Huskers Shine in Classroom

By NU Athletic Communications
Nebraska football enjoyed a strong performance in the classroom in the spring, as 65 members of the Husker program earned a spot on the Big 12 Commissioner's Spring Honor Roll announced this week.

The list of honorees was highlighted by three players (Austin Cassidy, Sean Fisher and Dillon Schrodt) who posted perfect 4.0 GPAs during the spring semester. Fisher has a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA through his first six semesters at Nebraska.

To earn a place on the Commissioner's Honor Roll, student-athletes must have recorded a grade-point average of 3.00 or higher during the previous academic semester.
