Spring Football Practice, 3.27

Scott Frost made no bones about his excitement level regarding his football team on Wednesday, near the midpoint of Nebraska's spring work. 

"I'm not just happy, I'm thrilled," Frost said when asked about how Nebraska's come back to work this week after being off for spring break last week. 

Frost said it's a sign of a mature football team and a group that understands what it wants to accomplish. 

A couple of other brief notes: 

Frost said sophomore running back Maurice Washington has been kept on as close to a normal schedule as possible since he returned from a court appearance in California earlier this month. Frost reiterated that Washington, "has bigger fish to fry," than spring football, but said it's good to keep him on a regular schedule when he's available for practice.

Frost said Washington's been doing a good job when he's played. On Wednesday, Washington worked mostly with the No. 1 offense in the periods open to reporters. 

Freshman Wan'Dale Robinson isn't quite 100 percent recovered from a minor hamstring strain, but Frost said he looked good even for being about 80 percent. 

Among the receivers that have come on through the midway of camp: redshirt freshman Andre Hunt and senior Jaron Woodyard. 

Secondary coach Travis Fisher says that sophomore defensive back Cam Taylor has been the most impressive player in his room so far this spring.
