LINCOLN — One of the defining images from last year’s Nebraska spring game washout was former Husker running back Rex Burkhead, in pads, darting from the locker room to NU’s Student Life Complex underneath Memorial Stadium.
Nebraska coaches, unable to show visiting prospects the game itself, ostensibly wanted Burkhead to meet and chat with a few recruits. Perhaps it worked; among the players who visited for the thunderstorms, linebacker Courtney Love and defensive end A.J. Natter eventually committed for the 2013 class.
