Nebraska freshman RB Maurice Washington will not be academically eligible to participate in the upcoming campaign.
Washington (6'0/180) is currently trying to get up to speed academically -- he has not yet graduated from high school. Per a Nebraska spokesperson, though, even if he does graduate this summer, he still will not have enough core credits to be eligible to play this year. The Cornhuskers are standing by the running back and he could potentially apply for a waiver which would allow him an academic redshirt for the 2018 season. Washington was one of the crown jewels in HC Scott Frost's initial recruiting class in Lincoln. ESPN's Billy Tucker compared him to former USC RB Ronald Jones back in February. With Washington out of luck for the season, Nebraska figures to lean hard on Devine Ozigbo and Mikale Wilbon in the fall. Tre Bryant is a potential backfield option, too, but is still mending up from knee surgery and remains an uncertain quantity. May 17 - 4:33 PM
