Plano’s all-time leading rusher is already making an impression at Nebraska.
Rex “Superman” Burkhead was reportedly moved to the top huddle for 7-on-7 drills. But, just like at Plano, he won’t get his No. 20 immediately. He will reportedly wear No. 22 this year. At Plano, he wore No. 17 as a freshman in 2005 because the No. 20 was already taken by Alex Lott.
Burkhead is Plano’s all-time leading rusher and compiled more than 6,500 all-purpose yards in four seasons at Plano. During those seasons, Plano went a combined 40-11, including a 23-4 record in his final two seasons.
