Cornerback Trai Mosley redshirted in his first season in the Husker program in 2014 and was impressive on the scout team defense. The 5-10, 170-pound Mosley was one of the breakout performers of the Huskers’ 2015 spring practice, putting himself in position to compete for playing time in a talented Nebraska secondary this fall. He could also see action on special teams for the Huskers. Mosley capped his strong spring with an interception in the Red-White Spring game.
