Nebraska head coach Scott Frost is already facing pressure heading into his second season in that role.

The Cornhuskers finished last season with a 4-8 record, winning four of their final six after starting the campaign 0-6. They are now a nationally-ranked team heading into Saturday’s season opener against South Alabama.

However, the team’s depth took a major hit on Wednesday with news that wide receiver Andre Hunt and tight end Katerian Legrone have been suspended indefinitely.

“Redshirt Freshman Wide Receiver Andre Hunt and Redshirt Freshman Tight End Katerian Legrone will not be suiting up for the Huskers first game this Saturday,” KETV in Omaha reported.

Neither youngster was expected to play huge roles on offense this coming season. Though, Nebraska remains razor thin at the skill positions and had to rely on other young players last season.

Hunt was a three-star recruit from California during the 2018 class. Also a three-star recruit, Legrone was considered the 21st-best tight end of the class.
