LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Wide receiver Jamal Turner spent most of Nebraska's first spring football practice working at quarterback.
The Cornhuskers have a returning starter in Tommy Armstrong and a highly regarded top challenger in Johnny Stanton. But coach Bo Pelini said Saturday he wants to explore all options this spring.
Turner was recruited as a quarterback in 2011 but switched to receiver early his freshman year. He's made 60 catches for 762 yards and four touchdowns the past three seasons.
He was limited to eight games because of injury last season and caught 13 balls for 102 yards and a TD.
