Husker Camp Countdown: No. 28 Marvin Scott

Marvin Scott

Marvin Scott

5-9, 200 • Freshman • Running back

Nebraska has a No. 1 running back in Dedrick Mills. The race for No. 2 is fully on.

Unless NU intends to use Wan’Dale Robinson for that role again — and risk his health — then it will turn its focus to a group of youngsters like Rahmir Johnson, Ronald Thompkins, Sevion Morrison and Scott, the power-lifting, rock-built back who racked up a lot of mileage at his Florida high school.

He rushed for more than 2,700 yards over his final two seasons and showed a downhill, no-nonsense style with power and a nice amount of elusiveness. He has a good feel for reading zone holes — knowing when it’s open on the front or back side — and sheds arm tackles.

Scott may have to work on his pass-catching skills, but his upper-body strength — honed as a state champion power-lifter — should help as a pass blocker.

We like Scott a lot.
