2007 Outlook: After missing all of the 2006 season because of an injury, left-hander Wes Simmons is healthy and ready to make a contribution to the Husker staff this spring Continues NU’s trend of pulling players from Oklahoma, joining former Husker standouts Jeff Blevins and Steve Hale   Was a two-time all-state selection who went 9-1 with a 0.17 ERA at Tulsa (Okla.) Lincoln Christian as a senior in 2005 Is a hard-throwing left-hander who reaches the upper 80s with four pitches Working on being more consistent around the zone after a long layoff, but has progressed enough to push for a spot as a possible set-up man from the left side.
