The rosters for Saturday’s Red-White Spring Game have been announced, and like Coach Bo Pelini’s first two seasons, the teams appear to be fairly evenly divided.
The White team will be quarterbacked by sophomore Cody Green and senior Latravis Washington. The offense will have plenty of firepower with I-backs Roy Helu Jr. and Dontrayevous Robinson, along with receiving targets Niles Paul, Mike McNeill and Dreu Young. Up front, center Mike Caputo and tackle D.J. Jones are the leaders of the White offensive line.
Defensively, the White squad boasts a number of players with significant starting experience, led by junior defensive tackle Jared Crick and senior end Pierre Allen. Sean Fisher heads the linebacking corps, while the secondary features Alfonzo Dennard, DeJon Gomes and Rickey Thenarse.
Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson leads the White coaching staff, along with Barney Cotton, John Papuchis, Marvin Sanders and offfensive graduate assistant Curt Baldus.
Redshirt freshman Taylor Martinez and sophomore Kody Spano will quarterback the Red unit, while redshirt freshman Ron Kellogg III is expected to see action on both teams. Keith Williams and Marcel Jones lead the Red offensive line, with I-back Rex Burkhead and receivers Brandon Kinnie and Curenski Gilleylen among the top offensive weapons.
Defensively, sophomores Baker Steinkuhler and Cameron Meredith lead the Red front four, with Will Compton the most experienced linebacker on the Red squad. Veterans Eric Hagg, Prince Amukamara and Anthony West will patrol the Red secondary, while all-conference place-kicker/punter Alex Henery heads up the Red special teams.
Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini heads up the Red coaching staff, along with Tim Beck, Ron Brown, Mike Ekeler, Ted Gilmore and defensive graduate assistant Ross Watson.
Kickoff for Saturday’s spring game is set for 1 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. ? Tickets are still available at huskers.com

Hey Husker Fans! It’s been quite a while since we have blogged about the team but now that Spring practices have begun this week we will have few more articles on the blog leading up to the Spring game on April 17th. There really hasn’t been too much news out of Spring practices so far and Coach Pelini is not releasing any information regarding the depth chart. Pelini has basically said that every position is opened and all players will be competing for a starting job.
Here are some notes that we have heard out of practice so far:
- Mike McNeil moved to slot receiver
- QB Battle between Cody Green, Kody Spano, Taylor Martinez and LaTravis Washingon is going on. Expect Green to to be the guy in Spring ball followed by Spano. The coaches do want to get Martinez on the field especially in the wildcat formations.
- Ricky Henry and Zac Lee will both set out Spring practices as they recover from off season surgeries.
- Mike Smith moving from tackle to center. (Says coaches thought he was to light to be playing tackle and could be better used at center)
- Rex Burkhead is now up to 210 lbs and Dontrayevous Robinson is at 235 lbs. Expect both players to see quite a bit of action at the running back position along with Roy Helu.
- Marcus Mendoza asked to be moved to corner back so the coaches have moved him over to the defensive side of the ball.
That’s pretty much it so far as the team is just a few practices into the 15 practices that are allowed. Let’s all hope for a injury free spring and we see some new players really setup on both sides of the ball.
Tickets are still available for the game but they are going fast. As of Monday, the athletic office has sold 60,000 tickets to the game. So act fast and head on over to huskers.com and order yours today.
It’s a big day for high school seniors today as they sign their letter of intent to the university of their choice. Things have been busy in Lincoln this morning as the fax machine has stayed hot with 17 LOI’s faxed in so far. Keep checking back as we will be updating the list as we hear of new ones coming in.
One player who verbally committed to the Huskers will not be joining the team as he was not able to get his grades up to bar. Deandre Byrd will be looking to go the JUCO route.
