptly cut short.

During the loss to Oklahoma, Ervin went down with what would prove to be a season-ending knee injury. At the time, Ervin had rushed for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns across 4 appearances.

Entering 2022, he’s looking to be back to full speed. During a recent interview with Jessica Coody on Huskers Radio Network, Ervin announced that he’s bulked up 10 pounds to around 220. Ervin also declared he’s fully healthy and 100%.

The Huskers have a number of pieces back in the running back room from 2021, including Rahmir Johnson and Jaquez Yant. Nebraska also added new RBs coach Bryan Applewhite out of TCU and JUCO transfer Anthony Grant to the mix.

With Ervin back to 100%, the Huskers should be deep and talented in the backfield for Mark Whipple’s first season with the program.
