Husker quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco has been all over lately while recruiting for Nebraska, but he took some time Thursday to join Mike’l Severe on “The Bottom Line.”
“You try to get a feel for the who the young guy is and how people know him,” Verduzco said when asked what he’s looking for when he visits a recruit’s school. “And if you get a red flag, you try to run it down. But more often than not with quarterbacks, they’re for the most part pretty good guys, and there are typically never any issues.”
Verduzco also reflected on the Husker spring game and shared his thoughts on the quarterbacks.
“Did we miss some things? Yes,” Verduzaco said. “Did we have some issues? Of course. Will we get those ironed out? Absolutely. Overall I was pleased with how they performed.”
