Redshirt freshman fullback Bo Kitrell will look to earn playing time at fullback this spring, a spot where senior Andy Janovich returns after seeing extensive action the past three seasons.

Kitrell is a second generation Husker as his father, Barry, played fullback for the Huskers in the 1980s.
Kitrell redshirted and worked on the scout team in his first season with Nebraska.

As a senior, Kitrell was a first-team Class C-1 all-state pick on defense by the Associated Press, Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star, and also made the World-Herald’s All-Omaha area team.
