It certainly would help the Huskers if these Nebraska football players took a step up this coming season.
There are quite a few names that could be on the “3 Nebraska football players that Scott Frost and Huskers need to step up so that this team can start winning” list. This team has had such a rough time over the past few seasons that improvement must come from across the board.
So, while there are some notable names that many will point to and say they should take some strides towards improving, there are plenty of other guys that could also be better for the sake of the Nebraska football team.
Here are a few who have made an impact, but could still be a bit better.
JoJo Domann was the leading tackler for the Nebraska Cornhuskers in 2020 and he can continue to be great for the Huskers in 2021. It’s safe to say that Nebraska will need him to be good next season if Scott Frost is to remain in Lincoln.
Domann weighs in at 6-1 and 230 pounds and he’s pretty much all over the field all the time. Throughout his career, Domann has racked up 137 tackles, including 17.5 tackles for loss, while also forcing seven fumbles and recovering three more.
Nebraska’s offense has been up and down all throughout the Scott Frost era. There have been many moments where the potential of Frost’s offense has been clearly evident and there’s been quite a few games where the Huskers haven’t been able to score at all.
If that’s going to change in 2021, Nebraska will need Cameron Jurgens and the rest of the Huskers’ offensive line to be consistent in protecting Adrian Martinez and clearing paths for Nebraka’s running backs.
