- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall, 2011; Spring, 2012)
Junior Murat Kuzu will continue to add depth at I-back in a talented Husker backfield in the 2014 season. The 5-11, 200-pound Kuzu has battled injuries during his time in Lincoln, but is hopeful of being at full strength this fall. Kuzu joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on from Plano Senior High School, the same school that produced former Husker I-back Rex Burkhead.
Kuzu added depth at I-back, but did not see game action.
2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Kuzu added depth at I-back, but did not play in a game.
Kuzu redshirted in his first season in the program and worked on the scout team.
Before Nebraska (Plano Senior HS)
Kuzu joined the NU program as a walk-on after a strong prep career at Plano Senior High School in Texas. Kuzu rushed for better than 600 yards and three touchdowns as a senior, and had more than 400 receiving yards and five TD receptions, while also throwing for a touchdown. Kuzu was a second-team all-district selection for his efforts as a senior. Kuzu had a scholarship offer from Doane and interest from Southern Louisiana.
Murat is the son of Mustafa and Gulsum Kuzu and was born on May 19, 1993. He is a marketing major. Kuzu has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll twice. He has volunteered with Uplifting Athletes, Make-A-Wish, Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline and local hospital visits.
