ORLANDO, Fla. — We’ll have ton of fleshed-out notes later for you guys, but here are a few morsels to munch on for now:
>> Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini wouldn’t confirm Wednesday that wide receivers coach Rich Fisher is his new recruiting coordinator — as suggested by a report at FootballScoop.com — but the first-year assistant is “one of the options.”
“I’m still weighing it,” Pelini said of his decision.
>> Backup redshirt freshman quarterback Brion Carnes gets the question constantly: Is he so frustrated at his lack of game snaps as Taylor Martinez’s backup that he’d consider transferring?
His answer Wednesday: “I haven’t really considered it,” he said. “I’m with Nebraska. I haven’t really thought about transferring. Other people ask me that all the time, but going to college is about other things. Football is not forever.”
>> Wearing a blue jersey, freshman Bronson Marsh worked with the quarterbacks. Marsh was the offensive scout team MVP in 2011 at the position; he moved there after Broekemeier got hurt.
Pelini said he’s “99 percent sure” Marsh — who broke the state’s career passing records at Millard South High School — will move back to safety in the spring.
>> To a man on Nebraska’s offense, one South Carolina defender stood out: Defensive end Melvin Ingram. It’s the guy head coach Bo Pelini identified, too, as the Gamecocks’ best player.
>> Defensive tackle Jared Crick was pleased with his current recovery from a torn pectoral muscle, but no – he wouldn’t have been ready to play even if NU was playing for the national title.
>> Tight end J.T. Kerr is no longer on the team, an NU spokesman confirmed, and Bo Pelini told Nebraska’s Rivals.com site that cornerback Joshua Mitchell did not make the trip with the team.
