Nebraska coach Bo Pelini spoke after Tuesday’s practice, the Huskers’ second with their full roster after starting preseason camp Aug. 4 with the mandatory 105-player group.
No major adjustment, Pelini said.
“Business as usual,” he said. “They haven’t gotten in there yet. A lot of the guys that came in, obviously, they don’t know the offense and the defense like these other guys, and we’re not going to slow down for them yet. They’ll get more involved once we get into scout work.”
Some other practice notes:
>> Asked which true freshmen appear the safest bets to play this season, Pelini said defensive end Avery Moss, defensive tackle Aaron Curry, I-back Imani Cross and possibly fullback Andy Janovich.
>> Newcomer Alonzo Moore, listed as a defensive back with the 2012 NU signing class, is working at receiver. “Fortunately for Alonzo and fortunately for us, he’s a very versatile guy who can do a lot of things well,” Pelini said.
>> Pelini said the Husker staff continues to work on Southern Mississippi, but NU players haven’t been exposed to much of the Eagles on the practice field yet. Southern Miss visits Memorial Stadium for the season opener on Sept. 1.
