Nebraska lineman Spencer Long is starting to get noticed as premiere lineman around the country.
I know we need 5* recruits to be elite, but I am so proud of our walk ons, I would be an even bigger Husker fan if all our players were walk ons. Thanx Bo, for reanimating our walkon program & bringing these "Rudy" type players to the forefront again. Very unique to Nebraska. GBR
Considering the number of moves he's made on defense, and then switching over to offense, it's pretty impressive that he's had the kind of success that he has had, this soon.
It's also been said before, but a really smart kid who is going to do well beyond football.
Also interesting that it was Jake Long and not Spencer that Nebraska really coveted as a preferred walk-on.
This warms my heart. I know Spencer's Dad. He and I were in the Sig Ep house at UNL back in the late 70's. His Dad is one of my best friends from college and I have had the opportunity to meet the Long boys. They are fine young men and have made their parents very proud, needless to say.
