Samori Toure joined the Nebraska football team and could help improve this offense considerably
It’s not a secret that Scott Frost hasn’t been able to get the Huskers’ offense rolling consistency. Along with several other aspects of its offense, the Nebraska football team badly needs its passing attack to take off.
Enter a versatile and very experienced wide receiver who spent his career tearing up FCS defenses.
Samori Toure arrives in Lincoln after having spent five years with the Montana Grizzlies. Toure redshirted in 2016 and first saw the field in 2017, making a considerable impact on the offense during his redshirt freshman year. Toure was a consistent contributor, catching 31 passes for a total of 553 yards and five touchdowns.
The next season, in 2018, Toure took a slight step back. He caught 37 passes, but he only had 440 receiving yards and a couple of touchdowns.
But in 2019, Toure took off. He was a threat to score in pretty much any and every scenario and was basically unstoppable. As a redshirt junior, Toure caught 87 passes for 1,495 yards and he scored 13 touchdowns along the way.
Nebraska badly needs that sort of production from a wide receiver.
Now, heading into 2021, the 6-3, 190 pound wide receiver from Portland, Oregon has a chance to help the Cornhuskers get back on track. Though he hasn’t played in the Big 10, Toure is experienced and versatile and can be the deep threat that Frost’s offense needs.
