Nebraska may need some running back reinforcements immediately next season.

Sevion Morrison (Tulsa, Oklahoma) continues to show flashes that he could help right away.

The Husker tailback recruit rushed for 171 yards on 23 carries, which included him breaking loose for a 93-yard touchdown, in Edison's 25-13 win against McAlester.

To top it off, Morrison returned an onside kick for a 42-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter as McAlester tried to rally.

Meanwhile, playmaker Will Nixon (Waco, Texas), continues to pile up big numbers.

The Husker recruit scored four of his team's five touchdowns in Midway's 35-15 win against Shoemaker. Nixon rushed for 233 yards on 33 carries and added one catch for 4 yards. He scored on runs of 1, 42, 5 and 11 yards.

Then there is Marvin Scott (Port Orange, Florida). The Husker running back recruit had three rushing touchdowns in Spruce Creek's 48-0 win against Ocala West Port.

Scott has 1,158 rushing yards (128.7 per game) this season.
