About Blue

Can play cornerback or safety, according to his high school coach. Great speed will make him among the favorites for the 200-meter dash at the Texas state track meet. Two-year starter made 60 tackles, intercepted two passes and broke up 20 others as a senior. Offers were wide-ranging -- three came from Big Ten schools -- but did not include Texas or Texas A&M before he committed to Nebraska in late June. Blue's repertoire includes skill as an amateur movie maker, helped by his talents with a computer and other electronics.

Our take

According to McGuire, Blue is physically ready to play right away but would benefit in the long run from redshirting. That likely will hinge on health of the Huskers' secondary when preseason camp starts in August.
