Scott Frost impressed with wide receivers in recent scrimmage
Nebraska’s wide receivers have never looked better than they did during Friday’s scrimmage according to head coach Scott Frost. That could be a great sign for the offense entering the 2021 season.
Speaking with reporters on Monday, Frost said the performance from the wide receivers during Friday’s scrimmage was the best he’s seen out of the group since he’s been at Nebraska. Considering how much the offense has struggle during Frost’s run with the Huskers, the team needs to develop some playmakers.
Frost said Friday’s scrimmage was Logan Smothers best day at Nebraska. WRs had their best day at Nebraska since frost has been here. #huskers

It’s particularly impressive considering Nebraska lost top wide receiver/running back Wan’Dale Robinson left the program and transferred to Kentucky. Kade Warner also decided to hit the NCAA transfer portal, committing to Kansas State.
Last season, Nebraska ranked 12th in the B1G, averaging 23.1 points per contest. The Huskers also ranked 12th in the conference in passing offense, averaging 190.1 yards per contest through the air.
The Huskers still have a few weeks left of spring practice, hosting their spring game on Saturday, May 1. It sounds like things are looking good from the receiver room.
